Kareem Gbaja-Biamila Deserves Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame

Mary Langenfeld-USA TODAY Sports

Defensive end Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila will be inducted into the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame on Saturday. It is an induction that is a long overdue as Gbaja-Biamila is one of the greatest defensive linemen in the most storied franchise in NFL history.

KGB’s 13.5 sacks in 2004 were the best in the NFC, while his 74.5 career sacks are a Packers franchise record. He also was the first player in franchise history to record at least 10 sacks in three straight years. Even though Clay Matthews (42.5 sacks) will surely break the Green Bay’s sack record one day, especially after signing a long-term contract, Gbaja-Biamila will still be the leader for a couple more years.

It was Gbaja-Biamila who broke the great Reggie White’s franchise record of 68.5 sacks. At the time, it came with mixed emotions from the fan base. However, all records are meant to be broken and the Packers could have not asked for a better player to have the outstanding honor.

The fifth-round draft pick in 2000 ended up having a far better career than anyone could have anticipated. The only regret Green Bay has is not being able to get one of their best defensive players a Super Bowl ring. Regardless, Gbaja-Biamila had plenty of success in the nine years he played for the Packers, which he would say is good enough.

Gbaja-Biamila finished his career with 290 total tackles, 18 forced fumbles, seven fumble recoveries, 11 passes defended and one interception that he returned 72 yards for a touchdown during the 2002 season. He also managed to record 18 total tackles and 2.5 sacks in eight postseason games.

Watch Fitzgerald Send Cardinals To NFC Title Game

I pronounce this the greatest game I've ever witnessed. There aren't enough words to describe the ebbs and flows that occurred during the fourth quarter of this NFC Divisional Playoff. Both teams should be proud of the way they played, but the Cardinals will be the ones moving on after this Larry Fitzgerald touchdown.

Watch Cardinals' Palmer Throw Ugly Interception

For someone who played like a MVP all season long, Carson Palmer has looked anything but tonight against the Green Bay Packers. If he doesn't redeem himself in the fourth quarter, the No. 2 seed Arizona Cardinals will be sitting at home watching the playoffs with the rest of us next week.
