IMO the two most dominate MLB in the league, maybe not the best stats but the most dominate.

Who's the better MLB? I argue no contest because they are two totally different styles of MLB, but pound for pound it has to be Thomas. Obviously this is a bias audience, but honest opinions.

Zach hands down.
He's stronger at the point of attack and a better coverage LB. He's not pass rusher that Urlacher is because of his size, but it doesn't stop him from getting a couple sacks or so a year. Zach hits harder, puts more effort in, brings it on every snap.

Zach
ZACH!!!

Please...Urlacher hands down! I love Zach, dont get me wrong, he is a great player...but I never seen him throw Brett Favre 20 - 30 feet into the sidelines! lol...and of course there's the HOF game tackle of Feeley....hehe:lol:
*dont rank on me, I am just as much a Fin fan as a Bears fan...***:wink:

Okay, probably.


and a better coverage LB.
:confused: --You do realize that Urlacher was actually a Safety in College... Right? Have you actually ever watched Urlacher?


He's not pass rusher that Urlacher is because of his size, but it doesn't stop him from getting a couple sacks or so a year. Actually I would say this is also true, but more because of defensive schemes more than anything.

:goof:


They are two totally different players. Would have either one of em as ML any day... These are the type of guys you draft/build around. Everybody else's job on D is less complicated cause of them

Never say any MLB other than Ray Lewis is the best in the league, Untill Ray retires he will be the most physical defensive player in the game, and he is an amazing leader, that goes with some very good speed, as long as Ray comes back healthy no-one is near his level......maybe I went overboard here, its just my opinion

Out of those two Id take ZT though

Dom--Metamucil, much more than just a breakfast treat:D

Ease up on Url man... He really is one stand up dude. From a tiny ranch town in New Mexico... Alright, I am a homer.. but he really is a stand up guy.

That being said, I love what ZT brings to us.. Also, If Lewis comes back to his former self.. He probably is the best in the league.. Even if he should be a convicted fellon:cooldude: (Allegedly)

Url is a good guy, and a hellova LB. I hate Lewis, should be in prison. But I think he has hit the peak and started falling. I think he only has a season or two left in the tank

Haha, it doesn't really matter if Urlacher was a safety in college, in terms of coverage at a NFL level Zach is just better. Stats don't lie.

Since Urlacher has been in the pros only seven years, let's compare his stats now to Zach's first seven years.

Zach had twelve picks
Urlacher has had seven

Zach had deflected 25 passes
Urlacher deflected 29

And in terms of strength and FF

Zach through his first seven years had 610 solo tackles
Urlacher has 538 solo tackles

Zach forced 10 fumbles
Lacher has forced 7...

hrmmmm

Who's better????

Zach by far.Zach plays with intensity that no other NFL player has.Urlacher may be faster and better coverage linebacker but Zach beats Urlacher in every other catagory.

It's very easy..I was born in Chi-town, so I was raised on Da' Bears...but I also love the Fins, cause they have good players and my sweetie got me more into them...Now I know having 2 fav teams is not THAT unusual!! lol:goof:

Zach Thomas is the best MLB in the NFL pound for pound, there is not an argument to that.

RL- 6'1 245
BU- 6'4 258
ZT- 5'11 228

... and personally I think that 5'11 may be stretching him just a little bit.

MLB is my favorite postion, so these are three of my favorite players.

I would take ZT, but to say ZT is better in coverage isnt true.

Zack is alot better at tacking on blockers though, that Urlacher's main weakness.

think, remember when BU got trucked by the bus and gave up a TD,well I can tell you one thing, Zach wouldn't have let that happen

Zach Thomas gives everything he as and shows a special kind of heart! I think BU is better in coverage, But overall Zach is alot better

Zach is better at making tackles and getting involved in tackles. Urlacher is better in Coverage and making plays as well as INTs

w/out a doubt I take Zach with his talent, leadership & never-say-die mentality in a second....
