He locked guys down in the desert for a decade and was still an upper echelon CB in his twilight years with the Rams.
He retired with 55 career INTs and returned 9 of them for TDs, which is good for 4th All-Time. 8 Time Pro-Bowler and 3 Time All-Pro, he's got the credentials to get in and seeing he was a finalist the past 2 seasons it should only be a matter of time.
He was better than any of them from what I've seen.
Especially Rod Woodson, who was burned all the time. Playmaker, sure...but he was no shutdown corner, even relative to how the term is usually used.
Darrell Green could cover anyone but he was too short, and bigger receivers definitely took advantage of that.
Deion was beatable on some routes, but there were certain routes you just couldn't run on him at all.
