Was Landry channeling Taylor tonight?

I swore I thought that was #21 out there a few times tonight with the way he was flying around. Yeah the penalty was dumb, but I still like that kill shot mentality.

Re: Was Landry channeling Taylor tonight?

That hit gave me the chills. It was kind of freaky how ST like it was. It was great seeing him as a force...striking a little bit of fear into some of those receivers.


He may get a nice fine for that hit....

I totally agree. I mentioned this in the game thread. He was on a mission tonight.

Probably has more to do with the position change then anything wouldn't you think?

But yeah he looked pretty Tayloresque out there, especially that one hit, that is SO something Sean woulda done as a rookie.

Agreed. Good to see him laying the wood, even if it was a penalty.

Re: Was Landry channeling Taylor tonight?

Just got back from the game and Im glad you guys noticed this too.
When he got flagged for that hit, which was ticky tack IMO, I actually turned to my buddy and commented how prior to that Sean Taylor was the only player I ever remember getting flagged for "hitting a defenseless receiver."
Taylor will never EVER be replaced but it'd be nice to think Landry can come close to being that good one of these days.

Re: Was Landry channeling Taylor tonight?

This is a weird thing to say but it made me feel a little better to watch that reciever get his ass handed to him. Penalty, I didn't care, it brought a smile to my face.

Re: Was Landry channeling Taylor tonight?

I agree. I didnt mind Landry getting the late hit. But....he does need to work on his hands during the off season. but best believe that he saw how Sean Taylor worked in practice and will try to duplicate him as much as possible. I hope(even though he will never be fully replaced)

Re: Was Landry channeling Taylor tonight?

The best play he made, IMO, was when he flashed in front of Berrian to prevent the late TD. That showed the elite skills that made him the 6th pick.

Re: Was Landry channeling Taylor tonight?

Landry has been flying around the last two weeks. He has shown great burst to the ball and a knack for being in the right place at the right time. Two great attributes that you love to see in a rookie.

Personally, I don't really mind the penalty. It tells upcoming opponents that we may be without 21, but that doesn't mean its safe to go over the middle just yet.

It's worth mentioning that I thought Reed Doughty seemed to play well, too.

Eerily it seems like we already have Taylor's replacement (it hurts to type that) in place. Landry was everywhere, could/should have had 2 interceptions and was blowing people up all over the field.. Next year, with a whole offseason getting reps at FS, he's gonna be a star.
