On profootball-reference.com, they have a formula devised by a professor from Marquette that ranks the top 1,500 players of all-time. It's a head-to-head thing done by the fans, using a complex formula where points go up if they win the battle, down if they lose.
Why is this relevant to us? Last I checked, Derrick Brooks was ranked TENTH among all NFL defensive players all-time.
Warren Sapp was ranked 38th on this list and Ronde Barber is ranked 83rd. Not too bad considering we're such a small-market team.

Lee Roy Selmon incredibly is only 75th. But John Lynch is 111th.

Very cool Jerz...  Nice find.

Curiousif the professor's formula acounts for market size, or is that just your .02 cents worth...?

The list is bogus then.

How would you rank the Bucs on that list? Me:

1. Selmon
2. Sapp
3. Brooks
4. Barber
5. Lynch

Flip Brooks and Sapp, then flip Barber and Lynch, and that list is perfect.

One could make a case for Brooks over Sapp (I won't), but I can't see Lynch over Ronde.

Brooks is by far the best player in franchise history, and has become somewhat underrated. I can't name too many players with his combination of play recognition, speed, and tackling ability.

Sapp was more important to the defense than Brooks.

That was a special defense.

And Simeon Rice was the best player on it, by a mile.
