Larry Allen, who might be the best guard to ever play, was once asked if there was a player he feared and he said Eric Swann and said every game the Cowboys played the Cardinals, he would go out of his way to tell his fellow linemen not to make him mad because once mad nobody could block him

Meh Swann had a ton of injuries from a ton of cheap shots.
How does that contradict what I said? One is a hall of famer, the other, one in a line of many shoulda coulda wouldas.
Down for down he was a monster.
Players that play get remembered. Swann could have been an all timer for sure, but I reserve more of my praise for guys that actually get it done year after year.
