What points do you get for being one of the best players to come out of Vermont?  Okay, not that much, but regardless of what state Steve Wisniewski came from, there was no doubt that he was one of the finest Offensive Linemen of the 1990’s.


Steve Wisniewski was the defacto leader of the Silver and Black’s O-Line for over a decade.  Many considered him a dirty player and too many he was the embodiment of the Silver and Black.  Regardless of whatever tactics the “Wiz” would use, there was no doubt that he was a talented Left Guard and in addition to eight Pro Bowls, he was named to the prestigious NFL 1990’s All Decade team.

Wisniewski has not been eligible for a very long time, so there is a good chance that he could work his way into serious Hall contention.

Completely agree Wiz deserves to be in! One of the most dominant linemen of the 90's.
