Agreed! The Redskins did an amazing job on Owens last year.

As for Smoot being overrated. I say Smoot is underrated and Bailey is over rated.

If Deion was playing today, in his prime, I believe he would still dominate.

Like him or not he was one of the best corners to have played the game, in any era.

When you have speed like he did, you don't have to be physical.

It's not like he played in the 70s, there were plenty of physical WRs in the league during his prime.

Re: smoot's ranking

With Smoot I think its one of those time will tell and its to early to tell. He did a great job this past year but he also was with one of the best Ds in the game. He will definetly be challenged this coming year and we will learn alot about him as a player. Hopefuly its not one of those god if we only had Smoot back.

Re: smoot's ranking

he has always been good. I don't think Smoot is overrated because not often he was burned when he played at the position and he had the heart that made up for what he lacked in physical talent. Bailey is over-rated He got burned alot in big games as a skin and bronco

Actually, given today's rules, good cover CB's have to rely much more on their speed then being physical. Sure, supporting the run is good and helpful. Generally speaking, however, a CB's primary job is to cover one WR - I don't think ANYBODY plays pure zone 100% of the time. To me, run support from a CB is gravy, and, if the D is calling corner blitzes, the non-blitzing corner better be able to lock down on the hot WR or burnage will occur.

Given the rules emphasis, the emphasis on man coverage, given his skills, and IMHO, Deion (in his prime) would thrive in today's game.

Re: smoot's ranking

i would prefer to have a corner who can jam his man and disrupt his pattern than a guy that cant geta bump on the guy. the wr in this league are just as fast as they are in most cases.and furthermore how many times have you seen deion miss a takle because he was soft

Re: smoot's ranking

Based on the new rules of corner coverage, which recievers would do well? If I am correct a big strong reciever is not needed as much as speed. I think our team just addressed this very issue. So they must see it the same way we do, speed beats the corner becasue you can not bump a man outside the 5 yard line cushion and speed takes over.

Michael Irvin would not even be a hall of fame canidate then.
