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.

While Butkus, Lambert and Singletary are probably the best of all time, one more that certainly merits an honorable mention is SAM HUFF.  His one-on-one battles with Jim Brown were legendary. 

Maybe you ought to consider going to a 3 -4 defense so at least two of these guys make your squad.

Jack Lambert, he put the fear of God in every QB.

i will submit my vote for Dick Butkis. He is the last person i want chasing me down. It was a hard decision between him and Ray Nitchke.

LT... not a middle linebacker.

Beast from the edge... not a middle linebacker.

Dick Butkis, hands down. Lambert was great but he had Hall of Famers all around him. Butkis, was a one man wrecking crew.
