It's sad that LT and Deion are getting all the votes. If you add Deions INTs to LTs sacks, you still have a number that is 20 short of the number of TDs Rice scored. It must be uncool to like Rice or something. Perhaps he should stop being such a nice guy to increase his street cred.
For those that say Jerry Rice, I'll say this: He clearly was a dominant force and the greatest WR of all time. But at the same time, we've seen players reach his level of excellence. Moss in his prime was arguably better than Rice, Rice just did it longer and had better work ethic. Megatron is a guy who is a monster mismatch in today's game.
Michael Irvin was a force on the outside etc. We've seen guys who came close. They weren't Rice, but they weren't all that far off either.
Nobody came even close to LT. You can make a case for Deion for a similar reason, but LT was just on a different planet.
Im lucky to be old enough to remember watching LT play. I still havent seen anyone play the position like he did. And he gets my vote.
I voted for LT and it was an easy vote here.
But did you watch Derrick Thomas from about 1989-1994 or so?
He played the position like LT did.
DT was unfuqingbelievable getting after the QBs.
It's just that he was in Kansas City and not a great team.
