Ok, here is the deal, every Friday I will post a new Blog in which we will choose the greatest player ever at a certain position. Untill the next position is posted CBS members may vote for who they think the greatest ever is, at the end of the voting I will calculate everyones votes and will add that player to The Greatest Team Ever. I hope lots of you participate because I think this could be fun. I will try to post a running tally in a comment every day.

1st Possition - C      Vote for the best center of all time!! Please post your vote in a comment, if you wish to give some insight on your choice feel free to do so. Please start your post with the players name, and please make sure that you are naming someone who played the position being voted for that week, as those are the only votes that will count..........So who is our Center?

If it's best "all-time" performan
ce, then it's got to be the best record vs their competition at THAT time; otherwise realistically its hard to believe ANY all-pro center from the 300+lb steriod & beyond era couldn't outplay the earlier versions... However, for "best record" its hard to argue there's ever been better than JIM LANGER;
Dolphins, Vikes; 6 Pro Bowls, 3 Superbowls including 1972 Fins who (little remembered fact) did NOT pass to win - *checkout '72 superbowl Dolphins had 'maybe' 100 yds passing' but RAN up the gut to win w/Czonk; etc.; not exactly Jim Brown types) ...and he's in the Hall of Fame too.

Mike Webster, by far....If anybody beats him it is just a popularity vote based on todays game.

Great Idea DKM.

I gotta go with Jim Otto. Took a few pages to get him mentioned. Even as a fan of the rival Chargers, you have to recognise greatness even on the opposing team. Jim set the standard that centers are measured against today. Great player.

OK first off we are voting for C this week, Chamb Bailey does not qualify, secondly it has occured to me that it will be to risky for me to do the calculations at work so I have started a spread sheet here at home, sucks I won't get paid to do this but oh well its fun. So updates will be reported daily at around 10-11am.
