Apologies for the delay, but we're back to finish up the corners and safeties. Here is the team so far:

Offense
QB: Steve McNair
RB: Earl Campbell and Eddie George
WR: Charley Hennigan and Derrick Mason
OT: Bruce Matthews and Brad Hopkins
OG: Mike Munchak and Bob Talamini
C: Mark Stepnoski
TE: Frank Wycheck


Defense
DT: Curley Culp and Ray Childress

DE: Elvin Bethea and Jevon Kearse
LB: Robert Brazile, Gregg Bingham and Keith Bulluck

Here are the nominees for cornerback:

Tony Banfield: Banfield played just five seasons with the Oilers (1960 - 1965) but was named to the AFL All-Star team three times. He accumulated 27 INT's in just five seasons and recorded a career high 8 picks in 1961.

Willie Alexander: Drafted in the 6th round from Alcorn State (Steve McNair's alma mater) in 1971, Banfield starred at corner for the Oilers for 9 years. He averaged 2.55 INT's per year, but was always matched against the opposition's best receiver. He was a key piece in taking an Oilers team that finished 1-13 two years in a row back to the playoffs.

Cris Dishman: Dishman was drafted out of Purdue University in 1988 and played nine seasons with the Oilers. He recorded 31 INT's and earned a reputation for a trash talker that almost always backed it up on the field. He made the Pro Bowl in 1991.

Samari Rolle: Rolle was taken in the 2nd round of the 1998 NFL Draft out of Florida State. He recorded 23 INT's in his seven years as a Titan before leaving for Baltimore in FA before the 2005 season. He went to one Pro Bowl as a Titan in 2000.

I gotta go Alexander Dishman on this one. These two guys were studs. I remember when the Oilers were playing Pittsburgh and the Steeler QB at the time threw an out pattern that his receiver caught, turned around and Dish stole ran into him face first, stole the ball and scored a TD all in one motion.

I went with Banfield and Rolle.

Tony Banfield played 5 seasons with the Oilers and recorded 5.4 INTs a season. That's pretty impressive. Not to mention being named to the AFL All-Star team 3 out of 5 seasons.

Samari Rolle, well what can I say, is the best Oilers/Titans CB that I witnessed play. If not for his injury bug a few years back, he could have accumulated better numbers than what he did. Rolle is a very good CB and is one that I can remember play, so I picked him along with Banfield.
