Of all the dominant Steelers IMO he was the most dominant at his position

First team all pro every year from 1974 - 1979 (playing on the left side behind Mean Joe and LC - good luck going against those three). He was never the same after he had a bad leg injury at the end of the 1979 season but in his prime teams tried to stay away from him.
