Re: Shouldn't Sean Taylor.............

without a doubt he should be on the list. hes at the top of mine. the man threw his body around sideline to sideline. he was wreckless and just had that swagger that intimidated ppl in itself, as if his head busting hits werent enough. LaRon has learned a few things from sean, you can tell, that swagger and attitude is one. I like to look at LaRon as Sean's protege so to speak.

IMO you don't have to have a long career to be considered one of the most feared tacklers/hitters of all time. All it takes is a year of film. Any questions? Just ask any Offensive players/coaches around the league.

I was watching the top ten most feared tacklers on the NFL Network and they had some pretty hard hitters on that list. Now the way I see it, Taylor should be on that list. A short career may keep you out of the HOF, but it damn sure doesn't keep you from being feared.

I just don't think that the NFL celebrates his extraordinary talent, if only in NFL films. When I say celebrate, they don't have to talk about him every game, but I think NFL films should at least show some of the unhuman like plays he did make in his short time here.

What better way to show kids in the future the diamond in the rough that the NFL once had. I don't think that people really know how big, strong and fast that this guy was. AND HE WAS STILL LEARNING!

The only way to see a safety like that was to create him on Madden. If talent was a gemstone, Taylor's would surely be on display at a heavily guarded museum for all to see.

We may be old, the next time we see a player like that come along again.

He should be on that list!

No ,the list is long and can be held to different opinions.

Harry Carson,Mike Singeltary ,Mike Curtis ar just a couple that I think are better than John Lynch and a few others.That in no way diminishs how good ST was ,but he was young and just did not play long enough,he has not earned the accolades some fans want to give him.

This is my point. Not to be funny or anything, but remember when Dallas beat the Skins in Dallas on that long pass from Testeverde to Crayton down the sidelines for the winning touchdown, with like 30 seconds in the game?

Well if you go back and look at it, ST was almost at the line of scrimmage when the play started, but when Crayton caught that ball, he almost got back there in time. Now at first, I didn't think about it too much until I watched the highlights of that game later on.

I thought to myself............wait.......wait a minute! This guy was down too far to be near Crayton after he caught the ball. I would go back and check it out again and again, and I'm telling you, it will blow your mind.

He was a freak of nature.

Well, I'm not trying to get people sad or anything. As a fan of the game, I would like to see him on that list. SOMEWHERE!

Out of all these respected names you have posted, how many of them could cover the running backs (probably all of them)

tight ends (probably all of them)

wide receivers (NONE OF THEM) Except ONE. Sean Taylor.

And he could hit just as hard as the LB, because he was about their size, and stronger and faster than the DBs on that list.

Nuff Said!!

Thanks for proving my point,the list is about tackeling ............not covering.ST was a good player with tons of potential ...just not great.You don't got into the HOF for potential.

Re: Shouldn't Sean Taylor.............

Classy thread, GINeric. Sean Taylor coulda, woulda and definitely SHOULDA gone down as the greatest player in Redskins history. I loved watching the guy play and he had yet to reach his full potential! Hopefully the Skins will continue the "Warpath 21" march they started after his tragic death last season. Stay motivated and play every down for Sean!!

HAIL!!

Dude S.T. had fully grown into his potential during the '07 season. Everybody could see it, he didn't get beat once, he had 5 picks in 7 games, and he was playing like everyone envisioned he would when we first drafted him. If he had played like that the entire year I have no doubts he would've been recognized as one of the best safeties in the NFL, similar to the way Ed Reed was in '04. Unfortunately that didn't and won't happen, so the point is basically moot.

Re: Shouldn't Sean Taylor.............

Look first off,no one can find anything I've said that's negative about ST!He was good,very good but to anoint him as a saint and all super HOF I think is wrong.Second and I mean this, all I'm talking about is football...nothing else.We will never know simple as that,we can wish ,hope or dream but he could have blown out a knee and never played again...................nobody knows that's all I'm saying .

Slim, stop being a homer a give respect where it is due. He was the hardest hitting...............you ready for this.............................
DEFENSIVE PLAYER IN THE GAME!!! PERIOD!!!

BE IT TACKLING OR HITTING, whatever you want to call it. When he struck your a$$, it was hard as hell. He changed the game in just 3 in a half years.

I love T.O. because of his talent and because he plays for the Cowboys, but I have never in his whole career, seen him play as cautious as he did when he played against the Skins.

I know you had a great on your team named L. Taylor, much respect. But this dude was your best player's size and probably faster than any WR in your teams history.

I am not a genius when it comes to physics, but when you have a guy that weighs 235 to 240 that runs a 4.3, 4,4 WITH RECKLESS ABANDONMENT, that to me spells one of the hardest hits.

I bet you Plaxico would consider him one of the most feared tacklers in NFL history. Try thinking outside the box. I know a lot about football Homey, and I know that there has never been NOBODY like him at that position.

Tell me this. How many safeties have you ever seen cover the WHOLE defensive backfield BY HIMSELF?

You don't believe me, just look at one of those crazy setups that GW designed for the Skins when ST was back there alone.

Go ahead, it's on film.

He would have been the best safety EVER to have played the game. And I have no problem saying that, because I recognize GREATNESS!!

Straight up!

Can you honestly tell me that he couldn't be put on the

NFL's Most Feared Tacklers/Hitters List. This is all I'm questioning. Nothing about the HOF, All-Time greatest players, none of that.

Just One of the Most Feared Tacklers/Hitters.

It doesn't take a long career to establish that, just a few concussions on the offensive players behalf.
