Thinking of Sean Taylor today

Recommended Posts

I remember 12 years we won 17-16 thanks to Joe Gibbs having a brain cramp with his timeouts at the end of the game. I remember Sean laying out Moorman in the Pro Bowl.  Was it dirty?Taylor seemed like an awesome player and today I will remember him. The fact he was killed by thugs in his own home is among the scariest ways to die.

Hes still my all time favorite player

 

People say Aaron Williams played with wrecklessness and it ended his career (i think Landry is a dirty pos)....how was Sean Taylor any different in his style of play?

Senseless killing. I can’t believe it’s been 12 years. 
 

Appreciate life, it can all be over in one blink.

I remember when this happened. It is a darn shame. Taylor was part of the new breed of safeties entering the league. Big, fast mean and hard hitting.

Sean could have ended his game as one of the top 3 dbs ever to play. Rip. No one will come out of the draft with his measurables and range in a long time. Probably ever.

A bunch of low lives.

Were the time outs the reason they lost? I thought lindell made the unofficial field goals right before the time outs were called?

Gibbs called timeouts on back to back attempts. It was unsportsmanlike conduct 15 yds.

Sean Taylor’s hit on Moorman was absolutely dirty and ridiculous by today’s standards.

Especially dirty considering it was the PRO-BOWL and there is an unspoken code about not injuring players. And Mr Bad-Ass is going to take out a punter? Not impressed.

Exactly. Sick dude, taking out a punter at the head when he’s running a trick play in the exhibition All Star game. I must have missed the last time someone got celebrated in the NBA All Star game for taking out Lebron’s knees when he’s trying to do a 420 dunk.

 

The fact that Sean Taylor is celebrated for that hit has always been super odd to me. You know even Moorman was even pissed about it. Why else run over and tell him good hit?

Straight up baller.  As a U fan, it was easy to love everything about his game and him off the field as well.  Such a shame.

Yes he did.

Absolutely drilled both.

 

I was at that game and my fondest memory was after Lindell hit those two filed goals, I was watching Greg Williams, the then defensive coordinator of the redskins, standing on the sidelines, with nobody within 25 yards of him, pouting like a ten year old, having just given up the game winning drive, with a crucial pass from Trent Edwards to Josh Reed.

 

Greg Williams is the single individual I despise the most in the NFL, and I loved watching him pouting, alone.

Lol  his tenure with the Redskins was post Buffalo, right? That had to be a tough week for the Skins though..it would be like Hyde or White dying. There is a brotherhood on the field.

The hit was not dirty.  The form was text book.  Moorman did not even think it was dirty.  Moorman also congratulated Taylor on the hit.  There was not even a flag thrown.  If you are going to run a trick play in an all star game, you risk having your punter get hit. That is what happened.

Was at the game and was my first game in person for any NFL game. My bro is a Skins fan so I thought I would get us tickets and see the DC sights. Was a somber game as Taylor died a few days before and Skins fans were pretty subdued, understandly. Also, for my bro was his first game to see his team. What was meant to be two bro's attending their first game for their respective teams was a muted affair but I cheered for the Bills like it was January 3rd 1993. My bro took it well but got so wasted a total stranger drove him back to our hotel after I tried to tell him we were going the right way but he didn't believe me lol. Good times. RIP Sean Taylor
