Namely Justin Smith and Patrick Willis. If the Broncos had those two holy cow just think how good we would be. The niners have a talented front 7.
I think Sly and Wolfe will have similar roles on passing downs, and if the Broncos can get one of them to play half as good as Smith, then the defense could possibly be great. Im fairly certain Knighton will come off the field on passing downs unless needed. Hes a true nose imo.

Yeah, the niners defense is killer. Losing a player like Goldson sucks, but they did use a first on Ried. But Willis, Smith, Aldon, and even Bowman are great players. Culliver, Rodgers, Brown, Witner, and hell, Asomugha.....thats a lot of talent in the secondary too. Imo the niners will have the best defense in the NFL next season, but Seattle could take the title too.

Von should be even better -- with a solid push up the middle.

1) Watt >>>>>>>
2) Miller >>>
3) A.Smith

4) The rest....
Why does your argument to look at more than mere sack totals bolster these rankings? Because of the REST of the stats that measure pass-rushing skill: Passes batted down (he led the league with a record 16), Defeats (led league with a record 56), QB disruptions (led league w 76), and finally led the league in both sacks (20.5) and TFL (16). SO impressive I had to add one more > to his lead. But I won't be fooled again, he won't McGwire me ... I'm ready any day to see "Watt tests positive for banned substance." Hope not, but I'm ready.
