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!

The Greatest Of All Time Team Needs Cornerbacks

Mel Blount and Dick Lane

This is a tough category.  There has been a ton of talent at CB over the years.  I would definately put Champ Bailey and Rod Woodson up there, but where is Deion Sanders coming from?  Fun to watch, yes, but one of the best to ever play, no.  Just my opinion.

The Greatest Of All Time Team Needs Cornerbacks

I would have to go two ways old school and new school.  Old school would have to be Mel Blount of the famed steel curtin defense was dominant at that position.  New school is definatly Champ Bailey of the Denver Broncos he is the master of his domain.

The Greatest Of All Time Team Needs Cornerbacks

Mel Blount of the Steelers and Mike Haynes of the Patriots and Raiders are my two CB picks.  Anyone who saw them play will understand those choices.

Thanks again for keeping this blog going.
