  • Most dominating Defensive Star(s) ever???

    Who would your list consist of and who's the best ever up to today to you?

    I got to give props to the "Minister," Reggie White. Like, I'd always put him above the real L.T., because you knew what Reggie White was all about. A beast D-Lineman who spent his first 2 pro seasons not in the NFL.

    Here's a few names I really respect after watching/reading about them, off the top of my head.

    Reggie White
    Deacon Jones
    Dick Butkus
    Deion Sanders
    Lawrence Taylor
    Ronnie Lott
    Joe Greene

    ^ Is that plausible
    Jets, Mets, Knicks, and the U's too cool for uze

    I don't care what anyone says, Ray Lewis is as good as any defensive player I've ever seen. Maybe as good as anyone ever. He's still a top LB a decade and a half into his career.

            LT is in a class of his own.

            My personal top 10 defensive player list of all time, taking all positions into account:

            1. Lawrence Taylor
            2. Dick Butkus
            3. Deacon Jones
            4. Reggie White
            5. Jack Lambert
            6. Deion Sanders
            7. Mike Singletary
            8. Ronnie Lott
            9. Joe Greene
            10. Allan Page

            Its hard making a top 10 including all positions, but I tried my best. Im sure many of you will disagree and include some names I left out, but when we're talking top 10 including all positions, its not just about being good, its about being a game changer, a trend setter. So guys like Ray Lewis (as the most popular name) get left out bc they weren't the best at their position, and didn't redefine position either.

            For me personally, the hardest names to leave off this list were Jack Ham, Sam Huff, Gary Nobis, Ray Nietske, Ed Jones, Nightrain Lane, etc.

                Lawrence Taylor changed the way the game was played forever.

                He's far and away the greatest defensive player in NFL history.

                  Showing your age with some of these names (that's a good thing). To me it would be LT and Deion Sanders because they forced offenses to literally play with less than a full field. Texas Tommy Nobis by the way.

                    It should be a crime to leave Derrick Thomas off of a list like this.

                      I like the list and agree for the most part.

                      1. LT
                      2. Deacon
                      3. White
                      4. Lambert
                      5. Butkus
                      6. Sanders or Woodson, they both changed the way. the position was played. I know Sanders gets most of the pub.
                      7. Lott
                      8. Ham
                      9. Page
                      10. Huff

                      I think Ham and Huff were better than Singletary. And both Lambert and Ham were more important than Joe Greene. Also think Page was more important to the DT position than Greene. I would almost go as far to say Sapp was too. Sapp and Green basically played the same position in cover 2 variations. And Sapp was just as dominant if not more.

                        For playing a majority of his career at 3-4 DE, Bruce Smith is deserving of being top 3-4. LT is one of course. The next group is Rod Woodson, Bruce, Reggie, Deacon, Butkus and Lott.

                          IMO Deacon Jones is the best most feared imo. He had more sacks than he's given credit because he played a few years without them keeping track of them.

                            "LT is in a class above his own". " LT far and away".


                            LT was a great great player no doubt, but there are surely some other great players in the same class as him. He wasn't that much better than the other greats.

                            It's like saying Joe Montana is in a class of his own... He is in the company of the other greats. He may be the best of the best, but he's not in his own echelon, and there in the hall of fame along with him because they were in the same "class" as him. Saying otherwise is subjective.

                            What do the vikings and marijuana have in common? Every time you put them in a bowl
                            they get smoked.
