NaVorro Bowman is THE MAN!

James Andrews will perform the surgery. Doctors seem optimistic 6–8 months recovery time. But he realistically be practicing before the season starts?

Don't doubt him. If it can be done, he'll be ready. If we open against the seacoks, he'll be ready.

Make a case. The blanket statement followed by "and it's not even close" eliminates any and all credibility.

Willis and Bowman also have to deal with the each other.Kinda hard to get tackles when Willis is right there all the time.Luke is all alone

But Bowman still put better numbers than Luke despite having to deal with Willis.

NaVorro Bowman's ACL surgery has concluded, per source. It went well.
ANyone who speculates about Bowman coming back in 2014, for opening day, for the seashawks game or whatnot will be summarily SHOT IMMOLATED and DEFENESTRATED simultaneously.

This guy is way way too important to get greedy about. Let the rehab takes its course and let him return naturally with a comfortable ramp up. If he's in uniform in 2014, great. If he needs longer no problem. I can't imagine him practicing before Thanksgiving. Contact by December, maybe. If not that's cool too.
Every time I see the pic of him getting ready to go in for surgery it cracks me up. Dudes a beast. Heal well, and dont rush back.
MCL must not have been as bad as they thought if they are going in all ready. I say he will be back around week 4 if he isn't ready for game 1.
Please come back 100%
They should PUP him for the first 6 or 7 weeks next season and let that knee really heal. Others can hold the fort down so to speak.

This. I'm expecting late November, in terms of actually playing. I don't expect him to begin practicing until sometime in mid October, giving him plenty of time to get right and get back in the flow of things.
As one writer speculated, the combination of Bowman's injury and Willis' age may lead the 49ers to spend a mid-round (one of the 3rds) on an inside linebacker. The way this defense is built, that position is critical. It would be great if Moody turned out to be the guy but if a value is there at 3 or 4, I would not be surprised to see a LB.

Funny thing about his quote is it can be taken multiple ways a) he believes the video is possible or 2) he thinks 49ers fans are nuts
