Lawrence Taylor knows how to get drafted

I spent the NFL Draft sitting next to Florio and chugging coffee for three days until even my typos starting having typos. 

Lawrence Taylor took a far different approach to the draft on the weekend he was selected by the Giants in 1981.

“I don’t remember too much.  I had 41 Coors Lights, so I couldn’t tell you,” he told SI.com.

Unlike the prospects of today, the real L.T. didn’t spend the day with family.

“I had my drinking buddies with me,” Taylor said.

  1. That’s because he’s a real man (despite the Girl’s Light…), unlike the pansies being raised today.
    LT, even as an Eagles fan, you have had my respect since childhood.

  2. “Lawrence Taylor knows how to get drafted”
    ……….and smoke crack, don’t forget that.

  3. “I had my drinking buddies with me, Taylor said.
    I think he meant to say he had his nose candy buddies with him. You missed a ” by the way.

  4. Congratulations to PFT. You have finally posted the PERFECT story.
    This story was relevant, its subject was a Hall of Fame player and you even got a quote about a professional athlete consuming copius amounts of alcohol.
    Kudos!

  5. Yea him and Daryl Strawberry use to hang out….they once went to Shea stadium and snorted the first baseline

  6. As an Eagles fan, I truly hate the G-hens, (and no dimwits I don’t hate the Stillers, you idiots just take the bait time and time again), i will say this………LT was and is the greatest defensive presence the NFL has ever seen, he changed the game, yeah i know he’s a knucklehead, i know he’s not a model citizen, but during the game, not practice(thanks AI) this man was the best i will ever see…….

  7. hey he spent the day with his family- drinking buddies are the best family a guy can have. my question is where was the coke and his lady friends? and i wish there would have been an ESPN camera in the confounds of his drinking party at draft time… that would have been epic footage.

  8. Most likely what I would do. Stay away from the stress and nonsense, Go hang out with your friends and have a good time. let the draft do its thing.

  9. After which LT drove all the way to San Francisco before realizing it was the New York Giants who drafted him.

  10. Brings me back to the good old days when NFL players were men’s men and not Bible-thumping pansies. Gimme’ a Steve McMichael or Jimmy Mac any day over these “character counts” limp wrists.

  11. and noone has pointed out that this may be him promoting Coors Light instead of being a true story..

  12. “I don’t remember too much. I had 41 Coors Lights, so I couldn’t tell you.”
    Sounds like something Rapenstein would say.

  13. You know that website with the random facts about Chuck Norris, Mr. T, and Vin Diesel? We need one about Lawrence Taylor. Such as…
    …the entire Giants draft class was composed of the sweat of Lawrence Taylor after bench pressing JaMarcus Russell…
    …the term sack was coined when everyone Lawrence Taylor hit had to be removed in sacks…
    …Lawrence Taylor ordered a combo meal in a McDonalds and the employee asked if he wished to Super Size. Misunderstanding, LT flexed his muscles and 3 bystanders were killed…

  14. FumbleNuts….
    Thanks for confirming that the male species is turning into a bunch of fairies and pansies. Go listen to your Wham! albums.
    Robert Ethan….
    Not something a real christian would say. Hypocrite and a pussy….lethal combination. Go preach somewhere else like at the High School you were ridiculed at.
    LT is the man. The world is not a better place. Snort a line off a strippers ass at 4 in the morning and beat your opponent to a bloody pulp 9 hours later. I am shedding a tear.

  15. “I am on my 14th miller lite watching Pens in OT!!!”
    So when are you going to switch over to beer?

  16. “Brings me back to the good old days when NFL players were men’s men and not Bible-thumping pansies. Gimme’ a Steve McMichael or Jimmy Mac any day over these “character counts” limp wrists”
    Buddy, you’re a miserable son of a b!tch, arent you?
    It’s sad that a crack smoking, alcoholic low-life gets praised and a morally sound super successfull kid like Tebow gets chewed out on a daily basis. Tebow has more balls than the majority of you $hitbag$. It takes a real man to stand up for what he believes in, not follow the masses who live their lives as underachieving, insecure slobs like yourselves.

  17. “LT was and is the greatest defensive presence the NFL has ever seen”
    Might want to reconsider that, Veal. Yes, LT was an animal, but greatest presence ever? Jack Tatum, Dick Butkus, Ronnie Lott, Reggie White. Any of those names change your mind about Taylor being the greatest??

  18. LT = LT, the HOF running back, formerly of the Chargers now of the Jest.
    Crack LT = a former NY Giants linebacker.

  19. PFT’s draft coverage would be far better if they followed LT’s lead…
    next year how about hitting some clubs instead of the studios & smoozing with with all your fellow experts…get drunk..snort some blow..& use the sprint phones to create some scandel
    it would be fun for you & entertaining to the readers
