This is a fantastic little bit of game tape analysis by K.C. Joyner, breaking down the strengths and weaknesses of the game's top pass rushers, then comparing them to the top guys of the 1990s. Lost in the bull rushes and rip moves, however, is my favorite pass rush technique, which I saw only used by Bruce Smith, and only one time: He simply leapfrogged the blocker to get into the backfield.

Are the best defenses against play action the best against regular passes too? How much impact does play action really have in an NFL game, and does it correlate from year to year?
