Anthony Munoz, probably the best offensive tackle in the game, played every season of his career with the Cincinnati Bengals.
Unfortunately, that is why he is featured in this article.
The Bengals only made the Super Bowl twice, and both times their dreams were crushed by Joe Montana and the San Fransisco 49ers.
Still, Munoz's legacy is not hurt by his lack of a ring.
Every snap of every game of every season, he punished the defensive lineman who had the misfortune of facing him. Ranked the 11th greatest player of all time by NFL Network, Anthony Munoz was the first Bengal to reach the Hall of Fame and definitely the most talented Bengal of all time. He was one defensive stop in the fourth quarter away from a Super Bowl ring, but either way, he is the greatest offensive lineman of all time.
Jackie Slater played for 20 years in the NFL, all at a high level, all with the same team.
And no, he was not a kicker (or Brett Favre).
Slater was an offensive lineman who went head-to-head with some of the biggest guys in the game in the trenches every play.
Slater is the definition of durability. He was a solid tackle for the Rams for two decades, and even though they could never win the Super Bowl, he helped players like Eric Dickerson shine. In 1983, Slater had possibly his best season when he was part of a line that allowed only 23 sacks and helped Dickerson rush for 1,808 yards as a rookie.
Although he only reached the Super Bowl once and suffered a loss to the 49ers, Jackie Slater has cemented his place as one of the best offensive tackles to play the game.
