Re: Best Safety in the League???

Reed and Palamalu are the #1/2 right now. Ed Reed has the potential to be the best saftey ever. That being said, so does Sean Taylor, but he needs some more time to evolve, but I love the man. He is already a game changer.

Re: Best Safety in the League???

Dude, there best RB ever was a 40 year old Emmitt Smith (maybe Larry Centers). The O-line is suspect, the QB position is mediocre and the D is bottom half of the league. Every team in the NFL has talent...

Don't start blabbing about AZ, they barely beat SF in Mexico. You must be a former kicker.

Why is it that I badmouth other teams (specifically our biggest rival and a former division foe) and I take heat.

If you don't bleed burgundy and gold don't reply to my posts because you don't understand. I am tired of the bandwagon bunch.

Give me Dexter running through the line and crushing Danny White....Give me Darryl Green jumping over the guy at Soldier Field...Give me Timmy Smith setting records which still stand.... Give meClark breaking away from Minnesotta in overtime...

If you bark in my direction you better know your shit.

Re: Best Safety in the League???

Adrian Wilson plays for the Cardinals. He is one of the better strong safeties in the league, he's a big hitter like Taylor and a great player against the run. Kinda like Roy Williams except that Wilson is more of a complete package, because he is good at defending the pass unlike Williams. Sean Taylor is not the best safety in the league, I'd say Ed Reed is probably the best, Polamalu is up there, although i've heard he's not that great in pass coverage.

Lenny P's latest article is about the new school safeties, yet no mention of Sean Taylor. Interesting.

Of course I am biased but I just cannot take an article about safeties seriously if Taylor is not mentioned. There is no other safety feared by the opposition more than him.

I remember the week leading up to the St. Louis game Torry Holt was on the John Thompson show. He made it a point to mention that when he lines up he is aware of Taylor at all times. It was no coincidence that every time Holt caught a ball he dropped to the turf immediately.

I truly think that Len P.'s bias against Snyder and the Redskins has had a negative impact on his work and has diminished his credibility.

Now, he isn't nearly as bad as Sally Jenkins who's articles on the Redskins should not be published. I knew that every week when they lost I would see an article from her front and center. At least she did own up that she was wrong at the end of the season after she blasted them following Denver, New York, etc...

Re: Best Safety in the League???

Agreed.

I disagree with the quote that he can't read the offenses that well. He certainly recognizes the run and any time a ball is thrown in his area he looks like the receiver. He has been burned on some trick plays but so do most teams (How many times did Pittsburgh make playoff teams look stupid?).

He has only been in the league two years. I don't know how you can compare Polmolive, Dawkins, Ed Reed etc....

Fast forward five years and he will be the prototype.

Re: Best Safety in the League???

In my opinion, Sean Taylor is not among the top Safeties. Physically, his is the best. No safety in the league can do what he does...

BUT, there were too many plays where he was outta position and we gave up a big play because of it. Just my opinion, but for his physical talent he isn't doing near what he should be on the field.

That said, I'd rather have him on the team that any other safety in the league...because he's that physical, makes huge hits, scares recievers, and is gonna get better at everything as he goes.

Re: Best Safety in the League???

his speed helps erase his mistakes, so there's no downside to letting him learn on the job.

Re: Best Safety in the League???

Taylor may be prone to biting on playaction (not uncommon for most young, aggressive players) but he's certainly better in coverage than Roy Williams.

Re: Best Safety in the League???

Taylor will be at the Pro Bowl next year. I still don't understand (especially since fans PICK the Bowl) why Taylor's "Scare Factor" isn't reason enough to put him on there.

Re: Best Safety in the League???

I think sportswriters and the NFL in general are reluctant to give Sean Taylor's his respect and credit due to his off field problems. If he is able to be exonerated of the allegations against him, he will begin to get the accolades he deserves. I feel that sportswriters and the NFL executives are afraid that Taylor may be jailed and will project a negative image. Until he is clear of all the charges, the NFL is staying clear from him.

Look I agree both have coverage problems and taylor can be call better at coverage not because of his recognition but because of his recovering speed.

Now I don't agree when somebody says taylor is the most feared Safety in the league (and I know you're going to name the hits on Gleen and Clayton so don't bother) because there're other Safetyes known for their vicious hits Wilson,Dawkins and offcourse Williams who even before Taylor arriaved was and still is considered as the most feared hitting safety in the legue and it's what has giving him a spot in the past 3 Pro Bowls. Didn't you saw the hit he layed 2 Chambers Yesterday.

Just ask TO who is the Safety he most respects and as someone said about taylor that holt allways tries to see where he is the same is said about Williams.

I'm not saying Williams is the best safety at all I believe that place is for Ed Reed and polamalu going second I believe he is in the top 5 he has seen lost the past couple of years since Woodson got hurth and retire because he doesn't have quality coverage help (no real FS) and is trying to be and do a lot more that what he's asked for.

When he played best is when he was closer to the line and covering the middle passes and Woodson covering the long ones that's how no WR wanted to go to the middle.

But anyway, Taylor has a lot of potential and talent but he should be further in his development I don't know why some say that Ed reed, Polamalu or Williams are older or anything they only been i nthe league 4 years (polamalu 3) and they all we're selected for their Pro Bowl on their second year and consider top class since those years.

He is good can be great has the speed, talent and abilitty he just need to be more consistent I can see him in the pro Bowl next year if he continues playing and developing.
