So I've decide to rewatch the game on my DVR. First thing I noticed is that on the very first GB drive the Niners go into a dime package on obvious passing downs and take out Willis leaving Bowman as the loan middle LB. Cox seems to take the place of Willis.
The second thing I've noticed is when Willis is in all the plays seem to be designed away from him. Whether its a pass or run, GB plays the other side of the field if possible.
Based on the way f*gio is using Willis, I think it will be very difficult for him to have good stats.
Edit: Now in the second series, Willis is in for Bowman in the dime.....interesting. Again, they dont even throw his way (so far).
Edit: Every run play GB does, they send a Lineman to the second level to hit Willis. Bowman roams free.
