If you had the chance to have any....
 
....of these guys in their prime, who would you choose?

Jack Ham
Lloyd
James Harrison.

I go Harrison. Bigger, meaner, stronger, more menacing than
all. He likely won't be as acclaimed, but he is the best among
them from the way I see it.

Ah man. I only get one! I'd have to go with Harrison too. I didn't start following football until the mid-90's though. I think any choice would be a winner.

Lloyd was/is my all-time Steeler favorite. I just loved him. He was a
baaaaaaaaaaaaaadddd man. But I think JH is even nastier. JH seems
to inflict major hurt on every single tackle he makes. He uses his
leverage and explosiveness better than GL. Maybe I will have to give
them a "tie" on being my favorite Steelers of all time. I believe JH lower
body power gives him an edge in getting around OTs and using it to
flip opponents in the air and smash them to the ground. Hell, he even
does it to Browns _fans_ who rush onto the field! I mean, come on!

What is it about Ham that makes fans think he was so outstanding? I mean,
he was very good, but not really a menacing LB. Just a proficient one. Good
in coverage, etc. But not really out there making crushing hits that I have seen.

It wasnt about the hitting part, he was a smart player when it came knowing what the opponents play was. He had quite a few Ints.

If Lambert was on this list I would take him...but I think that Lloyd was much better than Harrison and I think he was a bigger animal. I still remember Cowher telling him "rush the passer, you line up how your comfortable and rush the passer"

Imagine if James Harrison could have "gotten his shot" in his early-mid 20's instead of being a career backup or special teamer until he was 29...damn. I mean, maybe it was riding the bench so long and having that time to adjust that made him so good once he was finally named a starter, but if he could have been doing what he's done the past few years when he was a lot younger, he could have been the greatest OLB of all time...maybe.

Not sure if I still would choose him over Ham or Lloyd, because we didn't exactly get to see an extended look at him "in his prime," but it's something to think about...
