I thought he would have had more
So where are all those people who say Bowman is better than Willis now?
Earned.
Barrows says its the 4th time he has won the award
• Patrick Willis was named Defensive Player of the Week after the 49ers' 34-0 win over the Jets, the fourth time he was won that award. Said Willis: "Anytime I win an award, I want to start by thanking my teammates. Especially that front seven. I'll say it again, I don't think I'd be half the guy I am today without those guys."Read more here: http://blogs.sacbee.com/49ers/archives/2012/10/security-breach-harbaugh-reveals-f-soft-infiltrated-49ers-facility.html#storylink=cpy

Probably still around. One week will not change that either. I believe pat is better but common now look at bowman against green bay and mini. Some cheesy title for a week a career does not make.

I mean I love Bowman as much as the rest of us and I'm not denying now good he is, but Willis is still the face of this defense.

IMO they complement each other. Bowman wouldn't be as good without Willis next to him, and vice versa.

Well Pat was still good before Bowman.
