Taylor in trouble

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...2004Jul11.html

It this all bad luck and coincidence or are there underlying issues here? I heard he was a good kid with a great work ethic

thats a good point, maybe when I read that he had a great work ethic, it was just character inflating nonsense, but i sure hope not, I thought and still think he could be the key to the defense

that was in the article, and actually after looking over it again, it seems as if Taylor's situation was not as bad, he rushed right back to San Diego when everyone figured out what was going on. Here is my question, if it is a rookie symposium, and he is there the first day, doesnt someone tell him about the fine? what the hell are they doing there? (notice they are at a resort and spa)

Sounds to me like this kid better get off his rear end and get with the program. Gibbs and the crew will be ticked if he holds out, and if he doesn't get an agent soon, he'll be holdling out!!! :frusty:

Ok, lets say he is being young and immature and not making great decisions (he is)....Who better to knock him into shape (mentally) than Gibbs and company???

He will be fine...

He should be fine but come on. Get serious and find an agent and get signed. Granted he could miss the first week or two and be OK, but he could be that much better if he is in on time. Regardless we ought to get a pool to see how much sooner he will be signed then KWII.

atleast he's not in as much trouble as a former teammate of his from Miami, Antrel Rolle.

From Mort's chat today:
Trent, DC: Mort, who is advising Sean Taylor? I have never seen a rookie wait this long to get an agent. Does this kid want to get paid or give Gibbs a headache?

Chris Mortensen: I was told by somebody I trust that anybody selecting Taylor needed to do a lot of digging on the guy. That suggests he has some flaws, but let's give him the benefit of doubt until we see the end result.


From PFW Chat on Tuesday:
Dennis (Omaha): Redskins chose Taylor over Winslow. Seems like Taylor has given the 'Skins more trouble than they had expected in 3 months (leaving rookie symposium early, missing numerous voluntary practices, his reaction to rookie hazing, firing his agent and not hiring a new one regardless of the short time to negotiate before camp). Did they make a mistake, is he going to hold out, and any other thoughts?

Dan Arkush: You're not the only one asking these questions, Dennis. He said he had to leave the symposium to avoid being evicted from his apartment. What's up with that? The kid needs a solid agent who can nail down a good deal quickly for him. Gibbs won't take any guff.


The more I read and hear, the more concerned I get. As much as I want to give him the benefit of the doubt and have rose colored glasses on, where there's smoke there's fire.. Let's hope that putting the pads on refocuses him.

SKINSnCANES, help us out here, what is going on with Taylor??

I want to give him the benefit of the doubt for now, but I have to be honest and say I'm a little concerned.

So far he's giving the impression he's a bit of a headcase, I really hope this isn't Westbrook part II.
