Jack the Ripper was taller (6-4) and lighter (220) than most middle linebackers of his era, but his Butkus-like intensity was front and center before every snap.
But what set Lambert apart from other middle linebackers was his ability to smother backs and tight ends in passing situations, a talent that produced 28 career interceptions.
Lambert might have played with a demonic fervor, but behind that facade was a soft-spoken, sensitive, intelligent leader who served as defensive captain from 1977 until his 1984 retirement.
