Former NFL defensive end Chuck Smith contends that today's pass-rushers lack the technical pass-rushing skills of their 1990s counterparts. After hearing this, my first thought was to wonder how today's elite sack masters compare with the best of the previous decade.

I happen to have some film from the 1990s, so I decided to see how the best pass-rushers of 2007 compare with the best rushers of the '90s.
