Please don't say Polamalu. He hasn't played at that level in years.
Thomas/Chancellor for seattle both are pretty good, the guy from the 49ers i can't think of starts with a G I think, Woodson even though he's old, Wilson, Manning has made a difference in our own secondary. And yeah, when he's able to go Polamalu is and has always been a difference maker.
I think a second top flight safety to stick next to Manning or for use in 3 S sets would be excellent. Can't have enough DB talent in today's game and that includes S to me. As much as Wade likes to man up, he needs top flight guys who can cover.
