Why he might be annoying:

    He was known for the now-illegal head slap where he would slap an offensive lineman in the head during a play.
    He is not on the all-time sacks list due to the fact the stat wasn't kept as a record until 1982.
    He tried his hand at acting during and after his football career, showing up in such shows as The Odd Couple, The Brady Bunch and ALF.
    He says that golfers are the best athletes.
    He was a spokesman for Miller Lite.

Why he might not be annoying:

    He is renowned for his influence of football's defensive end position.
    The term quarterback sack is credited to him. Had it been an official stat during his playing career, some estimate he would have been ranked third all-time.
    In his 14 years in the NFL, he only missed six games.
    During a stint as a singer, he was backed by the band that would become War.
    He ranked #15 in the NFL Network's 100 Greatest NFL Players of All-Time [2010].
