No. 6: Deacon Jones
Deacon Jones was the greatest defensive end in NFL history, the man with the coolest nickname, from a Los Angeles Rams team with the coolest uniforms, from the coolest-ever nicknamed unitthe Fearsome Foursome. Jones coined the term quarterback sack before the league kept stats for the category. He was the high priest before Reggie White and will go to his grave getting less pre-ESPN credit than he deserves for revolutionizing his position.
