Solid list, but I couldn't leave Jerry Rice off of any GOAT list.

No Cowboys players on this list. How about Bob Lilly.

QUOTE(#3):

Whew. Pretty hard to leave Jack Ham off there, too. And Mel Blount, but I admit I'm myopic. No huge arguments with this list, though. Bruce Smith?

Blount could be argued over Willie Brown, but as great as Ham was, LT was in a league of his own.

Sorry, this should be done by decades. The rules change, the size of the players change, coaching, training, too many variables to compare a guy from the '50s to one of today's players.
