I remember thinking that this kind of player usually plays for the enemy, never us..
He's still the most dominant player I've ever watched

and he and Jerry Rice were the best.
its kind of a joke how good he was  
hitdog42 : 7/7/2013 8:56 am : link
wonder what kind of contract he would sign nowadays in prime given what matthews signed for... he might take up an entire cap!
While i saw him play

I was real young when i did. If I had a time machine one of the first things i would do is go back to watch him play. I would love to see the difference now that i have an increase knowledge of the game.

Although when i was a kid and you think LT should just tackle the QB every play he didn't disappoint to often.
part of the contract would be that Matthews would have to

carry his pads to practise

I feel priviledged

to have been born in the time frame I was to have seen every single snap or every single game that LT has ever played in.
No doubt Blue Blood

I was born in '78 so a lot of it is vague to me, but I do have some fond memories. At least I have a clear view of the Eli era.
LT made it worth suffering through the 70's

and being of age to fully appreciate him. Suffering the 70's made enjoyment of LT even sweeter.

so friggin fast

i know that's a lazy way of quantifying LT's impact on a game but that's how I would describe him. Fast and deadly. He was just faster than everyone else on the field and he hit like a truck.
During the second half of the '92 season, when LT was not playing

due to a torn Achilles, Madden, while doing a Giants games in which the Giants defense was unable to stop the opponent, said, "I use to think the Giants defense was pretty good, but now I'm beginning to think it was just Lawrence Taylor and ten other guys."

Don't think there will ever be another one again like LT. Inhuman at times.

Fast, unbelievably. I'll never forget sitting a few rows up in section 112 in 1990 when the Giants played the vikes late in the season. I remember on one play, I watching the LOS and out of no where from up the middle LT shot through like a bullet. It looked like everyone else was in slow motion. He just blew up Vike's QB (I believe) Sean Salsbury. That same game, LT blew up a play (and I swear the vike's OL were standing around awe during the play) strip Salsbury the ball and it rolled towards the sideline. LT who was on the ground near the QB, got up, and nearly recovered the ball about 10-15 yds away. Crazy talent!

Loved what he brought to the game..relentlessness,,etc.
Some of the tapes look speeded up...

until you see the speed for everyone else's steps is so much slower.
