That kid took a brutal pounding today.
Geno
Savage
Others?
My favorite is in 2001 against auburn in the dome. It’s just after 9/11. Flags on all the seats. Auburn knows about Freeney and they have planned for it. Their QB buys steaks for the OL if he doesn’t get sacked. First snap of the game, Freeney blows around the OT and puts the Auburn QB on his cornhole. Flag on the play. But still...

If you're talking mano a mano poundings - you have Freeney's 4.5 sacks on Michael Vick.

I was at that game. They double teamed Freeney and constantly rolled away from him, yet Freeney chased that kid down all day. I think he was a freshman. He ended up being really good and played in the NFL for a while.

For me, nothing will ever be better than than Freeney rocking Vick in 2000. I know we lost that game and Vick wasn't hurt, but that was a sick display by Freeney.

We weren’t even that good that year. When the Jets took Geno Smith in the first round, I was like that guy’s gonna be a bust because he looked completely deer in the headlights against our mediocre defense.
There was a TV shot of him on the sideline and I've never seen a QB so physically and mentally beaten.

Jason Campbell - ended up being one of Auburn's four first-round picks in the '04 draft, had a serviceable nfl career (4 years with Washington, then 5 years bouncing around with 4 other teams)

That game was great. I might be wrong but it seems like freeney and antoine ponds combined for 6-7 sacks that game. I remember a post standard article about he thought they knocked Vick out more than once...eyes would roll back in his head and then he would jump like nothing happened.

Yeah, I believe that was Jason Campbell who ended up starting for the Redskins for awhile.

It was Duke Pettijohn who was coming off the other end and also getting a ton of pressure, along with Freeney.
