Yes you need at least a little bit of talent, so comparing him to Alonzo Jackson is silly and baseless. But I do believe our system makes LBs look better than they actually are.
Yes the Steelers defensive system allows the LBs to make plays.....But 77 career sacks is nothing to sneeze at.....I don't see Clark Haggans approaching that total....That would be a nice example of a guy being a product of the Steelers system.....
