So, what separates the other people from Willis. Also, is CJ considered in the discussion. For me, best fit for our team I'd pick:

1. Von Miller
2. CJ
3. Patrick Willis

Overall:

1. Watt
2. Von Miller
3. CJ

I'm glad that I'm not insane and that it wasn't just me that saw everyone sinking to Troofax's level.

Also, it may just be because I'm on my phone, but the picture of the Downs Syndrome child is not visible so thanks for removing it whoever it was.

I can't believe out of everyone in the NFL, the consensus has been Von Miller and Calvin Johnson. I mean don't get me wrong they are both Elite players, but how is adrian peterson not in the discussion more? the dude carried a team to the playoffs on a 2000 yard season with all the focus on him on the offense. I guarentee you that if he was in the back field, big ben could play action all day because he poses that much of a threat to the defense.

That's how I feel and why I voted for him. We have a Receiver in Antonio Brown, Plaxico Burress, Jerricho Cotchery and for now, Emmanuel Sanders. Yes, none of them are Calvin Johnson, not even close, but we don't have an elite Running Back, we don't have a consistent running back. A.B. and the others would be more than substantial with AP running the football. That's an offensive attack that people, no matter how much they try, still haven't been able to completely shut down.

Can't argue with that. He would be a transcendent player in our offense even when he wasn't running the ball. Someone the D could not afford not to account for.

Willis isn't at the top of the heap only because we have much bigger weaknesses than ILB. Remember, we're not comparing Patrick Willis to Larry Foote, we're comparing Patrick Willis to Von Miller here.

if our defensive scheme were different, JJ Watt would be at the top followed very closely by Von Miller and JPP.
