Patrick Willis. Everyone else would look out of position without Pat cleaning up so many mistakes. He is so good stopping the run it allows us to play that shell coverage. We have outstanding players everywhere but im taking Pat. First game against Arizona on monday night he had 12(?) tackles and stripped Edge. From day 1 hes been the best player on our defense.
Absolutely impossible for me to single out one specific player in a unit full of studs.
So instead, I will give props to an often overlooked player in Sopoaga. He's in there gobbling up double teams and keeping the big uglies off Pat and Bow so they can roam free and wreak havoc on opposing offenses.
