Leaving Troy off that list for Dawkins is criminal. Dawkins isn't half the player he is, I don't care how many games he's been in.

Also, as usual, the always-overhyped Ray Lewis makes another "greatest whoever lived because we're too stupid to see past his bullshit" list.

I must say Hines being on there over, say, T.O. is a little strange.

Troy hasnt played a whole decade, he started playing around the level he does now in 04 - 05

Antoine Winfield? Really? What about Dre Bly? Twice the INT's Winfield has...

I also might put Darren Sharper over Ed Reed, due to better stats and the fact that he's played a full decade.
