FanPost

Steeler's all time linebackers.

After reading this fanpost and watching the great video, I started to wonder how everyone would rate the great Steelers Linebackers.

Not just for Stats or their career significance, but a snapshot of them at their best, which Steeler LB was the most dominant, or hardest to scheme against, or the best overall Linebacker this team has ever had.

Please put down your vote and what you see them as, for example:

I'm going with Andy Russel as a guy who covered everything, you schemed for his defensive teammates, but he was making plays all game long, taking away recievers, tackling in the back field, reading plays and cutting them off.  Andy Russel was the best all-around Linebacker in Steelers history.

I'll throw in a second and say Levon Kirkland for most underrated.  He was like Farrior, only he was bigger and would blow up FB's.  The man was great in coverage for a big guy, and he was always where he needed to be.

Disagree?  Have your own favorite?  Let us know.
