    He might not have been great,but this kid put it all on the line for us.........played with a ton of injuries....plus some memorable kick returns(109yds?)........He was a warrior and will always have my respect:rocker:

    BTW......Ellis didn't call that blitz against Manning in "The Game that shall not be mentioned",leaving him on an island against 6ft.4in.,Plaxico Burress.

    No kidding, few things on this board are more aggravating than the hate that Hobbs gets on this board. It's not his fault that he was our best CB despite not being #1 CB-caliber. Blame the front office for that, because he never left anything on the field, and it's not his fault that he just fundamentally had some limitations as a player.

    I feel real bad for Ellis. I never thought he was a starting corner talent, but he always played hard and he played hurt. I think he would have made a solid career as a nickel, spot starter at C and kick returner, though.
