I don't argue with any of that at all. He is more of an Oiler legend though.
How can anyone vote for Any of these people, who will never sniff a HOF invite, all the while, snubbing the only Hall of Famer on the list?
Air and Eddie aren't fit to carry Matthews' jock as far as all-time greatness goes.
McNair was a good QB for a few years. As was George at RB.
Got nothing on Matthews.
Anybody who votes other than that must be out of their minds. Take off the rose-colored glasses for a few seconds.
Matthews spent an overwhelmingly amount of time as an Oiler, I don't and never have, consider that to be part of Titan history.
Greatest Titan Ever-BM.
Worst Titan OL coach ever-BM.

and also, let it be known that McNair was in injury replacement alternate for his third and final Pro-Bowl. He was pretty bad that year, and it was a gift vote.
Soo.. someone with 2 pro bowl bids vs. a HOF with 14?
This is like 1960s Muhammad Ali vs. modern day Mike Tyson.
You do consider 99-2001 to be Titan history, though, right?
McNair only had one good season after Matthews retired. He is as legit of a Titan as George and McNair.
I hope you know Bruce played every position on the line, not only Guard.
