Default Given the choice would you rather have a HOF DT or DE?

I'm going with a DT. Pressure up the middle is a QB's worst enemy. Great tackles make everybody's job easier IMO.

Tough to say 60. Ideally I want one of each . The DTs don't get the press and flash that the DEs get IMO but they are probably the ones that let DEs succeed. I'd go with a dominating DT I think

I'd go with DT as well. you can flash great sack stats as a DE and be horrible against the run and still make the HOF. To stand out as a DT, you have to be good at both run defense and pass rushing.

I don't know fellas. I guess by DE you can include all those guys that they label "edge" nowadays. I think for me, the edge guys can really impact and take over the game in a way that DTs generally don't. Aaron Donald is the best DT in the league, but I wouldn't take him over Von Miller. Heck, Willie Jerome was a HOF talent. Would you have taken him over Reggie White? I wouldn't. I can't think of any DT in NFL history that I would take over Reggie. Or Lawrence Taylor.
