THEY MADE THEIR NAME BY PURSUING AND PUNISHING THE BALLCARRIER
LB, BEARS, 1965 TO '73
They call it "forming up": getting square for the perfect form tackle. Nobody was ever better at it than number 51, who ranged all over the field.
DICK (NIGHT TRAIN) LANE
CB, THREE TEAMS, 1952 TO '65

LB, GIANTS, 1981 TO '93
The best in history at outside 'backer was also first to use the strip-sack on nearly every pass rush.
