What is the point of a post like this?

Re: Thank You Sean Taylor Thread...

Let me ask you this dmek: why do you have the Redskins' 70th anniversary patch as your icon?
My guess is that it's probably because you like that it reminds you of all the great times you have had in the past as a Redskins fan. It makes you proud to have followed a team for as long as you have; through thick and thin. And I assume that you like to talk about the good old times when the Redskins were a Super Bowl contender year in and year out.
You could probably go on all day and night about the beating the dolphins for that first ring. Or Doug Williams tearing the Broncos apart. Or the blitz knocking Jim Kelly to his ass time and again for that third title. What a bunch of great memories those guys gave us.

But hell, that was all in the past, so just move on. Get yourself a new icon and forget about all that crap. You didn't know any one on those teams so why should you care at all? It's time to let it all go and just move on. Screw the fact that the old teams brought some happiness into our lives. There's no reason to reminisce about them or to keep talking about what it was like to watch them play. We should just put it out of our minds and move on.

Right?

Don't mean to hop on the "Hate On dmek" bandwagon, but sometimes I feel like you're just heartless, and comments like this prove it. Unnecessary

Re: Thank You Sean Taylor Thread...

This is crazy. I hadn't really thought about Taylor that much until this morning on the way to work it suddenly hit me again. And I log on to the site, and this thread is revived.

Sean Taylor is gone, he's gone. We're talking about one of the best (if not the best) player our favorite NFL team has seen in the past 20+ years perhaps. And he's gone. There are no second chances for him. He can't "unretire" like Favre, he can't "clean up his act" like Adam Jones, he can't "rehab his way back to health" like Carols Rogers. He's gone. There won't be another bonecrushing hit on Patrick Crayton to secure a historic come-from-behind win on MNF at Dallas, there won't be another leap into the endzone to saor us into the playoffs, there won't be another one-handed interception tip-toeing down the sidelines. None of that will ever happen again with Sean Taylor. He's gone.

But he's not forgotten. You don't always need to let go to move on.

Yep, the finality of it all is what is so crushing. Whenever I see highlights of him I just can't believe it's over. It really sucks.

Re: Thank You Sean Taylor Thread...

Its gonna be really weird not seeing 21 lurking in the defensive backfield this year...always think about how i wish he was still here. Its tough to grasp that he wont be around head hunting anymore.

On the bright side i really think he had a big impact on LaRon, more than ppl think. I think LaRon saw how it was done with his time with sean and said to himself i wanna be like that. If you watch LaRon play he reminds me of sean, not just the actual gameplay but also that "swagger" and that attitude that he doesnt care who you are hes gonna hit you in the mouth. thats what i loved most about sean he was never intimidated and didnt take anything from anyone.

Im in no way saying LaRon is the next SeanT but the closest damn thing ive seen, I like to think of him as Seans protege. Watching him kind of helps me deal with no 21 anymore. As a result dirty thirty and portis have become my favoritie skins

Re: Thank You Sean Taylor Thread...

I dont think it has been said or expressed the impact that Sean had on LaRon just because of LaRon's quiet off the field nature. I mean think about it how many interviews has he given? just quiet and keeps to himself and handles his business very well on the field.

Re: Thank You Sean Taylor Thread...

I'm definitely looking to #30 to pick up where #21 left off. He certainly has a similar amount of potential. It's funny when we drafted him alot of people said "another safety?"

Of course nobody could have predicted what would happen with Taylor but that pick of Landry sure looks even better now.

I definitely agree with what you're saying. I was actually one of those people that said "another safety? We already have S.T.", but as is a lot of the time, in hindsight that turned out to be one of the best picks we've made in recent years. I never would've anticipated losing S.T. that suddenly though, it still hurts to this day and I can easily say I'm still not over it.

I'm not gonna jump on the Dmek is an insensitive a-hole bandwagon even though I don't agree with his comments. Losing someone just like that hurts deeply, it doesn't matter whether I knew him or not, which I didn't. I felt connected to him, almost a superstition of sorts, that if I didn't root hard enough for the 'Skins he and the rest of the team would suffer. It's like when women ask men why they get so excited when we get up and shout, Yesssssss!!!!!!!!! when a player makes a game ending interception to win the game for us.

I still love watching all his videos on Youtube, and I still enjoy looking at all the various pictures and everything on the web. I don't think so much about what could've been as it is celebrating all his accomplishments on and off the field. I wouldn't say not a day goes by where I don't think about him but I do think about him a lot.
