Hard to argue with this list. I'm really glad to see Eric Martin's name up there. He was my favorite on all of those late 80's/early 90's teams. Not fast, not flashy. He just came to work with his game face on every day. Throw the kitchen sink at him, and he would catch it, too.

Wes Chandler? He had 2 decent years before being traded to San Diego.
Abramowicz? Not great. Interesting but not great.

Athlete WTF? Really. I don't think anyone would argue there.

Returner? Bush? LOL. Floydd Turner was better than Bush has been.

DL? Glover & Moore. I guess everybody can't make the list but certainly 2nd team.

Bush is a terrible punt returner. He ranks near dead last every year. He had a decent season in 2008 with 4 TD's, but his punt return prowess is greatly exxagerated. He's simply not very good at all.

We'll probably see both Colston and Porter on that list in 5 years. Might have Jenkins, Graham and Nicks also. Vilma is a great LB but I don't know if he'll ever get mentioned among those 4 guys.

I don't have a lot to argue about on that list right now.

It's impossible to crack the linebacker list with this franchise but Vilma would be 2nd team starter

The decisions are getting harder every 5 years. That is a good sign
