Belichick compares Ware to Lawrence Taylor

Patriots coach Bill Belichick gave linebacker DeMarcus Ware the highest compliment by comparing his Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor. Belichick coached Taylor with the Giants under Bill Parcells who made the same comparison when drafted Ware in 2005 as coach of the Cowboys.
“I mean Lawrence Taylor, you’re talking about a pretty high level there,” Belichick said. “Ware does all the things that … I mean, he’s the best player we’ve faced this year. He does all of the things you want him to do. He’s strong against the run. He can rush the passer. He’s great in pursuit. He’s got power. He’s got speed. He’s got good technique. He’s good in pass coverage. He gets a lot of depth. I mean, he’s an asset to your pass coverage, if you want to drop him. I’d say all those same things about Lawrence Taylor. Lawrence had a tremendous career. Ware has had a great --what is it? -- six years or whatever it’s been. He’s been great in that time and looks like he’s still going strong. I’m sure he’ll be able to continue at this level for quite a while longer here as far as what it looks like right now. He’s a guy you’ve got to account for on every snap. You’ve got to know where he is and he could definitely disrupt any play if you don’t handle him.” 
Ware was undoubted flattered by the comparison.
"That's a pretty big thing to say something like that," Ware said. "That's a guy that I idolized and i try to play like him. Its something I need to strive for."
Ware, who has five sacks this season, has 85 sacks and 25 forced fumbles in his first 100 games. Only the late Reggie White has had more sacks through 100 games.

Sorry about all the duplicate remarks, this commenting system on this blog is seriously flawed. I only pressed "Post" once and it did the below multiple posting of the same comment by myself.

There's no comparison between DWare and LT. Firstly, DWare is 1000 times smarter than LT. Secondly, DWare is bigger, faster, and stronger than LT ever was. If DWare played in the NFL in the 1980's and 1990's when LT played, the NFL would have banned DWare from the NFL because DWare would have been getting 10 sacks a game and would have injured every QB he faced. Banned!

Also, when DWare retires from the NFL in another 10 years, he will have his choice of second careers. He could become President of the USA. He could become the NFL Commissioner (Actually, I've always felt only former NFL players should be NFL Commishes). He could go to Hollywood and actually be a better and bigger star than Jim Brown or Hammer ever became. His career ceiling is limitless!

GO 'BOYZ!! Beat those stinking Boston Patsies! Those New England Turncoat Traitors. Those drop-a-cannonball-on-their-own-feet pink coats!
