Patrick Willis has established himself as one of the best defensive players in the NFL. And while the 49ers linebacker is physically gifted, it's what's inside of Willis that has brought him to new heights.
Willis has been selected to the Pro Bowl in each of his first five NFL seasons after enjoying a standout college career at Ole Miss. Things haven't always been easy for the Tennessee native, though, and he's had to push himself every step of the way.
Willis is living proof that great things come to those who don't waver in their beliefs. It's all about finding the power inside, which is quite obvious in the Duracell video about Willis above.

According to ProFootballWeekly.com, as good as 49ers safety Dashon Goldson has been this season, it’s not a lock that he’ll be back in San Francisco next season.

The San Francisco 49ers are bucking a trend. Most teams that go from having losing records one year to posting 10 or more wins the next year typically fall back to 9-7 or worse in the third year of the cycle. According to the Pro Football Post's Joe Fortenbaugh, 29 teams have gone from a sub-.500 record to an above-.500 record over the past 10 years. In 26 of those cases...

Somehow Vernon Davis is still a top 5 TE in fantasy. After starting the season on fire with 4 TDs in the first 3 games, he has only 6 fantasy points in the last 3 games combined. I still think the 49ers will get this figured out and Davis is a nice buy low candidate.

Goldson was not penalized during the game, and the NFL announced he would not be fined, either. That outcome did not come as a surprise to 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh or Goldson.
"Vince Lombardi would be proud," Harbaugh said Monday night after...
