Pretty good list. I would've put Eric Barton on that list ahead of guys that were on the team during the struggle era. However, we've let lots of good LBs get away and not replace them. It's just hard to say what could've been from 2003-2009 because I think the biggest problem was coaching above everything.

I agree 100% that Eric Barton should be on that list. My list would be
10. Tom Howard...We really missed his pass coverage skills and Groves didn't cut it
9. Eric Barton...Had a nose for the ball carrier and was worth more than his pay and we haven't had another like him since
8. Grady Jackson...was let go after All-Pro Darrell Russell was suspended and we sure could've used him
7. Steve Beaurline...could've been a franchise QB for us
6. Tory James...His depth was quite valuable
5. La'Roi Glover...Imagine if we had kept him to team with McGlockton in the middle of the D
4. Danny Clark...since letting this versitle LB go we've been hurting for quality performance ever since
3. Greg Biekert...His leadership was more valuable than we thought after we cut him out of camp in 2002
2. Rod Coleman...One man show and we didn't have that kind of force in the middle after that
1. Charles Woodson...We should've paid the man but he had to fake the turf toe or at least I think he did.

Oh one more...Marcus Allen. That was very ignorant of Al Davis to not let him play. Imagine what he could've done in those years after Bo jackson was gone
