It seems as if our blitz concepts are more thought out then our coverage concepts.
Although i'm a big time advocate of pressure backed up by zone as a way to generatr QB mistakes you have to change it and disguise the coverages we just can't sit back and alterante between Cover 2/Cover 3 zone unless we're creating ungodly pressure (which we're not). We need to through in some man coverages, some cloud coverages etc.

I still tear up every time

What is scary is that he was only getting better... he was headed for an unbeliveable year in 07 before he got hurt. I still go back and watch the video they showed at fed-ex the sunday following, and cry. I can't watch anything with that young man and not feel somewhat empty.

I wonder if I ever will be... or if I will ever watch a game again and not think what if st was still here...... then I just have to remember it was God's plan not mine.

My fiance had a coffee cup made for me for christmas last year.. half of it was me in my race car on the track and the other side was ST in the clouds wearing his Skins uni with his back turned and a face shot of him from when he was a rookie.. it says gone but never forgotten "an angel amoung us". She gave it to me at our Christmas party and I had to leave the room, because I had to cry and I didnt want to do it in front of all our friends...

Re: Suspect Safety Play

I can't say that I ever think about a play or game in an "if Sean was there.." type manner anymore

to me it transcends a play or game, just if people had his style, his ability, his desire.. if every player played like Sean Taylor you wouldn't need an offense.. if every player played like Sean you wouldn't have excuses after games.. if every player played like Sean we wouldn't have much to worry about

some players are smart, some players adjust well, some are fast.. some are big..

Sean had all of that, plus intensity, you can't coach intensity, you either want it or you don't.. being a wrestler myself and having played defense, there's no substitute for intensity, none at all.. you can take the most intensive player and couple that with half smarts and chances are you're going to be much better than the smartest player with 75% intensity

you're never out of the play when you're ready to make it

What I respected about him, and what I think about is more than the "What If" game taht people like to play, but more of what you are talking about T. The way the man played, the way that he brought out the most in CP, and even in Satana at times, the way he raised the whole play of the enitre defense. He was just so special and I wanted to watch him become the greatest Safety to ever play the game.

He was going to be that special, he was going to lead the defense to championships, but his life had more meaning than football. He was destined to bring that same intensity to protecting the 2 most important things to him in his life. That is what he was brought here to do. To impact our lives the way that he did, I am sure there are men and children out that he has become a hero for even in death. He opened my eyes to certain things about life and I did not even know him.

Re: Suspect Safety Play

Sean was a football player.
Down to his very core.
He was the best player on the defense.
Yet he would take reps as scout team CB to work on his craft.
Sean was special and will be missed.
