Some members of the New England Patriots defense had a busy day on Twitter. Shortly after linebacker Kyle Van Noy called out a Fox Sports Twitter poll for excluding the Patriots' secondary from the best secondaries in the league, Stephon Gilmore made some noise on a Twitter poll of his own.
Gilmore retweeted a poll from the Good Morning Football Twitter account. The poll was about the league's best corner (Gilmore was included) and Gilmore coyly offered his thoughts about the debate.

While Gilmore may have "no comment," it's clear what he thinks the answer is. And he definitely has a case.
Gilmore is coming off a great season in which he posted two picks, 20 pass defenses, 45 tackles, and his first career sack. He also had a solid postseason and logged two interceptions. He helped to shut down one side of the field and the 28-year-old is certainly in the prime of his career.
Regardless of the results of this poll, Gilmore is certainly one of the league's best cornerbacks (if not, the best).
