Are we all forgetting that the 49ers had an awful team when Willis got the record? I'd rather Kuechly not get the record because not only does this stat not signify that we have a good defense, but because this record could also mean that we have a lousy defense with only one good tackler. DROY is good enough for me.
I can totally agree with what you have said.
But I want the record and a good defensive year. Maybe too much to ask, but I'm asking anyway.
