He was loud, brash and went by the name of Prime Time. He made no apologies for his brashness, he was a two sport star like Bo Jackson but unlike Bo Jackson he was really only good and great at one sport…football. Deon Sanders played Baseball for the New York Yankees and the Atlanta Braves but was better known as the lockdown corner on sundays for the Atlanta Falcons, the San Francisco 49ers and the Dallas Cowboys.Sanders was not no way as physical like a Ronnie Lott but quarterbacks knew not to throw in his direction or the famed cornerback would intercept the pass and run it back for a score.

I never was a Deion Sanders fan. I think I’m too old school to have liked someone who showboated most of the time although he had some amazing talent. Chad Johnson and Terrele Owens fall into that same category. Strange thing Jerry is that I didn’t like their brashness but was addicted to them anyway…
I tried to seperate the brashness with his sheer covercorner skills like a Darrelle Revis with out the prime time stuff
Oh, I know. And he was one hell of a talented dude. No question!
