Portis and Moss Address Rolle's Comments

Portis and Moss both talked extensively to reporters about Taylor today, as did many other Redskins. Both of the UM guys, who sat next to Taylor in the locker room and had spoken with him on Saturday, addressed Antrel Rolle's comments about how Taylor had been targeted. Moss: "Antrel Rolle...

Clinton Portis's Extensive Taylor Remarks

A bunch of Redskins were all smiley and laughy today. That's nice. And I just had a long interview with one of the creative minds behind the Gilbert Talking Lobster commercials, which was also nice. I must have asked him at least 400 questions about the lobster. And zero...

Sean Taylor and Eastern Motors

Paying tribute to "The Punisher," in happier times. I couldn't remember whether I had ever seen Sean Taylor actually singing the Eastern Motors jingle. So I asked Easterns owner and CEO Robert Bassam. "Yes, he's part of the jingle." Bassam told me. "He sang the song and he danced...

Colin Cowherd on Sean Taylor

"Herd" = independent thinking, yeah? One of the dominant questions sports opinion types have grappled with this week is this: Was Sean Taylor's death a surprise. Famously, Michael Wilbon and Len Shapiro both said no. This struck me as a needlessly provocative and confrontational way to approach the story...

Chris Paul: We Stand Together

Funny, the last time I linked to a Redskins-related song to this tune, it was B-Lloyd's "I Get That Chedda." Now it's Chris Paul's weekly Redskins song, which this week is "We Stand Together."...

Brian Moorman Remembers

Sean Taylor slammed his body into more than his fair share of wide receivers and running backs and tight ends over the years, but the hit that's stamped into plenty of minds involves a punter. Yeah, a punter. At the Pro Bowl. Yeah, the Pro Bowl. The Bills' Brian Moorman,...

The Bills React to the Taylor News

(AP Photo of Kevin Everett incident) ORCHARD PARK--The mood at the Bills practice facility was very somber for much of the afternoon. Players spoke at great length and with great passion about their shock upon hearing the Sean Taylor news. Coach Dick Jauron addressed the issue at a team...

A Redskins Ride

(This is at least one petition to retire Taylor's 21, if you're interested.) I'm back home in Buffalo for the day, to talk to some Bills about what this weekend will be like. And, of course, to talk with Brian Moorman, who'll be linked with Sean Taylor for the...

Why Buy Taylor?

[I just got back from FedEx Field, where the team store is overrun by people buying Taylor jerseys. The guy working the counter said they weren't allowed to take to the media, but trust me, a lot of people are leaving with Taylor gear. Some of the following is...

Taylor Jersey Sales Spiking

I've wondered for a while which Redskins player's jersey was the best-selling. Sadly, today finally prompted me to find out. The answer, as you might have guessed, was Sean Taylor, followed by Jason Campbell and Chris Cooley, according to the latest NFLShop.com numbers. All three guys were in the...

More Taylor Memorials

I've never been part of a full-on media feeding frenzy like this. Clearly there's a demand for information--I've been consuming it as much as the next D.C.'er--but it still makes you want to go in the other direction, pronto, which I'm about to do. My Brain Says Rage: "That's...

Why Redskins Fans Care

I couldn't begin to tell you anything insightful about Sean Taylor. I think I understood him less than any other player on the roster, even the ones I've never talked to. I had about five encounters with him over the past 12 months, and he was always unfailingly and...

Local Hoops Poll Week Three: Mason Madness

More history. We have a MEAC team in the Atlantic 11 for the first time. Congratulations, Morgan State. We have an unprecedented spike from UMBC, easily the best showing from a low-major in Poll history. The dilemma at the top virtually vanished, with Georgetown getting 71 of 73 first-place...

Vegas's National Championship Game Picks

Last week was the season's best test of the Vegas pollsters, whom we need now more than ever with at least three valid claimants on national championship game berths. Let me briefly state my original intentions here: since judging multiple one- or two-loss teams is extremely difficult, and since the...

Redskins-Bucs Bonus Quotes: Real Real Big Big

(Getty Images) Ugh. I think this season is aging me. But we carry on, by first cribbing from our print-edition notes, to wit: On the day he turned 67 years old, Redskins Coach Joe Gibbs was required to put his personal identification to good use. Comcast SportsNet cameras caught...
