    Gene Upshaw should win, for his stellar representation of his union members. "Disability plan? We don#t need no stinking disability plan!"

    I don't defend his actions regarding retired players but all joking aside, if he does move on or win in this tourny, it should be because he is one of the greatest OL in the history of the game.

    Whatever, I figured I had to put him on. Its a homer nomination.


    edit: And I'll be damned if Peyton is on the list and he isn't.
