49ers Patrick Willis doesn't much care for Matt Millen's criticism

Following the San Francisco 49ers' 26-3 loss to the New York Giants on Sunday, ESPN commentator Matt Millen went on 95.7 The Game and was apparently quite critical of linebackers Patrick Willis and NaVorro Bowman, calling the loss the duo's worst game they had played with each other.

Willis appeared later on the show and was asked to respond to Millen's comments. In short, he said it was a bad day, but Willis then gave the following gem, per a transcription via Sports Radio Interviews:

"And whoever this Matt Millen guy is, I'd like to ask him if he could do what we do every day and do what we do for 16 games a year and see if he can hold up every game. I doubt he would. I doubt he would be able to consistently play at a high level as Bowman and I do. I really don't care about what this guy has to say."

Millen was a linebacker for more than a decade in the NFL and played for San Francisco from 1989-1990. He was a four-time Super Bowl Champion and two-time All-Pro before he went on to work in the Detroit Lions' front office.

Since leaving the NFL, he has worked across several networks as a commentator.
