Alstott?

I understand the fascination with white running backs but one of the top 4 Bucs players/coaches ever? 

Please.

Alstott, Sapp, Lynch, Brooks.

We will be Carolina ready when we are Carolina ready.

Alstott, Sapp, Lynch, Brooks.

Wow.   No Selmon?

Selmon is a given.  1st player drafted.  1st HOF.  1st "Buccaneer Man".  A true gem on the field and off.

The Bucs Mount Rushmore is a no brainer - Selmon, Sapp, Brooks, Barber - ALL defense.  The way this franchise is remembered.

The only one of the four I listed (Selmon, Sapp, Brooks, Barber) that I think you can even question is Sapp, because he played for the Raiders, but that's just nitpickery and not remotely close to a good enough reason to exclude him. Those are the four Hall of Famers. I don't think anyone else is even close, save Lynch, but he's not synonymous with the Bucs like Ronde is.

There\'s a very real chance the Bucs waive [Revis] before next season. At the very least, it will be a discussion worth having.

This is what I think about the Glazers being cheap...

Selmon was a one-time AP All-Pro 1st team.  Great player, no doubt.  The tough choice for me was Lynch or Barber... and Barber sounds like he's still playing.

Selmon was three times 1st team All Pro, twice 2nd team All Pro.

Selmon, Brooks, Sapp, Nickerson.

In that order.

I think what Nickerson did to make us attractive to other free agents as well as what he did on the field goes beyond what Barber/Alstott/Lynch has done on the field so far

Well. I guess nearly everyone here will put Selmon, Sapp and Brooks as  three locks, with discussion about the fourth one! I'd take Monte, but thats only me.

Great call on Monte.

All 4 heads should be Darrelle Revis.

Already did that. Its called Easter island.

The Rapa nui people knew of his trade centuries in advance.

Naismith was right about Revis. Everyone else is a dummy.

Selmon was three times 1st team All Pro, twice 2nd team All Pro.

And he played on some HORRIBLE teams to start and end his career.  And he's a HOF.

Selmon is a NO BRAINER.

This is a joke, right?

Lynch over Selmon?

Here's your CORRECT Selmon stats:

6 Pro Bowl selection (1979, 1980, 1981, 1982, 1983, 1984)
3 First-team All-Pro selection (1979, 1980, 1982)
2 Second-team All-Pro selection (1978, 1984)
6 First-team All-NFC selection (1977, 1978, 1979, 1980, 1982, 1984)
1 Second-team All-NFC selection (1983)
NFL 1980s All-Decade Team
1979 NFL Defensive Player of the Year

Oh, and he's the first player in the Bucs Ring of Honor.  And was a staple in the Tampa community.

Selmon, Nickerson, Gruden, Brooks

Without Hardy's tutelage, we don't have that championship defense.

For me, its Selmon, Sapp, and Brooks for sure.  That last spot is really a tuffy! 

Nickerson, Lynch, Barber, & Gruden all have huge rolls in the history of this team.  I might even add John McKay, James Wilder, & Paul Gruber to that group in consideration for the 4th spot.

Because of the length of his career, I may have to give Barber the lead.
