Steve Atwater (S)
One of the most feared hitters the sports will ever see. Yet that overshadows how great a safety that Atwater was. His 24 interceptions, 1,180 tackles, and two rings prove that much.
John Lynch (S)
Another all-time great thumper. Lynch played longer than Atwater but was more of a traditional box safety. He was consistently good for 15 yards and has a ring on that great 2002 Bucs defense.
Zach Thomas (MLB)
Have people actually stopped to look at his numbers? Over 1,700 tackles, 20.5 sacks, 17 interceptions, and 16 forced fumbles. If he were three inches taller he’d be in already.
Isaac Bruce (WR)
The Greatest Show on Turf was the best offense in NFL history but only has two Hall of Famers. It’s time to put its best, most consistent receiver in. Bruce has over 15,000 yards and 1,000 catches.
Alan Faneca (OG)
A dominating interior offensive lineman for two Super Bowl-winning teams in Pittsburgh. He paved the way during the peak years of Jerome Bettis and ushered in Ben Roethlisberger.
Jimmy Johnson (HC)
The unforgettable architect of the Dallas Cowboys dynasty of the 1990s. He coached two of their three championship teams, left and then had a decent run in Miami.
