When asked Wednesday if Chicago Bears defensive star Khalil Mack is up there with Pro Football Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor, New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick seemed almost offended by the question.
Belichick coached LT during his time as New York Giants defensive coordinator in the 1980s.
Taylor played 13 seasons and totaled 132.5 sacks, earning nine All-Pro awards over that span. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1999.
Mack has five sacks, four forced fumbles and one interception returned for a touchdown for the 3-2 Bears.
But apparently he's no LT. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing.
