I think we finally have a Defense full of true football players for the first time in years. Rob Ninkovich has been a huge asset to this defense and may be one of the most instinctive players on the team. He reminds me a lot of Tedy Bruschi with his football smarts. Like Tedy, Rob isn't an athletic freak but is a very aware player who makes consistent plays and has a knack for finding a way to the football. Also, I just wanted to say that Gregory has been an upgrade at safety for us. He's another instinctive player that makes consistent plays. I was really impressed with the 1 on 1 open field match ups last game where he was able to make quick tackles to save potential long gain plays and get our offense back on the field. This defense has just come together so much since earlier on in the season. If we can sign Talib long term and the younger players continue to improve. Watch out NFL!
