Top Linebackers
 
There seems to be a list about every other position except linebackers. They get little love on here but yet they do so much. Who do you have as your top linebackers in the game today?

1. DeMarcus Ware
2. Ray Lewis
3. Patrick Willis
4. London Fletcher
5. Shawne Merriman
6. Brian Urlacher
7. Demeco Ryans
8. David Harris
9. Derrick Brooks
10. Derrick Johnson

I really wanted to find a place up here for Vilma, Harrison, Ruud, Suggs, and maybe, just maybe I thought about Porter for a second. So what. :)

Judge by linebacker as a position, intangibles, changing the game plan kind of guys. Don't just go by stats because this position is much more. Example: D'Qwell Jackson leads the league in tackles and wont even see a list, hopefully.

These lists tend to be controversial and try not to be a homer if at all possible. :D

1. LaMarr Woodley
2. David Harris
3. No one cares.

nice love for london fletcher

I really don't think you can include all linebackers in this. It is really hard to compare what Shawne Merriman does with somebody like Patrick Willis.

d34ng3l021 11-05-2008 10:33 PM

Well you have 3-4 OLBs (of which there are 2 kinds, but I dont think anyone cares to make the distinction here), 3-4 ILB (of which there are 2 kinds), 4-3 (of which there are 2 kinds), and a 4-3 MLB.

Can't really compare all of them at once cause they all have different roles.

Jon Beason ahead of Demeco? The homer in me also says Ruud should be a little higher. I thinjk Cover 2 MLB's are much more valuable and is a harder position to play.

Glad to see Derrick Johnson getting some love!

the suspended/banned iloxy: No Curtis Lofton? What kind of list is that? Tool.

Is it my birthday?

James Harrison is one of my favorite players to watch.

d34ng3l021 11-05-2008 11:05 PM

Me and my sources has found out we are unable to give rep that iloxy deserves so much.

We are continuing to investigate.

Rayray52 11-05-2008 11:09 PM

Lofa Tatupu is a great linebacker he has amazing insticts and a nose for the ball but his athletisicm is only average which really subtracts from his cover skills and his ability to run down ballcarriers having said that hes still a top 10 maybe top 5 linebacker but cant be considered elite.

Dude Antonio Pierce at 3? Even Giants fans think he's a fat 2 down backer.

BlindSite 11-05-2008 11:49 PM

I have a serious man love hard on for Pierce,

Really? No LaMarr Woodley in your top 10 OLB? Seriously?

A.J Hawk has been a disappointment as a pro.

MetSox17 11-06-2008 12:01 AM

Joey Porter is playing better than him right now, and not even he is on my top ten list. That's not a knock on either player, but i think the guys i listed are reaally damn good.

Sniper 11-06-2008 12:03 AM

You have Bart Scott in your top 10 ILB/MLB. WTF?
