Good morning everyone. I would like to take a moment to welcome the new robot overlord in the 49ers defense. He may be a third round pick, but he is quickly rising to first in the hearts of 49er fans everywhere. He is replacing maybe the first and second best inside linebackers in the entire NFL. He was too short, to slow, had T-Rex arms, but the guy was and is as excellent football player. I am speaking of course, of Chris Borland, the machine that came out of nowhere to possibly lead this rag tag band of Superbowl contenders to the playoffs.
Seriously guys, in case you hadn't heard or watched the last four games closely, Chris Borland is an absolute stud. Pro Football Focus - whose opinion on front seven players and offensive lineman might be the most well respected out there - wrote a piece comparing Chris Borland to Luke Kuechly. Only they think Borland might be the better player. Who knows how this season will end up, but one thing is abundantly clear, the 49ers know how to scout linebackers. To the links!
