At least they got the name right.
It could've been a Deion Sanders jersey.

See IMO that is what he did. Times are hard for him so appease the mass's with a "Sean Taylor tribute". Sean Taylor was a great player no question and not debatable. It just seems that when shit hits the fans there is a tribute to Sean Taylor of some sort.

I thought the same as you, last season.

Couple things on this whole Sean Taylor thing..

First of all Pork you are right, the team has honored ST plenty. I mean if we want to be real here, they have honored him more than the Cards have Pat Tillman and the Lakers have for Kobe Bryant.

I hate to be that guy because I loved Sean just like the rest of us but they need to let it rest now. Unfortunately people are shot and killed in this country daily, the only reason why this team keeps doing this is ALL SNYDER trying to win over the fan base one last time on his way out.

As for the manikin or whatever that is , it looks like shit.. Literally looks like something from Dicks sporting goods. The Jersey is a NIKE jersey and the pants are Reebok LMAO, that is embarrassing. I get it they prob don't have the game worn jersey but damn at least have Reebok make you one...

Overall though this needs to be put to rest after this season.

Big facts. I'm not a fan of the memorial, I mean just do the right fucking thing and have a statue built if it really means that much to you, but I can't hate on it too much if his family likes it. That's what really matters.

In the end though, you are right. Snyder is trying to appease an apathetic fanbase by grasping the easiest straws, which is playing on our love for ST21.

This team is 6-1 in its' last 7 and there were so many Falcons fans in the stadium last week you could hear cheers when they had a big play.

That is the clearest indication yet how loathed Snyder is. His team is playing quite well and is entertaining. Attendance still is terrible and road teams' fans come to stadium abundantly. Atlanta doesn't even have a big fanbase. Attendance in the future will be interesting for all things considered. I know the weather sucked yesterday but expected far more Commanders' fans. Wrong.

Re: ST memorial “statue”

I’m not buying the “if his family likes it then it’s okay” thing. This is not Taylor’s family’s tribute, it’s the team’s tribute, designed to inspire the fans and burnish the franchise legacy. Of course the family should have approval rights, but the team should do something classy and inspirational or nothing at all. It’s a form of pandering, and the whole thing is tasteless no matter what the family thinks.

Great post. This effort was nothing better than an absolute fucking embarrassment.

And this is on the heels of the Porta-Potty Fiasco.

This franchise continues to disrespect Sean and his family.

And until I see a link that shows that his family approved of this wire mannequin, I won't believe this is what they envisioned. Nike jersey, Reebok pants, soccer cleats, absurd. A Snyder classic.

Build the man a statue or just let him RIP.

@PeteHailey@NCBS
Just got this pic of the Sean Taylor installation, which has been changed.

The facemask is finally taped.

The jersey, which was Nike, is now Reebok.

The socks are different and the ankles are taped too.

Wish the team got this right the first time. But good fixes regardless



^^ At least they are willing to fix mistakes these days, still don't know why it's so hard for them to get the little things right the first time around.

Definitely a drastic improvement.

Why didn't they use an actual mannequin instead of just those wired thing-ma-bobs?
