DIVISION NEWS: Patrick Willis is a monster

Odd game in SF today where the 49ers surprisingly beat the Bucs. Bryant Young played his last game in SF before he retires. Jon Gruden rested his starters in the second half, even though they had a chance to push the Hawks into the final week for the #3 seed. He said it was about injury concern, but you have to wonder if he wants Dallas in the second round. Lots of old Hawks making plays with D-Jack scoring and Jerramy Stevens scoring a couple.

Most striking (pun intended) to me was Patrick Willis’ line: 20 tackles, 2 sacks and 1 FF

The guy is already leading the NFL in tackles in his rookie year. I’m pretty sure we’ve got a young Ray Lewis in our division now. Not good.
