How good is Ahmad Brooks?

We have the best 4 starting LBs in football by a wide margin. That being said, i would like to see some well timed and organized blitzes or pressures that can either produce sacks, turnovers, or QB hurries. Seems sometimes we are satisfied with sending 3-4 rushers and dropping everyone else back.

we started doing that very well.
we did against the saints in a crucial spot it produced a sack and turnover but was wiped out.

with aldon back to form with the way brooks is playing.
they set the edge and shut down the run.
how many times did the redskins run action hoping aldon would crash in but he kept his integrity and made rg3 choke.
same thing happens on the other side as well
first team all pro, just put him there now
He's played amazingly well. Better than I could have ever imagined.
Underrated player who gets overshadowed by willis, bowman and the smith brothers
He was always my favorite of the four along with Willis. He is an absolute hunter and runs down Quarterbacks like they're the fat kid in gym class.
I've always been high on Brooks. The guy has come up with a lot of big plays. Very happy he is a 49er

Good thing the league doesn't test for Brooks

all that im saying is brooks is playing the best ball in his life..add that to the beast play of aldon that we can expect for the rest of the season meaning more pressure more sacks more fumble more picks and our offense only going to get better with crabtree and more football for manningham we r going to be very scary playoff time..no1 will want to face us..feels good knowing that the best is yet to come ..

how f**ked is it that aldon will likely still post 10+ sacks after missing 5 games?

Proud of my boy last night. After all the bull#$%^&* last week, comes back even stronger...destroys RGIII but like a true classy Niner, helps him up. The NFL should be fining players like the Hawks who talk about choking out coaches, Matthews for his clear "intentions" on CK, etc. NOT guys like Brooks. Textbook.

this. that was a b******t fine.

And boy was I wrong about brooks. what a player. I've been playing close attention to him this season and he is playing out of his mind.

Gotta give props to whitner too. He is having a solid season.
more impressive than his pass rushing is his holding the edge on run plays. IDK how many times last night I saw him drive the tackle or TE back 3-4 yards into the backfield , forcing the RB to cut it inside to be met by Bowman or Willis.

its pretty impressive how he jerks the te or tackle back a few yards. totally toying with them.

I would much rather be the hot team coming in. The NY Giants were 7-7 in 2011 before catching fire, and won the whole thing.
