I have to say is between Kimo, Hartings, Farrior.....

I go with Hartings because he had shored up one of our very weak positions at the time and has consistantly played at a Pro Bowl level ... (While Having a Bum knee i might add)

I'll go with James Farrior with Wayne Gandy and Will Wolford running a close 2nd. Farrior was a steal. A very productive LB who can cover. We did however get some very productive years from OT's Wolford and Gandy.

At first I was going to say Farrior:
- If it wasnt for Ed Reed, he may have joined the elite club of Steelers to win NFL Defensive MVP!!!!!

But how about Kevin Greene:
- Was a big big part of a defense that carried a pretty average offense to the Super Bowl.
- In that Super Bowl the D held a Dallas team that has to rank among the 6 or 7 best teams ever in relative check
- Greene was also part of a revival for the Steelers.... Cowher was able to create "Blitzburgh", and Greene may have been the biggest piece of the puzzle (no disrespect to the headcase/animal Greg Lloyd).
