Taylor - What is up with this moron?

Does anyone else get the since that Sean Taylor is better described as being Warren Sapp in a safety's body? Now either he got a great education at UM and knows what he is doing (highly doubtful) or he spent 90% of his days sitting on a park bench half baked (highly probable).

I don't know fellas, but he is quickly becoming the problem child of the NFL. Switching agents, firing people, total disregard for the NFL as a whole.

He is starting to worry me! Anyone else feel this way?

No, I don't feel that way at all. How is switching agents criteria for being a problem child? Now, if he was doing the kind of stuff that Darrell Russell has done, I would have a different view of him, but until then, I see him as a quiet guy who showed up for camp on time (gotta give him a ton of credit for that), both pluses in my book. I think that people are trying to make too much out of nothing.

The only ones he is creating a problem for are his agents (and maybe himself). He came in on time, got back on the field ASAP after twisting his knee, signs autographs, has not done anything negative toward the team. What is your problem with him??? He does need to mature a bit, but that has not hurt the team as far as I can tell. Maybe you should stop reading all the negative articles about him. Remember, guys like that jerk Boswell in the WP are pissed because he won't talk to them after their much earlier negative articles. Screw them. Be a fan. If he screw the team over somehow, THEN get on his case.

Of course I would feel different about it, but he didn't hire the Postons. That would change the whole situation completely and has no bearing on his current status.

It's like me saying I don't like you because you could have chosen to be a Cowboys fan.

Total disregard for the NFL? Problem child?

How?

Last time I checked he's in camp and practicing. His off the field issues have been very minor in comparison to others. QC snorting coke, Randy McMichael beating down his pregnant wife, etc. Taylor is a blip on the radar compared to these other guys.

lol, Matt & I agree for once!

I would go so far as to say that his off the field problems aren't even that. They're personal matters at best. He showed up to camp on time, gives his all on the field, and seems to be a team player. What more could you ask for? Yeah, he missed the rookie symposium - big deal, I don't see where he's a worse person or player for it. So what if he didn't have an agent for 3 months - he did get to camp on time. So what if he fired his old agent - he's in camp under contract and the new agent (rumored to be Rosenhaus) is one that gets along with Dan Snyder. I really can't seem to fabricate any downsides to this guy like other people can.

Yeah I really think we're all jumping the gun on Taylor.

I think we've all been a bit guilty of it at some point this offseason. But when you take a step back and look at the big picture, things really aren't as bad as they could be.

Taylor has had an "odd" beginning to his career here, but to say he's a problem child is really a stretch.

Why would you call him a "moron" ? He's simply a rookie adjusting to life in the NFL. So maybe he has a hard time trusting people, and he's a little shy. But we can't judge him until he sets foot on the field. If all this off-field nonsense affects his play, then we can start criticizing him. For now, lets just hope that he gets it together. Theres nothing wrong with being a little worried....thats natural. But we can't start criticizing him right off the bat.

A Potential Proble ~ Taylor

I think you really have to look at one thing. 1st off it is not wise to comment on what we don't know such as sitting on a park bench half baked. But what we defiently know is said by him in his post contract signning news conference. Commenting on where and why he left the NFL Rookie Symposiym "You just wrote a story without asking my side, so I just won't give it." Then a question of why not just clear it up? "Why clear it up if you wanted to clear it up you should of came another way before you put it onthe street you know you know, should of came and got it from the horses mouth, and it would have been a better story." They weren't looking for a better story just the real story. Snide remarks and not just saying I would prefer to not comment is rude. The Redskins are claiming they drafted a player based on his character number 1. Well I believe his character is in question and if you doubt it then listen to the news conference and you tell me.

Gibbs would not have drafted him if there was any question about his character.

Taylor doesn't owe us any sort of explanation for anything. Leave the guy alone and let him just play football. After all, that's what we are paying him for, not for his public speaking abilities.

Having been the other person sitting on that curbside next to Portis and Taylor when Boswell told Taylor he was going to write an article about him, and having spoken with Taylor myself, I can tell you that he really is a rather shy person, and that it seems like the more the media presses him, the more he draws up into his shell. It's simply a defense mechanism, and perhaps a little bit of youthful willfulness, and I think he's just anxious to get out on the field during an actual game and bring all this idle speculation to a screeching halt. That's where Taylor intends to make his statements. He's tried to make that clear repeatedly, but apparently, the media hasn't been listening. In Taylor's opinion, none of the other things that have happened this offseason should matter if he goes out on the field and makes good things happen. Yes, his actions have been rather unpredictable and inexplicable, but how many of us haven't behaved in the exact same manner at his age?

Taylor is a young man who is going to do things on his terms and on his schedule. If and when he feels like talking to the media, he will do it, and there's nothing anyone can do about that-- not Tom Boswell, not Dan Daly, not Joe Gibbs, not Gregg Williams, not Clinton Portis, not LaVar Arrington, and certainly not me. If the media wants Taylor to talk, they are going to have to play by his rules, like it or not. Writing negative articles about him and jumping to conclusions about his personality, his character and his agenda, is certainly not going to help. While the members of the media that Taylor has shunned point at him and accuse him of being a spoiled, immature athlere, they don't realize that they are behaving in just as spoiled and immature a manner. Let's get one thing straight: all of this Taylor-bashing is not about his playing ability, it's about Taylor not playing the game by the media's rules. Taylor pissed them off, and now they're pissing back. Very mature, objective and rational approach, huh?

I am not the slightest bit worried about Sean Taylor. Sounds like you must have alot of time on your hands (are you on a park bench? :cool-smil )to be scared about this non-issue or you just get scared easy.
You might be one of those fans that wanted the Redskins to draft Kellen Winslow II. So you are bitter they did not draft your boy and have nothing but hate towards Sean Taylor. That is fine, you are entitled to your opinion.
