Should Patriots.Com Be Using This Photo?



Obviously there was no harm intended here, and I'm not even sure whether it's inappropriate or not. But it sure is jarring to go to the home page of Patriots.com and see this image.

(UPDATE: Image changed to Randy Thomas. All's well.)

Is that really the only Patriots/Redskins picture they could find? Show some class Patriots...

I agree with Mondo TE11.

Seems pretty tasteless to me. I've emailed their marketing folks. There are thousands of pictures to use, they should choose a different one.

i agree with your twitter description: weird.

Looks like they changed it. Thanks Pats.

It's still hard to think about how amazing that kid would've been in the burgundy and gold.

Thanks for pointing it out Stein

This is bad.

The Redskins should be the only team that can exploit Sean Taylor's death for money.

Seriously? Nice cut and paste job. Everyone knows that nobody could stiff-arm ST.

Glad they changed it.

Most teams one would think it is an innocent mistake. But Belichick is such a slimy, low life that one wonders.

Got an email from their webmaster:

Looks like they flubbed and fixed asap.

Exploiting Sean Taylor for money? Remember, it was the Patriots who removed #21 from their helmets that year before anyone else. They could care less about Sean Taylor, and could care less about exploiting them for money. It was definitely an oversight on their part. To them, Sean Taylor was just another Redskin.

Hey, it's good to see ST getting ready to jack someone up again. Nothing wrong with remembering a guy with a heck of a lot of potential.

And honestly, that disembodied ref's ear above Randy in the new pic scares me more.

Say what you want about me but I think it is time to really let Sean Rest in Peace and let things like this go.

You have some nerve making a statement like this. The Redskins have not in any way, shape, or form "exploited Sean Taylor's death for money." When you make such an outrageously offensive statement like this, you damn well better back that up with some concrete examples. Holding a memorial for him and retiring his name to the Ring of Fame at the stadium are not "exploiting" and certainly aren't "for money."

You really need to get a clue. Don't come back on here posting anything other than an apology to the team for your ignorant, classless comment.
