That wasn't the point. The point was anyone can take a slice of a players season and it would appear they are struggling.
Timmons season as a whole was great and he was a big part of the reason for some of our wins.
Unlike Woodley, we seem to be getting the most out of our contract with him.
99% of the people who don't like Timmons will NEVER like him because they didn't think he deserved to be a first rounder...
Kind of funny to compare the numbers between an "underachiever" like Timmons, and the guy who most consider to be the most complete ILB in the league right now, Patrick Willis:
Tackles - Willis 120, Timmons 106
Sacks - Willis .5, Timmons 6
FF - Willis 2, Timmons 2
INTs - Willis 2, Timmons 3
Now, we can argue both sides all night long as to what these numbers mean and the impact of their teammates.......Willis has fewer sacks because he doesn't get asked to blitz as much becuse they already have a pass rush. Timmons has to do more because he is lined up beside Larry Foote, not Navarro Bowman etc.
Point is, you can't argue the similarities in the numbers with the lone exception being Timmons' sack total. I have watched them both and while Willis is a machine, I don't see as huge a gap between him and Timmons as some here make it out to be. And, coincidentally, these two guys were drafted 4 picks apart in the 2007 draft.
What's interesting is when you compare Timmons to Bowman. He has 20 less solo tackles, but wins just about every other stat battle.
We sell Timmons short. The guy is simply a freakin beast.
