Lawrence Taylor’s talent may never be surpassed on defense
Former Dallas Cowboys’ quarterback and FOX Sports NFL analyst Troy Aikman has been saying some silly things lately. One thing he said heading into week 17 was that the Cowboys are the best team in the NFC East. Then of course the New York Giants defeated them to end the season and Dallas’ chances at winning the division went away.
Then during this past Saturday’s game between the Los Angeles Rams and Seattle Seahawks, Aikman said that Rams’ defensive lineman Aaron Donald is better than New York Giants’ legendary linebacker Lawrence Taylor.
I don’t have any doubt that Donald is probably the top defensive player in the NFL right now, but I don’t believe he’s surpassed LT. It’s easy to become a prisoner of the moment and I believe that’s what happened to Aikman.
Aikman is entitled to his opinion, but I don’t believe many people are going to agree with him on this one. As you can see in the tweet above, Bruce Feldman seemed to be shocked by what Aikman said.
