Vote: Are NFL pass-rushers losing their touch?

Will we see more Michael Strahans?
Many writers suggested the New York Giants stopped the New England Patriots' run to perfection largely thanks to a stellar pass rush. But were the Super Bowl champs an exception to the rule that rushing the passer has become a lost art in the NFL?

ESPN.com NFL writer Jeffri Chadiha heard the hypothesis that pass-rushers these days are short on craftsmanship from former gridiron standout Chuck Smith, and he found more than a few coaches and front-office folks who agreed with the assessment.

What's your take, SportsNation? Is pass rushing simply a speed game these days? Who is the best pass-rusher of all time? And just how valuable is an elite pass-rusher?
