This is a real shame!!!! I hope they catch the b@zztard who did this. The only punishment they'll need is having him stand in midfield while the entire Redskins team rushes at him! 60+ really big men running at him will strike the fear of God in him!


May Sean rest in peace!!! frown

Hate to sound cold, but Sean Taylor wasn't exactly an angel. Sounds like premeditated murder and a grudge between Taylor and someone. Violent end to a violent person.


An All-American at the University of Miami, Taylor was drafted by the Redskins as the fifth overall selection in 2004. Coach Joe Gibbs called it "one of the most researched things" he'd ever done, but the problems soon began. Taylor fired his agent, then skipped part of the NFL's mandatory rookie symposium, drawing a $25,000 fine. Driving home late from a party during the season, he was pulled over and charged with drunken driving. The case was dismissed in court, but by then it had become a months-long distraction for the team.



Taylor also was fined at least seven times for late hits, uniform violations and other infractions over his first three seasons, including a $17,000 penalty for spitting in the face of Tampa Bay running back Michael Pittman during a playoff game in January 2006.



Meanwhile, Taylor endured a yearlong legal battle after he was accused in 2005 of brandishing a gun at a man during a fight over allegedly stolen all-terrain vehicles near Taylor's home. He eventually pleaded no contest to two misdemeanors and was sentenced to 18 months' probation.

Who's a saint nowadays in sports? Derek Jeter may be the only one left! Bottomline is that it's a tragic death. The NFL has guys that are 10X worse and they're walking around...


Until we know ALL the facts, speculating is pointless.

It wasn't a robbery - it was a hit. 8 days prior, someone left a knife on his bed. Then someone just runs in, fires at him in bed, and leaves?


C'mon.

I agree with you on this one Jonah. You're right, the guy made his own bed on this one. Its tragic but some of these players need to learn that no matter how rough their upbringing was they need to deattached themselves from the parasites and end up taking their lives away. Its ridiculous!!

So incredibly sad and senseless. It reminded me of the Darrent Williams tragedy here in Denver last NY Day. Too many guns!
