I totally agree. I hope they really put Ray Lewis' intro dance in the game. They should bring back player intros, & if not for every team @ least for the Ravens. I kno they may b 1 of the only teams that has a specific intro. With the dance and Lewis getting them hype b4 the game. Can any1 please tell me how i can reach the art designer b/c i would like 2 see it in the game??? Especially since the motto is If you see it on sundays, you see it in Madden

I don't think I have ever seen the Lights Out dance in the game before. All I have seen is some sort of "bull stomp" celebration but not the Lights Out dance.

Ranking the top 25 NFL linebackers



Posted: July 21, 2008
War Room scouts



More position rankings: QB | RB | WR | TE | OT | G | C | DE | DT
So what's the buzzword for an elite NFL linebacker, no matter whether he plays outside or inside? Playmaking. Whether it's making tackles, rushing the passer, covering receivers, it's all about making an impact. These are the very best of the impact players at the position:

******** type="text/javascript"> DART.init( { "site_key_name":"spn.nfl", "zone":"article", "pos":"right1", "tile":"2", "sz":"300x250" }); ******** type="text/javascript" src="http://ad.doubleclick.net/adj/spn.nfl/article;pos=right1;tile=2;sz=300x250;ord=546412698 9379902?"> ******** src="http://m1.2mdn.net/879366/flashwrite_1_2.js">








1. Shawne Merriman, San Diego Chargers. Merriman is the ultimate playmaking linebacker in the modern NFL. A top pass rusher, he is also strong against the run and plays with unmatched intensity. Although some will point to his struggles with the NFL substance-abuse policy, there still seems little doubt he's the league's most talented at the position. 2. Brian Urlacher, Chicago Bears. Urlacher does everything well, which makes him the ideal field general for the Bears' Tampa 2 scheme. In addition to being a top run defender with the speed to chase from sideline-to-sideline, he is also adept in coverage and can be an effective blitzer. Urlacher is tough, a tremendous leader, and still played well despite injuries in 2007. With some more help from his defensive tackles, he should once again be a dominant player after a slight decline.

3. DeMarcus Ware, Dallas Cowboys. Ware is just a notch below Merriman outside. He is another top pass rusher who displays remarkable speed and quickness. Lost in his quarterback-chasing prowess is Ware's ability to seal off edges against the run and run with both backs and tight ends in coverage.

4. Adalius Thomas, New England Patriots. Thomas is another versatile linebacker who can play just about anywhere in the Patriots' 3-4 alignment. He wasn't the monster some fans expected when he came over from the Ravens, but his ability to play the matchup game for Bill Belichick's unit makes the Patriots a very tough team to plot against.

5. Julian Peterson, Seattle Seahawks. Peterson is a rare athlete with a knack for making big plays. He is a stellar run defender who can lay the wood. He is quick and smooth when dropping into coverage. He also makes plays on the ball and is a terrific blitzer off the edge.

6. Terrell Suggs, Baltimore Ravens. Even though Suggs will often put his hand in the dirt as a defensive end in pass-rush situations, he is officially an outside linebacker. He is an explosive playmaker as a pass rusher and continues to improve against the run, using his hands and physical strength to seal edges. He is very versatile and can attack from both sides, making him a matchup problem for most offensive coordinators.

7. Lance Briggs, Chicago Bears. Quickness is the key to Briggs' game. He diagnoses plays with ease, has a good first step, and is at his best when he can run to the ball, making plays from sideline-to-sideline. He is a sure tackler who chases down running plays and rushes the passer well, but his strength comes in his coverage skills, which are nearly unparalleled. Playing next to Uralcher, he's an outstanding athlete and terrific playmaker in his own right.

8. Keith Bulluck, Tennessee Titans. One of the NFL's most underrated players, Bulluck simply makes plays all over the field. Despite a drop in numbers last season (fewer than 100 tackles for the first time since 2001), is still one of the league's surest-tackling run defenders. He can also play well in coverage and is a natural leader on the Titans defense.

9. Mike Peterson, Jacksonville Jaguars. Another tough guy who is very athletic and highly productive. He has struggled with injuries in recent seasons, but when he is healthy, he is a game-changer who anchors a top NFL defense.

10. DeMeco Ryans, Houston Texans. Ryans is a very instinctive player who diagnoses plays well, wastes few steps, and gets to the ball quickly. He is closing in on 300 tackles after only 32 career games. He is a stellar athlete who has great range and a nose for the ball.

11. Shaun Phillips, San Diego Chargers. Some don't give Phillips his due, and attribute his success to playing across from Merriman. But any team that has tried to single-block Phillips will argue that point. Big, physical, and athletic, he is a sure tackler who can dominate against the run. A high-effort player, he is looking to make a play on every snap.

12. Patrick Willis, San Francisco 49ers. Quick and instinctive, Willis exploded on the scene as a rookie with 174 tackles. He is very fast and will run from sideline-to-sideline to track down ballcarriers. When he gets there, he can separate the runner from the ball. With experience and more time in the lineup, he will quickly become an elite player in the league.

13. James Harrison, Pittsburgh Steelers. Joey who? No one was asking about his Joey Porter's whereabouts last fall and that's because Harrison made everyone forget in Pittsburgh. He quickly became the premier playmaker in the Steelers' 3-4 defense with 98 tackles, 8 1/2 sacks, 7 forced fumbles and an interception. With stronger play from a healthier front in '08 that includes including rising star LaMarr Woodly, Harrison can be more dominant.

