Who is the greatest Linebacker to ever play in the NFL?


Although my opinion may be a little biased, being a die hard Bears fan since 1975, Dick Butkus was the greatest linebacker to ever put on an NFL uniform. I give props to Lawrence Taylor, Jack Lambert, Ray Nitschke, and Ray Lewis, but in my opinion Butkus was the best. Who's your all time favorite?

    I do love Mike Singletary as well mgeorge, but the Monsters of the midway defense that Singletary anchored was so good as a whole, it's hard to say how good he really was.

    Chris Spielman was a good LB, he was just on some horrible Lions defenses

    Tatum brought the wood - that hit between him and Earl Campbell was incredible. He was a safety though, and Mad Dog Curtis has to be on the most feared safety list as well. And if we're talking DBs, then we have to mention Night Train Lane...

    Junior Seau is definitely a top ten LB
