This guy makes plays --

Huge difference in our defense with him playing instead of Gay

This. Not dissing Gay. But Hilton was all over the place. Again. He stood out. A playmaker in the slot.

Guy closes ground quickly on the blitz.
More than anything... He seems football smart.
Nose for the ball.
Sniffed out that WR screen on left side....slipped around the block to blow up that play

He really made us forget about golshon didn't he. This is last year for Gay, with Sutton, Allen and Hilton pick ups this year our DB should be strong for years.
Also no one talks about Joe Haden which is good as teams seem to be afraid to throw at him.

And has some physicality to him which helps.

Yeah, I think they should have a spot for slot CB, nickel back, on the Pro Bowl roster and Hilton would be a prime candidate to be voted for that position.

I don't know where this defense would be without his strong play. Not just in coverage, but playing the run, blitzing off the edge, he does it all and he does it seemingly every single game. That tackle for negative yardage on Kelcie's first catch was Hilton at his finest. He also had a tackle for negative yardage on Hunt, then had two blitzes on Smith where he forced him to throw the ball too early.

What got me about the missed sack, wasn't that Mitchell got the stupid penalty, but he completely whiffed on a clean Blitz on Alex Smith.

I don't know about benching him completely, but he needs to play better.

He's sneaky as hell on the blitz.
