The Top Ten

1 Troy Polamalu Troy Polamalu Troy Aumua Polamalu is a former American football strong safety who played his entire twelve-year career for the Pittsburgh Steelers of the National Football League.

Hey! Whoa there! Polamalu may have worse records than Ed Reed but has anyone seen the interception he did against the Chargers?! Ed Reed got traded to the Texans in 2013 and then got traded again to the Jets. Troy Polamalu is obviously the better of the two.

# 1. He can catch anything and he is a better playmaker than anyone in the NFL or DA Bomb!

The Steelers have a top 3 defense with him, but it's below average without him, proven by the 2009 season.

Troy better than Ed Reed

2 Ed Reed

The best ever, even though injuries have slowed his career and physicality in the game. Ed reed changed the game, and made the defense into an offensive assault.

Polamalu is amazing but Reed is obviously the better out of the two. - schaf1492

He is thr biggest ball hawk in the NFL - gocanes52

Where is ronnie lott how come he's not here

3 Ronnie Lott

How isn't he on this list. He is the definition of a hard hitting safety

Best safety ever including he was the minister of the 49ers defense

How is he not number 1 what even is this?

He changed how SS should cover and blitz.

5 Steve Atwater Steve Atwater Stephen Dennis Atwater nicknamed "Smiling Assassin" is a former American football player who spent most of his career playing free safety for the Denver Broncos.

Such a hard hitting safety he once knocked himself out because he hit an opponent so hard. The guy is so tough.

6 Bob Sanders

Bob Sanders is a beast

He should be #3

Small but mighty

Running backs watch out for Sanders

7 Sean Taylor

He was on the right path to become a superstar, but then he was murdered.

His death still haunts me to this day.

He would have been a top 2 safety. May Sean Taylor Rest In Peace. I'm a cowboys fan

His hits were out of this world it's sent players across the field

"The Meast"... Defenetly would of been #1 if he was still here with us. HAIL TO THE REDSKINS!
