    Have a look at the MLS Defender of the Year results over time.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MLS_De...the_Year_Award

    Notice anything?

    It's not that Morrow is the only TFC name on this list, although that is impressive.

    Every single name is a CB except one. Justin Morrow finished second as an LB in 2017.

    In terms of amazing things that got lost in the shuffle, that is right up there.

    Morrow is the best TFC defender ever.

    If the question is, who was the best TFC in the world based on peak level at another club, that is van der Wiel by a mile.

    Steven Caldwell needs to be on there. He was the first one to really stabilize our defense and was Captain for a reason. I would put him before Perquis.

    No way was VDW better than Serioux. No way.

    I forgot about Caldwell - and I conceded to the Serioux > GvW argument

    Updated my list accordingly.

    I would have O'Dea around 6th or 7th. Better than Perquis/Ciman/Dunivant (just based on play here)

    I always thought he was less effective than he looked - whereas some of the others were more effective than they lookd. He looked very good, but the goals still seemed to go in.

    Not going to lie - I may have unintentionally put Dunivant as high as I did based on his rep with LA.

    I feel like Perquis was more stable in the back than O'Dea.

    O'Dea was tough and vocal. He was definitely a good leader for the time, but as someone else mentioned - the goals his back line let in were stinkers at times. And things did look more unorganized Under O'Dea compared to Perquis time. Mind you, the players in front of Perquis were better.

    3. Chris Mavinga

    Todd Dunivant was a solid LB for TFC, except he played one season and then was gone for a season then MoJo traded him for some allocation money. One of more terrible trades MoJo made. His quality showed when he won 5 MLS Cups, 2 Supporters Shield, 1 MLS Best 11, 1 US Open Cup
