  • Sean Taylor Appreciation Thread

    I'm sure you have all heard, lets all just pray that he recovers. I hope the Redskins don't have to play on sunday, I don't care if it counts as a loss, we will be too emotional, Sean is the heart of the team.

      My favorite player ever since he arrived at Miami. My heart goes out to him & his entire family. I truly hope whoever did this is caught and brought to justice. There is never any reason for something like this to take place. This truly was a travesty. Sean is a guy starting to turn his life around after becoming a Daddy for the first time. I just pray and pray that he pulls through this ok, forget about the football aspect of this and ever playing again, I just hope that he is able to completely recover from this traumatic event. ONE LOVE SEAN... WE ARE ALL PULLIN FOR YOU!

          <+BOE> Scott, with Burfict's character concerns (whether legit or not) you think Pioli would draft him. :D
          <+ScottWright> Why not. Baldwin does need a sparring partner...

              This is terrible TERRIBLE news...I'm sorry that you guys are losing out on this force on the field, but more than that I'm sorry that the community itself is going to have to struggle through this. Obviously the team will suffer and so will the families. These kinds of things are why guns should not have ever been invented.

                  Rest in peace. He was one of the best safeties, and in my opinion, the best safety, and he was just 24 - too young... way too young. I pray for his family, especially his 1-year-old daughter and the murderer to be brought into justice.

                            Since idiots have ruined the Sean Taylor thread in the NFL forum, I will post this here, for those of us who can appreciate the man and mourn in our own respective ways. This is an interview with Ryan Clark who we all know was Sean's dude, I was sad when we let him go, I took out excerpts of the best parts, if you want to read the whole thing go here:http://blog.washingtonpost.com/redsk...l?hpid=topnews

                            Ryan Clark was probably Sean Taylor's closest friend during their two years together on the Washington Redskins (2004-2005). Sean made 53 NFL starts - 22 of them were with Clark by his side (rookie LaRon Landry has the second-most starts with Sean, just 9). Numerous Redskins teammates said that Clark was a calming, soothing influence on Taylor, and a devout Christian who played a role in Sean becoming more interested in his faith.

                            Clark helped Sean with in-game adjustments, was the player who reached out to him the most and the player who got through to him the most. When Clark was allowed to depart in free agency in March 2006, most Redskins veterans took it as a massive blow to team chemistry, and when Taylor struggled with new partner Adam Archuleta in 2006, some said privately that Taylor was brooding over the loss of his friend. (Taylor downplayed the importance of Clark to his development during training camp, when Sean made his only real public comments of the season, but a bevy of current and former teammates believe Clark was a tremendous positive force in his life. "I don't think anybody in the NFL is tied to each other," Taylor said at the time)

                            Before Sean's daughter was born, he would spend nights playing video games with Clark's kids. Sean's fiancée, Jackie, became close with Clark's wife. Taylor ate meals at Clark's house, and began to make positive changes in his life. And this morning, a friend of Taylor's fiancée called the Clarks - who now reside in Pittsburgh with Ryan a safety for the Steelers - to tell them their friend was dead.
                            So their last conversation came during Pittsburgh's preseason game at FedEx Field Aug. 18..

                            "We talked for 30 minutes before the game, just sharing stories and laughing," Clark said on his cellphone tonight, "and it was good man, and I thank the Lord for that last opportunity to let him know how I felt about him, and he let me know how he felt about me and we moved on from there. He seemed like he'd changes a lot and matured and he was playing incredible football this year."
                            "All you can do now is lean on your faith and I know Sean did get the opportunity to get right with God and he did get the opportunity to change his life and you have to take the approach that Sean would have taken and that's that he's moved on and he's going to be watching us all now, and if you have faith then you have to believe that he is better off there than he was here."

                            In my last conversation with Sean, in an impromptu group setting after that Aug. 16 practice, he did elaborate on his mindset coming into this season, one that resulted in what was clearly his best season ever.

                            "It's almost like we play a kid's game for a king's ransom, and if you don't take it seriously enough, one day you're going to say, 'Oh, I could have did this, or I could have did that.' " Taylor said. "I'll just say that I'm healthy right now, and I'm going into my fourth year, so why not do the best that I can? Whether it's eating right, whether it's training myself right, or whether it's studying harder. It's whatever I can do to better myself."
