The **** are you smoking? You really expect a defense to play perfectly to where corners never have to tackle? What kind of dream world do you live in? It's just highly, highly unrealistic to say something crazy like that.

If we had a nation wide poll of who the greatest CB of all time was I am betting Deion (the poor tackler) would win said poll...why? because coverage skills are THAT much more important for a CB in comparsion for tackling.

Even if that were true, the **** does that prove? He might win, but it would be because he's probably the most known CB to ever play the game. Ask an average fan to name the 5 best CBs ever and I wouldn't be surprised if they name all/mostly recent players.
