Lewis....Willis and Bowmen are great, but there is a reason Baltimore's Defense has been one of the best for over a decade. Lewis in his prime was a force...no one was on his level.

If we weren't talking about Lewis, this would be the easiest choice ever. It's kind of like asking whether you'd want Michael Jordan or Kobe Bryant and LeBron James. If it wasn't Michael Jordan, that would be an easy choice. Granted, this analogy has differences in ages, but you get my point.

It's hard to separate the homer from the logical thinker when it's your team. I watch these guys every game and see how instrumental they are to our defense. When one has to cover a tight end, the other is there to make the play on the other side of the field on a screen or quarterback pressure/run. Something one person cannot do, no matter how GOAT you are.

On the other hand, Lewis in his prime, was a one-man wrecking ball. Always seemed to be where the ball was. And, when he wasn't, it was probably because the offensive coordinator called the play to keep him out of reach.

For the poll, I voted for the duo because we know what we have in Lewis, but Willis and Bowman may not have even hit their prime yet and have already played at an elite level.

That being said, I would be extremely happy to have either scenario. You're going to have a good defensive infrastructure either way.


I know it wasn't really the point, but MJ over both Lebron AND Kobe? That's nuts.

Your opinion, I guess. Jordan single-handedly won games and would score nearly half the points. Not to mention a huge clutch player. He has no equal. Probably never will. And, I hate the Bulls with every ounce of my being as a Jazz fan. So, no homerism here.

I was thinking that as well. Come on, MJ over Kobe and Lebron? Slow your roll.

Ok how about this would you take Jerry Rice on your team or Calvin Johnson and Andre Johnson?


That just wouldn't be fair....Just thinking about it gives me the chills.

Pretty sure I saw a stat a while back that said that Kobe has just as many game winning shots as MJ does, if not more.

That's because he's taken many more game winning shots as well......................
