The Fearsome Foursome was great, but for my money I'd take the Rams D Line from the 70's....... Jack Youngblood, Merlin Olsen, and Fred Dryer.

They also aren't considering hand down OLBs? Derrick Thomas/Neil Smith, Pat Swilling/Ricky Jackson, Von Miller/DeMarcus Ware, Dwight Freeny/Robert Mathis all were pretty good.

All of those lines were good. That Rams 70's line was also awesome, I would vote them number 2 , The actual fearsome foursome,? I was probably too young to appreciate fully and they didn;t keep sack records back then. . So not sure whether they were as good as the hype or not. .

So for number one, I will go with the Purple Gang of the very early 70's. . Alan Page, Carl Eller, Jim Marshall and Miscellaneus (not sure off the top of my head but I remember he was good too)
.

The guy's name you are thinking of was Gary Larson. He was more of a stay-at-home type of D Tackle but he helped hold the line against draws, screens and QB scrambles.
Good player but nowhere on the level of Alan Page who was all but unblockable back in the day..

I would say that the best all-around defensive front was the Steel Curtain of the 70's but for pass rushing ability, my vote goes to the 70's Rams (Jack Youngblood, Fred Dryer, Larry Brooks, & Merlin Olsen).
