wild and crazy comp but at the same time not out and out looney either.

C impacts the game due to less players on the field overall. That being said, if the offense isn't committing like 3 players to AD at all times, he's gonna wreck your gameplan.

Came here to say this. Rudy's a really nice player. Donald will probably end his career as the greatest lineman ever, and the best defender of the 21st century at the minimum

Rudy will probably end his career as the best defensive player of his generation and perhaps the greatest of All Time. It's a solid comparison.

You don't even know who Aaron Donald is, yet you're ready to offer your commentary on the versatility of NFL players? Please spare us any further football related opinions.


How many touchdowns a season does he average?

I have no idea who the second guy is but Rudy is proving in this postseason how ridiculously ignorant are his doubters.

I think Gobert can easily finish his career as one of the 10 best defenders of all time. His positioning on defense is on par or even better than prime Marc Gasol, and he blocks shots like Hakeem. The Jazz have built their team defense around Gobert's individual brilliance for years now, leading to them always being one of the top defenses in the league. Since he excels as both an individual and team defender, it isn't far-fetched to say he could be a top 10 defender of all time.

But he is :crazy:

KG is at the very least one of the 5 best defenders ever, especially in his prime. His versatility in guarding any position is only second to how well he always quarterbacks the team's entire defense. I watched him for years even before he came to the Celtics, and he was that good. His only weakness defensively was guarding heftier players in the post, but that's understandable given his frame.

This isn't a knock on Gobert, he could surpass KG when all is said and done. I just find the recent crop of "KG is overrated" posts these past few weeks really annoying.

Best defensive tackle in the Nfl. 3x Dpoy


The NFL has a DPOY? Wow, learn something new everyday. Still no idea who that is.

Well, this is certainly debatable.
