    Last year, Dallas stole Robert Quinn from the Dolphins for a 6th rd pick that turned out to be a genius move by the FO. Yet, No one would have fathomed that Quinn was going to register 11.5 sacks to DLaw’s 5! I’ve heard a ton of debate as to what to expect from Aldon Smith. Fair or not.. Aldon will inevitably be judged by total sacks bc it’s the first barometer for us fans, although it dosent tell the whole story as in Lawrence’s case. That said..now that Aldon Smith is officially part of the roster, it’s time to take a poll.

    I think he tears it up and gets a big payday somewhere else in 2021.

    I voted 5-8 sacks because I think Gregory comes back and the Cowboys seem to be too dumb to cut Crawford. With that many bodies, I just don't think Aldon will get enough snaps to get more sacks than that. Sure hope I'm wrong though!

    I say 5-8 also, but I could easily see him duplicate what Quinn did last year. Yep, I realize he hasn’t play football in half a decade. But hey, he hasn’t taking the beating either. Everything we’ve read about his road back to the NFL states he’s in the best shape of his life. And if he’s truly turned his life around, he’ll be chomping at the bit to prove the naysayers wrong.. and most of all, prove it to himself.

    Garrett is gone, star players won’t be taken out on key downs. I think Smith will play a lot or I sure hope he does. I am excited to see this freak of nature play.

    I called Quinn with 10+ sacks last year. He led the league in 2018 in beating his man when left one on one and I knew he’d get a lot of single treatment with Tank on the other side of the line.

    But Aldon Smith is in a class by himself, a player who just leaves you wondering what could have been. He’s only 30, I say he’s got a lot left in the tank, and just like Quinn he won’t be double teamed often. I see 10 to 12 sacks in his near future.

    I don't see him returning to pro bowl form any time soon, if ever. But I really hope he does.

    5-8 sacks ..will have a better 2nd half than 1st half.

    the humor is Alden is so sculptured up from Jay Glazer's gym, that he is looking like an action figure toy.. lol

    pretty much what I was thinking, too many players to split snaps. As long as Smith and Gregory and even Crawford, get double digit sacks between them.

    Don't see him making the 53. He'll either get arrested or fail to outplay Jackson and Anae.

    I would guess that his speed to power ratio would still be holding up then...

    If Aldon Smith got a sack every other game, I'd be very pleased.

    Eight sacks for someone returning after 5 years would be great.
