that play turned into that interception though so it's all good. he should get credited for that somehow :D
EDIT: I'm too lazy to look them up but he also had a few pressures yesterday as well.
He should win DROY simply because he plays half as much as Miller and pretty much has the same amount of production. Unless you go the "heisman moments" argument Miller shouldn't win(i.e. the sack on sachez to give them a shot for that final drive). Aldon shouldn't have a problem passing him for the lead in sacks with our final 3 games against some horrible O-lines, Steelers have allowed 35 sacks, the rams and seahawks have allowed 39 and 41 respectively. Miller has to play Buffalo who's o-line has allowed the fewest sacks(17), the Pats who have allowed the 4th fewest sacks(22) but he gets a reprieve and plays KC to finish the season and they've allowed the 9th most on the year(33).
I'd give the edge to Aldon over the next 3 games, I'm setting the over/under for Aldon at 14 for the year, anyone else think he could get 3.5 over the final 3 weeks?

Thank you for the compliment. Aldon has every possibility of being a tremendous player in the league for a long time. He has outdone my belief in his ability to bend around the corner, and bull-rush through OT's. The main question will be whether he can learn to play outside backer. The Niners will have a more complete defense (that sounds scary) when he is able to disguise when he is going forward and when he is playing in reverse.
I will stand with my belief that other players were better options on the board, and we will see down the road if my observations were accurate in this part of the draft, or off-base. Those demanding that I "eat crow" or "apologize" will have to wait until hell freezes over.
