Good picks.

Trivia.......you gotta look up Hardy Brown and view some videos on him on the internet.  (He tackled with shoulder hits and was legendary at it.)

He is an oldtimer who averaged about one knockout a game......and the most unbelievable thing is he was small for the NFL.....even back then.

The old guys would always place bets.......according to them........as to how many or who would be knocked out by one of his tackles.

Here's one link:

the film they had of Night Train Lane was awesome...

Hines Ward will find his way to the top 100, someday.  He's the most physical receiver ever to play the game.

Now him I remember!!

His clothes line tackles were legendary.

IIRC, he was the reason those types of tackles were outlawed.

it does seem like he should have made the top 100.  I'm surprised Chris Carter didn't make the top 100 either.

Largent is listed at 108 in a related "survey".

Bobby Lane is rated at 110 in that related survey also.  I would have put him in the top 100 because he won the most championships in the 1950's as a quarterback IIRC.
