no i cant. our defense back then was comprised of-

townsend was hated back then just like gay and mcfadden are today. mcfadden was just a rookie playing nickel and was generally hated as much as well (until he finall got an int in the playoffs). ike was hated and even benched the following season. hope did pretty well for a season or 2 with the titans, but now i would take clark over him any day.
