KC Joyner on Dawkins and D-Line

you'd think this guy was an eagles fan. from an espn chat:
Jeremy (nyc): Who is the best overall safety in the league? Sean Taylor? Ed Reed? Brian Dawkins? Roy Williams?? Someone else...???

SportsNation KC Joyner: Tough call with mixing FS and SS. I happen to think Dawkins is the best FS and Williams the best SS. Dawkins metrics were down a bit last year but not as much as his fellow secondary members. Williams is an absolute force against the run, which is usually more important for a SS than how he covers.

Chuck (Hershey, PA): KC,is it just me or does the Eagles D-Line look real scary?

SportsNation KC Joyner: I really like the Philly D line. Mike Patterson had tremendous metrics last year. Trent Cole has excellent pass rushing skills. Sam Rayburn is one of the best backup DTs in the NFL. Add these three to Jevon Kearse, and possibly Darren Howard if he can pick his game up, and this could be a dominant D line.
