Default Aaron Smith.......Best player you never heard of

Read the rest........

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/s...t&lid=tab6pos2

Merril Hoge: Aaron Smith, DE, Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Aaron Smith is the best player in the NFL that most people haven't heard of. The reason for that is because he plays in the trenches on the line and doesn't put up the huge sack numbers that other ends may put up. But the Steelers defense wouldn't be nearly as effective without him on the team. He creates havoc for opposing offensive lines because he has the ability to power through blocks to get pressure on the quarterback and also disrupt the running game. He also does a decent job of occasionally dropping back into coverage and disrupting tight ends that come across the middle, which allows Troy Polamalu the opportunity to roam freely.

thanks for the link. on sirius radio a few weeks back, pat kirwan and tim ryan were talking about the impact joe thomas was gonna have as a rookie starter for cleveland.

the 1st thing out of ryans mouth was that he is gonna get "body rocked" by aaron smith.

while he doesnt have the flash and pizzaz, those on the inside know who aaron smith is. im actually suprised more steelerfans havent been in an uproar about giving somebody over 30 such a huge contract extension.

I kinda agree, I like Aaron even though he doesn't put up big numbers, and I don't expect that to change much this season, although it'l be great. His size alone makes a huge impact on the line

he's the kind of guy that doesn't play for the recognition and he plays consistently and doesn't expect any glory. thanks for sharing the article

I think that there hasn't been much of an 'uproar' about his contract Tone,...because Aaron is one of those rare players that actually 'deserves' every penny of it.

What i mean is,....he's been able to maintain a high level of productivity year in and year out. And remained pretty much injury free for the most part. And he's done so in spite of the fact that he was underpaid and in the eyes of some possibly underappreciated by his peers and some fans.

And yet you never heard him b#tching and moaning,.....he just continued to do his job. And do it well.

Bottom line,.....IMO he's the consumate professional !

Got to agree. Aaron will show everyone this year what he can do. I won't be surprised if he's up for some defensive awards.
