Better than LT? Were these guys sniffing glue or paint? LT was a one-man wrecking machine. Ham was no where near that level. LT was the only LB to ever win MVP.
They were asked to do completely different things. Taylor was a great pass rusher, but Ham was the more complete LB. If you didn't watch Ham every game in the 70s you really can't comprehend how good he was.
