Willis agrees to extension

Patrick Willis of the San Francisco 49ers is arguably the best middle/inside linebacker in the NFL.

He's now also one of the richest.

Willis agreed to a five-year, $50-million contract extension Tuesday. Willis had two years left on his deal.

Willis went to the Pro Bowl in two of his first three seasons, making him one of the bright young stars of the game.

With Ray Lewis getting up in the years, Willis has taken over the title of the best inside/middle linebacker in the league.

This is merely the opinion of a writer who whould not a good linebacker if one fell on him...aside from Ray Lewin, I could name a dozen who are better or at least as good.

But alas, I won't because I don't have the time.  Nor do I care to debate the issue.
First your spelling makes me want to blow my head off, second you obviously do not know or watch football if you think you can name linebackers as good as this kid. Congratulations your an idiot.

Panther, wake up. Willis is far and away the best linebacker in the business. And pirsco, what a crappy article. It seems like your 3yr old wrote it. Willis made pro bowl. Willis is good LB. Willis gets money he deserves. THREE consecutive pro bowls. GO Niners. I'm sure the panthers fan still thinks dan morgan is the best LB- Yeaah right!

Ok, so let me hear these "dozen" linebackers who are as good or better than willis. You don't have a clue bud.

This is just a cop-out. You insult the writer, and then you cannot back your statement up. First of all, it's Ray Lewis, not Lewin.

Second, if you really could name 12 linebackers, 12 out of 32 NFL teams, that are better than Patrick Willis, then you should have. Take this for example: your friend says, "Saddam Hussein is the worst person who ever lived." And you say, "No, there are at least a dozen worse people out there."Well... we're waiting on the evidence... is it coming any time soon...? Nope. And now people disregard your post as fluff and a waste of time.

Also, you spelled, "Would" wrong, there is no h. Also, that first sentence has no grammatical structure or sense at all.

Also, you're an idiot for using the word, "alas." For some reason people think it makes them look smart when they use words like that, but it really just makes you look like a douche bag.

Hardly a Clock Cleaning Hit by Pee Wee football standards even. I consider a hard hit as one that would uncleat an athelete or drive them to the ground with the other player on top ie. a Pancake Block. Are you really admin and think that hit was something to brag about? Look for the OTHER Purple team in the NFL for your hard hits highlights on You Tube as you will find no shortage of CLOCK CLEANING hits there.

It helps that your head coach was a great Middle Linebacker and has the rest of the defense funnel the ball carrier to the middle for you to get tackles, or schemes the defense to have you make the tackles.  Now he is good, but I don't think he is by himself.  Ryans is very good.  Plus a lot of teams are playing the 4 linebacker scheme so there are only 16-18 middle linebacker starters in the league.  Funny someone meantioned Farrior who is an ILB and still competes with MLBs.  But Farrior is old now and not that great anymore.

Deserved? Yes.  Class by himself? Nope.

He deserves it. I hate that it happened, because that's five more years of facing him twice a season. But the 49ers would have been fools not to extend him.

Gold panther, you are hilarious. I live in the East coast and I have heard about how good Willis is. Willis is very good. Your comments seem to imply that only Ray Lewis, (not Ray Lewin) is the best linebacker in the NFL simply because he owns a gun, tried to kill someone and terrorizes women and kids. Well if that is your standard then Patrick Willis is not good at all. He is downright horrible. :(
You claim that there are 12 or more players who are better than Willis and yet you fail to name even one. This shows that you are a liar or an idiot. Which one are you? You could have at least name that guy from Carolina. I heard that he is good. Lol.
