    " Freeney has been playing on the fast track of the RCA Dome, so it will be intriguing to see if there is any effect now that the playing surface has been changed to FieldTurf. "
    ****************
    Maybe the FieldTurf will slow that succer down a little bit - OL guys trying
    to handle him up in Indy will I'm sure take all the help they can get - just ask
    Jonathon Ogden.
    Anyway, this article ranks Freeney and Carolina's Peppers as the 2 best DEs
    in the NFL - tough to argue with that. They also rank the tackles - maybe TJ
    will appear towards the top of that list in a couple years ?

    These ratings are pretty good, but I don't know if K. Williams is the best DT in the league.

    Lol.... What?

    He hasn't missed a game since 2002, and has played in 60 of 64 games.

    When was this ranking made? 2001?

    And if Kevin Williams is better than Shaun Rogers, I guess Run Stopping and pursuit are no longer traits required of a good DT.

    I agree that Williams shouldnt be at the top of the list.
