Best defensive backs ever!
I don't know many, but here's my list:
1. Rod Woodson
2. Deion Sanders
3. Ronnie Lot
4. Ty Law
Lott and Woodson for damn sure, Sanders is a top 10 all-time corner, Law is a future HOFer. I watch a lot of the old-school NFL Films stuff, and guys like Larry Wilson and Dick "Night Train" Lane stick out to me. Wilson, a strong safety, pioneered the safety blitz, and Night Train Lane was probably the hardest hitter during the 50s and 60s...and he was a cornerback, not a safety. Mike Haynes, Ken Houston, and Mel Blount joined Lane, Lott, Woodson, and Wilson on the All-Time team back in '94. For the record, Houston was the guy who made one of the greatest tackles ever when he stuffed a Dallas fullback on the goal line on Monday Night Football. And one more thing about Wilson...he once intercepted 2 passes in one game with 2 broken hands. That's just bad ass.
But if I have to pick one to be the all-time greatest, I think I'd go with Ronnie Lott.
I wouldnt put Law in the Top 5
A general Top 5 would consist of..
Lott, Sanders, Rod Woodson, Dick Lane, and Mel Blount
Honorable Mention: Willie Brown, Mike Haynes, Lester Hayes, Jack Tatum(just for being so damn underrated) and no not just because they were all Raiders.
Needs more Jack Tatum.
