Greg Lloyd was a great player, and that article about him was solidly written.

Good, sensible, well written article.....up until the final paragraph.

That was ten years ago this week. While Joey Porter, James Farrior, Jason Gildon, and most recently James Harrison have certainly carried on the Steelers linebacker legacy, no one has ever matched Greg Lloyd's intensity, explosiveness, or on-the-field presence since then.


Including a gutless, loafing pussy like Jason GilDong in this list is laughable. Worse, claiming that GilDong "certainly carried on the Steelers linebacker legacy" is a slap in the face to any and all of the hard-nosed LBs that have played for the Stillers.

Wow, I can't believe it's been that long. I'm a relatively new Steelers fan starting back in '92 and Lloyd is my all-time favorite player (the 70s was before my time). The thing I miss the most from this defense is the nastiness that we used to have. Kendrell Bell had it for a short while, Joey Porter had it for a while, but we've been way too cordial since the 90s.
