Default Polamalu

This person that I know claims that Adrian Wilson is better than TP and every other safety. My initial reaction was "NO WAY" and still is. He says that if he were builing a defense he would pick Wilson. Outside of the SB, I haven't watched the Cardinals play. How can I make a good point?

I know this is funny right?

While Wilson is a very good safety, there is no safety in the league who is as diverse at Troy Polamalu.

I have seen Troy do things I've never seen before in a saftey. I've seen him Completely dive over the entire line to disrupt a play. I wouldn't trade him for anybody.

The only safety that can be used in the same sentence as Troy is Ed Reed. End of story.

Troy's indisputably better in almost every way possible. But just ask him how many rings Wilson has for safe measure

I don't agree. I don't see Reed jumping over a line of scrimmage to stuff a run play.

I don't see Reed running up to support in the run game.

Reed plays center field, he's not nearly as versatile as Polamalu.

Reed gets all of his interceptions off wounded duck passes and tipped balls because of the people in front of him. Anyone could do what he does behind that front seven of theirs.

Polamalu is the only player in the league that plays every position on defence. In short yardage, like against the Ravens in the AFCCG, he gets stuck in almost like a lineman. He plays the run like a linebacker and he covers like a corner. If I'm drafting a team, Polamalu is my first round pick every time.
