    Actually Todd Johnson can destroy people..unfortunately for him he's not good enough in coverage to ever be anything more than a backup/special teams player in the league.


    Nobody cares about your stupid fantasy team.

      ST is no question number one, but SI didn't even both to put him in the top 10 most feared? Typical of SI...

              I would think Peppers is the same way. He doesn't blow running backs up, he hits QBs pretty hard but he tackles them and try strip the ball.

                I love Adalius but I think he's a bit high...He hits hard but I will say that Bart Scott hits like a truck, and harder than Thomas. Ray Lewis is also a bit low in my opinion.

                    Sean Taylor left a yellow stain on Brian Moorman's pro bowl jersey from his facemask. Fun facts from Sports Illustrated the Magazine.

                      Halfway through the post I thought you were making a joke saying Moorman peed himself. I'm glad to see that route was not taken.

                        The "big hit" is always what makes the highlights, but I am not really a big fan of the "big hit" for one reason, 95% of the time it is delivered by using incorrect tackling. The "big hit" is almost always some guy launching is shoulders/arms/head at the opponents upper body, which is exactly what you are not supposed to do. The only position that should really lend itself to "big hits" are the safety positions if a WR is coming across the middle. Almost any other big hit is just a guy using a non-form tackle and having it luckily not backfire. For every "big hit" you see, you probably see 3 or 4 attempted big hits in which the ballcarrier just bounces off the guy and someone else has to tackle them.

                        On a semi-related note, does anyone else absolutely hate the way SI does their listing and power rankings, making you click through page after page. I don't really need a picture of each player, I am familiar with who they are.

                        I am done arguing, until somebody says something stupid.

                          Have you ever seen Bob play? What you said is exactly opposite of how Bob plays. If anything, he's a human missile with decent tackling form.

                          As for the list, this is yet another thing at which Sean Taylor is overrated.

                          <Add1ct> but tackling a mosquito might prove a challenge

                            overrated ??

                            if anything his coverage skills are overrated but to say his hitting skills...


                            RIP, Sean Taylor.

                              #1 in the NFL? He's not even the hardest hitting safety. Yes, he had the hit in the Pro Bowl, but that's one hit. Hell, go back a week, and Bob Sanders hit Ced Benson hard enough to force a fumble and take him out on the 2 touches of the Super Bowl that he had. I'm not saying Bob is the hardest hitting safety either (my vote goes to Dawkins), but if you want to judge by a small sample size like that, there are plenty of players with one or two great hits.
