probably the most intimidating mlb of all time, pound for pound the baddest of the bad , the 1 and only Jack Lambert, hit you like a runaway train and could cover the pass like a safety. No one did it better

When I started watching football I caught the end of Jack Lambert.  My choice would be Ray Lewis, a very close second would be Mike Singletary

Nick Biouniconti of the Killer B's, but as my number 1 choice

Dick Butkus

With a name like that, he had to be scary!

#1 Dick Butkus

Butkus is the standard by which all others are judged. The
hardest hitting, most feared defender ever!!!!!!!!
Other elites worthy of consideration:
#2   Willie Lanier
#3   Mike Singletary
#4   Chuck Bednarik
#5   Jack Lambert
#6   Ray Nitschke
#7   Sam Huff
#8   Ray Lewis
#9   Harry Carson
#10 Joe Schmidt

HM: Nick Buoniconti, Lee Roy Jordan, Tommy Nobis


This is a re-post from earlier in the voting to perhaps rekindle some memories.

Willie Lanier with ZERO VOTES...ARE YOU KIDDING ME???!!!

FYI, Seau is not a middle linebacker

I think that I'm going to have to go with Dick Butkus.  The others were great, but something about Dick was special.  You just knew you were in for a good time when you watched him play.
