You can always count on Willis to make the open field tackle, most consistent player. J Smith a seasoned veteran with a motor that never stops, Bowman is the jack of all trades, Golson scares people, A Smith's full potential has yet to be released.. love this D

The players on this D are insane....the 'Backers are hands down best unit in the NFL....Brooks is our worst Lb and he would probably be the #1 LB on 15-20 teams..
It really makes me smile to know that Ahmad Brooks is our worse linebacker :-). What a luxury. With that said, it really all flows through Patrick Willis (1a) and Justin Smith (1b). I also think there are more sacks out there for Brooks and maybe even Willis if they send him in because the Smith Brothers are probably going to get even more attention with the way they have been going off the last few weeks.
