if you could have the best player at any position on the deffence which position would you pick.
uh Ray Ray for sure
Linebacker is the way to start building a defense. Every great defense has at least one outstanding LB. That's why Texans got Sharper, he's one of the outstanding LBs. Just look at TB with D. Brooks, Baltimore with Ray Lewis, Chicago with Urlacher, etc.
If I was a GM or Owner of a expansion team, and had a pick of any defensive player in the NFL. I would go with Brian Urlacher, he's young and he's one helluva athlete.
actually, the texans got jamie sharper, but we get your point, you probably just got confused in names and the fact they both played in baltimore. i like sharper better than boulware anyway because his coverage skills are more tuned and he's quicker to the ball carrier.
Man, I'm only still a youngin and my mind is going on me. Thanks for the correction.
I would say LB is very important as well. They stop the run and pass.
A top flight corner is the most important player to me. If you dont have that shutdown corner, like Champ Bailey, it is going to be a long day becasue that means you need use your safteys to help double instead of protecting against the big plays and you need to bring more people to blitz to make sure there guys dont get open deep which leaves you more likely to give up a big play.
For example, our last game against the Colts, we had to double Harrison all game long. We limited him greatly, but their 3rd guy Stokley had like 10 catches and burned us on a TD in the red zone late in the game because we had to double down on Harrison so there was no saftey there to defend the quick slant into the endzone. With a shutdown corner there is little need to double because he can keep up step-for-step with the other teams best WR, which means safteys can help prevent big plays.
Just my opinion.
Definetly...Ray-Ray gonna come see you if you got the ball...wherever you are!
Mine is a DL. Their the ones that can stop the run or the pass with great skill to. Once they get a hold of that qb then its over, you dont have to worry bout a safety or cb.
