I would have thought this was clear but Rams fans are pushing me. 

 

Well, let's see.

 

Two amazing players for sure.

both are among the best I’ve ever seen. White and Taylor are the only two in their class in my opinion (out of the guys I’ve seen).

Don't get me wrong I love Donald. But there hasn't been a DLineman as dominant as a prime Watt other then The Minister of Defense himself.

People were calling Prime Watt a possible contender for the greatest football player of all time, and that was a pretty widespread opinion.

Donald. It's not a popular opinion, but I've watched them both play and I'm comfortable saying that. I don't even know that we've seen Donald's peak yet.

Watt

He really should have won MVP in 2012 over AD.

I don't know about that. Peterson had one of the GOAT seasons and essentially carried his team to the playoffs.* Not that Watt didn't also contribute greatly to a playoff berth, I just think Peterson was slightly more valuable that year.

I agree with this.

If we were just going on pass rush alone, I'd say it's close. Donald getting sacks from the inside is probably slightly more valuable than Watt getting sacks from the edge, interior pass rushers being a harder thing to find than edge guys.

However, it's not just pass rush, Watt in his prime racked so many passes defensed you'd think you were looking at a cornerback's stat column. And I believe he had 40 TFL's in a year when the next closest player had like 20.

Watt, not close. And that's not me trying to take anything away from Donald who is a fantastic player.

Prime Watt. No disrespect to Donald, but Prime Watt was like nothing I've seen before on a football field. He was a rare player, a non-QB who elevated his entire unit.

Donald is better inside, Watt is better outside, both can switch positions. Depends what you want.

If You need to attack the inside and swallow up the run generating pressure upfront, I am taking Donald all the way,

If you need to stop outside plays and get a dominate outside Pass rush, I am taking Watt all the way.

Same thing could be said for Donald this year.

Why not enjoy both. Why does one have to be better than the other. We’re witnessing greatness at a record breaking pace.
