Many analysts and fans have compared our LB core to arguably the greatest LB core of all time, the vaunted New Orleans Saints Dome Patrol. IMHO Ricky Jackson, Pat Swilling, Vaughn Johnson and Sam Mills were never to be compared to. Their mixture of pass rushing, run stuffing and tackling were incomparable. I remember when I was younger, the Chronicle's Sporting Green would dedicate pages of coverage of that one unit alone for a week before we played them.
It's time for our unit to do something that the Dome Patrol has never done and that is to win a Super Bowl. There is no doubt that Willis and Bowman are better than Mills and Johnson as ILBs. At OLB, they are equal at stopping the run, but Jackson and Swilling are better than Smith and Brooks in pass rushing. Jackson and Swilling destroyed OTs by themselves on 3rd down. Swilling with speed and Jackson with power.
Well here we are in the SuperDome and it's time they put the nation on notice and wreak havoc. Prove it this Sunday, and you'll forever be on the pages of Wikipedia
