    What defines rookie? First year in professional football or first year in the NFL. I don't recall Herschel Walker ever being referred to as a rookie his first year in Dallas because he had already played in the USFL. Reggie White took that same path. I definitely can see White classified as a rookie. I just never saw other USFL players with experience called rookies once they joined the NFL.

    Reggie White is the only one on that list that had a solid lengthy career. Freeney had some better seasons after his rookie year, but not as long as Reggie White.

    The Freak like you said never captured his rookie magic, but didn't nose dive like Aldon. Just puts it into perspective for me, Enjoy #11 today. Never know what the future brings.

    Where did I say he didn't have a great career? I just said not as long as Reggie White's dominance.

    Let this kid rush the QB a lot the next two weeks, break that record, and lock up defensive player of the year.

    Damn. I’d like for Parsons to break the record in 16 games. He needs 2 vs Arizona

    You said - Reggie White is the only one on that list that had a solid lengthy career.

    Freeney played 16 years, was a 3 time All Pro, a 7 time Pro Bowler, was on the All Decade team and is worthy of the Hall of Fame.

    But other than that....

    And Micah did it as a part time rusher...heck, he didn't even rush the passer in 25% of the games he played. If given the opportunity to be a full time pass rusher he could possibly have the single season sack record.

    It should be first year in professional football. Reggie wasn't a rookie when he recorded 13 sacks.

    Move Micah up the list. :clap:

    Aldon Smith to me was a HOF talent that ruined himself with alcohol addiction, among others things but that was the primary reason for his downfall.

    Over the 43 games he played his first 3 years he had 42 sacks. 74 QB hits. 6 FF.
    He was a gamechanger.
    Then suspension after suspension hit.

    Crazy thing is that he is only 32 right now. No doubt in my mind he could of been around ~120+ sacks right now if he played the maximum amount of 176 regular season games since his career started.
