109th??! The dude was a five-time first team all-pro and the key player in the first ever defense to finish as the top ranked rushing defense three seasons in a row. Plus he has the name recognition from the Williams Wall and the Shock and AWWE line (and he was at least as good as Jared Allen, who you rightly have ranked in the top 20). If this guy had played for a team like the Steelers or Cowboys we'd be talking about a likely first-ballot Hall of Famer. Even putting that aside, no way this guy doesn't deserve to get in very soon in his eligibility. Why he's not ranked at least in the top 30 astounds me - how the hell is he behind guys like Olin Kreutz (one first-team all-pro nod), London Fletcher (zero first-team all-pro selections), Jay Novacek (one first-team all-pro nod) and Lance Briggs (one first-team all-pro selection) among many others??
