Sean Taylor - What if...

Okay, assuming the reports are true, and Sean Taylor DOESN'T want a new contract, but shows up for minicamp; do you think he should be the starter? That is assuming he's the best FS we have on the team -- which I'm sure he will be.

Re: Sean Taylor - What if...

I'd like to know his reasons first. He could have at least picked up the phone and called somebody.

It's kind of like the Chapelle situation. People are going to start speculating until someone hears from him.

Chappelle and Sean Taylor in the same thread! classic.

Sean Taylor will start if he comes back, no doubt. Gregg Wiliams loves the guy and Gregg Wiliams has St. Joe's ear. But I swear, he is probably testing the patience of a few important people. . .

Do I like him as much? HELL NO!

Do I think that Taylor is an F-up? hell Yes!

but he is our F-up, so until he completly screws us like coles, I'm on his side.

Re: Sean Taylor - What if...

I say sit him. I'm sick of catering to pouting 22 year-olds who think they're somehow above the team and can make up and live by their own rules. Not for the whole season, but send a message that he's not indispensible.

Last year we had the #3 D in the entire NFL, and we did that without him being a starter the first few games, without Arrington for most of the season, without Daniels for most of the season, without Barrow (who was the projected starter going into the year), without Bowen for a host of games, and without other defensive players for games here and there througout the season. I have no reason to believe this year will be any different. It's GW's system that makes our defense great, not Sean Taylor.

Re: Sean Taylor - What if...

I definitely think he gets benched. I just wish SOMEONE would comment. Just the way Portis talks about things, it really does seem that Taylor got burnt out from football.

gortiz, the similarities between him and Chapelle get weirder every minute!

Re: Sean Taylor - What if...

Am I the only one who thinks our defense was better BECAUSE Bowen was out? He had a great game vs TB, but that guy is horrible in passing situations.

Re: Sean Taylor - What if...

It's funny, ST has his own website www.seantaylor36.com, but it's been down for the past 2 weeks. Quite frankly, the site is pretty awful, but I did take a gander into the forum section, and Sean was getting slammed left and right....on his own fan website. Oh, and when I say "slammed", I'm not implying that anyone has said anything negative about how he plays...I mean, how could ya. But as far as his holdout is concerned, he was getting very little support. I think he's got a lot of growing up to do, but I also think that he'll be our starter (and should be).

Re: Sean Taylor - What if...

Does everyone here realize that this is the NFL and not high school football? If you want to win in the NFL you have to play your best players. If Taylor is the best FS we have then play him. Yeah he sat out of VOULENTARY workouts and VOULENTARY practices. Does it suck that he did this? YES!! But still you have to play your best players every Sunday weither you want to or not.

Yeah we did have the #3 D with out Arrington, Daniels, Bowen and others, but do you think that they would have been benched if they were able to play? Then just think how much better our D could have been if they all were healthy!!

I am not happy with Taylors choice not to be at redskins park, but he is the best FS we have so play him. Besides its not like we are rewarding him for sitting out, if he comes to play and he is out of shape and not at the level he was last year then yes bench him.

Re: Sean Taylor - What if...

Taylor would have to hold out of training camp for me to sit him. How can you lose a job over activities labled "voluntary"? He should definitely be there though...I have not changed my mind on that.

Apples and Oranges. None of the injured players pulled the same sh!t Taylor is pulling. Of course they wouldn't be benched.....they did nothing to deserve it.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but I don't think it's completely out of question to bench players that piss all over you. It wouldn't be the first time a starter was put on the bench to send a message. It's been done in all professional sports. Personally, I like what Gruden did to Keyshawn, and I hope more coaches grow the balls to do that to other players like him in the future.

You are not alone, Man.
Bowen is a huge liability in the passing game. But he is good at blitzing the QB.
If his pass defense skills do not improve he will eventually be replaced. I do not like it that we have to sub our safeties depending on situations. Teams will exploit it and throw over to bowen when he is in.

I know it is summer and not much Skins news to talk about....but in this over saturated media, overly judgemental (church lady) time we live in...some of you guys are ready to throw ST under the bus for these minor issues? Yes this isn't high school, but the NFL is not nor has it ever been a high moral place. Some of our past stars were much worse than ST. I worry about alienating all our good players because some hypocritical/overl judgmental repoters are burning players publicly.
Let ST show up on Sundays and play his heart out for us. Leave him alone. The guy will be a probowl player soon. What he does on his spare time is his bussiness, not ours. VOLUNTARY WORK OUT - change the name if they are not voluntary!
