I didn't realize Darrelle Revis and/or DeMarcus Ware played for the Steelers :)

I'm sorry but DeMarcus Ware imo isn't the best, His sack total dropped loads, yes held a lot but that can be said about Suggs, Woodley and Harrison.

Polamalu is much better than Revis, Polamalu can cover, tackle, fug he does everything, did u see how he jumped over the line in the AFC Championship game to stop flacco on inches? I saw Revis get burned by Ted Gin Jr this past season, maybe Wallace can put Revis in his place as well, for me Asomaghua and Woodson are better corners.

Revis is yes, a Very good cover corner, but never better than Bailey in his prime. Woodson imo is the all around best corner, he can tackle, blitz, hit hard and cover well. Oh yes he's also a very good teammate, he doesn't cry about contracts but instead Donates millions to charities.

I love Woodson.

Watch this. Look at all the plays he made.

Watch this. Owned, all the Jets cry about Rhodes fuging that play up, no that was one of Ted Gin's few good plays in the NFL.

This is a good thread, it's quite interesting and sad at the same time to see who your team passed over to draft someone else. I don't have to say much because it's a rarity Ozzie Newsome misses come Draft day but he certainly has his screw ups.

1997- Round 3 64: Jay Graham RB OVER CB Ronde Barber(Ronde was chosen 2 spots later)

2002- Round 2 52: Anthony Weaver DE OVER Antonio Bryant, Antwaan Randel El, Deion Branch

2005- Round 1 22: WR Mark Clayton OVER WR Roddy White

But the big one as everybody knows is giving up the possibility to draft Vince Wilfork by giving NE our 1st round pick in 2004 to select, Kyle fricken Boller!!!
