Silverman knows he's basically throwing names on the table to start the arguments about who he left out (Terry Bradshaw) who he overrated (Deion Sanders) and who shouldn't even be here (Terrell Owens), so have fun rewriting the list to make it your own.

With only 60 slots covering the 60 years since World War II that Silverman calls the "Modern Era" in the NFL, there are of course going to be very good, even great players left just off the list, and Silverman includes a chapter listing those who just missed the cut.  I'd have included Bradshaw and his four Super Bowl wins and left Brett Favre on the just-missed list, and promoted Don Hudson or Steve Largent over T. EgO.

But Silverman also includes stats defending some of his more surprising choices--Eric Dickerson is tied for the most seasons with 2,000 combined yards from scrimmage, Night Train Lane is fourth in all time interceptions, and Steve Young is the NFL career leader in passer ratings.  So make your argument for your favorite players (Darrell Green has to be higher among DBs than Neon, doesn't he?) but make it strong or Silverman will sack you.
