Disagree. Some of the great defenses in recent history had a great secondary or a great defender. The Jets D was great last season because of Revis. The Pats of a few years ago had a great D because of Ty Law. Those two players were able to shut down the opponent's best player. The Ravens and their great D had both Reed and McAllister in their secondary and even though he isn't a CB Polamalu makes the Steelers go.
