    Dan Patrick keeps sayng that LT was "not a great linebacker", but a great pass rusher

    Where does this come from? I saw LT's entire career, and he was tough against the run, could run down running backs from the side and occasionally from behind, and could also drop back into coverage. He was an incredible force all-around. Just because they didn't keep stats for forced fumbles, tackles, etc. doesn't mean they didn't happen.

    My nephew's friend's dads' ex-wife's cousin says that LT has a little munchkin voice.

    Everyone wants to believe they are whiteness to the best. Hence why people will now say Demarcus Ware, Alden Smith, and Von Miller are the best all time. Next year a commentator will have a new best. Who cares what they say. only one LB literally changed the game and that is LT.

    Too bad he couldn't be a good person like strahan outside of football instead of the scum he is. It hurts his legacy in my eyes.

    thats a terrible position by dan patrick to take. was LT as dominant in other aspects of playing LB as he was the pass rushing aspect? no. so what! was barry sanders not an amazing complete rb and just a specialist bc he was so good at yards after contact? thats a bad example but im trying to use a terrible example for effect to show how ridiculous it is to hold LTs pass rush ability against him in assessing his overall game. LT made a ton of huge, game changing, tremendous athleticism plays as a LB dropping off in coverage. doesnt he have a couple 90 yd plus return INT tds? Besides, Patricks a moron if he cant realize that perhaps LT didnt get a shot to display other aspects of his game bc coaching righfully so wanted him doing what he did best, terrorizing offenses by rushing the passer...

    The guy changed the way teams prepared and game planned. He revolutionized the LBer position. He didnt do it JUST by rushing the passer.


    Antrel asks fans to "please stick with us" and when it's over "we'll all celebrate together."

    Isn't Dan Patrick a female race car driver who doesn't actually win races?
