Playing defensive end involves a lot more than getting sacks. Setting the edge (Yan's weakness), playing the run, discipline, getting pressure, QB hits, QB hurries and being consistent. Brackens didn't have any weaknesses. 

Not to mention the game is so different now. Guys throw a ton more now so there’s alot more opportunities for sacks and even how ends fly off the ball because you can act like the likelihood of it being a run a smaller now

Yeah.  Getting pressure and generating sacks was always important, but in today's game...it's become pretty much the end-all, be-all of slowing down offenses.  So between the lesser likelihood of the run, and teams starting to make compromises with players and schematically in terms of "packages" and designed pressures...it does make it kinda hard to compare apples to apples vs today.
