I'm all for enshrining the Broncos O-line, and am thoroughly disgusted at how few linemen actually make up the hall. When you get down to it, they make up a very significant percentage of every team, yet they make up the merest sliver of the QB-RB skewed hall. Do you mean to tell me that one lineman is very much like the next? Tell that to Dan Marino, who got sacked a mere 14 times in his record setting '84 season. Tell that to Emmitt Smith, who played an entire playoff game where not a single defensive lineman got so much as a finger on his jersey the entire game. Hell, tell that to David Carr.
As for Emmitt sustaining his team- as I said, Smith was PURELY a product of the system. He put up Olandis Gary-like numbers behind a Denver Bronco-like O-line. His only claim to greatness is managing to last over a decade in one of the most brutal positions (though his line helped a lot). If he was so great, how come he never rushed for 2000 yards in a season? Terrell managed it, didn't he? I don't care who you play for, be it the Lions or the Broncos, 2000 is quite an accomplishment.
For the record, baseball sucks. Last year, in the Atlanta airport, one of the busiest hubs of traffic and travel in the entire United States, during game 1 of the world series, not a single TV was tuned to the game. Most of the TVs were on the Oakland-Miami game, and the rest were covering more local matchups. Game one of the most important part of the baseball season, and nobody cared. America's PAST time, maybe, but certainly not its PRESENT time.
