Eugene Robinson, Colgate

Yeah, a few years after leaving Seattle Eugene got in a bit of trouble with the law down in Miami before XXXIII (which also made this devout Christian look a tad hypocritical), but with the Seahawks #41 was nothing but class.

When I was 15, I actually met Robinson when he visited a church youth group I was only going to so I could meet girls (yeah, I know.. I'm hellbound). The dude talked football with us for hours, including dropping this tidbit: The QB he hated facing the most? Not Elway, Marino or Montana, but Jim Kelly. Even then, that surprised the hell out of me.

Robinson made it to two Pro Bowls wearing Blue & Green, and is the Seahawks all-time leader in tackles and takeaways (interceptions + fumbles recovered). Paired with Easley as he was in 1986, the Mudbones have the beginnings of an elite secondary.
