Easy for me. Krause was a stud, but his body of work from Minnesota got him into the Hall. He probably would have had the same results as a Redskin, but he played the majority of his career in Minnesota. Couldn't vote for him to start.

Kenny Houston is a no brainer.

Sean Taylor had numbers that were on par with kenny Houston's Redskin numbers... in four less years.

Sean Taylor and Ken Houston got my votes.

Krause and Houston.

Houston was the absolute no brainer.

I know people are going to put Sean Taylor ahead of Krause mostly because of potential and the fact that he was not allowed to reach that full potential because he was murdered, but divorcing sentiment and of course the bias that these polls tend to have for recent players, in terms of production as a Redskin, Krause (though more known for his time in Minnesota) was more productive than Taylor. Playing the same number of seasons and Krause playing one fewer game, he had 28 picks to Taylor's 12. Hell Krause had that many his rookie year and record that still stands today.

Houston is obvious.

While Taylor will be an overwhelming sentimental favorite, he will always fall into the "what if" category.

As KDawg stated, Krause was a stud, but mainly as a Viking.

I went with Brig Owens.

I agree 200 percent. Taylor and Houston it is.

Ok.

Hall of Famer Kenny Houston is the only strong safety of the group. He gets pick one. (that Monday night Dallas game helps)

The other choice was tough. Brig Owens was a favorite growing up, had all those picks and played both free and strong saftey.

Krause is in the Hall.

But it's ST's jersey I wear on Sundays.

So. in the only one of these I had to think about, I ended up voting with everyone else.
