    I can't believe Top 3 is an option. And has 2 votes.

          I voted Top 20. He was a very good linebacker

            If we're talking all LB positions, its easily top 20 and not even close to top 5. If we're talking about the Will Position or the OLB position for that matter, you can make an argument for top 10.

            By the way Tatum was the best Cover 2 (I say that loosely because the Steelers Cover 2 is a little different from todays Cover 2) Will, not Derrick Brooks.

                You really can't ask these all-time questions on here because most people don't remember football pre-1990. The best you can hope for is in the last 15-20 years.

                      What ever happened to GermaineRace? He was pretty good with old school players. I miss owning him in every debate we had.

                        I still say Jack Ham is the prototype WLB for a Cover 2 defense.

                        Really, the only difference between the Cover 2 schemes of the 70s and now is that today you have the Tampa wrinkle, where they drop the MLB into the deep third, making it a Cover 3.

                          Ham, thats what I meant. Oops, did I say Tatum? He's a safety. I meant Ham.

                              Agreed. He was one of my favorite posters.
