you dont win superbowls with middle linebackers that was proven last year. Willis struggles against top tier tight ends. yeah is a HOF but so is that white dude from the bears urlacher no championships. Get while the gettin is good and get something for this guy. Trade him away resign Aldon, Kaep, Crabs, Iupati. I would rather any of those four then willis. Its not like I dislike him I love the guy he has been an incredible player since day one. I just feel that having Bowman is good enough and we would have a more complete team if we are able to sign all of the previously mentioned players.
Willis is the best LB in coverage. These TE that run like WR are a mismatch for any LB.

Actually it did. Defense bashed the hell out of us in the first half and prevented kap from going wild in the first half as well, and a cheap defensive play prevented a game winning touchdown.
Playing calling was garbage in the first half. LMJ fumble, not going for it on fourth down and settling for 3 cost them that game oh not converting on first and goal.

Willis is a tackling machine but he sucks at blitzing I dont think he could done what Bowman did. Bowman is future.
he has done it already. our team is NOT a blitzing team, this is something new. and usually when they're both in they run a stunt blitz and the blockers go to willis so bowman gets shine.
like i said, their stats are even because one has one side and the other has the other. last game one was out so bowman had license to go everywhere on both sides while willis replacement job was to just not be out of position.
willis and bowman are players who are not out of position and have the license to make plays.
if there's only 1 person there to make them, they're going to feast
if they're 2 they're both going to get an even amount.
like i said bad idea. he isn't even in his prime yet
