  2. Last pick... Round 60- Kevin Greene Greatest LB in NFL Often underrated, Greene's 160 sacks are the 3rd most in NFL history , he averaged 11.2 sacks per 16 games was a three-time First-team All-Pro, a five-time Pro Bowler, was the 1996 NEA NFL Defensive Player of the Year, a two-time Conference Player of the Year (1994 and 1996) was the NFLPA Linebacker of the year three times. He also finished as the NFL's all-time leader in sacks by a linebacker, ahead of players like Lawrence Taylor, Derrick Thomas, Rickey Jackson, and Andre Tippett; Greene is also one of only four players to lead the NFL in sacks in multiple seasons ('94 with the Steelers and '96 with the Panthers). He is also tied for second in career safeties with three and third all-time in fumble recoveries with 26 (which he returned for 136 yards and 2 touchdowns); he began his career as a rusher on third downs but earned a starting spot in 1988. He thrived in the Rams 3-4 that had plenty of Fritz Shurmur's Eagle/Hawk scheme mixed in. Under those conditions, Greene totaled 46 sacks from 1988-90, more than anyone in the NFL. In 1991 the scheme changed to a 4-3 and while he still led the Rams in sacks in 1991 and 1992, he felt like a fish out of water.' In 1993 he signed with the Steelers and became part of the Dom Capers "Blitzburgh" defense. He followed Capers to the expansion Panthers and in 1996 he led the NFL in sacks for the second time (1994 was the first time) and this is when he won the NEA Defensive Player of the Year award, the UPI NFC Defensive Player of the Year, the NFLPA and NFL Alumni Linebacker of the Year awards and was consensus All-Pro and a Pro Bowler, all the while helping get the Panthers a game away from the Super Bowl. Greene was a speed and speed-to-power rusher, who showed relentless effort. He didn't have the long arms of some of the others, but he could use his strength to break free from blocks and get to the quarterback. He spent his career on the left side and had to deal with tight ends chipping him more than most on the list. Greene was voted to the National Football League 1990s All-Decade Team, and was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2016. Thanks for putting this together @timschochet and @Getzlaf15 for spreadsheet. Thanks to all who are judging as well. I'd like to help but im heading to mountains for a couple weeks with family and will have spotty cell reception and no internet. Ill check back in when i can
  3. RD 59 Sidney Crosby Greatest Offensive Player NHL Nicknamed "Sid the Kid" and dubbed "The Next One", Crosby was selected first overall by the Penguins in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft, and is widely regarded as one of the greatest hockey players of all time. He is best player in the world at a time in history when players have never been better. 6th player in NHL history to win multiple Conn Smythe Trophies Crosby debuted in the NHL during the 2005–06 season, recording 102 points and finishing as runner-up for the Calder Memorial Trophy as the NHL Rookie of the Year. By his second season, he led the NHL with 120 points to capture the Art Ross Trophy, becoming the youngest player and the only teenager to win a scoring title in any major North American sports league. That same season, Crosby won the Hart Memorial Trophy as the league's most valuable player (MVP) and the Lester B. Pearson Award for most outstanding player as judged by his peers. He started the 2007–08 season with the team's captaincy and subsequently led them to the 2008 Stanley Cup Finals, where they were defeated by the Detroit Red Wings in six games. The Penguins returned to the Finals against Detroit the following year and won in seven games; Crosby became the youngest captain in NHL history to win the Stanley Cup. In 2009–10, he received the Mark Messier Leadership Award and scored 51 goals, winning the Maurice Richard Trophy as the NHL's leading goal scorer. In early 2011, Crosby sustained a concussion that left him sidelined for the rest of the season and for most of the 2011–12 campaign. In 2014, Crosby again won the Hart Memorial Trophy as well as his second Art Ross Trophy (104 points) and his third Ted Lindsay Award. Crosby led Pittsburgh to Stanley Cup championships in 2016 and 2017, becoming the third player to win the Conn Smythe Trophy (playoff MVP) in consecutive years. In 2017, he also captured his second Richard Trophy and was named one of the 100 Greatest NHL Players in history. Wayne Gretzky said of Crosby, "He's proven over and over that he's the best player in the game today. And it seems like the more important the game, the more impact that he makes on a game." Gordie Howe was also impressed by Crosby, "I met him and I've seen him play. Unless you put two guys on him, he'll kill you in a game." In an article for The Washington Post, other players, teammates and coaches highlighted his work ethic and strive for greatness as a major factor to Crosby's lasting success. "While his natural ability – powerful skating, pistol-quick hands, uncommon feel – made him a phenom, his creative, distinct capacity for work has enabled him to stay atop the NHL." Current Pittsburgh head coach Mike Sullivan described Crosby as "best 200-foot player in the game" and the "heartbeat" of the Penguins.

