The RB tries to shake Smith to the outside now that Smith has taken an inside move, but, Aldon did a fabulous job of squaring up once he got in the backfield and tackles the RB for a 2 yard loss.
This is really exciting play from a guy who's supposed to be a pass rush specialist. Only when it's slowed down can you truly appreciate the speed and ferocity that Smith uses in this play. The RB literally took three steps from the start of the play and Smith had diagnosed the play, beat a great LT, and was in position to make a tackle. Awesome, awesome play!
he's STILL not even as good as he's going to be
just think about that for a minute
