    Yep one of the best run stoppers ever. To have him and Hampton plugging holes for so many years was a beautiful watch.

    Smith>Heyward

    Agreed. Not even a doubt about it actually.

    sure, but there's absolutely no argument to be had (at least to me) that smith was far better at what he did, than what cam currently does. in other words, if i rub a lamp and a genie pops out and tells me that i can choose 11 steelers defenders whom have played since 2000 to build an ideal defense with, i'm sure as fuck taking aaron smith before i take cam heyward

    I would probably pick them both at the same time and be happy. For me it's a 1A and 1B type situation. Remember though in a passing league you want the best pass rushers. This last year Heyward probably had his best run defense year too. With Cam's career still ongoing for me just a very hard decide. Love them both.
