The Lawrence Taylor documentary was both interesting and yet a bit sad.

This guy had all the talent in the world and is likely the best defensive player the NFL has ever seen. Maybe the drugs helped make him that way, a lot like the bottle helped Hemingway become Hemingway, he alluded to that at one point. 

I had a high school football coach that played with Taylor at Carolina and he had a few stories he would share and while he was likely on beer/alcohol at that point he still had a wild streak.
