Oh boy! It's that time again.

A debate that has been raging for years in the AFC North blog will finally be settled once and for all with ESPN.com's positional Power Rankings. Next week we will rank the NFL's best safeties, and it will surely be a two-horse race at the top between Ed Reed of the Baltimore Ravens and Troy Polamalu of the Pittsburgh Steelers.

But today we want to hear from you on the infamous "Troy Reed" debate. Using our SportsNation poll, who do you believe is the NFL's best safety?

Reed led the league with eight interceptions in 2010 and made his seventh Pro Bowl. What is amazing is Reed accomplished the feat in just 10 games.

Polamalu is the reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year. He recorded 63 tackles and seven interceptions, which included several clutch plays to close out games.

Both players are tremendous and potential Hall of Famers. So cast your vote on the best safety and share your comments below. We will have ESPN.com's full rankings next week.
