NFL Legend

Defends Justin Bieber

He's a Great Neighbor!!!

Justin Bieber is finally getting some support from the NFL world -- 3-time Super Bowl champ Willie McGinest tells TMZ, Bieber is a GREAT neighbor ... despite claims by other NFL legends that the singer has a serious speeding problem.

The former Patriots linebacker -- who lives across the street from Bieber in their gated Calabasas community -- was out and about Monday when we asked about the Biebs' notorious alleged acts of neighborhood terrorism ... including allegations by ex-NFL stars Keyshawn Johnson and Eric Dickerson that Bieber's Ferrari is a dangerous menace.

But McGinest -- who left USC in 1993 just one year before Keyshawn joined the team -- says the rumors are all hype, telling us, "[Bieber's] a good neighbor. My daughters love him."

What's more ... McGinest says Bieber even goes above and beyond for the little kids in the neighborhood.

It all sounds nice -- but the fact still remains ... McGinest is pretty much the ONLY person who says Bieber's even remotely tolerable to live next to. And numbers don't lie.

Obviously someone wants tickets for the next Biebs show for his girls! What would YOU do for a Klondike bar?

What a dope. His daughters probably made him say that. Be a man and tell the truth. Everyone else already knows it.

By the way, Billboard magazine let fans vote on some awards and The Bieb won a big one. Most Overrated.

Better keep an eye on those daughters when they go out. As a father I wouldn't let them near that house

He's just saying this to stay cool with his daughters. In reality he probably wants to rip JB's head off and spike it like he's just scored a touchdown.

I guess if you are a man it would be an advantage to live next door to JB. imagine how many hot chicks would be standing outside his house. lol

Numbers don't lie but you do TMZ. You exaggerate with a negative spin anything to do with this kid. Aren't you guys a little old to be school yard bullies? It's getting a little old and boring.

Sounds to me like the Biebs and Willie McGinest have an oral agreement, so to speak.
