Bowman is awesome, but Willis established himself as the best ILB in the league the second he stepped onto the field as a rookie. The defense wasn't loaded at the time either. Willis played next to guys like Derek Smith, Tully Banta-Cain, Mark Roman, Michael Lewis, Nate Clements, Manny Lawson, Marques Douglas. We thought most of those guys were pretty good, but compared to our current unit, they really were a bunch of scrubs.
