Whatever, cut that meat.
I always thought he was a great QB, and a funny guy, I also will never call him Mr. Potato Head again.

Basically brought VOn Miller in so those 2 can fight it out. At least Stephen A. Smith did by starting off the conversation with that baited question.

I really wish you would not use that thread title either. It's a poor choice of words and you could be a lot more creative than that.

However, using the screen name of the Roman god of partying would probably be one reason you have no problem doing that. It does offend me. However, I am a big boy and I have heard a lot worse than that in my day. I just want you to know it takes away from your original thread topic and I could care less what you actually said after that.

Pryce was a better player than Wilson and Pryce went on to have a great career in Baltimore as well. So if we are talking about the draft pick Pryce was better if we are talking about contributions towards the Broncos team then maybe I can see Wilson be better.

I was a bit younger when Wilson played for us but I always thought he was the heart of the defense. I thought he was a complete stud and people where scared of him. Was I wrong ?

Al Wilson was very good, but isn't in the conversation for 10 best linebackers ever where Atwater is in the conversation at safety. People feared Atwater bringing the heat.

Offensive players didn't fear Wilson anywhere near Steve Atwater. Especially when it was Atwater and Dennis Smith patrolling the field. They wouldn't even be able to play nowdays because Dennis Smith was a headhunter.

I think it was Nate Lewis? Charger wr? could have name wrong. It was at mile high and he was on a fly pattern up the left sideline. Smith crowned his helmet, in a full launch, right into the players facemask while he was receiving the ball. From what I remember the player was knocked out, face a mess, they had to remove facemask with screwdriver before taking helmet off because it was all busted into the WR face. Not sure I ever saw Wilson do something even remotely as vicious as what Atwater and Dennis Smith used to dole out.

So know I would say no way Wilson was as feared by players as Atwater. They had to deal with Wilson to move the ball, but Atwater they worried would take you out of the game with one big hit. He would often hit an offensive player really hard in the first half, making that player dissapear in the 2nd half.

Hard to play after getting your bell rung.

Well, heart of the defense missed tackles. He was very inspirational and fiery and he was a good player. I do not think he ever made a Pro Bowl.. maybe one. Pryce made at least 4 probowls and played both DT and De in his career

Dennis Smith in his younger days was just as lethal patrolling the secondary as anyone else you could name, be it Ronnie Lott, John Lynch, Jack Tatum, Steve Atwater, and was still a feared hitter in his later days too....if you were an NFL WR, and he was nearby, you better have your head on a swivel.

some of his and his buddie's greatest hits for those who never witnessed them....

If you didn't know, the safeties in the early 80s for the USC Trojans were Lott and Smith. How would you like to be a slot receiver and face one or both of them?

THose leading with the helmet would have our team in financial trouble individually.
