    Deion may have been the best cover guy ever but no way he is the best CB of all time. Too many people get caught up in the show but he had some really good players next to him to cover his weakness.

    which was? He played great no matter what team he was on including at the time a pretty lowly Alt team.

    I think he was equally dominant. One of the top 3 defensive players I've ever seen, IMO. The only CB I would ever covet on my team. A true freak of nature.

    Deion was statistically his most dominate in Atlanta where he picked off 24 of his career high 53 int's. His rookie year in Atlanta he had over 1000 kick/punt return yards. He had over 1100 kick/punt return yards during his second season. In 1992 for Atlanta he had over 1000 kickoff return yards with 2 TD's. In the one season he played in SF he wasn't used on kickoff and punt returns but he made a huge impact at corner picking off 6 passes returning them for 303 yards and 3 TD's.

    Deion had a lot of trouble with Irvin because he was a big, physical WR who would battle for the ball and Deion hated contact which is why he rarely made tackles. Darrell Green was another great corner who had problems with Irvin because of his size and physical nature.

    Yes.

    When Irvin suffered his career ending injury in that game Deon came in and played WR going all 3 positions.

    And what a miserable game that was.

    And we had smashed the Vikings in the opening round and we all thought the magic was still there.

    That game was just the worst.

    Truly..

    I'm not sure we ever have recovered as a Franchise.

    It was like Cinderella at the Ball and the clock struck 12.

    Deion is a tool. Didn't like to tackle and didn't like to practice. Talented enough that he played on 2 already championship caliber teams. Otherwise he would have just been a cancer.

    Did Deion ever "Shut Down" Irvin as a 49er or as a Falcon?

    Exactly. It was tough rooting for him, but since he was a Cowboy you had to.

    Deion was a boil on the backside of the Cowboys. Just a real POS as a person.

    BS he was not a big hitter true but he tackled and as far as practice again untrue I went to all the training camps when Deion was there and he was at practice. He had talent but he also studied his opponets and knew their weakness and things they would do to give away the routs they were running. People want to claim he was scared? Punt returners are not afraid of contract, as a WR he would run the slants people do not do that if they are scared of contact.

    Me too, the guy did as asked be it defense, offense or special teams not a lot of players capable of doing that. He was a threat to take it to the house anytime he got his hands on the ball.

    Looks like a stalemate. Irvin wouldn't go off every game and Prime wouldn't shut him down every game.
