    So new rule, NBA: Unless you have a root canal at halftime, SHUT UP AND PLAY!

            Ronnie Lott is the man, he was so tough and such a huge hitter. One of the fiercest competitors in any sport.

                He has been starting strong side for the last 2 years with some spot duties before that. Doin a pretty decent job as well.

                  Sorry but this is the man who set the standard for safety play.

                  If there was a man who would be alongside Ronnie Lott as his fellow safety it would be this man.

                  Paul James Krause. . .Redskins’ No. 2 draft pick, 1964. . . Outstanding rookie year, led league with 12 interceptions, named All-Pro. . .Retired as history’s all-time interception leader with 81. . . Traded to Vikings for player and draft pick, 1968. . .Played in eight Pro Bowls. . .All-NFL four times. . .All-Eastern Conference 1964, 1965. . .All-NFC five times. . . Started at free safety in four Super Bowls, five NFL/NFC championship games. . .Born February 19, 1942, in Flint, Michigan.

                  http://www.profootballhof.com/hof/me...?player_id=116

                  Krause is the career leader in Interceptions and overall Turnover totals recording 100 takeaways in 226 games.

                  It is quite simply the worst thing we ever did as a team to let him go to Minnesota. In his first four seasons in Washington he had 28 Interceptions.

                  He was a great player and probably goes under the radar of most people here.

                    He could cover, he could hit, and he could make plays. Perfect safety. He set the standard for safeties. Not that he was limited to that position. He could play anywhere on the field. Really ahead of his time.

                      There definately were safeties that were great before him. You can even say that Jack Tatum helped influence Ronnie Lott's approach to defending the middle of the field etc. So Ronnie Lott wasn't the first.

                      But he is the gold standard by which all safeties are compared to. And yes, the Redskins definately made a mistake. We also made a mistake trading Huff. I don't know what the Giants were thinking.

                        Heh, I remember thinking when watching some Niner games last season "I've gotta cut back on my Madden gaming" as whenever I saw Lewis, he reminded me of those backup scrubs in Madden with no gear on other than his helmet and pads :)

                          I loved Ronnie Lott because he revoloutionized the safety position and my fav. player (Dawkins) plays like him and w/o Lott the safety position would just be the "safety net" and safety is my fav. position

                              Ronnie Lott recieves (and deserves) the proper amount of appreciation in my opinion. I wish Kenny Easley, who was in the same draft as Lott, and who many thought to be better than Lott in his prime seasons (he was better physically, 6'3'' with a 4.45 40 time, and was voted DPOY in 83 or 84), would get his due.

                                What about Philly trading Sonny Jurgenson for Norm Snead? I guess it happens pretty often.
