Derek Who?

p-willis.pngWillis had his best day of practice in a 49ers uniform. He drilled WR Brandon Williams, who came across the middle to catch a pass. Then, Willis made a big stop on RB Thomas Clayton. He showed perfect form on his tackles. His goal on every hit, he says is to “wrap and grab cloth.”

When the 49ers did some “live” 11-on-11 work that featured the reserves, Willis was all over the place. He made a tackle of Clayton at the line of scrimmage, and leveled FB Steve Dildine after a 2-yard completion from QB Luke Getsy.

The morning practice concluded when Willis recorded an interception off a pass that CB Sammy Joseph deflected that was intended for C.J. Brewer.

  1. nice

  2. nice.

  3. Exactly! Cut Derek and Kwame and make room for young players that will be relevant next year.

  4. It’s too bad you guys are so disloyal to DSmith. Yeah he’s on the decline but his injury obviously affected him quite a bit last year. Regardless the guy has been a warrior for us and deserves more respect.

  5. It is what it is, if Willis is doin the damn thing so be it. Thank you Derek, but the better player will be on the field come hell or high water.

  6. bye bye Derek

  7. Fuck you tripod! The rivalry will always be alive you 40 year old virgin faggott! Like I said grow a dick, and become a true 49er fan!

  8. Did anyone watch the 49ers tranning camp 07 on Nfl Network @ 5:00pm PT(07/31/07)?

  9. Well according to Direct TV guide it was post to air at 5:oopm PT & 8:00pm ET beacuse instead they prodcast the Dirty Cowgirls tranning camp.

  10. NFL network never shows niners stuff when they say they are going to. Cowboys=old rivalry=retarded fans=Texas queers=brokeback mountain=Cowboy Hater. Fuck off gay bait.

  11. It’s not about loyality Sean, it’s about wanting to win.

  12. Hell yeah, that’s sweet. Get ’em Willis.

  13. eh………..he did ok, I guess.

  14. Just like N.F.L. live on E.S.P.N. all they care about is A.F.C. West and N.F.C.? With the Eagles,Cowboys,Giants and redskins report.the bill walsh death story was the last story they talked about.Willis is a man on a mission and the only one that can stop him is “D.Smith”?hahahah lmao.

  15. Sean…no Derek Smith doesn’t deserve respect. He is not that good, never has been. No penetration and if he ever does get it, he missed the tackle. He is nothing special and the injury last season is just an excuse the Smith homers use. He sucks, and the sooner Willis is in his spot the better

  16. fuck nfl network, they show the cowdicks instead of the 49ers

  17. Once again the niners get fucked over.

  18. 49ersnews c’mon you and i both know Derek Smith deserves respect the guys been starting for a long time and has exsceeded in tackle expecations. i agree that pat willis is better and smith has no business being the starter this year but the man deserves respect, its pat’s turn to rule the D.

  19. Yeah i got pissed at NFL network because not only did they change the schedule but they replaced it with a cowboy game. Out of all the teams they put the cowgirls FUCKKKKKKKK!!!!!

  20. Man, i love willis already but there’s no need to disrespect Derek Smith. He played his heart out for the 49ers. Never whined about anything and just did what was asked of him.

  21. Dont everyone start sucking his dick just yet….. Yea I’m all for Willis too, but you have to remember all these plays hes making is against the second team right now. When he performs like this against the starters, then we all can start danglin on his sack. Dont be so quick to shit on D.Smith either, come faithfuls this guy has been a rock for this D, he knows his time is coming but he is still a valuable player to this team and mentor for the youngsters.

  22. So who gets the start?

  23. I don’nt know boys, I have NFL network and the guide says training camp is next (49ER’S)

  24. Its time to get rid of that loser D. Smith finally. DOES ANY1 KNOW IF INSIDE TRAINING CAMP IS STILL GOING TO COME ON I HEARD A COMMERCIAL SAYING THAT THE PACKERS WERE COMING ON THATS NOT FAIR THE COWGIRLS CAME ON TODAY JUST CAUSE R COACH PASSES AWAY WE DONT GET ANY MORE TIME ON TV WATS UP WITH THAT!

  25. Second team or not, I hear good reviews so far from P Willy. He’s hungry for that GOLD out west. Does anyone know how early you need to show up for training camp?

  26. 408niner get to camp about hour early then u will have to wait in line but then u can get good seats

  27. Medford thank you man! Just want to add, D Smith was alright. What bugged the shit out of me was that yea he had 100 tackles a game but they were at least 5 yards down the play. They came to him not him to them. He isn’t aggressive enough like Willis. “What you talking ’bout Willis?” I mean yea I was talking ’bout him.

  28. Its me again speaking on another D.Smith topic. LIKE I SAID LAST TIME IF YOU LEAD THE TEAM IN TACKLES AND YOU ARE A LEADER ON YOUR DEFENSE AND WHEN YOU GET HURT THE DEFENSE PLAYS BETTER I HAVE TO ASK, “WHY IN THE HELL IS HE ON THE TEAM”. IF THE OTHER TEAM IS GAINING 8 TO 10 YARDS BEFORE YOU TACKLE THEM YOU AINT DID SHIT. DAMN SMITH! HE AINT THE ANSWER FOR THE 4-3 OR 3-4, BEFORE THE INJURY OR AFTER. MLB OF THE FUTURE (P.WILLS AND B.MOORE) DONT FORGET ABOUT MOORE, THAT GUY IS READY
