    So he would have to move to 3-4 OLB or take on a Dwight Freeney role. Whatever, I still think he could play.

People are going to over rate players such as LT because of his increased exposure compared to those who played before them, those are the players that they can visualize in their heads from watching TV. Lets not forget that none of the great linebackers of yester year even appear on the sack list.
    If anything that would have helped Lambert's legend. People would have had to judge him based on word of mouth rather than what they saw and that often causes the truth to be exaggerated.

    Taylor from what I understand was the first Rush-Backer. He completely screwed up the opponents passing game and could shut down the run. Teams couldn't run to his side. I would say not being able to run to one side of the field would put a big damper on your offense.
