Posted on: February 8, 2008 10:14 am
 

Ok, here is the deal, every Friday I will post a new Blog in which we will choose the greatest player ever at a certain position. Untill the next position is posted CBS members may vote for who they think the greatest ever is, at the end of the voting I will calculate everyones votes and will add that player to The Greatest Team Ever. I hope lots of you participate because I think this could be fun. I will try to post a running tally in a comment every day.

Please start your post with the players name, and please make sure that you are naming someone who played the position being voted for that week, as those are the only votes that will count..........So who our Middle LInebacker?

Jack Lambert, most complete backer in the bunch. Not only did he have a boatload of tackles, he had plenty of sacks and interceptions on his resume.

My vote goes to RAY LEWIS.... Legal issues aside.....the man could have played in ANY of the decades, in all of the NFL's exhistance & been the tops in the game...  Most of the others were great in their own time, but could never play with todays athletes....  He has the Size, Speed of the game today w/ the Power & Tenacity to play in yesteryear...
