Ruh roh. Matt Millen made some comments about Willis and Bowman's "worst performance" last week and now Willis is not too happy. That guy is going to be smashing on Thursday!
Looks like Freddie P has gotten the best of Willis to the point where criticism bruises the ego.
This team is still so new to the 'notoriety' bug, they don't know how to handle success led to failure/flaw since the team had been an overall failure before last year (with no previous media expectations/reaction).
Welcome to the spotlight 49ers, this won't be the first time you're castrated by the media after losing to an East Coast 'darling'.
Love how willis didn't know who he was and that he was a player. Probably thought he was just a media guy and said I would love to see him come out and do what we do for 16 games. Millen is dumbass though. Willis shouldn't have said anything but at least he apologized. Not really even a story but that's the media for you. Might as well say no comment to everything because the media is just waiting to make a story out of nothing. There aren't many good writers out there anymore. A controversial story gets more readers than a well thought out well researched well written piece.
And honestly in the game I think the defense kind of just gave up in the 4th the way the offense was playing/the play calls. We gave up like 100 of the 150 rushing yards after we gave up so I am not going to worry about it. We were doing fine until all the ints. Plus he did a good job of holding them to 4 field goals. It's a much different game if the ST and offense didn't play like crap. Not saying the defense was perfect; we had problems on 3rd downs but it would have been much different.
