fwiw, i think they could have won 1 or 2 if o'donnell stayed in pittsburgh
i 100% agree. he has never been given the credit he is due

Lloyd a great player still never had the double digit sacks like either of those two guys.

With maybe the drafting of Donta Hightower we could be back to a foursome that could rival the 90's and statistically at least in terms of sacks be much better.

James Harrison
Donta Hightower
Lawrence Timmons
Lamarr Woodley
I think lloyd and greene were just as good of a duo, if not better. the sack numbers are lower for them because teams weren't as pass happy back then, so there were less overall opportunities to get to the QB.

But also less emphasis on the offensive line, especially tackle play and far less 2 and 3 step drops. It almost evens itself out
