Is our linebacker core the best in the league (combined LB's)

Willis = the best LB
Spikes - very good
Haralson - good
Lawson - good

No other team is on our level. Pitt is close, Balt close Bears farther behind

I dont think you can have the best "LB" he is the best MLB as Ware is the best OLB

Spikes isnt very good hes okay

Willis; Spikes; Lawson; Harolson; Brooks; McKillop


I would say overall we have the best LB corps in the NFL!!!
Top10 and maybe top 3 if they continue what there doing.

If Lawson continues to impress as he has and Brooks continues to make plays...yes

who are the other teams with better LB corps????
I went with "too early". Like others have said though, the potential is definitely there!

Ware is the best OLB


this is really debatable, he is the best pass rushing 3-4 OLB, he is basically a defensive end that stands up, he is really nothing special in coverage, and very very pedestrian in that area...

suggs is nearly as good rushing the passer and is FAR better in coverage...and then there are quite a few other OLB's in the league that are coverage aces in regards to linebackers in coverage..

my top total package OLB's in both the 3-4 and 4-3 would be..

Suggs
Briggs
Ware
Peterson

Lawson is now making a strong case to be 4-5 on this list with his instincts to the ball, coverage skills, and newly refreshed ability to also put pressure on the passer..

a one sided player doesnt create a complete player..

he's been more than okay, just because he isn't getting a lot of tackles doesn't mean he hasn't been very good, him and Willis have been great so far this year.
