What about the Redskin's back up QB?

So would Jack Lambert, Dick Butkus, and Ray Nitschke. I believe Butkus is consensus #1.

wel, he did say "best I've ever seen" which rules out all those guys if he's my age or younger. Lewis is definitely the best one in my life as an adult sports fan

I am old enough to have seen Singletary play live. I think Lewis is better. I added the qualifier "middle" because I am not prepared to say that Lewis is better than Lawrence Taylor.

If Reid comes to AZ, trust me, Kolb isn't going anywhere. The only good football that chump has ever played was with Reid in Philly.

LT reigns supreme as the #1 LB of all time.

the funny thing is, I bet half of Styleforum mainly remembers Singletary as that clusterfuck of a Niners coach

I would only give it to Ray over LT because his dominance came at a time when he was practically running that defense by himself, LT not only had Parcell's as a coach/mentor but the likes of Pepper Johnson and Carl Banks among others by his side, hell even Singletary had Buddy Ryan/Ditka and Richard Dent and the rest of the beasts from the '86 Bears. Ray did it by himself for a number of years and with a revolving door of coaches/coordinators.

It's rare that a great player becomes a great coach in any sport. Players who become quality coaches are usually journeymen. My theory is that the great players don't understand the journeymen and role players, and don't know how to get them to play above themselves in order to win.

True, but I can see Lewis (because of his passion) and Peyton Manning (because of his teaching ability) becoming great coaches if that's what they choose to do after they finish playing. Both of these guys are less-than-elite physical specimens who willed themselves to be great.

I remember reading about how Ray Lewis gets requests all the time to give motivational speeches. The awesome thing was that he frequently accepts them. As in, the Ravens will be playing at Tampa Bay and he'll just drop in to Hillsborough High School to fire up their football team.

He seems like one of those guys you would kill (pun probably intended) to be teammates with and love to play for.
