SPORTSHYPE: The Linebackers

(Above: Willis, Lawson, and Banta-Cain)
It's late and the rum is flowing, so this is the time to predict good things for the Niners. Starting with a serious linebacking corps, the heart of a serious defense, which as we all know, wins championships. Y'all remember the last great Niners defense -- led by some guy named Lott... When they absolutely had to have a stop, you could count on it. Everybody talked about Golden Joe and Jerry Rice and them pretty boys on offense, but when it came down to it, it was the D that made the Niners the team of the 1980s. We can only hope that these new lads can understand the simple poetry in the words: "It's our ball! Take it back!"
