    Gino Marchetti, Earl Faison, Howie Long, Deacon Jones, Reggie White and probably Andy Robustelli. Strahan was great, but these guys are in the mix for the top three. There may be others, but these come to mind right away.

    My vote was and is a yes. Strahan in my opinion was so explosive as a D-Lineman. Every teamm had to game plan for Strahan all the time they went against the Giants. That is why until now the Defense of the Giants have been so dominant is because of Michael Strahan.

    I was streaming thoughts. White would be up there, but I remember Gino and Robustelli from my youth. I'm fairly sure Howie was and end. He was in the Fout's face a lot.

    Howie was a DT and he was no Strahan imo.

    Top 10 but top 3 might be a stretch for Strahan. A lot of great players to sift through.

    I had Faison on my list. I think Ernie was a tackle, next to Dick Hudson. I think Walt Sweeney broke in at the other end about that time. Ernie Wright played on one side, too.
