    Aldon Smith is a one trick pony. Miller is a far superior all-around LB

      He is definitely not as good rushing the passer, Von Miller is the most effective pass rusher in the NFL according to QB pressures/pass rushes.

Stupid excuse trying to defend your fav teams LB. I don't expect anything less from a teams fan defending there players.

        The truth is out there. Aldon is the better pass rusher.


        So .5 sack more on a night where he got 5,5 against the worst OL in the league makes him the better pass rusher ?

        They are pretty equal at rushing the passer, Von having the edge.

        As a complete player Aldon is not on Von's level....

          The truth is out b/c he did it against the worst OL in football?

          And even still with that, he has 1 more sack, yet Miller has more FF's and leads the league in TFL. Aldon is good but Miller makes game-changing plays every week. Aldon is basically a pass-rusher, while playing on a better Front 7 as well.

            I think Smith will decline in production once that 49ers defense isn't so talented in a couple of years. Teams change season to season and I don't think they will be able to continue to field a team that is as strong as the past two seasons have been.

              Smith needs to get some credit around here. People talk about him like if he's Aaron Maybin or something. I understand we need to defend our players but Smith is a beast of his own. I've seen a lot of their games and Smith is far from a one trick pony. He's good against the run. Does he get a lot of tackles for loss like Von? No. But he's good enough against it where he shouldn't be labeled a one trick pony. He contains his side and that's all he needs to do.

              And remember we play the Chiefs this week. I know Von will gain the lead back.

                I think Aldon is benefitting from playing in the NFC where the lines are terrible. I swear the 5 most sacked teams have to come from the NFC, and the 49ers are playing most of them.

                Cards X 2
                Bears X 1
                Packers X 1
                Rams X 2

                6 of the top 7 teams in sacks allowed reside in the NFC And the niners have played alot of them lol. Like wise Denver is playing a lot of the teams at the top. So saying Aldon is the better pass rusher is like saying the NFC north can field a decent Oline...
