Who was the best player in the Tedford Era? - 12-24-2012, 04:12 PM

Since the Dykes Era has officially begun, who was Tedford's best?

I'd say its between Desean, Marshawn, Rodgers, Keenan, Jahvid, Pre-Injury Longshore, Squid, Cam Jordan, Tyson Alualu, Follett, Mohammed, Arrington, McArthur, Jones, Bishop, Hawkins, Kendricks, Fujita, Hughes, Decoud, Mack, Anger, Mebane, Nnamdi, Vereen or Forsett.

I'm a little shocked and saddened that you failed to include Nick Harris.

My vote would be Rodgers, but you also left out Deltha O'Neal.

*Edit - My memory/timeline is not good, Harris and O'Neal were not Tedford guys. My bad.

On an overall impact per play basis, Brendan Bigelow.

This is like picking the best play and game from the JT era but I'll give all a shot.

Best players: Jahvid, Marshawn & Aaron

Best games: Tennessee at home, aTm in the Holiday Bowl and the victory against $C.

Best Plays: Lynch's TD run in the Big Game when he was a Freshman, Follett's hit on Ainge in the Tennessee game, Jahvid's TD run at fucla and DJax punt return against Tenn(although there are plenty of these to chose from)!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

With increased accomplishment comes increased humility.

My pick would be Jackson. No one took over a game like him at WR during the Tedford Era.

This guy...when you are almost unanimously voted the toughest and smartest SOB on the offensive line by your defensive peers, you are one bad a$$ dude.

Excellent choices, but I would like to add one more: DJax's punt return against Southern Branch in Memorial aided by a monster block from DeCoud.

It's a joke. The OP mentioned Fujita.

Fujita never experienced a Big Game win....thus, he wasn't part of the Teford era.
