but only Deacon is without question, at worst the top 2 at his position with that number.
Guys like Greene, Ogden, you can make arguments for 2 ppl ahead of them at their position all time. But Deacon is without question, at the very worst the 2nd best DE of all time.
And he is also one of the most influential players of all time, and probably the 2nd greatest defender of all time after Lawrence Taylor. The rest get honorable mention, but its gotta go to Deacon.
