As much as I like to trash Cowboys and degrade the Dallas players, I remember how considerate and respectful they were about Taylor after he died, so I feel as though we owe a bit to them when discussing their players within the context of Sean Taylor's death. I dislike Roy Williams as much as anyone when the Cowboys are playing the Redskins, but my gut tells me that Taylor probably respected Williams as a player, and we know Roy respected Sean.

Re: Roy Williams Filling in for Sean Taylor in Pro Bowl

I think all Redskins in the pro bowl should wear 21....since our team cannot represent him.
I do not understand why anyone other than a redskin should play in place of Sean Taylor.....especially not from the cowboys...that just sucks...

I do not want to see a cowboy wearing a redskins helmet, number or jersey...if he makes it as an alternate...he should play as himself.

NFL network just said Ken Hamlin will replace ST. Not Roy Williams.

Hamlin replaces Taylor in the starting lineup. Williams replaces him on the roster.

I definitely am. I can't explain it and it's sick, but I keep imagining what the night of his death was like. Images of Taylor gasping for air, Jackie covered in blood, the baby crying, Taylor bleeding on a gurney, flatlining in the OR, and squeezing the nurses hand haunt my brain even though I didn't experience anything first hand. I keep asking myself, "Did he suffer" and "Was he semi-conscious when he squeezed that doctor's or nurse's hand?" It's crazy and it sucks. I will never forget the feeling I had when I read on CNN.com that Sean had been shot. I still don't think I've fully come to terms with the fact that we will never see him in uniform again.

I keep thinking that both Sean Taylor and my roomate from college died this past fall the same way; by getting shot in femoral artery and bleeding to death. Up until three months ago I wouldn't have had a clue what the femoral artery was or that getting shot in the leg could kill you. Both died as heroes and I hope won't ever be forgotten.

Re: Roy Williams Filling in for Sean Taylor in Pro Bowl

I agree with everyone that said they gained some respect for the Cowboys after Sean's death, and off the field I know how much respect Roy Williams had for Sean so I'm sure he will do something special to honor him. RW may suck in coverage but he's one of the classier players in the league.

Re: Roy Williams Filling in for Sean Taylor in Pro Bowl

I am on board with the whole "gained new respect for the cowboys and Roy Williams" sentiment. As much fun as it is to hate the Cowboys and their players, I bear them no real ill-will. Almost every Cowboy fan who has posted on this site has been respectfully contentious. At games, Cowboy fans are, at times, obnoxious as they root for their team but, from my experience, rarely are they assholes.

With respect to ST's death, I think it indicative of the fan base that, while both Cowboy and Giants fans have come on this site and expressed their remorse and respect, Eagles fans have been nowhere to be seen. Personally, heresy though it may be, I have a great deal more hate for Eagle's fans then Cowboy's fans. It is my sincerest hope that we can win the SB, if for no other reason than it will cause Philly fans to implode and sink into a bile ridden swamp of envy and bitterness.

Sorry for the hijack - to repeat: Props to Roy Williams for his comments.

I got that calendar for my birthday. I had a discernible moment of silence when I saw Sean on the January page. I told my wife it still feels weird that he's gone.
