Okay let me put it in your language. Butkus never made any important plays. Subjectivity here is everything since its your opinion that should be the marker for achievement. Since ZT out performed Butkus in almost every area that can be measured
I am not & will not compare two players who played 30 yrs apart. I never watched Butkus play and unless you are in your late 50s then I suspect neither did you.
I cannot comment on anything about him, other than what I have read or what others have said about him. Which is he was one of the greatest MLB to ever play.
Time to move on. We disagree that Zach's play warrants the HoF ( Which again I have said many times that he will make it )
