Chris Borland’s contributions as big as he is small for an inside linebacker

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Let’s get the pleasantries out of the way first.

Chris Borland is most certainly not Patrick Willis. Then again, no one is, so no need to make comparisons when none are needed. Because even if the diminutive rookie who was taken in the third round out of Wisconsin by the San Francisco 49ers has replaced Willis in the lineup with the seven-time Pro Bowler out for the season, Borland is not the same player.

Borland, though, does not need to be Willis, who was felled by a chronically sore left big toe.
