Anti-Postmodernist / Critical Theory Denier

In my opinion, you have Smith and White, then everyone else. With all due respect to Deacon Jones, I don’t think it’s close. And Howie Long isn’t in that sentence.
I’m also forgetting guys like Willie Davis, Gino Marchetti, and Doug Atkins from the 60s. I prefer to compare how players dominated in their own era. Sacks weren’t an official statistic until the late 70s or early 80s. Team threw less in past eras. Of course, blocking rules were different too.
Davis unofficially had over 100, maybe over 120 sacks in 10 seasons, fewer games per season.
