Default Best OLB

As I was thinking about Porter, it made start thinking about all the great linebackers that the Steelers have had over the years. I decided to include ONLY outside linebackers. I cannot believe anyone would debate that Ham was the best. Whose next? Lloyd? Greene? Gildon? Brown? Andy Russell? For my money, it goes Ham, Lloyd, Brown, Gildon, Porter. Thoughts?

Ham - not even close. Was gonna say L.T., but reread the question and realized it was asking about Steelers' OLBs only.

(taking ham out of the equation), if kevin green woulda played most of his career in pittsburgh he would be the easiest next choise. he will probably (or atleast should) go into the H.O.F. as the all-time lb sack leader. he was a prototypical steeler. its a shame he wasnt drafted in the black and gold.

him, lloyd, and porter brought an image and attitude to the team that the others didnt. these intangibles are what set them above the others listed.

OLB Ham all the way.He could blitz when needed and he was deadly in coverage.Probally the smartest OLB to ever play the game.

I agree with your first two, but I don't think Brown played long enough for us to be put ahead of Gildon, and Russell.
