Defensive End Candidates for the All-Time Team

For some reason this slipped my mind, but the Ti-Cats have unveiled the second position group for fans to vote on for the all-time team. The quarterbacks were revealed last week; this week, it is the defensive ends.

Seven players are up for two spots on the team, and while all seven are great players, the two that will make it are likely to be no-brainers. All due respect to Tim Cofield, Billy Ray Locklin, Vince Mazza, Tim Cheatwood and Pete Neumann, but the two that will be named to the team are Joe Montford and Grover Covington.

Simply put, they are two of the greatest pass rushers in CFL, not just Tiger-Cat, history. Covington still holds the league record for sacks in a career, while Montford was a three-time winner of the Most Outstanding Defensive Player award and holds the team records for sacks in a season with 26.

When I think of defensive ends for the Ti-Cats, the first two names that come to mind are Covington and Montford. They are the two most identifiable pass rushers in Tiger-Cat history and they are the two players who will receive my votes for the all-time team.

  1. Pretty much a no brainer.

    For DTs my selections are Barrow and Mosca.

    I know they have voting, but some positions, like the whole d line, safety, and kicker that you won't even need a vote.

    It's interesting to let the fans vote but at the end of the day, it's really a popularity contest as fans remember the players that were with the Cats the longest or made the biggest impact.
