    Putting this out there because I am very curious plus his name came up in the top 3 defender thread.

    I say absolutely yes. Great athlete for sure. Elite speed. Great CB but I don’t see him as the best of all time. He was a pure cover guy. Literally avoided tackles and contact. Even joked about it. I think that really hurt his greatness in my opinion. One of the biggest games in his career Irvin abused him plus he got away with a couple pass interference calls. So I say yes. Great player but not the best CB. Not in the discussion in my opinion.

    What do you folks say?

    I say he was the best cover CB to play the game, anytime he had his hands on the ball he was a threat to take it the distance. QB got to the point they avoided him like the plague. JMO

    Lol. Deion not the best CB ever, Parsons not a superstar. This board in the off-season is ridiculous

    There's a few players that fans are incapable of discussing.

    Deion was great. An all time great in fact, but seeing how many had him in their top 3 all time defensive players, yes, on this board he seems to be overrated.

    No joke? In an opinion thread? No way.

    One season Champ gave up some sick number of receptions all season, I think it was 5.

    He’s the second greatest athlete I’ve seen, right behind Bo Jackson. He played two sports at the pro level, top 3 returner of all time, and probably the best CB to play the game. They stopped throwing his way and he still got 14 interceptions in Dallas alone. You’re really underrating him.

    I say people that respond like this are too stupid to offer a response. Too stupid to just pass on a post they don’t like. Lived with their parents too long. Likely struggle with the ladies.

    and? You feel Champ was better? Good for you. I my view Deion was the best cover CB to play the game. You disagree fine. You seem to have an issue with other people opinion

    I don’t know why I’m responding. I fall for these ploys too much haha.

    NOPE. He literally shut down half the filed for 9/10 of the game. The other 1/10th is just because it’s football.
