it is the guy we built the defense around.
he's healthy now and it shows. the beauty about the core is that each one takes care of their responsibilities amazingly.
so nobody can really hog stats like other lb's in the nfl who get all the tackles for their team cause they're covering for others.
bowman out, willis was killing
you see when willis was out bowman immediately started killing but that's because there are more plays to be made when someone is gone.
i had an argument about this recently. someone tried to tell me there was a better core and i said it's not even CLOSE
not even close.
the defense this year the front 7 is lights out NOW but it hasn't been all year due to aldon being out and injuries
but that helped develop the secondary into actually being able to cover wr's
so now if they don't even have to cover them for longer than 2 seconds, i don't see what you do against us other than throw short passes and hope for the best.