  4. Round 58= Will Shields- Greatest Offensive Lineman in NFL history 2015 Pro Football Hall of Fame Inductee... Selected by Chiefs in 3rd round (74th overall pick) of 1993 draft... All-American, Outland Trophy winner (best interior lineman) at Nebraska, 1992... Inserted into lineup in 1st NFL game, never missed a game in career. Played in 224 games with 223 starts, both figures being franchise records among Chiefs position players... As rookie in 1993, helped Chiefs to 1st division title since 1971... Elected to 12 consecutive Pro Bowls from 1995-2006 seasons (T-2nd in NFL history among OL) Shields blocked for Marcus Allen, Priest Holmes, and Larry Johnson during his career. He had blocked for 1,000-yard rushers for five seasons. He blocked for 4,000-yard passers for five seasons while Elvis Grbac did it in 2000 and Trent Green in 2003, 2004, and 2005. In fourteen seasons, Shields never missed a game, and he failed to start only one contest, his first regular-season outing, as a rookie in 1993. He was named to the NFL’s all-decade team for the 2,000’s. Shields was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2011 and the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2015.

  6. Round 57 Warren Moon- Greatest NFL QB Prior to the 1978 NFL Draft, some NFL scouts suggested that since University of Washington quarterback Warren Moon had played in a rollout rather than a drop-back passing offense, he would be a mid-round pick. Others speculated that since only one African American quarterback, James Harris, had achieved any measurable success in the NFL, Moon would have to play some other position. Supposed super-smart, forward-thinking college coaches and NFL scouts thought he should play wide receiver instead of quarterback -- yes, at every level of his career he encountered racial stereotypes before proving them all very wrong. Regardless of which misguided reason motivated NFL scouts, the Rose Bowl MVP remained confident of his abilities and opted to sign with the Edmonton Eskimos of the Canadian Football League. He went on to lead the Eskimos to an unprecedented five consecutive Grey Cup victories. Eventually, Moon returned to the United States to play for the Houston Oilers in 1984. He racked up nearly 50,000 passing yards in 17 NFL seasons. Moon set a new club record with 3,338 yards passing in his first year with the Houston, a mark he would break four more times. In 1986, when the Oilers installed the run-and-shoot offense, Moon's quarterback skills finally became apparent to all. The wide-open offense showcased Moon's strong arm, running skills, and big-play ability. In 1990, Moon led the league with 4,689 passing yards. He also led the league in attempts (584), completions (362), and touchdowns (33), and tied Dan Marino's record with nine 300-yard games in a season. He earned NFL MVP honors in 1990. The following year, he again led the league in passing yards 4,690. At the same time, he joined Hall of Fame quarterbacks Dan Marino and Dan Fouts as the only quarterbacks to post back-to-back 4,000-yard seasons. Moon also established new NFL records that season with 655 attempts and 404 completions. Moon was traded to the Minnesota Vikings before the 1994 season. In his debut season he passed for 4,264 yards and led the team to the playoffs. In his second season in Minnesota, he again passed for more than 4,200 yards. Moon moved on to the Seattle Seahawks as a free agent in 1997 where the veteran star set franchise records for completions (313) and yards passing (3,678) and earned his ninth Pro Bowl selection. Injuries limited his play in 1998. In 1999, Moon joined the Kansas City Chiefs and spent two seasons as a backup there before retiring. Despite spending his first six professional seasons in the CFL, Moon ranked third all-time in NFL passing yardage and fourth in touchdown passes thrown at the time of his retirement. If those 6 prime years were not spent in Canada, where he threw for over 21,000 yards and 144 TDS, Moon would be even Higher on the all time list. Moon remains statistically one of the best players ever for the Oilers/Titans franchise. As of 2019's NFL off-season, Moon still held at least 37 Titans franchise records. In total, Moon would receive nine invitations to the Pro Bowl. While he never made it the Super Bowl, he did win five Grey Cups (CFL championships) in his six seasons in the CFL. Moon is often credited with throwing the most perfect spiral in NFL history. He now rightfully resides in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, as well as the Canadian Football Hall of Fame.Moon