Remember that guy we had so many years ago, who now is an analyst on that network (that loves to make up silly headlines about us). Yeah he was one.
Remember Cliff Harris, yeah he was one. Charlie Waters, yeah him too.
Oh yeah, let's not forget the guy who won SB 28 for us, James Washington.
What's happened since Woody? We thought we had one, used the eighth pick in the 2002 draft on him, this fraud even had a rule named after him, wow he must be good! Somewhere along the way he got dumped by Kelly Rowland forgot how to tackle, forgot how to cover and found God. After him just a bunch of temporary patches, Keith Davis, Patrick Watkins etc.. Kind of a coincidence that Roy had his best seasons while Woody was still on the field. Why have we neglected the most important position on the field for so long. Don't believe me, Look at the the final four teams in the Championship Games. Troy Palumolu, Brian Dawkins, Ed Reed and Adrian Wilson...Heard of em.
Want to win another Super Bowl? Forget all our other problems, find
a Safety. I took a look at the last 20 Super Bowl winners to see
how they fared at the safety spot. You ready?
89 SF- Ronnie Lott
90 SF-Ronnie Lott
91 NY-Dave Duerson (Yeah that one from the '85 Bears)
92 WAS- Todd Bowles
95 SF Tim McDonald
97 GB-Eugene Robinson
98 DEN-Steve Atwater
99 DEN-Steve Atwater
00 STL-Rich Coady

05 NE Rodney Harrison
06 PIT Troy Palumolu

What does this means? It means out of the last 20 SB winners 17 had
a great safety. That's right I said 17 out of 20! Want to know how to
pave your way through the playoffs, look no further. Safety first!
