  1. This kid is amazing. I think there has to be something said about learning under Willis. Can’t wait to see how Aldon continues to develop!

  2. Trio of Pat, Aldon, and NaVorro is the BEST in the NFL! Smith has DeMarcus Ware-potential, Bowman is just in on every play, and Willis is the NFC’s version of Ray Lewis (in his prime) at this moment and will continue to be the face of the franchise. Defense is stifling!
