I know all the worshippers are enamored with Aldon Smith after last night, but one thing I've learned over the years, Steve, football is like love. You can't judge the morning after.
That's not love, homey. Ha Ha. Smith has been doing it for awhile. He's not just a situational pass rusher anymore. His well-rounded game is allowing the 49ers to run even more aggressive schemes.
Ok, I will concede that Smith is the best young talent on the best defense in football. But he's got a lot of help -- from the secondary to the middle. J.J. Watt doesn't have quite as much around him.
You want to go stats, fine? Ok, Smith has 3.5 more sacks. J.J. has more tackles and 11 passes defensed. You know how many Aldon has?
Once again, two different positions; two different demands.
None, the kid's still on his donut. Goodnight.
Again, their being asked to do different things. I love Watt, but Smith is turning into a major difference maker too.
