NFC East: Phil McConkey
The best linebacker in the history of the league turns 50 on Wednesday. It doesn't seem possible that Lawrence Taylor can be 50 years old, but the birth certificate I'm staring at says just that.
In other news, there are rumors that Taylor will be on this season's "Dancing With the Stars," which comes as a shock to those of us who had Phil McConkey in the office pool.
Emmitt Smith won the competition a few years ago and players such as Jerry Rice, Jason Taylor and Warren Sapp have performed admirably. I'm not sure what to make of L.T.'s chances.
ABC will announce this season's celebrities Sunday, according to sources close to the Beast.
