    Despite this fact, every time another athletic pass-rushing outside linebacker comes into the NFL, people start trying to compare them to him. Derrick Thomas was supposed to be the next Lawrence Taylor; Junior Seau was supposed to be the next Lawrence Taylor; low and behold, even Taylor's former coach, Bill Parcells, seems to want to jump on the bandwagon, likening Cowboys outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware to him. Thus far, it's all been rubbish. After all, anyone that got to watch Taylor play with any level of consistency knows the truth.</blockquote>
