I remember Waters' case, even though it was over ten years ago. Sad.

Put in a decade with the Eagles and never played for anyone else. That's a short list of players.

I think he went to camp with KC and they cut him and he came back right?

Him, Waters, Byron and EA were my faves on those teams

True, that was his last season. Everything about this team fell apart so rapidly in ‘93.

people think he was just a thumper but that was only after he ripped his knee up before that he was an all around great safety who had a bunch of interceptions and was a big time play maker...even was a first team all pro one year

57?  Jesus Christ.  Just thinking of that defense gives me the shivers.  Travesty that group never won a championship.
