NFL Football: 2011-2012's Most Dominant Linebacker Duos

The linebacker position is one of the most difficult positions in the NFL.

Linebackers are tasked with being strong and physical enough to push past 350-pound offensive linemen to get to the quarterback and/or stop the run. In addition to that physical strength, linebackers are tasked with having enough athleticism and speed to run down-field with receivers and tight ends.

Finding just one player with that rare and elite combination of strength, speed and football I.Q is hard enough. Some teams, shockingly enough, have found two of those elite type of players whether through the NFL draft or free agency.

Getting two high-end/elite linebackers is either the result of a genius front office or pure luck.  I think these eight linebacker tandems are a results of smart drafting and opportunistic offseason acquisitions.
