Willis has been asked to drop back into coverage more and more often. So when he's "standing around" in the center of the field, he's in man coverage on the tight end or running back to make sure they don't slip out for a late screen or quick strike.
lol all these excuses to cover up what happen just cause every one thinks Willis makes no mistake when in fact yes it isn't hard to just tackle a ball carrier as one of the best MLB in the game...
Watch the game over again. 80%+ of the time in that game when the ball is already thrown or hand off to a ball carrier, Willis either did not shed block to get to the ball carrier or when he was free, jogged or walked to the ball carrier and didn't speed up or rush to the ball carrier to make a tackle like usual.
He was "rusty" or w/e excuse he wanted to use in that game. He came off of the bye week lazy and didn't give the 49ers the best chance to win on defense in that game.
Note: Consider the fact, he just recently married, which I didn't previously know before I made the thread, most likely it's cause too much fun time in bed... Hope he learned his lesson and get back on track here on... Cause that performance on defense by Willis was worse than CK coming off the bench for this lousy tie.
