The esoteric choice on the AFC team was Russ Washington, the AFC-NFC format allowed the top NFC tackles to fight it out for two slots while the AFC didn't have the likes of Dan Dierdorf, Ron Yary, and Rayfield Wright, and even George Kunz (who spend most of his time in the NFC).
Washington didn't make any of the NFL-Wide 70s All-Decade teams we've re-posted.
The same things that could be said for Washington apply to Jerry Sherk. Though we'd have gone with Curley Culp, there is nothing wrong with recognizing Sherk who was a very good player, a 1976 UPI AFC Defensive Player of the Year in 1976 even.
In the NFC the odd choice, and unlike Russ Washington, Forrest Blue isn't a good choice. Maybe for a 1970-75 half-decade team, but for the 1970s? We don't think so.
Regardless, it's an interesting team, worthy of looking at.
