That was a special defense.

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

Who got defensive MVP that year? I think it's a little stretch to say he was the best player on it by a MILE. The defense was all around great. I don't know if there has ever been a defense like that, that had so many great players in their prime at the same time. You can make a case that 5 players on that defense deserve to be in the hall of fame.

Lee Roy Selmon incredibly is only 75th.

The list is bogus then.
The list IS bogus as a ranking of "all time" players because it's based on fans ratings. Fans are diverse in age and younger ones have only statistical information to develop their opinions about the great players of past generations. This would skew the rankings to favor the younger, or more recent players.

For the Bucs, there's no doubt the list goes; Selmon, Brooks, Sapp...
