    For the record, I'm not saying AT is LT by any stretch but I was cruising through some Youtube videos and stumbled on this, check out the clip at 32 seconds.

    Man, LT was just sick !! What a monster, and an absolute beast that teams had to actualy gameplan for. I like AT, but he's not even on the same planet as LT was. Hell, I wouldn't even compare him to the original AT, Andre Tippett. The game has changed a lot since LT came into the league, offensive linemen have become more athletic, but LT was the greatest LB I've eer seen, maybe the greatest defensive player I've ever seen.

    I totally agree, and I think Belichick meant the same thing. When you look at players you compare them to the best, and of the best AT's skill set is somewhat similar to LT's in that he's big and fast and athletic. I was just amazed at how similar that sack was to AT's sack of Favre+Washington.
