    I actually don't mind the list. If I could substitute players on the list it would be:

    Jack Ham over Lambert
    Ray Nitschke over Chuck Bednarik

      I agree w/ the list. These things usually turn into a big homer fest. Also considering probably no one on here has lived through the times of all the players I think its fine.

              I think Jack Ham deserves Mention... atleast over Derrick Brooks.

              Ham was the Derrick Brooks of the 70's and was amazing. People remember Lambert for his gritty attitude and crazy play but fail to realize how amazing Ham was.

              Yeah, I play WoW too.[/CENTER]

                  I'm too young to have seen most of those guys. When I was little Lawrence Taylor was at the end of his career. I knew he was a feared dude, but I didn't get to see it ya know. That being said I'd give my right arm to have seen Ray Lewis in his prime play with a star on his helmet. He was beyond a beast. Notice how he's never really been on a bad defense. It's because the guy is like a coach out there. You can't be on Ray Lewis' defense and play soft.

                  Derrick Brooks and Junior Seau were beastly too. I'm glad to be able to have seen them play first hand. I have a feeling I'll be saying the same thing about DeMarcus Ware, Urlacher, Patrick Willis, and Shawne Merriman if the injury doesn't hold him back.

                    Move Ray down a few slots and I would agree.

                      Butkus should be #1. I love Lawrence Taylor but Butkus was THE LB of the NFL imo.

                        Zach Thomas could be on there too. He actually has been playing as long as Lewis and has even more tackles, although his sack/INT numbers aren't as good.

You can go either way, but it's hard to justify saying one ranks well above the other. They're a package deal.

                          I'm also not a fan of Junior Seau. I don't think he should be on the list.
                          I'm not a fan of your face! :) Seriously though, I'm not convinced you actually saw him play in his prime.

                            Another way to show how important Ray is is that he had 2 seasons when he missed a lot of games 2002 and 2005 we sucked and had horrible records.

                              Ham isn't on the list, Lambert is though.
