    I don't think top 10 really matters. There's Revis, and then the rest basically. Jonathon Joseph is great, Nnamdi is pretty good but quickly regressing, Brandon Carr is good too. But none of them compare to Revis in my opinion.

    Hopefully his knee heals correctly because as much as I dislike him, I do like watching him play

    Taking nothing else into consideration but coverage I'd say:

    Prime Time
    Night Train
    Mel Blount
    Rod Woodson
    Daryl Green
    Willie Brown
    Mike Haynes
    Herb Adderly
    Mel Renfro
    Jimmy Johnson

    Honorable mention: Champ Bailey.

    No specific order.

    Call me crazy and insane, but I think Champ has to be on that list for pure coverage sakes and even though his sample-size is smaller then those that you listed: Darrelle Revis flat out needs consideration.

    I know it might be crazy to consider, but both Bailey/Revis deserve to be on that list if we are talking purely coverage skills.

    Problem is, who would I take off, I'm leaning Renfro/Adderly, but I'm hesitant, although I do think Bailey/Revis deserve to have placement on that top 10 coverage CB list.

    Bailey yes I agree has a good case. Revis doesn't he hasn't been a shut down corner long enough.

    He maybe gets in the next 5-10 with Jack Butler, Lem Barney, Aeneaus Williams, Revis

    So he's like top 15ish off the top of my head.

    I have to agree with ebbs, Revis is getting there but not yet. The history of longevity at the CB position is insane and that puts him down.

    Good list. But, do you think that some of the guys within the last few decades are faster and more athletic than guys like Night Train or Mel Blount or the previous generation. Green and Deion Sanders just fly to the ball like they're freaks. In terms of speed and athletic ability, how do you think that list would go?

    Ok, let's just take the lifetime achievement out of the equation for a second and just look at these guys in their peak...even if it's just a few seasons, who are the best cover guys? I'm talking speed, sticking to a guy...getting interceptions. Sanders is obvious....but I'm pretty sure there were some other great cover corners that were/are pretty close to shutdown corners. If you had to defned that final play, which corners would you pick in ranking order to shut down that hot receiver?

    Who's the better cover guy between Revis, Champ and Daryl Green? Just curious if you were going to have a shutdown secondary, who would be on that squad.
