What an absolute shame. Can't say more then we'll miss you. You went out like a man can only hope to, defending your family from harm. God Bless.

Re: Sean Taylor has died...

So, does the team retire jersey #21?

I think you have to. The way he went out is somewhat unprecedented. Leading the league in INT's. Had made his first probowl a year before... Wasn't doing ANYTHING wrong when he died. ( I hate the media right now) I think you have to retire the jersey. Don't wait a year, do it asap.

Hard to say. Redskins have many, many great players that they won't use the number but it's not officially retired, Jerg's #9, Riggin's #44 and until they made a mistake that cost them Bobby Mitchell in the front office the #43

Sammy Baugh's #33 is the only Officially Retired Redskins' number.

Redskins please don't let someone wear Sean Taylor's Number. The #21 is Sean Taylors!

Hails Skins and RIP Sean Taylor [my favorite current Redskin]

Well said.

Re: Sean Taylor has died...

Unbelievable. I went to bed late after reading every possible update and went to sleep encouraged. My wife just woke me to share the tragic news. I last felt this way when Dale Earnhardt Sr. was killed in Daytona. My heart and prayers go out to the Taylor family. God bless you Sean, we'll all miss you bro'.

Re: Sean Taylor has died...

Due to the unprecedented nature of this tragic event....I believe that it is an absolute necessity that Sean's jersey be retired....I understand that there were other greats whose numbers aren't officially retired but here is a young man who was gunned down in his home trying to protect his family....I say the word hero with some trepidation due to the current state of affairs in the Middle East....but at the very minimum he was serving as a hero to his family at the time...he was killed in the line of duty of being a protector of his family....If not this week....I would definitely want to see his number retired at the first home game of next year....

What will the team do financially for his family, especially his daughter? Can they at least put together a college fund or something?

ST was not a poor man. He must have several mil laying around. Unfortunately, that kind of thing has a tendency to get ugly when the family scrambles for the loot. Hopefully, that will not be the case.

Re: Sean Taylor has died...

I'm sure he had some sort of insurance, and if not, I can't see the players not pooling together some money for a fund.

Re: Sean Taylor has died...

My local NBC reported it as my wife was getting ready for work and woke me up. I turned on NFLN, ESPNews and then went through the national news channels. CNN confirmed the local news story but I still wouldn't believe. I still couldn't believe it until I saw a few more sites. There isn't more to say other than what's been said.
