Am I the only one who has seen Aldon Smith knock lineman straight onto their ass without a single ounce of assistance? He's done it multiple times. Geez.
No, you aren't.
Not only does he beat tackles one on one, I've seen him split double teams multiple times.
He narrowly missed multiple sacks in the last two games. I still
think he was robbed of a sack/fumble on Tom Brady.
There are two things that Justin Smith did that were essential (and f**king bawse).
1) Occupy two blockers in the run game to free up the LBs while still beating said double teams to make tackles and stuffs.
2) Again, occupy two blockers in the pass game while still maintaining pocket pressure in the middle.
It's tough for any edge rusher to get to the QB when he has a ton of space to escape into by stepping up in a clean pocket.
