If you missed it on Thursday (or if you didn’t), NBCSN’s Pro Football Talk will unveil on Monday the Prime Numbers series, a look at the best players in NFL history to wear every jersey number, from 1 to 99 plus 00.

Voting is open (and plenty of you have voted) on the best players who have worn No. 81.  Voting is now open on No. 54.

The No. 81 debate happens on Monday’s show.  The No. 54 debate also unfolds on Monday.

So cast your vote for the three players you believe best represented No. 54, and we’ll represent the collective answers come Monday at 5:30 p.m. ET.

    No Bruschi? No Vote.

    Whoever doesn’t vote for Randy White doesn’t know the game of football.

    I hate the Pats, but I still really liked Bruschi. But get real, he’s no Brian Urlacher.

    Jeremiah Trotter.

    Tedy Bruschi was the “heart and soul” of 5 teams that played in the SuperBowl and he doesnt even get on the list? (Note, I do realize he was a rookie in the first SB, but he did have a huge impact on the game with sacks). How many players on your list appeared in 5 Super Bowls?

    Fred McNeil.

    Where’s Bru?

    Bruschi was lucky to be on the right team at the right time. He was good and all, but Pats fans grossly overrate him.

    You will be adding Lavonte David to that list in a decade.

    I can tell how young the voters are when they didn’t vote for Howley. Howley was better than Thomas and Spielman.

    Howley wsa my second choice after White… then Urlacher. It was pretty cut and dried…. but Spielman????????? Seriously? A two down run-stuffer that never played on an excellent defense?

    In a few years there’s a good chance Lavonte David of the Bucs will be in consideration.

    Brian Waters

    I agree I have to go with Randy White.

    I’m a Pats fan and disappointed Bruschi wasn’t nominated, but he’s not really in that class.

    Brian Waters on the other hand….is very much im that class. Warren Sapp said he’s the hardest o-lineman he ever played against.

    Chuck Howley and my older bro wore 54. I don’t see my older brother’s name up here, so my vote is for Howley. Darn, my bro was a two-way linebacker and long snapper too.

    It has to be Randy White although Urlicher was a good pro!

  18. indywilson40 says: Jun 4, 2014 12:17 PM

    Jeff Herrod.

  19. durskichiro says: Jun 14, 2014 11:42 PM

    My top all time #54s:

    1 Urlacher
    2 Randy White
    3 Howley
    4 Thomas
    5 Waters
    6 Spielman
