    Wilson may be 2nd best MLB in NFL but not second to Thomas

    Last year Ray Lewis was listed as the starting Pro-Bowler at the MLB position and most commentators listed Al Wilson right behind him. While Wilson doesn't have the size of Lewis, he's every bit the playmaker on defense, plus he's been the defensive leader that's been largly responsible for pulling the group together.

      The Great Warrior known as Al Wilson, is a greater force in the war of football. Thomas is the benfactor of brilliant cover corners, so teams have little choice but to run at him and dink and dunk passing strategies over the middle, where he patrols, boosting his tackling numbers.

      Wilson makes his physical presence felt by the other team. His tackle numbers should be eleveated, this year, with improved coverage in the secondary.

          exactly!! and i'm an idiot for thinking that apparently! But Ray Lewis is going to be the best LB to ever play the game!

          in order it goes

          1. Ray Lewis
          2. Al Wilson
          3. Brian Urlacher

            The warrior known as Urlacher, is tremendously over-rated.

                I wouldnt go as far as to call Urlacher overrated, he falls in the same category as Vick with having no supporting cast to help him. Look at his numbrs, there pretty phenominal given who he has around him. The loss of Colvin hurt him as welll.



                Wilson is definatly in the upper rankings of the LB community, joined by Lewis, obviously, Keith Bulluck is one of the better not as big name backers, Thomas is a tackling machine, no doubt about it, but he does have, on paper, what should be the #1 ranked defense around him, but thats all opinion really. But when it comes down to it, I'd take Wilson any day over Thomas. Not only is Wilson younger, but he has alot of attriubutes that will out do Thomas.

                  JDSlick is a dumbass, to compare a MLB of Wilsons status entering his prime (Also ranked as one of the top 25 players in the whole NFL by sportingnews and other places) to Zach Thomas who is way past his prime and was never as good as Al Wilson is now is flat out stupid. JDSlick is a dumbass

                          Al's a much better playmaker and a better leader.





                          Doesn't he look good?

                            Okay, I love having Al Wilson on the Broncos. I think he's a great player and team leader. I'm still impressed that he takes the entire defense to dinner each week to promote the defensive chemistry.

                            But there's no reason to dog on Zach Thomas. He's also a great linebacker and deserves the recognition he gets. Just because a guy isn't a Bronco doesn't mean he's not worthy.

                            That being said, I wouldn't trade Al Wilson for anybody, including Ray Lewis. Wilson is a high character guy while Lewis has a questionable legal background. Although, if Lewis wasn't possibly a murderer...

                              I agree with you 100%...He is the most overrated player in the NFL...

                              BTW I would rather have Al Wilson than Zach Thomas...
