    Pretty good list. I don't think I'd have an issue with any of those names.

    yeah its a good list, as with any list there are a few names that you
    could argue should have been on there.

    most of those names did get mentioned, rodney harrison, roy williams,
    mike singletary, mike curtis......to name a few.

    it was a good show....now they are listing top 10 tight ends.
    not as much fun to watch.

    A couple of guys I thought should have made the list were:

    Ed Sprinkle - Played for the Bears back in the day, was easily the most feared player in an era when killer hits were the norm.
    Roy Williams - over Lynch any day. He built his entire reputation on making killer hits.
    Dennis Smith - He & Atwater were a force for the Broncos!

    I don't think Taylor should be that high either, he was a feared pass rusher but was actually not known as a big hitter.

    I would have liked to see Earl Cambell play defense.

    No Romo? If I were playing he would scare me....cause I would be afraid that he would go into a roid rage, snap, and try to end my career.
