All of those guys are exceptional but I would have to say Ray Ray himself.

he is still a great player but what he was 6 or 7 years ago was generally freakish.

It will be A LONG time until we see another player like him. Defined the position and made teams redesign their offense due to his being there.

Butkus is the man. Look in the dictionary, his picture is under linebacker and besides, wasn't he on Bubba's show?

Ray Ray isn't even a good MLB. He is nothing more than an OLB that plays on the inside. The job of an MLB is to stop plays coming up the middle. Ray Ray has proven time and again he can't do that. Just ask Brandon Jacobs. Which is why Ray insists on having major beef in front of him. Without that, he is ineffective.
