Yikes. The last time we had multiple crazy good linebackers was back in the Cal Murphy Era. No offense wanted to play against James 'Wild' West, Greg Battle, Elfrid Payton and Tyrone Jones. I still can't believe they played on the same Bomber team at the same time. But that was back in the late 80's and early 90's when we ran the 'Three Four Defense' and ate every quarterback but Flutie (which by AMAZING coincidence was YOUR quarterback during this period). :smiley: :+1:

They're all present and accounted for on the 1991 Roster. :partying_face:

Add Stan Mikowas & Mike Gray and thats some serious front 7!

Payton was there at the end of Battle/West/Jones, but he played for WPG a few times well after 2000 & 2004.
