They wanted a mannequin? If you provide the link, I'll gladly provide the apology.

Re: ST memorial “statue”

I saw on the pregame shows at statue, it was hard to tell what it looked like, but after seeing these pictures, I am appalled at how terrible it is, it’s shit like this that makes me not even want to root for this team.Somebody please please take Snyder away from us

Re: ST memorial “statue”

JFC they can't even set up a proper system to lift the curtain and have a decent unveiling...

Some people have better settings for their weddings, and I'm not talking billionaires...

Unbelievable. It literally is a metal pole for a head with a uniform on it. That belongs in the team store.

If davy is correct about the Taylor family's wish then the team did the right thing by honoring their wish, regardless of what we all think about it.

I find it real hard to believe the Taylor family said we want a faceless wire mannequin with soccer cleats and a mismatched uniform, but what do I know? I can’t find any link that says they wanted that.

What I do find is that they were involved throughout the process. However that doesn’t mean they had artistic control of the mannequin. Im sure had someone said guys we have commissioned this artist to do a bronze statue of Sean it would not have been met with “no we want a faceless mannequin in soccer cleats with a reebok shirt and nike pants. “.

Re: ST memorial “statue”

Not trying to defend this but nobody ever said it was going to be a statue, they said a memorial. And if the family signed off on it I’m perfectly fine with it.

I’d rather focus on the fact we’re 7-5 and in series playoff contention.

Re: ST memorial “statue”

Personally I think they should have used the TR 36 mannequin

Re: ST memorial “statue”

LANDOVER, Md., November 22, 2022 – The Washington Commanders will honor Sean Taylor on the 15th Anniversary of his passing during the team's Week 12 home matchup versus the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, November 27 at 1 p.m. In honor of a life and legacy that will forever shape the franchise, key activations include the reveal of the Sean Taylor Memorial installation, launch of the limited-edition Sean Taylor Legacy Project merchandise line, and special "21" helmet decals to be worn by Commanders players.

Headlining the day, the team will reveal the Sean Taylor Memorial installation pregame at 11:45 a.m. on the main concourse outside of section 132. This reveal is the culmination of the

Sean Taylor Memorial Project, launched on Sean's birthday earlier this year that provided fans an opportunity to pay tribute to one of the most beloved players in franchise history. Sunday also will mark the official launch of the Sean Taylor Legacy Project limited-edition merchandise line that was designed and inspired by Sean Taylor's daughter, Jackie Taylor. The collection includes a jersey, sweatshirts, T-shirts, and hats. The line will be available at the Commanders Team Store, A Fanatics Experience at FedExField, as well as online by visiting store.commanders.com. All proceeds from this merchandise launch will benefit gun violence prevention initiatives.

"Sean's life was tragically cut short but his impact continues to reverberate through our Burgundy & Gold family," said Co-Owners and Co-CEOs Dan and Tanya Snyder. "This Sunday, on the 15th anniversary of his passing, we honor one of our greats and his legacy by unveiling a permanent installation, so his memory is always with us when we take the field on gameday."

Additionally, as part of the NFL's My Cause, My Cleats annual initiative, select cleats will be on display in Legends Plaza and on suite levels throughout the game. Commanders players and coaches will wear the cleats in the team's Week 13 matchup at the New York Giants. A QR code will be attached to each cleat case for fan viewing and for fans to bid on cleats of their choosing. As a tribute to Sean Taylor, Miami-based custom sneaker designer Soles by Sir designed a pair of cleats in Sean's honor that will be featured in the My Cause, My Cleats display in Legends Plaza.

I was expecting an art installation created/designed by Seans daughter ... but it seems his daughter jackie designed the clothes that is being sold/launched to support the St foundation.

--------

Want to support Sean and his family? Go buy some of his daughters gear.

It looks like a skeletonized version of the old NFL Blitz mascot

I don't blame Snyder for this I blame Jason Wright. He botched the name change reveal and now this memorial. It seems to me that Wright's job requires attention to detail and he seems deficient in that department. IMO as long as Wright is in his current position the organization will continue to botch events.

Re: ST memorial “statue”

His daughter loved the soccer cleats and it was the most authentic part for her. I hope the family is happy with this, regardless if i think its fucking weak sauce.

RIP, 21
