BTW, people can become jealous or insecure even with friends.
Willis is a future Hall of Famer. What the hell is he insecure about?
If I really have to spell it out, I guess I can.
Human nature - Willis is use to being the shining star 6 time pro-bowl all everything 49er LB. Bowman comes along and has clearly stolen some of his shine. Its too the point where the coaches rave more about Bowman than Pat. The media even is beginning to whisper that Bow might be the better of the two. Heck, look no further than the threads on this forum. Many on here think Bow is better than Pat and frankly a decent case can be made.
So the question isn't whether or not Pat is a HOFer. Its whether or not he's able to cope with being the second best LB on his team. or so its said. That doesn't mean that he walks around hating Bowman, it just means how is he coping with the fan fair Bowman is now getting, even from the team. If you notice in the video, Bowman was the one giving the pep talk to the LB core, on two occasions.
Willis is an elite pro and tremendous role model, but he's not a natural leader, vocally anyway. It will be interesting to see how this plays out. I have my doubts we'll keep both in the long run.
