CB in my opinion is the hardest position to play next to quarterback, and bailey is dominant at it. i think second best would go to urlacher or reed. but all of them are outstanding.

So the Ravens Defensive Unit as a whole has nothing to do with that? Give me Bailey.. you can put him on an island and he'll make things "happen on his own."

Because he's the best player at the most important position, my vote goes to Urlacher, for mainly that reason only.

Urlacher, Bailey, Peppers, Reed, etc. Those guys are all in the same tier, hard to pick an absolute best on defense.

Bailey..he gets many tackles (85 last year) and 10 INTs. Hes shutdown the left side of the defense and hes done it against some pretty damn good QBs and WRs

Hes a great tackler..hes a ballhawk and hes a leader

You can choose to not throw to him. The Ravens' also have a much better Dline to cause problems downfield. Reed acts as the centerfielder and is usually involved with with almost every play, somehow.

Reeds 1 of my favorite players, he from DA U but the reason Samari Rolle looked bad at times last year was because Reed wasnt in position and he blew his assignment. Bailey is nearly perfect. What a name too..CHAMP. im gonna name my child that..as a nickname and it'll become a name he uses as does Roland Bailey

Exactly. His supporting cast is helping him make plays. He's got a much better defense. So in essence hes not making plays by himself all the time. A safety, whos been in a top 3 defense for the past some odd years, versus a cornerback who has done it with Washington and Denver. A no brainer.

Are you talking about the play where Edgerrin James was held still for about 3 hours?

Not starting any fights, but I don't think Urlacher is the best Defensive player in the league.

I'd say Champ Bailey, because there's honestly rarely a legitimate shutdown corner since The Ty Law Rule.

Urlacher is on one of the best defenses, as is Reed.

I think a player on a piss poor defense that really stands out... I think Champ is the best player on the worst defense. If they actually had the ability to stop the defense and rush the passer, Champ would really shine.
