"the more i think about it, the more im voting strahan down every year if i was a voter.  he was never top 5 in his position, never super feared, never game planned around."I have to disagree with you on all accounts.  He was one of the top 5 DEs of the last 20 years.  At one point he was the best in the league.  You don't think a guy with 22 sacks in one season wasnt feared or game planned around? But you could say all those things about Ronde Barber.

Let's see:Reggie WhiteBruce SmithChris DolemanHowie LongJared AllenJulius PeppersDwight FreeneyI'll let people rank them but I don't see how Strahan makes the top 5 and if he does it's dead last at #5. J.J. Watts should be on that list soon enough as well.Ranked #23 here:http://greatest-players.com/NFL-Defensive-Ends.htmRanked #6 here:http://www.ranker.com/list/all-time-greatest-nfl-defensive-ends/cptronRanked #4 here:http://whatfanswanttohear.sportsblog.com/posts/46390/top_10_all_time_nfl.htmlNot in top 5 here:http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news?slug=ac-6906140Not in top 10 here:http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/writer/pete-prisco/22351145/the-10-best-pass-rushers-of-alNot in top 10 here either:http://shareranks.com/432,Greatest-Defensive-Linemen-of-All-TimeI just don't see much to support a hypothesis that Strahan is a top 5 all-time player.

Please wait…