14. Mike Vrabel, New England Patriots. Vrabel had a stellar '07, and despite his age (he will turn 33 in August), he remains a very versatile and productive performer. A tremendous pass rusher, the Pats also rely on him to defend the run, drop into coverage, and even take part in the goal-line offense. Vrabel will regularly be moved inside and outside and be called upon to match up based on an offense's strengths, which is what really makes the Patriots' scheme work.

15. Bart Scott, Baltimore Ravens. Everyone thought Scott would be the new star of the Ravens' defense when Thomas left for the Patriots. It didn't happen. As suspected, he wasn't quite the same player as he was in '06 (when he was dominant) without a strong and familiar supporting cast. Still, he's strong and versatile, delivers big hits and can play any position in the Ravens' linebacker corps. Scott remains at his best, however, when lined up inside next to Ray Lewis.

16. Greg Ellis, Dallas Cowboys. Ellis returned from injury to learn a new position in '07 and responded with 12 1/2 sacks. Although he is aging (he will turn 33 in August) and may lose his job to Anthony Spencer sooner rather than later, Ellis is a solid run defender as well and brings a veteran presence to the Dallas D.

17. Ray Lewis, Baltimore Ravens. Some will argue that Lewis deserves a higher ranking than this, but a look at the results of the '07 season will show that Lewis is not the playmaker he once was. He can't dominate on his own without some protection from the linemen in front of him. He is still a very good tackler and run defender, and his leadership role on the Ravens is unquestioned, but his best days are behind him.

18. Lofa Tatupu, Seattle Seahawks. Tatupu is a playmaker who always is around the ball. He is very quick to get deep in his coverage drops and has the hands to make plays on the ball. He also moves quickly against the run and is a sure tackler. Although he is undersized (6-0, 242) and not given enough credit for his athleticism, Tatupu is the perfect fit for the Seattle Tampa-2 scheme and will continue to be a top playmaker.

19. Michael Boley, Atlanta Falcons. Boley is another playmaker who does it all; he quietly racked up surpassed 110 tackles last season. Productive and athletic, he has the range to make plays all over the field and should get only better under the tutelage of new coach Mike Smith, who was so instrumental in building the stellar defense in Jacksonville.

20. Nick Barnett, Green Bay Packers. Barnett is at his best when playing upfield, where he can consistently wrap up ballcarriers between the tackles while still having the lateral speed to make plays outside the tackle box. Although not known for his pass-rush ability, he can get to quarterbacks and is the anchor of a much-improved Green Bay defense.

21. James Farrior, Pittsburgh Steelers. Age (33) is catching up to Farrior, and although he hasn't been the playmaker he once was, he is as steady as they come playing inside in the Steelers' defense. Like Ray Lewis, he is still a strong run defender and on-field leader.

22. Keith Brooking, Atlanta Falcons. Brooking is coming off a down year in '07, but he could be moved back to his natural position on the weak side this season. He is smart, tough, instinctive, and fast. His versatility has allowed him to play several roles on the Falcons' defense over the years. Even though this is probably his last year on this list, he's a natural playmaker and a team-first kind of player who can play anywhere.

23. A.J. Hawk, Green Bay Packers. Hawk flies around the field. He plays with great intensity and has a mean competitive streak. Although he had a "down" second year in '07, he still recorded 105 tackles and showed his trademark quickness and explosiveness throughout the season. He is a great athlete and a football player through and through. He can do just about anything on the field.

24. Zach Thomas, Dallas Cowboys. Old school allegiances die hard and so we have a hard time rooting against Thomas, even at 35. He has defied the odds as an undersized middle man for his entire career. He has played in every scheme imaginable and succeeded. He has crafted a career as super-productive linebacker because of a head, heart, and hustle mantra that won't allow him to offer anything less than his best effort on every snap. The Cowboys let Akin Ayodele go for a reason. They expect Thomas to perform.

25. London Fletcher, Washington Redskins. Fletcher has been counted out for several consecutive years now, but he continues to be consistently productive and a natural leader in the middle of the Redskins' defense. With Andre Carter and Jason Taylor working at end, expect the running game to come straight downfield at Fletcher. Expect even more tackles this year.
For all the work you did this was an epic fail...also this list is pre 08

PM him. I believe it is Micheal Young. If not him just PM Ian or one of the other EA fellas and they will respond or forward you in the proper direction.

Re: The Shawne Merriman Celebration will be in madden 10 after a sack/Half sack

The only thing I want to see Shawn Merriman doing in the game that would increase the "realism" is peeing into a damn cup and then hitting the suspension list...

His "dance" is a ridiculous nod to gang violence and thug life (firing an imaginary "gun" in the air after a sack is not celebration, it is pre-meditated endorsement of the act being parodied, and to anyone who has lost a family member to stray bullets fired indiscrimately in the air it is a slap in the face).

I know that an acknowledged steroids user may actually be truly in support of drug and gun culture, but to glorify it in a game with as many missing details as the Madden franchise BEFORE fixing the other things would be a grave mistake...

Just my $0.02...glorifying cheaters and poor character people is not in the best long term interests of anyone - whether it is an individual team, EA, the NFL or anyone else...

I dont like the guy, but Im PRETTY sure that he isn't firing a gun. They call him lights out and he has a tattoo of a light switch on his arm that he "turns on and off". I want the Dance in because I hate the Chargers, I hate seeing him do it, and IMO it adds to the Raiders/Chargers rivalry which IMO any presentation help is a good thing.
