Re: Redskins Best Ever Defensive Tackle

W/out question Butz. Butz was sort of ahead of his time. A 6'5 and 300 lbs DT was unheard of in the 70's.

Butz. He freed up the Ends allowing them to make plays

Dave Butz. No ifs, and, or Butz about it.

Re: Redskins Best Ever Defensive Tackle

Butz, and he should be in consideration for the HoF. He was completely underrated.

Re: Redskins Best Ever Defensive Tackle

Butz ate guards and centers for breakfest, dinner and lunch - and then had the running backs as a midnight snack. One of the best players not known beyond the beltway.

Talking Re: Redskins Best Ever Defensive Tackle

Dave Butz was the best !!! He dominated the line of scrimmage and freed up the DE (s) and the LB (s).

Re: Redskins Best Ever Defensive Tackle

Can someone give me a more modern equivalent for Dave Butz? Like who most resembles Butz from the last nine years?

Re: Redskins Best Ever Defensive Tackle

Kris Jenkins, when he is playing well, might not be a bad current-day parallel for Butz.

Re: Redskins Best Ever Defensive Tackle

I'm sorry, but Cornelius Griffin doesn't belong in the running here.

Butz all the way.

Re: Redskins Best Ever Defensive Tackle

Butz, but I must say Darryl Grant was also a beast.
