Just finished watching the hall of fame story on Deon Sanders. Your thoughts on the Prime Time ? I grew up watching the guy play, and loved every minute of it. Greatest CB that I personally watched play the game.

Loved the guy. He was certainly one of the best all around athletes i ever saw play.

I remember when he was making his free agent rounds around 93 or so, he came to Arrowhead and was courted by Carl and Marty. Wish we would have snagged him.

Can't dismiss Deion's athletic ability, but I like football players playing football, and Deion, while a great athlete at the corner position and as a returner, was not a football player.

He just wasn't a fan of contact. And you know, football is a contact sport.

Did I say he didn't deserve to be in the HoF?

I don't like his style of play, but I do know that, as I said, he was a great corner.

He was a damn good baseball player too. Much better than Jordan.

Really ? Micheal Irvin said he was the most physical corner he ever went up against. Irvin also pointed out that the best WRs of his era would not try to be physical with Deon because they knew Deon would win. Deon might not of been a hitter, but that wasn't his game. All Deon had to do was line up , and he pretty much shut down one side of the field, that's how he intimidated the other team..and it worked. I don't know about you , but I will take the mental intimidation that Deon imposed on teams, over the physical intimidation that a guy like Hasty, or Woodson, imposed on teams any day.

Ronnie Lott is a safety , not a CB. Ronnie Lott only dreamed of having the skills that Deon had.No Defensive back EVER imposed fear in an offense like Deon did.

Mike Irvin is still one of the best WR to play during Deon`s era...regardless of his drug problem. The fact remains, Deon imposed his will on offenses for an entire decade. I will take a non tackling Deon over any other CB.

You'd think that someone who was as firmly attached to his balls as you are would actually know how to spell his name.

He had the best cover skills ever.

In his prime, a much better "football" athlete was Rod Woodson.

Also returned kicks, also shut down Wr's, but could tackle like a safety and also picked off his share of passes...

Yes Deion was the greatest cover corner of all-time, but if your true to yourself you knew Deion was HORRIBLE at tackling. He hated contact and would just dive at ball carriers legs. There was nothing textbook about his tackling ability.

He is up there with Darrell Green as one of the fastest CB's I've ever seen.

The Expansion Panthers exposed him on offense AND on defense.

Then just fucking took his arse out the game.

I admit, I JIMPed a little...
