who, from the early eras, would you argue should be in but isn't?
Chris Hanburger should make it as one of the Senior nominees for 2011. He's a 9-time Pro Bowler and 4-time 1st team All-Pro (1 2nd team All-Pro)
Maxie Baughan - 9 Pro Bowls, 2 1st team All-Pros (4 2nd team All-Pro)
Chuck Howley - 6 Pro Bowls 5 1st team All-Pros, Super Bowl MVP
Isiah Robertson - 6 Pro Bowls, 2 1st team All-Pros (3 2nd team All-Pro)
Randy Gradishar - 7 Pro Bowls, 2 1st team All-Pros, (3 2nd team All-Pro), Defensive Player of the Year
That wasn't certain given recent voting trends. I hope you reconsider or make a case for Thomas #2.
EDIT- Oh, and Hendricks (6)
I guess I should explain that a little better.
In my mind it was between DT and Hendricks. I was having trouble deciding, but I was leaning towards DT and since he had 9 votes anyway I just gave it to him.
Thomas might not have been very good against the run, but he's possibly the best pass rushing OLB in the history of the game. He has the record for sacks in a game and career forced fumbles, and he's 12th all time in career sacks despite having a shorter career than everyone else at the top of that list. He went to 9 straight pro bowls beginning with his rookie year. I think anytime you can claim to be the best at an important of football in the history of the NFL, you deserve to be mentioned with the top guys at your position.
BTW, since we're on to #4, I can vote again right?
