I love Justin as a player and I will not let the media turn me against him, just a bunch of crap how they have to take away from certain players to prop another on the top of the mountain. The guys on this team work very well together as a unit, they are coached well and they play hard. A few guys shine based on many different factors, what sets Aldon apart is the speed, strength, and balance of a an his size.
Great job Aldon, MVP!!!!!
Of course justin helps. He helps the whole defense. But that as not the main reason aldons performance dropped. I think he simply wore down, was banged up, and he probably let the pressure get to him a bit.
But that doesnt change the fact that if it wasnt for a hold, and him going for a strip instead of a sack he would have had brady twice. Then against Wilson, he got good pressure several times, but neither him nor brooks could get the squirly b*****d down. Its a game of inches.
