Happy Birthday Sean Taylor

He would have been 38 today

Re: Happy Birthday Sean Taylor

Damn, he'd still be young.

I'll never forget the day because I had just salvaged a few hours of sleep...my son had been born the evening before. I walked into my wife's hospital room and the first thing she said was "Sean Taylor was shot" and she had the TV tuned to coverage.

My son has a plaque of him up on his wall in the yellow throwbacks. He asked me just a could of days ago if he'd still be playing.


There's a chance. Ed Reed played until age 36 and Sean was a physical freak.

Happy Birthday!!

His death just pisses me off to this day. All because a few idiots made a stupid decision.

Re: Happy Birthday Sean Taylor

Sometimes it's hard to find the words, like for me and most people here his loss is felt on the field but not beyond that. It's not like our grieving compares to the loss his family feels.

But man, I'm not sure I'll ever love another player like ST. The athleticism, the way it all clicked for him in 2007, I don't know of any other Redskin in my lifetime who put together a highlight reel stretch like he did in 3 1/2 years. The way we've never had a solid replacement for him since he passed. To be taken over some dumb shit right as everything clicks and he got his life in order and it was showing on the field - it still hurts. RIP.

Hard to believe he wouldn't even be 40 yet. All of that seems like it happened last week.

Re: Happy Birthday Sean Taylor

Wow. Crazy that he would probably still be knocking dicks in the dirt today. Makes it even sadder. Being he was a Cane and a Skin he was my favorite player. I remember going to the Bills game with the tribute. Still got my 21 towel. Like Gibbs said on the jumbo tron that day “God take care of Sean and we will see ya when we see ya”. Happy Birthday in heaven to an all time great.

HB 21!

Sure wish we could have enjoyed watching you tear it up for the last 13+ years.

RIP!

Some out of town fuck went over the Sean Taylor tribute? That was on the red line in a prime spot and it was amazing no 13 year old toys went over it ... then this?

Hope Cert goes back and re does it.

Is this fresh? I know someone tagged over it years ago but I guess Cert went back and re-did it.

I endorse the message but my bias keeps me from endorsing it on that one particular spot.

Jason Wright
@whoisjwright
We wanted to do something long overdue by retiring players' numbers. Months ago we planned for Bobby Mitchell and Sean Taylor to be the first two. Seeing the reaction, I'm very sorry that the short notice does not properly reflect the impact Sean had. President's Brief to come...

You dont change Skins culture, Skins culture changes you.

A bit hyperbole there but clean people come here and leave dirty.

I like Jason, accountability here is a good thing. I imagine hes been busy with the dark clouds above and the calendar snuck up on them?

Jason had to come out and apologize after that debacle.. He had no choice to lie

I'm calling bullshit.
Jason is only accountable to the person signing his checks.

This stunt screams "Hey look, we like black people".

Bobby Mitchell died years ago and retired 5 million years ago but they want to mention him now?

ST has been gone 14 years. Why not do this at year 10 or 20 of his passing?
Or maybe his 40th birthday?

Darrell Green and Art Monk will be trotted out like show ponies the next time Snyder fucks up.

I hate this fucking team so god damn much.