was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2006, becoming the first African-American quarterback and the first undrafted quarterback to receive the honor 9× Pro Bowl selection (1988, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1997) All-Pro selection (1990) 5× Grey Cup champion (66th, 67th, 68th, 69th, 70th) 2001 Enshrined on Eskimos' Wall of Fame 1990 NEA NFL MVP 1990 NFL Offensive Player of the Year 1990 UPI AFL-AFC Player of the Year 1989 Man of the Year 1997 Pro Bowl MVP 1982 Grey Cup MVP 1980 Grey Cup MVP 1983 CFL Most Outstanding Player 1983 Jeff Nicklin Memorial Trophy 1978 Rose Bowl MVP 1977 Pac-8 Player of the Year Oilers/Titans Career Passing Yards Leader with 32,685 Tennessee Titans #1 Retired Hall of Fame (inducted in 2006) University of Washington Ring of Honor (Inaugural Member in 2013)
  7. Round 56 Kelso- Greatest Horse For the past 70 years, the Triple Crown and the Breeders’ Cup have been proving grounds for a long list of Thoroughbred racing’s greatest champions. Some horses, though, have transcended the sport’s most famous stages. Horses like Kelso. Kelso did not run in a single Triple Crown race (His three-year-old season began after the Triple Crown races of 1960 were run) and his legendary career ended some 18 years before the Breeders’ Cup started. Yet in eight years of racing, the gallant and durable gelding accomplished more than virtually any other horse in the modern era. Kelso did more things better on more occasions over a longer period of time than maybe any other horse in history. To omit him from a list of the top five horses of the 20th Century would make a mockery of the process. He was voted Horse of the Year in five straight years (1960-64) – a feat no one has come close to matching. He won the prestigious Jockey Club Gold Cup five times. He captured the Woodward and Whitney Stakes three times apiece. He matched or broke a track record 10 times, at distances ranging from two miles to a mile and an eighth, on dirt and turf, on dry tracks and in the slop. He Still holds the World Record time for two miles on dirt of 3:19.1 When he retired in 1966, he left the racetrack as the sport’s all-time leader in earnings with $1,977,896 in purse money. That would equate to $14.5 Million in today’s dollars. And he did it without the benefit of running in the Kentucky Derby, Preakness or Belmont Stakes. He finished with a record of 39 wins from his 63 starts and was the sport’s all-time leading earner until 1979 when he was surpassed by Affirmed, a Triple Crown winner. Of Kelso's 63 starts,he finished in the money 84% of the time. He was out of the money 10 times. His record probably would have been even better if not for the huge weight allowances he spotted his rivals under handicap conditions for much of his career. In the list of the top 100 U.S. thoroughbred champions of the 20th Century by The Blood-Horse magazine, Kelso ranks 4th, behind only Man o' War (1st), Secretariat (2nd) and Citation (3rd). In his long career, Kelso defeated many leading Thoroughbred racehorses including Carry Back, Gun Bow, Bald Eagle, Tompion, Never Bend, Beau Purple, Quadrangle, Roman Brother, Crimson Satan, Jaipur, Ridan and Pia Star, as well as other top thoroughbreds, often conceding weight under handicap conditions. In doing so, Kelso beat more champions and Hall of Fame horses than any other thoroughbred racehorse in the 20th Century. Kelso was voted into the National Museum of Racing’s Hall of Fame in 1967. “Kelso was one of a kind,” said Hanford, who was voted into the Hall of Fame in 2006, mostly because of his success with Kelso. “There was never anything like him before and there has not been anything like him since. The way the game is today we will likely never see a horse have that kind of success for that long. They don’t make them like that anymore. In fact, they never did. I am here today because of one horse and one horse only. Although I've had a few stakes horses before, they didn't compare with Kelso. There is an old saying on the racetrack that 'a good horse is dangerous in anybody's hands.' How true that is. Of all the top trainers in the past that have had this honor, I may be a little bit prejudiced, but I don't think any one of them had their hands on a horse like Kelso." In the end, there are probably a thousand words or more that can describe the greatness Kelso brought with him to the track. Yet the legendary Daily Racing Form columnist Joe Hirsch said it best about the grand gelding when he wrote a single sentence about him. It read, “Once upon a time there was a horse named Kelso … but only once.”
