    Merriman is not the best LB in the NFL, he's simply a good pass rusher.
    I would take Demarcus Ware over Merriman anyway (for what they do).
    Merriman wasn't so great when he was getting undressed by AD last year.

    What a bad list, there are a lot of good LBs (EJ Henderson, Kirk Morrison, Antonio Pierce etc.) aren't there.
    Guys like Tatupu, Willis, Demeco Ryans are too low.
    Players like Adalius Thomas, Merriman, Peterson, Suggs etc. are all too high.
    And players like Bart Scott, Mike Vrabel, Mike Boley, AJ Hawk etc. shouldn't even be there.
    Good calls, Italian!
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE

    great point..if he was playing in a 4-3, he would be a defensive end
    People who see life as anything more than pure entertainment are missing the point.

    Can't believe E.J. is still that underated. He have had two back-to-back pro bowl seasons now and he's still underated.
    People would rather hear a name they know and not think about it, rather than delve into the numbers (or watch film) and actually observe the player.

    I know for SURE that as it stands today, EJ Henderson is much better than AJ Hawk. I'd say Hawk is as good as Greenway. They both had 78 solo tackles last season and 27 tackle assists, except Hawk only had one interception and zero TDs... Greenway had two interceptions and one TD...

    Again, no research went into this article. It's about "Names".

    Didn't Greenway also lead the league in fumble recoveries?



    And ItalianStallion, agreed on all accounts.
    Then again, at least we all know these rankings mean nothing.
    Would be nice seeing the right people get recognition tho
