Best Safety in the League???

As much as I love Sean Taylor, i still have to believe Ed Reed is the best. I know he had a bad season for a variety of reasons, but why is everyone on the Troy Polamalu boat so quickly? It seems like every year there's a new
"best" at a position in the league...it drives me CRAZY!!!!

Re: Best Safety in the League???

I will take Taylor over all of them, he can do more combined than either one of the other 2, I will say Polomolu is more productive though, but that is in part to the system he plays in, as well as what he's asked to do. Taylor is as fast or faster than both of them, and he hits twice as hard, and we all know he has big time big play ability, it's not a knock on those 2 they are tremendous, but if I had to pick 1 I wouldn't have to think twice. Now if Taylor goes to jail it's a tough call, but probably troy would get the nod.

Re: Best Safety in the League???

I'll take Taylor anyday of the week. (with or without a loogie)

I still remember JJ Arrington laying down like a girl before Taylor laid a pretty mild hit on him. The thing that impresses the most about Taylor is the way he closes in the ball while it's in the air. - Amazing

JJ arrington did that a lot this year though. A RB that avoids contact is a wasted pick.

I liked taylor out jumping randy moss to deflect a pass in the vikings game the best myself

I will take the hit he put on that cowboy reciever in the first game when he seperated him from the ball and it went about 15 yards in the other direction!

Yes, that was a hellacious hit! It would be nice to see us blitz him a little more, though I'm totally happy with the way Williams uses him.

Re: Best Safety in the League???

Taylor is good but he isn't great yet. He can't read offense that well yet and is susceptible to getting beat on the deep ball.

I have 2 agree on this 1 he has a lot of potential but still makes a lot of mistakes is like williams he was really great when he was with woodson because he had 2 handle less coverage and do what he does best that's play close to the line.

Now that he has 2 do more coverage he's shown some flaws right now Ed reed for me is the more complete Safety Polamalu benefits for the defense they played but he has shown a lot of upsite.

If we're talking the future, Taylor no doubt. Right now give me Mike Brown.

If Taylor can stay out of the slammer, He will become one of the best ever. He could be up there with Ronnie Lott one day. Will just have to wait and see. I would take a free take S.T all day long.

Ed Reed because he is an amazing player who has almost no flaws in his game. He also is a beast on special teams with a shitload of punt and kick blocks. He's will also probably break the record for most defensive touchdowns by one player.

Re: Best Safety in the League???

Dan Patrick interviewed Chad Johnson on ESPN Radio the Thurs or Fri before the Super Bowl and asked who are the best defensive backs. For safeties, Johnson said Chris Hope (the "other" Steeler safety) and Ed Reed of the Ravens were the two best.

Johnson also called out Champ Bailey as the best cornerback by far.

Ask yourself this...Of all the safeties in the league, who would you rather have playing for us? Your lying to yourself if you say anyone other than Sean Taylor. This guy puts fear in opponents and teams make it a priority to keep balls out of his area.
