Bob Swenson was one of the best linebackers I've ever seen. He and Tom Jackson gave the late-70s Orange Crush bookend OLBs who terrorized the opposition. Statistics on tackles, sacks and stuffs weren't kept in those days, but Swenson definitely had the ability to blow up any play that came his way.

Tom Jackson was better known because of his personality (and longevity), but they both became first-team All-pros. Swenson's career ended early due to injuries, but he's an all-time great and should never be forgotten.

Since he had the same first names as me, I adapted him for my "handle". The pic obviously isn't literal, but how I remember him.
