Do you think that Aldon Smith can be a 20 sack Guy.?

My beef with the thread is that the question should be more specific. Either go with "Will Aldon Smith, at some point in his career, reach 20 sacks in one season?" or "Will Aldon Smith be a perennial 15+ sack/season player?"

Please stop telling us (others on this forum) what we should or should not do?

For the record, it has only happened 7 times in the history of the NFL (and only one person under 26 has accomplished this feat), so......no

Rank Player (age), + - HOFer, Bold - Active Sk Year Teams
1. Michael Strahan (30) 22.5 2001 NYG
2. Mark Gastineau (28) 22.0 1984 NYJ
3. Chris Doleman (28) 21.0 1989 MIN
Reggie White+ (26) 21.0 1987 PHI
5. Lawrence Taylor+ (27) 20.5 1986 NYG
6. Derrick Thomas+ (23) 20.0 1990 KAN
DeMarcus Ware (26) 20.0 2008 DAL

Shouldn't posters do a bit of research before asking questions like, "Will Frank Gore run for 2500 yards this year? or "Will Justin Smith make 200 tackes this seaon?"

Demarcus Ware has 12 in 7 games this year I think. Damn, if we had drafted him and paired him with Smith...I know I know....still-let me have my wet dream will ya.

I agree, there are so many things wrong with this thread. Most pass rushers will get at least 20 sacks in their careers, so the OP obviously needs to set a time period (like 1 season). He also needs to specify if he's talking about this season, or next season, or any season in the future (if he is, in fact, talking about a season). I'm surprised so many of you voted when you didn't know WTH you were voting on.

All I know is at this point, he is playing so beastly that he is a candidate for defensive rookie of the year.

I understood this question perfectly well to mean 20/season. 20 in a career is nothing. Some common sense should prevail I would think.
No, because Aldon was a huge reach and a C- (I believe) in MadDog's draft summary. The Football Gods will not let it happen.

Your common sense completely missed the point. Like I said, he needs to specify a time period. He could very well be refering anything: 20 sacks every season, 20 sacks this season (which is almost impossible at this point), 20 sacks in one of his seasons in his career. But maybe you have a skill we don't have: reading minds.
the OP says, "Next year I believe he will get 20."


Maybe he edited it, but either way its silly to keep arguing about what the OP means when its very clear by now what he means.
Aldon Smith will never reach 20 if they keep playing Parys Haralson on most of the snaps.

So the limited number of times its happened in the past affects Aldon how? Not that i think it'll happen this year, but giving "history" lessons that don't apply to anyone currently on this team, is a sad excuse as to why he wont. As of right now, we simply don't blitz enough to have a 20 sack guy.

How is anyone arguing with Maddog here. There's no reason to even talk about 20 sack seasons. Let's just see if can consistently produce double digits and I'll be stoked.
I want Aldon and Ahmad to get 12+ each. Every year!

Good game from Aldon, he got some good pressure but props to Beck for getting the ball out quickly. I think it's safe to say 20 will be out of reach this year Hell

But next year? 30? Hell Yeah!!
Even though Aldon didn't have a sack this game, he was a force. He consistently put pressure on Beck. You can tell teams are starting to double him or at least chip blocking him. This kid is special.
Fools don't play him enough
I didn't even see him make a play today (must've blinked... )...
yep
