Why is Sean Taylor such an Enigma?

Sean Taylor rarely ever speaks to the media, and even when he does he avoids answering many questions, sometimes it seems like he doesn't even talk to his teammates. Taylor has built quite the reputation of being somewhat of an enigma. So the question is why is Sean so mysterious?

Personally I love the fact that Taylor is the way he is, rarely do you ever see such a professional athlete act in the manner that Sean Taylor does. I love it, and hope he keeps it up.

I would love to get everyone's take on what they think of Taylor's personality.

I think he is shy by nature and then all the attention for his misdeeds probably shuttered him away even more.

Eh, I'm glad he's not a big mouth anyway. I think that is part of the reason I like him so much. He talks with his play on the field.

Re: Why is Sean Taylor such an Enigma?

I think it's just because he doesn't want his words to portray him in a negative view. Sometimes the media will take what a person says and cut out parts of it so the person looks bad. That and he just doesn't like media attention, and he's not contractually obliged to talk to them.

All I can say is I'm really glad he lets his action do the talk instead of his mouth..

Re: Why is Sean Taylor such an Enigma?

Honestly,
his mysterious thug demeanor combined with his amazing athleticism and punishing hits,

w.o. exaggeration

He is my favorite athlete of all time.

Cannot wait to see him play this year.

Re: Why is Sean Taylor such an Enigma?

I dont think he's an enigma at all. In the interviews I have seen, he just seem like a normal dude who chosses not to talk to the media. Doesnt the whole Broncos O-line not talk to the media? Its not that uncommon, im sure every team has got one.

Re: Why is Sean Taylor such an Enigma?

I think he still talks to teammates. He just doesn't seem to like the media. They haven't been very nice to him in the past. I'm not all that sure that he is such a quiet person with people. I got a chance to speak with him for a few minutes before and he is really one of the nicest players i've spoken to. And I agree with NM, when he does talk to the media he seems really normal. However, there was an article a few years back that said that he would spend a lot of time in his grandmother's house reading quietly in his room.

He comes from the University of Miami, the "thug demeanor" is part of the package.

Re: Why is Sean Taylor such an Enigma?

Yeah I don't think he has a problem talking to his teammates either, he does share that "U" bond with Portis and Moss. I'm sure most of the people on this board have seen that picture of him out partying with Portis and Moss. That and his teammates have never had a problem vouching for him.

Yeah I don't think he has a problem talking to his teammates, but it just seems like he is very distant.

Re: Why is Sean Taylor such an Enigma?

no need for words from what i have seen on the field. he does a lot more talking on the field too. gettin in peoples heads after he lays them out.


he is very myserious. i feel like i have never gotten to know and understand why he is the way he is, unlike someone like TO. one thing is for sure, he dont like TO.
