Can't really compare the Noll days...No free agency until almost the end of his reign.

I can think of one linebacker that is significantly overpaid......and it isn't Timmons. It's the one that got the $60 million dollar contract that averages about 3.5 tackles and .75 sacks a game that shall remain nameless....
