San Francisco 49ers linebacker Patrick Willis joined this week’s Cover Two Podcast and said the team’s 4-1 start stems from a lack of individualism and an understanding that they’re far from a finished product.

Rookie Richter: Which WRs are catching on?

After A.J. Green and Julio Jones were picked in the top six of the 2011 NFL Draft, everyone expected to hear their names early in the season. At the same time, several other rookie wide receivers, from second-round picks to an undrafted free agent, have made an impact through two weeks of football.
