The Greatest Of All Time Team Needs Tackles

Posted on: March 7, 2008 10:42 am
 

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. Until 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 every ones 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.

8th Position - Tackles      Vote for the best Tackles of all time!! Please post your vote in a comment, if you wish to give some insight on your choices feel free to do so. Please start your post with the players names, and please make sure that you are naming someone who played the positions being voted for that week, as those are the only votes that will count, Remember this week is a double dip and you will be voting for 2 players..........So who our Tackles?

Please remember to rate this blog entry, and all comments as I appear to be losing value points for doing this blog, I happen to believe a lot of you enjoy it however, so I will continue even though I may be a rookie by the time it is over!

I know a lot of you like a preview of the upcoming weeks vote.....so try to hold back your excitement but since college basketball will have most of us excited enough I figured we would get Punter out of the way.

The Greatest Of All Time Team Needs Tackles

My votes are for Jackie Slater and Anthony Munoz. Munoz brought notariety to the position, as for Slater few did it as long, but none were ever that good for that long. I am sure there are some greats from the 50's that are forgotten about.

Munoz is a no brainer IMO. I am a die hard Saints fan and would love to say Willie Roaf but I dont feel he was as good as Pace, Jones, or Ogden who played all around the same time. I have to go with Art Shell as my second choice.

MUNOZ AND SHELL!!!!

Also, I would like to introduce myself to this blog. I am new to the sportsline forums and a die hard saints fan as I stated before. I live in New Orleans and the NFL is by far my favorite sport. I stumbled across this blog and love the idea of a group trying to decide age old arguments. Some that have been already etched in stone I have questions about but I am sure alot of thought was put into those picks.

ADDS for everybody and definitly 5s all around... Id appreciate the love to!!
