they both came out of the gate as elite talents who took little time to get acclimated and start dominating their sports.
3 straight pro bowls for Willis to begin his career, soon to be 3 time All-Pro, well on his way to a HOF career if he stays healthy. since his rookie season, he leads the entire NFL by far in total tackles, with an amazing 467 combined tackles in just 3 seasons.
Lincecum has won the NL CY twice in his first 2 full seasons as a major leaguer, and is 40-17 with a 2.90 career ERA and has struck out 676 batters in just 598.2 career innings, with an incredible 68 quality starts in just 89 career starts. thats about 76% of his starts have been quality starts.
Both are clearly HOF talents, bot are the absolute best at what they do in their sports, and were very lucky as a fanbase to have gotten them on our teams.
