I also think that Pat is becoming a little jealous of Bow. Shortly after the ATL game when Willis was interviewed, Pat basically said Bow got lucky. I wonder if he's feeling like the odd man out?
BTW, you also see Bow giving a pep talk to the D while Willis is walking around mic'd up.
lol you think the 49ers defense doesnt respect Patrick Willis because he doesnt give Ray Lewis speeches? Willis leads by example. Hes never NOT been a pro bowler. He never commits penalties, he never loses his cool, and he never costs the team with stupid mistakes.
Willis is the ultimate pro. An elite defender, ALWAYS around the football, and a respectful person. He doesnt have the kind of personality thats going to scream a huddle of guys into a chant, but he speaks up anyways. Its part of being a leader.
For you to even suggest that he isnt the most respected player on the team along with Frank Gore, is total lunacy.
Its fans like you that make me realize that there were probably even negative
fans back in the 80's talking crap about Joe Montana, no matter what he accomplished.
