    Perkins may not be underrated but he is nearly forgotten. So was on the fence between Herschel and Perkins.

    I think Greg Ellis deserves a little love. Everybody throws around the WE COULD HAVE HAD RANDY MOSS but he was a ten year starter and pretty good player.

    I think some people have a bad taste in their mouth with Ellis because towards the end of his time here he was a whiny little girl.

    Ike was big but he was a corner. And a heck of a special teamer as well. Had a knack for blocking kicks.

    Yikes! Eb Ekuban? There was a reason he was underrated with Cowboys, was better with the Broncos.
