BTW I nominated Glenn just bc he dosn't get enough credit for the job that he does and if salary cap were ever a consideration he wouldn't cost nearly the cash that those other super-hyped players would get.
But with an increase in pure-speed rushers these days, Ogden has become more and more ill-equipped skills wise. Freeney owned him hard. Freeney got owned hard by Pace (and I'm sure Jones could handle him too). Ogden is the first of those three guys to start showing signs that he is heading down the hill now. Give me Jones or Pace over him any day.
This whole Jones > Pace & Ogden thing is kind of annoying, people act as though they've been saying that forever. When in reality, half those people probably jumped on the bandwagon after this season. If I ran a power-blocking scheme, I'd go for Jones. If I ran a zone scheme I'd go with Pace. This season should provide a better comparison between Pace and Jones than last year. We'll see both guys with more equal guys beside them, we'll see them in more similar offenses, we'll see them in more similar blocking schemes.
Basically, Pace edges out Ogden for the best out of the three. Jones edges out Pace for the best 05-06 season.
