For those of you who aren't old enough to remember players from the 80's (and before), you're really going to be lost in this vote. Fact of the matter is...the Redskins haven't had many great D-tackles in recent memory. "Big Daddy" Dan Wilkinson and Cornelius Griffin were decent, beyond that, not a lot to speak about. Well, Albert Haynesworth has given us plenty to speak about. Your 5 choices for the Redskins best D-Lineman of all-time are:
Bill Brundige - 8 seasons and 107 games played. Sacks weren't an official stat when he played but he's said to be 6th all-time in sacks by a Redskin.
Joe Rutgens - Played 9 seasons and 110 games in the burgundy and gold, 2-time Pro Bowler.
Darryl Grant - The anti Albert, he switched from O-line to D-tackle and had a great career. Several seasons in the early to mid 80's with 100+ tackles! Played in 141 games...and this.
Diron Talbert - Played 142 games in 10 seasons (missed only 2 games in his career). Made a Pro Bowl and is a member of the 70 Greatest Redskins.
Dave Butz - Played 203 games in the B&G over 14 seasons. 2-time Super Bowl Champ, member of the NFL 80’s All-Decade Team and one of the 70 Greatest Redskins
