Ray did it by himself for a number of years and with a revolving door of coaches/coordinators.

It's tough to judge because they had different responsibilities. LT had one task: to find the player with the football (usually the quarterback) and crush him. Lewis had coverage responsibilities and had to direct the defense. Both were the best at what they did.

I've got Baltimore and Washington.

I'm pretty confident in the Ravens. Indy has been the beneficiary of a really weak schedule. Plus, Ray Ray > ChuckStrong.

My Redskins pick is based more on hope than belief. The Redskins and the Seahawks are very similar teams, but Seattle has a better defense. Two keys to the game: 1) How well Morris runs, and 2) How well Wilson responds to the Redskins' blitz.

I've got B-more and the skins. For me, the key to any Seattle game is how tight the game is officiated. If tightly officiated, Seattle loses. Seattle also seems to run more on emotion than talent. I don't think they're going to be up as much as they need to be.

I'm biased towards Derrick Brooks and Jack Ham as the best LB's based on their versatility. You could put them in almost any system and they would be successful. Ham still leads all LB's with the most takeaways.

Both Ray and LT had coaches who (smartly) dedicated their schemes to them. Without all that beef in front of Ray (siragusa, others) to soak up o-lineman, I don't think Ray is as good. You could clearly see that when they had a year or two without the big beef and Ray's numbers slipped.

Thanks for your confidence, my friend. However, unless a miracle takes place in the next couple of minutes, it's not gonna happen. frown.gif

Although Ray is the only player in NFL history with 40+ sacks and 30+ interceptions, I give the nod to LT because he changed the way linebacker is played and forced opposing offenses to game-plan for him. He was the first to sack-and-strip and always had to be blocked, even on a running play to the other side of the field. Now, all linebackers try to play like LT, but he was the first.

Not looking good for RG3. Injury looks bad. frown.gif It's over for the Redskins.

Not sure why so many people had the 'Skins. East coast bias + QB hype I guess but the Sea Hawks are a beast.
