    Alright, I know this is going to come off as harsh, but I gotta say it.

    First and foremost, RIP. His life was tragically taken away and it's a shame, no question about it.


    But hero? He wasn't a hero. I understand a lot of people look up to him bc of his freakish athleticism and all, but the guy wasn't exactly a model citizen either.

    I understand he's passed away, and I'm not going to deny it was tragic, but let's not paint the guy to be something more than he was. He was a great football player with crazy athleticism.

    But he wasn't a hero.

      I remember watching him in college and thinking it looked like a professional playing against high school kids. Pure dominance. Tis a shame
      The Brian Sabean sig is no more. I disagreed with you on so many levels. And then you went out and built a dynasty. I am lame.

        I loved Sean Taylor as a prospect, one of my favorite guys at probably my favorite position.

        That said, he was a young player that struggled a bit and showed flashes early on. He was starting to blossom, but he was not one of the most dominant players ever, and certainly was no hero.

        He was a guy that seemed to be getting it, after being a real dick early on (spitting in peoples faces among other things).

        But yea, death does wonders for your legacy. Heath Ledger would just be a *** cowboy if he didn't die.

        It's not hate, but these threads are really annoying when people try to make someone into something they aren't.

          Thank god for the mute button.

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.
            Michael Jackson is still the perv that slept with little boys to me. am i gonna get in trouble for that?

            RIP ST

              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.
              I'm sorry, but Sean Taylor never had several mega impact years like Sayers and Davis did in their short careers. In fact, Taylor had an off year before he bounced back and was on his way to becoming an elite safety. There is just no ******* way you can call him one of the best ever, not even ******* close.


              RIP TheManInBlack

                Well, I guess I'm a hater, because I'm with GB12.

                As soon as Sean Taylor died, he became "ZOMG BEST SAFETY EVER" and everyone's favorite player.

                    I am shocked Goddell hasn't fined Sean's estate for his hits. Joking. I am bad.

                    I is sad. RIP ST

                      R.I.P Sean. He was definetly on his way to being the best safety in the league. I still remember that playoff game vs the Skins in Tampa.

                        No he wasnt a model citizen but he was a guy that completely changed his life style and how he lived once his little girl came into his life. Alot of Redskins players were praising him for how mature he was after that. He wasnt that immature punk anymore like he was when he first got into the league. He may not be a true warrior hero but he's a hero for changing the way he did, for protecting his family and making sure no harm comes there way.

                        Props to fenikz on the awesome sig

                          This. "Hero" might be a little bit strong, but you need to give the man credit for trying to turn his life around. Also, there was a lot of DPOY talk leading up to his death. Along with turning around his life off the field, it looked like he was done with being the guy who got by on his talent on the field, too. It's a damn shame he was cut down right as he was trying to improve himself.

                          RIP to the only guy in Madden history that me and all of my friends traded for before starting a franchise.

                          EDIT: Didn't read the end of your post. In that sense, yes, he's a hero.

                              1) Start franchise with a 4-3 team.
                              2) Trade for Haloti Ngata. The Ravens demand so much that you'd think he's a QB.
                              3) Re-sign for 7 years.
                              4) Edit Player -> Position changed to DT.

                              LOL @ messing with safeties when Ngata is there.

                                Probably because he didn't molest them.
