    Greg Lloyd, Joey Porter, Jack Lambert, or James Harrison

    That's quite an epic list of linebackers is it not? The tradition that really started with Jack Lambert from the dynasty era of the 70's, with his take not Sh*t attitude and has continued with great names such as the ones mentioned above over the decades. The tradition of Steeler linebackers is great, not only with names like that but of course with guys like Jack Ham, Mike Merriweather, Earl Holmes, Jason Gildon, Kevin Greene, Levon Kirkland, Chad Brown , James Farrior, Lamarr Woodley just to name a few. For the sake of this conversation though, lets focus on the most intimidating intimidators in the group.

    So given the choice, of each player in their prime, who's your pick to have leading your defense into the field of battle on Sunday afternoon? It might not be as easy a question to answer as you think...

    Harrison isn't really a leader, he's just one tough SOB.

    I'd take Lambert, even though in today's game he'd be fined every game.

    Leader I guess is relative term. Someone who is your emotional spearhead, the guy that makes the big play when you need it, the beast of all beasts from a linebacker standpoint.

    You mean Chad Brown not Chad "Toast" Scott...lol

    I don't think anybody was nastier or more mean then Greg Lloyd....I can't comment on Lambert since I didn't seen him play........I think Porter was great at pumping up his teammates and really that is why he was so mouthy....lol James Harrison is more like Lloyd and really has shown to be the better player.....But knee injuries robbed Lloyd of so much...I would have loved to seen him play without multiple knee injuries.....I love all three and really would be happy with either them starting at LB for me......

    Lambert had an advantage over the other 3 in that he played the middle. He was all over the field and was always in on the play. You can't go wrong picking any of the four but I'm going old school with Lambert, he helped inspire my love of the STEELERS !!

    The game has changed so much from each of these badasses over the years, so I can not take one over the other. I remember watching Lambert play when I was a kid. I was then spoiled with Lloyd and the others, and then I came to expect that every LB that came to the Burgh was suppose to play great...which they have, so the only answer that I can give and actually think that all the addicts will believe, is that it's the organization and coaching! Am I wrong?
