But we all knew that already. :Cheers And I'll tell you one thing...DeMarcus Ware is overrated. Watch a game he plays and count how many times he drops in coverage. Not very many. He is a one dimensional player. Let James Harrison and LaMarr Woodley do that and no one would be near them in sacks.

Uh...Dub...Esiason only had us down for Harrison (at #3) and Polamalu (#1). That makes 2, provided my calculations are correct. :D

I'm not sure if Timmons can be justifiably placed there yet, but he's well on his way.

Hard to disagree with that list until you get down to #5. Ray had a great career, but Patrick Willis passed out Lewis as the most dominant inside backer in the game some time ago (Timmons may be on his way into the discussion in the future if he keeps things up, though, because he has the ability to be a sack machine and a coverage machine in addition to being a tackling machine). Lewis is the leader of that Baltimore defense, but he's not even close to being even the best player on the Raven D...that undoubtedly goes to Haloti Ngata...that dude is an absolute monster.

Patrick Willis has really had a down year by his standards.

How is your cousin Gunnar doing with the cystic fibrosis? He's got to be in college now, right?

BTW...any top 5 list that doesn't include LaRon Landry is weak. He is clearly one of the leagues best defensive players.
