    No. Sorry, but no. I know everyone loves him since he died, but he's not one of the best ever.

        One of my favorite players I've ever had the privilege of watching on the football field. Every time he stepped foot on that field you always felt like something special could happen at anytime. I've always felt kinda badly that I felt worse about Sean's death than I have about the death of some relatives and others who I knew. Watching him definitely had an impact on me.

        RIP Sean Taylor. Never Forgotten.

          He was having an awesome rebound year when it happened.. I couldn't believe it when my roommate told me he died. When it set in it was terrible.

            He was only a few years into his career and already was one of the, if not the, most feared person over the middle of the field. He had a great nose for the ball, and was a turnover machine. He was arguably one of the top 3 safeties in the game at the time of his death. The sky was the limit, and if he had not been murdered theres no question he would of went down as one of the best safeties to ever play the game.

                It's unfortunate how soon his career (and life, of course) ended, but you can't just project him out as one of the best ever. He only played three and a half seasons, there is no way you can possibly put him into that group.

                    Did you actually ever watch him play?

                    You don't need a huge sample (10+ seasons) to be able to determine how good a player is. Gale Sayers, Terrell Davis, in their short time in the league, I think it's safe to say they established themselves as two of the best players at their position.

                    Sean Taylor was special. And in his short time he was able to play established how special he would be.

                      Obviously he was talented as hell, and had started to get his life straight.
                      He would be in the middle of his prime right now, and can you imagine him with LaRon Landry back there right now?

                      That is dangerous to even imagine right now as well as Landry has been playing (other than the vs Vick comedy night).

                              It's unfortunate that his life, and his career ended when it did but I do agree with the tendency to canonize an individual after their death. Its natural as humans to be subject to nostalgia, so I definitely understand. The same things happened with Michael Jackson. Regardless of how you rank him in your all time safety rankings, its always sad to see someone so talented who had finally begun to straighten himself out be taken so early. Its life, but it just sucks sometimes.

                              That said, he was an incredibly gifted athlete and he was just learning to properly play the safety position. And Ill admit, I was a little teary eyed myself when Reed Doughty came on in the second play of that Bills game after they played with 10 for the first play. What an excellent play of remembrance. The Skins organization has been heavily criticized recently, but that was just great.
