JJ Watt has been insane whenever I've seen him, and I don't know all that much about football but from what I understand what he's doing at his position is pretty crazy.
I don't really have a ranking but I'd take Watt, Miller's season over Smith's. Probably somebody on the Bears defense too like Tillman or Jennings maybe. Daryl Washington on the Cardinals is having a pretty crazy year too. So I suppose like top 5?
.. Plus that 49ers defense seems crazy. Like I said I haven't seen alot of them but what I be wrong in saying you could argue Smith, Willis, Bowman are all better defenders on his own team?
Von Miller also has a shit ton more QB hurries than Aldon Smith.
Aldon has a decent shot if he breaks the sack record, but barring that, he's not winning it. Even if he does, he may have trouble with the type of seasons guys like Watt and Von Miller are having. Watt is going to have to start putting up some more numbers too, as Von Miller has been absolutely tearing it up over the past few weeks.