  8. This is a valid and sane argument. I too Will avoid a vaccine that is rushed to market
  9. Wife and I stopped in to a local flea market the other day and the owner was talking to another gentleman about exactly this. That the government was going to try to mandate the vaccine and that this was going to be way for the government would tie vaccination to work force not allowing those who aren’t vaccinated to return to jobs. I’ve also read on the Facebook from some of my friends that the vaccination is going to be a way to data mine the population... I don’t even know what that means. I live right the center of trump country so I get to hear all this nonsense
  10. Round 55 1988-89 Calgary Flames- Best NHL team Won franchise’s first and only Stanley Cup.Perhaps one of the most well-rounded teams ever, the 1988-89 Calgary Flames, who featured multiple 50-goal scorers and allowed the second-fewest goals in the league. Led the NHL regular season with 117 points and a 54-17-9 record. Under the leadership of 34-year-old captain Lanny McDonald, the Flames survived an early postseason scare from the Canucks, who took Calgary to a 7th game. The Flames eventually matched up with the Montreal Canadiens in the finals in 1989, which was a rematch of the Stanley Cup Finals from 3 years prior. Doug Gilmour was able to notch two third period goals in Game 6, giving the Flames their first, and only, Stanley Cup in franchise history. The ‘89 Flames capped one of the best regular seasons in NHL history by capturing Calgary’s first, and only, Stanley Cup. This loaded squad featured a stacked class including the likes of Lanny McDonald, Theo Fleury, Joe Mullen, Joe Nieuwendyk, Al MacInnis, Joel Otto and Gary Roberts, and had support from one of the best “fourth lines” in playoff history.
  11. Round 54- 1968 Ohio State Buckeyes Ohio State’s last consensus title-winning team of the Woody Hayes era Ohio State played three teams ranked in the top four during the 1968 season and won each game by at least 11 points, including a 50-14 bludgeoning of No. 4 Michigan. (Hayes famously went for two to reach 50) Against undefeated USC in the Rose Bowl, the Buckeyes allowed Heisman winner O.J. Simpson an 80-yard touchdown run and an early 10-0 lead to the Trojans lead. But they forced five turnovers (including a key Simpson fumble) and outscored USC 27-6 in the final 2½ quarters. Only offensive lineman Dave Foley made the All-America team, but among the sophomores were future College Football Hall of Famers Rex Kern at quarterback and Jack Tatum at defensive back, 1970 Outland/Lombardi winner Jim Stillwagon and running back John Brockington. Five would be taken in the first round of the 1971 NFL draft.
  12. 52.13 Julie Inkster -Greatest womans golfer Majors won: 7 (1984, 1989 ANA Inspiration; 1999, 2000 Women's PGA Championship; 1999, 2002 U.S. Women's Open; 1984 du Maurier Classic) LPGA victories: 31 Notes: You want to talk about longevity? Inkster's impressive career has spanned 29 years and counting. Her 31 LPGA wins are second-best among active players. Inkster is the only golfer in LPGA Tour history to win two majors in a decade for three consecutive decades by winning three in the 1980s, two in the 1990s, and two in the 2000s. In 2019, Inkster will serve her third consecutive stint at the U.S. Solheim Cup captain. In her first turn at the helm in 2015, Inkster guided her team to a historic come from behind victory in Germany. The team trailed 10-6 going into the final day, but rallied for a 14 1/2-13 1/2 win.
  13. 52.13 " The Notorious" Conner McGregor- Greatest UFC Fighter Conor McGregor was practically a movement before he ever stepped foot in the UFC Octagon. Armed with a knife-blade wit, a smashing left hand, and the support of a nation ravenous for success on the worldwide fight stage, McGregor laid claim to the throne upon his arrival, and then accomplished every major goal he confidently set out before the world. McGregor joined the UFC in April 2013 with a quick KO of Marcus Brimage, and his star power immediately exploded. The next time out, he was featured in Boston, and his appearance nearly blew the roof off the building. Win after win followed, and while McGregor repeatedly reminded fans that a championship was a certainty, critics charged that his rise had been carefully orchestrated by the UFC to minimize the risk of defeat. McGregor exploded that narrative when he took on powerhouse wrestler Chad Mendes on short notice and knocked him out in two rounds. His matchup with Jose Aldo remains one of the epic buildups in MMA history, with the two criss-crossing the world and spewing invectives at each other, only to see McGregor win in a stunning 13-second knockout. That victory gave him the UFC featherweight championship and cemented his celebrity in pop culture. Since then, he’s become the top draw in the sport’s history, routinely blasting past the 1 million pay-per-view mark at a time when that business has declined due to the abundance of entertainment choices. In a moment where options are limitless, McGregor is must-see television. While his impact has been greatest on the business front, his athletic bona fides are also dazzling. He is the UFC’s first-ever simultaneous two-division champion, has wins over past and current UFC champs including Aldo, Eddie Alvarez and Max Holloway, and still boasts what is perhaps the sport’s most profitable, still-simmering rivalry against Nate Diaz.
