Have those kids (adults now) still not been to trial?
Wow. That was powerful. I think someone just started cutting onions in my apt
That loss still hurts. The injustice of it all just stinks.. all because of some ****ing thieves he was taken from his family and us.. it ain't right
Barry Cofield is LEGIT... no more nonsense about we need a "real" NT... HE IS THE REAL DEAL!!!! He goes to the Pro Bowl this year, book it!!!
Thank you for posting this! I caught the end of this on ESPN while sitting at a bar, so I couldn't hear it or see it all. So tragic. Great job by ESPN though.

Yeah, I saw that this afternoon. Started tearing up and went back to that day in my mind. It is just one of those days that I am never going to forget. Just tragic.
Is it just me or do you guys constantly run into non-'Skins fans who think we all overrate his ability? It's not that people think he wasn't good, but at the time of this tragedy he was really only barely scratching the surface of his prime years. He only barely started getting the kind of attention other safeties of his era like Reed and Troy get.
I always saw Sean as having a combination of the best parts of Reed & Troy. He could lay the biggest hits, yet cover the entire deep zone of the field. Who can forget that day against Green Bay where he had 3 INTs on Favre, but had his hands on a few more that were very near INTs as well.
I know in the big picture this is much bigger than football, but because this happened so early in his career I think it sucks that most non-'Skins fans won't ever realize how special a player he was going to end up being had this tragedy not happened.
Listen to my podcast Retro Flick Fillet: Taking a second look at movies that deserve it or don't: http://idiotpod.libsyn.com/
The year Sean died was his third year in the NFL I believe. In this year, he led the league in interceptions and he had only played 1/4 of the games. Even after his death, he still led the league in interceptions up until week 15 of the NFL when finally, someone took over his top spot. Thats crazy. The kicker is, he was also 2nd on the team in tackles before he got injured and obviously was the most feared man in the NFC. I live in Steelers country, and they love Polamalu and are always talking about how great he is. BUT, the one thing that almost every real STeeler/football fan around here will tell me once they find out Im a Redskins fan is this: "Man, Sean Taylor would have been in the Hall of Fame, its so sad what happened to him." So I know that they recognized how great he was. At 24 years old, he could have been the greatest ever to play the position had he survived.
Love Tana. He's probably my favorite Skin behind RG3 right now. He's a real dude. Hope he retires a Skin.
