    #27

    Does anyone else feel weird seeing a defensive back wearing #27?

    As a long-time fan, #27 has always been our power runner's number.

    Not that there's anything wrong with that number being on the other side of the ball--it's just sort of an aesthetic clash for me. (sort of like the backwards nike swoosh on the shoulders of the new jerseys).

    if you look back at the history of this team you will see that 27 is a rarely used number for whatever reason

    through the 50s, 60s, 70s, and 80s ....I can only think of maybe 4 DBs, a few random HBs who probably noone would remember if I named them because they only had a cup of coffee with the team , and of course WR Bob Grim who wore # 27

    so Herb Welch is really the first meaningful #27.....followed by of course Rodney Hampton, Ron Dayne, and Brandon Jacobs

    But we traded Bob Tucker to get Bob Grimm...he had to be good

    But honestly I can't really think of many either ...other than ones you mentioned...although i am sure there are a few
