Ronnie Lott v Deion Sanders - Who's Best?

I wrote a blog on the Top 5 Defensive NFL Players of all time recently, listing Prime 5th, narrowly edging Lott.  A community member disagreed, which made me wonder what everyone else thinks.  So, let's here it....who's the better all time defensive player, Ronnie Lott or Deion Sanders??

My vote is for Prime Time!  True he was absent vs the run, but his presence on the field LITERALLY forced some teams to play on only the other half -- they wouldn't even dare try him!  Lott was an absolute beast, hitting harder than anyone I've ever seen....and it's hard to think someone may have been better -- but to me, Prime is it!
