4) Isaac Bruce - 4 time Pro Bowler, 5th player to reach 1000 receptions in a career, 2nd all-time in receiving yards, game winning touchdown grab to bring a Super Bowl victory to St. Louis.
5) Jackie Slater - played his entire 20-year career with the Rams organization, playing 19 seasons for the Rams in Los Angeles (1976–1994) and one season for the Rams in St. Louis in 1995

'COVER CORNER' was the phrase used.  Besides, he wasn't paid to tackle...he was paid to take the best WR off the field and he did...did it so well, he causes entire offenses to ignore his side of the field.  NO ONE and I mean NO ONE at his position ever had that affect on teams.

Now pay attention.....

Reality number one: Football is a contact sport.  Being nothing but a "cover" corner is only playing half of the position's responsibilities.  So, best cover corner in the history of the NFL = A+, not tackling = F

That's a "C" average.....

Mike, I wish you had taken care of the Packers for me, but...

I need to be of clearer mind (i.e. sober) to really think about it, but here's the consideration set:

Forrest Gregg
Paul Hornung
Don Huston
James Lofton
Ray Nitschke
Bart Starr
Jim Taylor
Reggie White
Brett Favre (yeah, I know, but realistically...)
Donald Driver (probably not, but he's my favorite Packer of my lifetime)

If coaches and other personnel are considered as well, then obviously Vince Lombardi and Curly Lambeau get considered too.

Mike, if you see this, please let me know if I missed anyone.

 Norse's point is that he didn't get the complete job done...I.E making a tackle.

I agree that Deion was good at covering but he was in no way the BEST CORNER BACK EVER as Elvis put it. The man couldn't tackle a tackling dummy and the last time I checked tackling was still a part of the game.

But his point doesn't matter. Getting the job done is getting the job done. People have to work harder than me to do the exact same job I do everyday. That's their fault, not mine. Work smarter...

Believe me Ashlie, I understand his point.  I just don't like players being deified when their game is only one sided.  Like I said, I believe Deion to be the greatest cover corner in the history of the game--the man was incredible in that respect.


Personally, I still believe Nick "Night Train" Lane to be the best CB in history.  He was feared to the point that coaches didn't like to run or pass to his side of the field--now that's the most dominant CB in the history of FB!  (IMHO).....

With all respects Ashlie, when an entire defense has to shift to adjust to runs to a cornerback's side because there's a tackling gap there....that's a weakness.

 An even greater point to Prime's effect on a game.  His ability made teams ignore that side of the field completely...teams didn't run at Deion's side of the field.  He's wasn't void of tackles...he did it when needed.  He never ran out of the way.  40 Whiners playoff game vs the Bears, he could have been out there playing bones, never did anything to that side.

On the tackling deal, if he is left with making alot of tackles something else is wrong...that is what the DE's LB's are there for.  

Lane played in different area when you could mug WR's...rule changes would have killed his ability to play in Deion's time.

I wasn't defending Deion, I enjoyed watching him, no more no less. I was tipsy when I got home last night, and apparently passionate about some things happening in the LR, this morning, I don't care, so carry on.

No, he didn't when needed....I lost respect for him when I saw him just getting in a ball carrier's way until others came to tackle him.  It was the most pathetic thing I ever saw on the field.  Like I said before, he was the greatest cover corner of the game, but he played it with a tu-tu...

 An even greater point to Prime's effect on a game.  His ability made teams ignore that side of the field completely...teams didn't run at Deion's side of the field.  He's wasn't void of tackles...he did it when needed.  He never ran out of the way.  40 Whiners playoff game vs the Bears, he could have been out there playing bones, never did anything to that side.

On the tackling deal, if he is left with making alot of tackles something else is wrong...that is what the DE's LB's are there for.  

Lane played in different area when you could mug WR's...rule changes would have killed his ability to play in Deion's time.
Ok well you take that corner that can tackle...I'll take Deion because no one that tackles could cover any where close to his ability. He takes away an entire side of the field, no other CB has ever done that. My Ends and LB's will clean up the rest.
