Well even with the lock-out our offseason has just gotten interesting…
I will let the other guys stay on top of that for you; as for me, I will continue down memory lane.
So here we go to the next two on my list.
Now we have the other big time secondary player and hopefully this isn’t as big of a shock to everyone else as it was to me; however, after going through the numbers I found that there is a current player who I have not given enough credit to. Look at these stats with me:
7. Yeremiah Bell
Of course he led the team in each of these years in tackles; next to Thomas no one comes close to these numbers. However, these stats still don’t really compare the Thomas’ either, so we’ll leave him down on this list. I for one have not been too kind towards our secondary, and call it what you will I should have been happier we have a player like Bell. Someone has to get tackles, and for the past few years it has been Bell. Thank you Yeremiah.
Following Bell is a one hit wonder.
8. Trace Armstrong
His best season is undoubtedly his run in 2000 when he recorded 26.5 sacks. This is the 3rd highest sack total (including all of Taylors double digit years) for the year. Whether or not this was all Trace, or if it was the entire NFL trying to keep Taylor from beating them (he still had 14.5 that year) remains to be said; Trace still got the sacks.
Pop quiz: Outside of Taylor, Armstrong, and this year stud Wake: Can you name the two other players to record double-digit sack totals? (Hint: It’s not CC)
Well that’s it. My next installment includes my favorite “one hit wonder” and one of our two power-runners… but which one?
All feedback is good feedback!
