In 2001, Justin Smith set the Missouri record for sacks in a season, with 11. In 2009, Aldon Smith broke it, with 11 ½. In 2010, Justin Smith led the San Francisco 49ers in sacks, with eight and half. This season, Aldon Smith topped him again, with 14 — missing the N.F.L.’s rookie record by half a sack. The pair share a last name and an alma mater. They dress two stalls from each other in San Francisco’s locker room, and spend time together off the field. On Saturday, they will do their darndest to disrupt the N.F.L.’s top-ranked offense as the 49ers host the New Orleans Saints in an N.F.C. divisional playoff game at Candlestick Park.

From today's New York Times. Fun read.
