Thomas holds the sack record at 8. He got this on Dave Krieg and the funny thing is that Seattle still beat the Chiefs in the game.

He's basically on pace for 21 sacks, and it seems like he's getting better week by week. One more monster game could put him on pace to break it.

Actually it was 7.

I was at that game. 50 yard line seats. DT had a few missed sacks in that game (including the last play when they won). I've never seen any pass rusher take over a game like DT did. Seattle was triple teaming him and he still got through. DT was extremely close to having 10 sacks that game.

What's even more incredible about it is that he did it in a more conservative league. The NFL has gone extremely pass heavy now giving pass rushers more opportunities to sack the QB.

This could be argued both ways. QBs hold on to the ball longer, but also have more protection than ever before both in rules and game schemes. I think thats why you see so many sack records in the mid to late 80s and early 90s. Reggie White, LT, DT...

Aldon Smith might pass Von tonight. 3 sacks in the first half against that god awful putrid Chicago offensive line.

I thought DT record was 7 in a game.

But on the topic of Von getting the record for the season total, as much as I want him to do it I am more interested in playoffs and what he does this week

I think the NFL benefits pass rushers far more than they did in the 90's. There are legitimately 6 pass rushers who have the capability of passing Strahan's record: Von Miller, JJ Watt, Aldon Smith, Jared Allen, Clay Matthews and DeMarcus Ware.

I fully believe that if the 1990 2nd year DT who got 20 sacks played in this era, he could be capable of 25.

Way to eff things up OP... I guess Aldon Smith reads the Mane and has something to say about the record you so boldly posted about...as Von Miller looks up at Smith as we speak with 13.5 sacks and over a quarter of bears beat down to go.

I think the Cardinals have allowed multiple 8-sack games this year. They're pathetic.

Kaylore
11-19-2012, 08:57 PM
Just looking at the stats, all of the remaining QB's we face are toward the bottom of the league in Sacks allowed. The Buccs are tied with us for second fewest sacks allowed. Just two steps worse than us is the Browns with their vaunted offensive line. Oakland is tied at 21st fewest. Only the Chiefs, tied at 15th, look like they will give Miller some opportunities.

Honestly it's probably not happening.

By comparison, the Niners get to play several teams that are in the top five in sacks allowed.

If Miller is able to get it, it will be an epic feat.

So is the Mane the cosmic center of the universe or something? Are you the same poster who blamed the safety in the last game on another poster who made fun of San Diego's punter?

If Von was playing Chicagos Oline with Campbell tonight he would easily have added 6 or more sacks tonight. That Oline is truly pathetic... Cutler better be glad he had a headache tonight and couldnt come out to play.

canadianbroncosfan
11-19-2012, 11:32 PM
Wow and just like that, 5.5 sacks and Smith has 15.

Probably bias, but I'm still more impressed with Miller. He hasn't had the pleasure of playing the O-Lines of the Rams, Vikings Cardinals and the Bears with Campbell at QB all which are in the top 10 in sacks allowed (or bottom 10 depending on how you look at it).

extralife
11-19-2012, 11:34 PM
I definitely thought there was a chance Smith would catch Von. That crappy Oline with a backup, they stood no chance. Every time he doesn't play, Cutler ends up looking like a miracle worker.

Harvitz81
11-19-2012, 11:49 PM
Aldon Smith is a stud no doubt. Even if he ends up with more sacks than Von, I still think Von will get more looks for DPOY.

I look at it as, Smith is just another cog in an excellent 49ers defense that Justin Smith, Bowman, and Willis allow Aldon to just rush the passer. i.e. Aldon is not solely responsible for how good they are.

Von, on the other hand, can be looked at as the player single handedly elevating our defense to top 5 contention. While we have other impact players, I would argue that Von receives most of the scheming and game planning against as we don't have the likes of a Bowman, Willis, or Justin Smith on our team (let alone all 3).

In the end, I could care less. I just hope Von remains injury free and I look forward to building around him for the next decade and watching him beast around every Sunday.

Smith is a pass rush monster, but still more of a situational guy. Von is far and away more complete.

also how dumb is Chicago....they never once tried to double Aldon Smith or even chip him with a back. If Von was allowed to go 1 on 1 with a tackle all game he'd already have the record.
