By my count, there has only been one person that has been out of line with their posts in this thread. As expected all others have been respectful and thoughtful towards this tragic event. Maybe you should take a little more time to read each post before you go lumping everyone into the same category....


So Pmoney you want to get on my back with this? Well actually, I'm counting 3 posts by 3 different posters that I find highly offensive. The posters are: slow pitch, delorian00, and twisted sister. I don't know about you, but by using common addition, that adds up to 3, I don't know where you got that there was only 1 out-of-line post. My advice: maybe YOU should take a little more time to read each post...


I know nobody asked my opinion but I'll share it anyway.

If you give attention to those who will seek it by any means, it only justifies their actions in their minds. Let's not focus on the childish behavior of a few, but rather on the life lost and maybe think about what we can do in our own lives to make things better.

I, for one, intend to donate money and/or time to a local "at risk" youth organization in hopes that moving kids off the streets where they meet these derelicts helps future generations. It's a lofty goal since I don't necessarily do these kinds of things, but I think it's important.

RIP Sean Taylor :,-(

So instead of coming in here to give you're condolences and share you're thoughts you'd rather direct attention to yourself and call people out. Alright, to each his own...

Sheesh Pmoney do you always try to get the last word? Let it rest, what did SkinSFan ever do to you?

:-?

Frankly I'm disgusted by both of you for cluttering up this tragic thread with pointless banter. Is it too much to ask we keep this thread in memory of Sean Taylor and leave the hissy fits you guys want to have out of this thread?

Little bit of a hypocritical post don't you think? :-?

Guys, cool it. It would be a shame if a thread honoring the memory of a young, talented athlete was locked because of pointless bickering. If you can't resolve your dispute here, do it via PM or just drop it.

I would just like to share my favorite picture of Sean Taylor. This is my favorite because: 1. it is a fantastic action shot and 2. this play lives vividly in my mind. Although this picture was taken on Jan 1, 2006, I have a pretty clear memory of it. True, I don't remember most of the game, but I remember the play that counts, and my favorite Sean Taylor moment seen on television. You see, since I live in NY, Redskins games have been on sparingly--in reality I would like to view every single one of them. This game was the final regular season game for the Redskins-Eagles, the Redskins being winners of four straight. If they won this game, they would make the playoffs. As noted above, although my recollection of this game isn't perfect, I remember the Sean Taylor interception. As soon as he caught it I jumped up, but kept on watching as he went on to score, adding a dive at the end. I remember feeling like I was on the top of the world, cloud 9, I was soooo happy. God knows how many times I jumped around my house, and also as a result of the game, my voice was hoarse for a day. Sean Taylor sealed the playoffs for us that game (and made our season complete). I will always remember that dive, and that feeling of greatness and perfection. Memories can never be taken away from us, that's why we have them to revisit the good and positive things that define who we are. Thank you Sean Taylor for all the memories, you will never be forgotten. Rest In Peace.

Great post SkinSFan22. I watched the play on RedskinsNation just a couple minutes ago and choked up. I'm honestly still in denial of the whole deal. The game on Sunday vs the Bills is going to be quite something.

:,-(

There's rumors of Portis wearing a #21 jersey in memory of Taylor, also the Redskins might play the first defensive play with only 10 men on the field... That would be quite something as well, again these are just rumors floating around ES but both would be quite compelling things to see on Sunday.

I heard the Portis rumor floating around my school in southern Maryland, but not the 10 men on the field one. That would be an incredible tribute.

That would be amazing if both of those things happened. All I know is Portis and his U boys are going to mess some people up (not trying to make a joke of this death, Taylor was my favorite NFL Player ever since he entered the league and throughout college I loved to watch him). On Facebook I created a group of Sean Taylor R.I.P which I think is actually pretty good. This video I also saw of him is amazing. It's called Sean Taylors Highlights most of them are from 2005, but I think it is quite a show to watch.
