Gonna get beat up, but here goes. It is optional for every player. The Pats are unified as a team and do things of this nature together (for good or bad). They could have worn both, but IMO they probably would rather keep Hill's memory alive when no one else in the NFL was. I think trying to compare tragedies of this nature is disgusting, but no doubt Sean's murder affects us more as Skins fans and NFL fans more because Sean was such a dominating player and fun to watch.
Personally, I feel that Darrent Williams should have had his number on helmets for at least the first game.
And before people ask, no I don't like the Pats.

Re: Patriot Helmet Stickers

Have the pats been wearing 91 all season or all of a sudden?

And Hill was not nearly as well liked or important to his repective team as the pro bowler Taylor. As you say, it's a lot different to be shot and killed during the season as well.

Re: Patriot Helmet Stickers

Jsarno -- ask the pats that. What a ridiculous statement. Hills life wasn't as important or well liked. Come on. You don't know if Hill was liked. The Taylor thing is a tragedy, but so is Darrent Williams and Marquise Hill.

If teams don't want to wear stickers every week, so be it. Did the Redskins wear the sticker of other players that died? The answer is no. It's just a sticker when it boils down. It's not a big deal. Many of these players have absolutely no connection to Sean Taylor, and those that do can honor him in many ways, including the sticker.

Well I wouldn't say he was not nearly as well liked. I'm sure he was very well liked by his teammates. I've never heard otherwise.

Well, he was well liked by his team, but not a lot of the league, like Taylor. That was my point on that. Even the casual fan knew Sean Taylor, but only the die hard pats fans knew Hill.

Daseal, take it easy, I am not devalueing a life here. Just pointing out why the #21 was on everyone's helmets but #91 was not. No need to get offended over nothing.

Jsarno, I disagree. You can't compare or rank tragedies, but obviously a player being murdered in his own home on a Sunday night is going to strike a chord across the league. It is not about popularity at all, would love to know how you came to find out that "even the casual fan knew Sean Taylor." I guess you mean after his passing.

Re: Patriot Helmet Stickers

I don't think this is such a huge deal or indicative of whether or not anyone has class.

Re: Patriot Helmet Stickers

Yeah, I don't dislike any team any more for not wearing it. As emotional as that MNF game was last Monday with Ray Lewis, Ed Reed, and Willis McGahee all paying tribute, the Ravens aren't wearing the 21 sticker tonight. I know we're all emotional over Sean, but as long as the Redskins are properly honoring him I'm okay. I'm not worried about anyone else except our guys.

Don't know about that -- Marquise Hill lost his life while rescuing a drowning friend. That strikes a chord, too.

The hatred and jealousy that some of you have for the Patriots is staggering. I only wish our franchise were run with as much competence, preparation, skill, imagination, and long-term planning.

Not that it matters, but he didn't die "rescuing a drowning friend." He died because he was jet skiing without a life jacket. And the "friend" if I remember correctly, was a woman that was not his wife/fiancee.
