Thumbs down 2008 ALL-TURD TEAM DEFENSE?

2008 ALL-TURD TEAM DEFENSE
Posted by Mike Florio on July 9, 2008, 7:39 p.m. EDT

Leonard Little, DE, Rams: Though he hasn’t killed anyone else since 1999, his DUI that resulted in the death of Susan Gutweiler is something we still won’t forget.

Jared Allen, DE, Vikings: Sure, he has been clean for a while. But a suspension in 2007 due to two prior DUI incidents gets him on the list for a second straight year.

Charles Grant, DE, Saints: Grant faces a manslaughter indictment after a fight resulted in a pregnant woman being killed.

Darrion Scott, DE, unattached: The former Viking was busted twice in the past year, once for some of the most appalling allegations of child abuse we’ve ever seen.

Jason Taylor, DE, Dolphins: Wants out of Miami but lacks the stones to say so publicly. And then there’s the whole dancing thing.

Fred Evans, DT, Vikings: Pleaded guilty last August to two felony charges after an incident in which he went bonkos while a member of the Miami Dolphins.

Vince Wilfork, DT, Patriots: Threw an elbow at J.P. Losman’s knee and a finger at Brandon Jacobs’ eyeball.

Albert Haynesworth, DT, Titans: A year of good behavior while trying to get a new contract isn’t enough to make us forget that face-shredding of Andre Gurode.

Rocky Bernard, DT, Seahawks: Yet another NFL player who doesn’t know how to properly resolve conflict with the ladies in his life.

James Harrison, LB, Steelers: Ditto.

Michael Boley, LB, Falcons: Um, ditto.

Jordon Dizon, LB, Lions: Busted six days before the draft for DUI.

Antonio Pierce, LB, Giants: Pleads guilty to animal neglect.

Lofa Tatupu, LB, Seahawks: Arrested for DUI; recently pleaded guilty to the charge.

Lance Briggs, LB, Bears: Crashed his Lamborghini and ran away. Skipped voluntary workouts after getting a big contract.

Brian Urlacher, LB, Bears: Nasty text messages to the mother of his child, and nasty treatment of the franchise that has paid him a ton of money over the years.

Pacman Jones, CB, Cowboys: Adam Jones gets a clean slate. Pacman Jones doesn’t. A full suspension for all of 2007 coupled with an ongoing sideshow of disrespect for the game gets him a spot on the 2008 edition of the team.

Aqib Talib, CB, Buccaneers: This Pacman-in-training already has done what Jones never did — Talib got into a fight at the rookie symposium.

DeJuan Tribble, CB, Chargers: See Gosder Cherilus.

Jack Ikegwuono, CB, Eagles: Drafted despite facing burglary charges. For stealing an Xbox. And not even a 360.

Kenny Wright, CB, unattached: Two arrests were bad enough. Losing a footrace with a cop was even worse.

Fabian Washington, CB, Ravens: See Rocky Bernard. And James Harrison. And Michael Boley.

Willie Andrews, DB, unattached: Cut by the Pats after two offseason arrests, including most recently a charge based on pointing a gun at his fiancee’s head. So, basically, ditto.

Kalvin Pearson, S, Lions: And ditto.

Dwight Smith, S, Lions: Former Vikings defensive back has been good for an arrest per year of late.

Rodney Harrison, S, Patriots: Suspended for HGH possession, and then claimed it wasn’t cheating. Oh, and being voted the dirtiest player in the NFL for like the umpteenth time in a row doesn’t hurt.

Wasn't his charges dropped or something? Don't get me wrong, I think he should have burned for it, but celebrity status has a habit of winning out. Lately that's been changing, but not by a whole lot.

He accepted the lesser charge of obstruction of justice and agreed to rat out a couple of his homies to avoid murder charges.

However, I'm sure the reason that he didn't wind up on this list is that he's since "found God."



Give me a break.

Sorry, when I see his face and hear his name I don't think great LB. I think, I can't believe he got away with murder!

Fa-Q Ray (I need 4 fat guys in front of me, get me out of this 3-4 defense) Lewis!

What? How dare you question the greatness of Ray "Jump On The Pile After The Play Is Over While The Statman Credits Me With Two Solo Tackles" Lewis! Blasphemy!

If Killah Ray played all his games in Baltimore, he'd be credited with 750 tackles every year.

You are clearly downplaying his greatnes when he's in Baltimore. I'd forgotten about he Obstruction charge, but I did remember he had ratted out his guys.

I think Hammer pretty much said it best when describing him.

Imagine, a MLB who has 2 studly DT's in front of him and 1 or 2 run-stopping (i.e. tackles out of position) DEs that can suddenly make plays all over the field. LOL

so now Ray Lewis is overrated? So does that mean Jack Ham and Jack Lambert were too when they had arguably the greatest defensive line of all time in front of them?

I think he's a tremendous athlete. However, he even admits he's a product of the system that Baltimore built. They've designed the entire defense to cater to him. Jack Ham and Jack Lambert didn't have the defense built around them to make them better, they were a collection of guys who all made each other better.

Ray's best years came when he played in a 4-3 defense with a couple of wide bodies in front of him. When they flirted with the 3-4 defense, his performance dropped significantly. He went to management (and did an interview) where he basically said I can't be me without guys in front of me. He struggled to shed blockers that were getting to him much faster than he was used to, because the D-line wasn't stout enough to let him run free.
