Best in Franchise History

I can't believe nobody has posted in this forum since mid-November, 2004. That was nearly three months ago. :-t

Just for the record, Selmon would be my choice for top honors. Six straight Pro Bowls and the only member of the Bucs franchise to be immortalized in Canton. Sadly, his career was cut way too short by a back injury suffered in 1984. Nonetheless, he's my pick for best Bucs player of all-time.

Brooks, easy. An impact defender... and a pivitol part of the defense. I am fully confident that without Derrick Brooks, there would be no Buccaneers heyday of 2002. Brooks is (especially back then) a top-tier LB... and one that makes OCs quiver.

Lee Roy followed closely by Brooks.

Although he missed six games due to injuries as a rookie, he was named the Bucs’ Rookie of the Year and the team’s Most Valuable Player. He battled injuries during two of his first three seasons, but starting in 1978 he was named first- or second-team All-Pro five times. He also was also All-NFC choice five times, and was named to six straight Pro Bowls from 1980 to 1985. With four sacks, he was co-Player of the Game in the 1982 Pro Bowl.

Four times the NFL Players Association named Lee Roy the NFC Defensive Lineman of the Year and he was a unanimous choice as NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 1979. Selmon was a major factor in the Bucs' first winning season, which was concluded with a 9-0 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in the 1979 NFC Championship Game. Lee Roy had 11 sacks and a career-best 117 tackles that year. He had three sacks in one game four times. A back injury, which forced him to miss the entire 1985 season, brought a premature end to his outstanding career.

Thanks deluxe! I can't take credit though. I ripped that off of some Hall of Fame website. ;-)

Selmon was the best, followed by Brooks....but if you are looking at it as relative to the position played then you have to consider Alstott.
