The Greatest Of All Time Team Needs Cornerbacks

Posted on: April 11, 2008 10:05 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.

13th Position- Cornerbacks     Vote for the best Cornerbacks 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 on for that week, as those are the only votes that will count..........So who are our Cornerbacks?

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!

Well crap, it looks as though I was too late to count in the vote. My votes would have gotten Mel Blount within one of Sanders and I would have really liked to see him in there instead of Neon Dion, but that's the way it goes. I've had an extremely busy week, but I'll try to vote earlier next week. Have a good one everybody!

Mel Blount & Rod Woodson

Mel Blount has to be one of the two, he made the league change the rules... by far the most physical and feared CB of his generation...

As for the other side... tough call... did not want this to be a homer call, but Rod Woodson was as good as it gets for quite some time... I will take Rod over the Michael Haynes, Deion Sanders and Night Train Layne... tough call but I will go Black and Gold...

I just want to say that everyone on here makes good points for their choices. That's why I like this blog so much.Everyone has an opinion but no one is an ass towards anybody. I just like to say "kudos" to everyone on here and to let you all know I gave everyone on here 5's. If I missed someone I 'm sorry I'll go back and five you another time.
