George Allen's 1976 Rankings of Linebackers

 By John Turney

In the least of a series, we present George Allen's ranking of linebackers. He lists middle linebackers and outside linebackers and then lists the best backups.

For Allen "Stub" is a strong-side backer, or some coaches call this a "SAM".  His "Buck" is the same as a "Will" or weakside linebacker. Mac is his term for middle linebacker, which is often called the "Mike".

  1. Very interesting. Ham rated surprisingly low and Siemon rated the tops. Gradishar rated same as randy white? White himself said he was fish out of water at inside backer. Very confusing. 76 was lambert at his best so you would think he would get 9 rating.
