    Wake always seems to try and go around the corner in his pass rush attempts. Smith dominated tonight because he has the ability to make a inside move. Wake is always being held going around the edge. Needs to become more versatile. His game will improve leaps and bounds. Note. Drunk.

    Aldon has physical attributes such as size and arm length that Wake doesn't possess to be as dominating as Smith can be. I think Wake has plenty of moves in his arsenal. That being said, everybody should watch film and try to get better. But watching film won't make Wake any taller or his arms grow longer.

    Edit:

    After looking, they are almost identical size.. But it seems like Smith has longer arms that allows him to do more.

    I just see Wake as a guy that is somewhat a 1 trick pony. Smith was obviously a freak tonight. And Wake is not quite on par. But after seeing Wake being wrapped around the neck all year as an outside rusher it becomes clearly understandable that he needs an attack to beat tackles underneath.

    Ireland needs to take notes and get Wake a beast on the opposite side, like a Justin Smith.

    He's going to suck, just like he has all season. Against any type of pass rusher, speed or power, he's been sucking.

    Sad that we had such a high pick and ended up getting a potential HOFer but got derailed by injuries and now just sucking. In hindsight that pick could've went to plenty of other players that would've been on this team next year.

    Watching film is one thing! But, truly being able to do anything about it is another!

    Well we'll find out soon against the 49ers but I have a feeling, Long is going to get called for a few holding penalties.

    If Wake went against Gabe Carini the whole game one on one and Cambell the Qb he would have 8 sacks .. Not to takeaway from Smith he is a beast but come on if u watched that the game it was a joke that dude should not be playing right tackle and Cambell holds the ball forever.. I with Wake they should all be watching film on him.

    Wake and Odrick should be our Smiths. Unfortunately they can't decide whether they're trying to turn Jared into a nose tackle or an edge rusher.

    As someone already mentioned, Carini freaking sucked bad last night. The guy was often blocking air and almost falling on his face. He was also getting bullrushed into the QB, which should be unacceptable for any lineman.

    According to PFF, Wake still leads the league with 55 total QB disruptions. While it would be great to get that number (and his sack number) higher, unfortunately you don't get to play against Bobbie Massie or Gabe Carimi every week. Also, he doesn't get much help (whereas Aldon Smith had Justin Smith converging from the other side). Overall, I don't think watching Aldon Smith could really help him much (playing with him could help a lot though ;) ).

    Aldon Smith can do that because Justin Smith is a beast on the defensive line, as well. Give Wake some help and away we go.

    It did help going against a terrible O-line

    Aldon Smith is a nice player, make no mistake. And he may very well break the sack record for the first 2 years to start a career. However, as some have stated, a lot of his success can be attributed to his surrounding cast. And a good amount of his sacks have come off ONE move ... the inside twist with Justin Smith.

    As for last night's game, he just had a perfect matchup with an inept tackle who was receiving little to no help. Cam Wake enjoyed a similar matchup against Massie and Arizona earlier on the year when he amassed 4.5 sacks.

    The big difference many are overlooking is Cam Wake often is double-teamed or chipped by a RB whereas Aldon Smith receives a lot more single coverage due to the fact the Niners have so many more threats surrounding him. If Wake was lining up at DE for the Niners this year, he'd have a few more sacks than he has right now.....

    The only thing Cam Wake will learn from watching film of Aldon Smith is how much better built that 49ers defense is compared to ours.

    If you placed Wake on that Niner defense, Wake would get the NFL record for most sacks in a season

    The problem is Wake doesn't have near the supporting cast on the miami defense.

    Wake is so important to this D, that if you took him out of the starting lineup, Miami's D would be ranked in the bottom-5 in the league. Seriously, the guy has disrupted the QB 75 times this year either with pressures, sacks, or QB hits, that leads the league, and that's while receiving routine double and triple teams. Take those pressures away with opposing QB's having all day to throw on every down, and we'd see 500 yards passing against miami every game on average, with this poor secondary, if Wake wasn't on the field.

    All that attention Wake gets from offenses would be shuffled to other players on the D, stymying and shutting down other dolphin defenders.. with no one to rush the passer in Wake's place to top it off.

    yeah, this defense would be hopeless without Wake. Absolutely hopeless. You can't say that if you took out a defensive player for the Niners. They'd still be bad a$$

    Wake doesn't have the luxury,of being surrounded by beasts like the 'Niners have!!! One on One....Wake is as good if not better than most in our beloved NFL. It's just that with all of those double teams,he's very limited. I'm proud he's wearing our aqua/orange...easily my favorite player since Zach left!!!
