Lawrence Taylor
As a freshman playing on special teams, he'd jump a good six or seven feet in the air to block a punt, then land on the back of his neck. He was reckless, just reckless.
Taylor quotes
It's not a moment I want to remember, or see again.
Taylor
There are a lot of people who can make tackles, but I always seemed to look for the big play. The big play got noticed, the big play was the one that changed the game...I have always wanted to be the one who made those plays.




Taylor Lawrence quotes
He is the Michael Jordan of football.

Lawrence Taylor, defensively, has had as big an impact as any player I've ever seen. He changed the way defense is played, the way pass-rushing is played, the way linebackers play and the way offenses block linebackers.
Lawrence Taylor quotes
I used to always say when I went on the football field, 'You know I'm the best player out here on this field.' Is that being cocky? Maybe it is.
Lawrence Taylor
All I can say about Lawrence Taylor is that he's the best defensive football player I've seen. I've said many times he's the best player I've seen in my era defensively. Everyone else is a pretender.
Taylor Lawrence quotes
I don't worry too much about the choices I've made. When my days are over I'll have to answer for everything I've done. I don't grieve in any way about bad consequences for things I've done in my life.
Taylor
A transformation would take place when he'd put on his uniform. He would be transformed into this homicidal maniac.
Taylor Lawrence
We had to try in some way have a special game plan just for Lawrence Taylor. Now you didn't do that very often in this league but I think he's one person that we learned the lesson the hard way. We lost ball games.
Lawrence Taylor
I think that he was the greatest football player that I ever stepped on the field against. Nobody dictated what you could do offensively like LT.




Lawrence Taylor quotes
I guess that I'm just a plain wild dude.
Lawrence Taylor
I mean everything you did (on offense) was predicated to where he was and what he was doing.
Taylor quotes
In 30 or 40 years, I'm going to take out the tapes and show them to my grandkids. To show them I really played against Lawrence Taylor. The greatest. (He was then asked what he will tell his grandkids) That he was everything they said he was.
Taylor Lawrence
I had gotten really bad. I mean my place was almost like a crack house.
Taylor Lawrence quotes
You saw hunger. Some guys were great at playing their position but didn't have that feeling inside and that was something that L.T. had with him every down of every game and he never lost it.
Lawrence Taylor
The demons will always be there, Always. But you know, (hard breath) you can always fight demons.
Lawrence Taylor quotes
Taylor is the best college linebacker I've ever seen. Sure, I saw Dick Butkus play. There's no doubt in my mind about Taylor. He's bigger and stronger than Butkus was. On the blitz, he's devastating.

Let's go out there like a bunch of crazed dogs and have some fun.
