He and Kevin Mawae had almost identical careers. 2 of the best to ever play their positions in both college and the NFL. Took both close to the same amount of years to get in the hall. Had they been QBs or RBs with the same credentials, they would’ve been no doubt 1st ballot HOFers. But hey.... They’re in!

If honors were given regardless of position, he would have been a first ballot guy. Hell, if honors were given regardless of position, he would have been Super Bowl MVP. Never seen a lineman dominate a big game the way he did in that Super Bowl.
