C'mon Mark! You can't write this article and not mention the man who started it all - Randy Moss at 6'4" - just because he entered the league one year before Winfield.

You didn't mention intelligence. Antoine is a smart and talented athlete. Smarts often is the difference. Plus he's a good guy. Future coach if he wants.

3 years into his career, can the Vikings honestly say they are proud they basically used a 1st round draft pick, on CB Chris Cook? Absolutely not. They guy shouldn't even be a starter in this league. He's been burnt each game this year already(including preseason), been lucky a few times too.

Winfield is smart and crafty. He clearly understands his limitations and how to overcome them. He has been one of the best, if not the best player on the Vikings defense over the last 10 years. It's been great having him as a Viking!

I loved what the tall CB in Seattle did against the Packers in this most recent Monday night game. No disrespect to Winfield or Robinson but I hope we draft a taller CB through the draft in the coming years.

height is definitely the most overrated aspect in all of sports. Megatron's height isn't what make him dominant. It's his leaping abiliy, combined with his hands and long arms.
