If only Nick Collins could come back :/



Still think he was the best safety we ever had. At least he got a ring.

Don't be dissing Willie Wood. He was a stud. 8 times Pro Bowl. 5 time All Pro first team. 2 more on the 2nd team. 48 ints. When he played they had either 12 or 14 game seasons. Add another 26 games to his career in a pass happy league with a lot of weak qb's and he would be looking at 50 ints. Laugh

Hmmm.. really?

I will say he might have been the most athletic safety in terms of range we have ever had.. probably close to Sharper there.

But in terms of best overall.. Willie Wood and Leroy Butler would have to be ranked above him.. IMO.

I have to say NICK COLLINS.

I think it is disgusting how his career ended. But that's a different issue.

I will also say LEROY BUTLER. Dude was very, very underrated. Played much longer than Nick. Was all-90s and should be in the Hall.

As for Willie Wood, I never saw him play.

I would say Darren Sharper, but I'm not Darren Sharper.

I think Willie Wood is #1, with Leroy Butler #2. I always liked Mark Murphy, too...

1. Willie Wood (and it's not close)
2a. LeRoy Butler
2b. Nick Collins
4. Don Hutson
5. Darren Sharper (it pains me to say it)

Butler is a long-shot for the Hall (he belongs), but the voters are such stat-whores.
Sadly, Sharper has the stats and longevity that gives him a much better chance.

Some of my other favorites were Chuck Cecil, Jesse Whittenton (who passed in 2012), Doug Hart and Kenny Stills

I knew Don Hutson played defense, but didn't know he was that talented. From Wiki "On defense, Hutson was a very good safety who intercepted 30 passes over the final six years of his career. Hutson's highest season total was in 1943, when he intercepted eight passes in only 10 games. In 1940, he led the NFL with 6 interceptions."

uffda udfa: It's okay... you called me the "A" word. All because I don't tickle the ears. I get it.
uffda udfa: So someone like Buck deserves privileges because he's a better fan than me due to his flattering opinions?
68md: wet blanket ? He works his ass off to keep the place going for you ?
Smokey: Zero, Why are you such a wet blanket host ? A real SB "Chat" should have been a priority for this site. Wet Blanket strikes again.
