When you think of middle linebackers you think of legends of the game.

 

Mike Singletary

Ray Nitchke

Jack Lambert

Dick Butkus

I grew up watching Singletary and Lambert and only watching hilites of Butkus and Nitchke.

So the winner is.................................

..............Butkus, he was a BAD ASS!!!!

I have to give the nod to Butkus.  Two names that should be honorable mention are Joe Schmidt and Sam Huff. These two guys created the position way back when. I can remember two very different Butkus plays at Detroit. On the first one, Butkus had Altee Taylor lined up for a pounding along the sideline. Well, Altee, being a reasonably bright guy, ran out of bounds. Butkus was still in hot pursuit  so Taylor head for the stands. Dick finally gave up the chase at about the tenth row.

A few years later, again in Detroit. Butkus was on the field when a Lions receiver collapsed on his way back from a fly pattern. Butkus was the first to notice and started  jumping up and down, waving his arms and screaming at the Detroit bench to get the guy help. Unfortunately, Chuck Hughes had suffered a heart attack. They got his heart started right there on the field but he died enroute to the hospital. I had never seen Dick Butkus do anything to help an opposing player in any way up til that day. But I acme away from that game with a much better understanding of what kind of a person Dick Butkus really was.
