Best player to wear every number.

Somehow the NFL's all-time sack leader has been forgotten....

yet another example of why the bleacher report is a joke...

OJ and Jim Brown both wore 32;  Art Shell, Anthony Munoz, and Bruce all wore 78.  Can we just say tie...  I love Bruce but Shell and Munoz dominated their positions just as much as Bruce did.

42 Jackie Robinson and Ronnie Lott...that is impressive too

Homer here and anti-Miami bias obvioulsy, but Hasek's career seems better than Csonka's.  I never saw him play but Hasek was a perrenial MVP candidate for several years.  Csonka made the ProBowl in less than half of his seasons.

#33 - Larry Legend, Kareem, and Roy ... that might be better than 78 even without a great football player

#7 Elway and Mantle

#4 Orr, Favre, Gehrig

I remember ESPN did this a few years ago. What stuck out in my memory was that #38 was the hardest to come up with. Curt Schilling was pretty much the best option.

#57 is even worse (at least on this list):   Francisco Rodriguez.
