Is Khalil Mack the next Lawrence Taylor? Bill Belichick and Lawrence Taylor weigh in.The Bears' Khalil Mack was a force against the Packers.By Cindy BorenOctober 18 at 10:38 AM

The Chicago Bears may have the highest-paid defensive player in the history of the game, but Bill Belichick isn’t buying comparisons to Lawrence Taylor. Neither, it turns out, is Lawrence Taylor.

Belichick was the New York Giants' defensive coordinator when Taylor was changing how NFL defense was played during his heyday, and his New England Patriots happen to face the Bears and Khalil Mack on Sunday. Naturally, this caused reporters to ask Belichick to compare the two linebackers, the kind of football-centric question he might ordinarily embrace.

Not where L.T. is concerned.

“Now, wait a minute. We’re talking about Lawrence Taylor now,” Belichick said. “Yeah, I’m not putting anybody in Lawrence Taylor’s class, so [huge pause] you can put everybody down below that. With a lot of respect to a lot of good players now, but we’re talking about Lawrence Taylor.”

He might as well have said, “Playoffs? Playoffs???” in his best Jim Mora impression. Taylor echoed his former coordinator on social media, tweeting, “What he said!!!!”

Belichick’s relationship with Taylor was special, but that doesn’t mean he wasn’t complimentary to Mack. He just wasn’t that complimentary.

“He gets after everybody. He’s a very disruptive player, so he turns it over on sacks, strip-sacks, fumbles, tipped balls, interceptions,” Belichick said of Mack. “He’s a really strong run player, he’s a good pass rusher, he’s got speed, he’s got power. He’s very aware and instinctive. So, yeah, he does more than sack the quarterback — he knocks the ball away from him, but he knocks it off running backs, too. He’s tough.”

Given the length and introspection of his answer, it’s clear that Belichick does like what he sees from Mack. As for comparisons, it’s probably a little early. At 27, Mack has 246 total tackles and 45.5 sacks through five seasons. Taylor finished his career with 132.5 sacks, a stat that wasn’t official pre-Taylor (he unofficially had 9.5 as a rookie), and also won an MVP award. In addition, he entered folklore by changing the way left tackle was played, as Michael Lewis memorably described in “The Blind Side.” After Taylor’s rise, the left tackle’s job increasingly focused on protecting star quarterbacks like Joe Theismann, whose leg Taylor accidentally broke in a “Monday Night Football” game.

Belichick hasn’t always shied away from comparing Taylor to modern stars, though. Last year, he couldn’t say enough about the Texans' J.J. Watt, who has 329 total tackles and 83 sacks through eight seasons (two of which were shortened by injury).

“Motor, effort, strength, quickness, instincts, the ability to make game-changing plays at critical times in the game,” Belichick said of Watt and Taylor. “Knowing when the big play — critical third-down or fourth-quarter play or red-area play — knowing those critical plays in the game. As good as Taylor would play all game, that was the time when he would play at his best.”

And Watt?

“He wins with his quickness in the pass rush,” Belichick said. “He’s long, hard to throw over, hard to block in the running game because of his length, strength and technique. With all that being said, probably the most important, impressive thing is his motor — plays hard every snap. There’s never a play off with him. He makes plays in pursuit, down the field, screen passes, ball thrown to receivers — he’s hustling, making plays 15, 20 yards down field.

“You just don’t see those plays from hardly anybody, but especially guys that are his size and that play as much as he does. He plays everywhere across the board — plays outside, plays inside. He’s effective everywhere. He’s a tough matchup on everybody.”

Written by top40

If anyone is interested I am Top40 online. In the real world my name is David Russell Ellenberger. I am a SWM 57 and live in Louisville, Ky. I started about 4 years ago. I wasn't exactly sure what I wanted the website to be about but I liked the idea of people voting on items in ranked lists. The voting on these ranked lists will move the items up or down in the rankings you vote by clicking the + or - buttons below or next to the item in a list, refresh the page and the item will then appear in it's new ranking. IMHO voting really is one of the most important things you can do. Your vote is literally worth millions of dollars and that's one thing the politicians want you to do but don't want you to think about in that way. In other words vote for me I'm the best and I'm for this I'm for that I am for all the things that you want and that's why should vote for me. In reality what its about is control over you and money. So next time you vote you should demand to get paid. But I digress that's voting on items is just one of the reasons I started I also wanted to get my point out to the people and hopefully other people will want to use my website to get their point out or at least create their own lists. I had hoped for this to be another social media website. That hasn't really happened and I have been online for almost 5 years now. More about that later.


Everyone thinks just put your website up and they will come but that's not really the case. Part of the problem is search engines like Google have almost complete control of the web and all the traffic on it and they want you to pay. They also don't like other social media sites or search engine type sites they are what's known in the business as viral sites or sites that mostly contain links and not much original content which is exactly what Google is. But I maintain that links are part of the branding and the way you show your links to the world is an original aspect of any website and part of the branding and is orginal content in and of itself. But Google doesn't think so, Because that's what they are and they of course want complete control and they have it and no one seems to care. I didn't care until I started this website. But again I digress.


Back to the point. Why I started this website. Well another reason was to make money you can sell things or you can put advertising on your website. You can go out and sell advertising yourself or simply sign up for advertising services that have already sold the advertising and put the ads on your website for you. Services like this from Google and it's advertising service called adsense. If you read up on the internet how to make money with a website You will eventually find Adsense and various websites will tell you you can make tens of thousands with website adverting its so easy. And that may be true just from a numbers point of view but then reality sets in. More coming in a few days. Thanks for reading....
