I would put McMahon at 2 and Oats at 4. I don't think Richards is high enough either. Funny that Kyle didn't get mentioned.

It was looking over this list. But you missed some greats Brett Keisel, Kurt Gavia (?)Lee Thunder Foot Johnson all should have been at least a HM.

Draper, UT

First, of all this article is about best offensive nfl careers, Kyle played defense. Second of all he was in NFL for only 3 games...not much of a career...

Who am I sir?
