I'm talking about safeties that can play the style of safety that Wade Phillips wants. And I don't mean to give the impression that I consider Quin a top 5 safety, but rather that there is a giant middle tier of guys that are all roughly equivalent that you might like in a different order from me. I just don't think there are that many great safeties right now. Part of that is just the evolution of the game.
