Clinton Portis Meeting The Media

Clinton is answering questions right now:

"It's an unfortuate situation. No one really knows the logistics of what happened."

Clinton said the players have not been assured that Sean will survive:
"I've been todl hes lost a lot of blood and he's fighting to hold on."

As for Taylor's past, Clinton said
"All of that menas nothing now that he's fighting for his life."

Portis also said the incident is not specific to South Florida:
"Its not Miami, it's anywhere. this could happen anywhere. For Sean its just an unfortunate situation"

Portis has never been to this specific house, but knows of it's location:
"It wasn't a bad neighborhood. It' not a high crime area."

Portis said Taylor has made changes in his life the past few years after starting a family:

"Ever since he had his child it was like a new Sean."

Portis also said:
"If he was at the game with us if he was on the flight with us, then he wouldn't be in this situation ... but Sean's a tough guy. Hopefully, he can pull through."

To anyone calling me any naems in the last post, you might want to re-read it. I wasn't saying that he was looking for trouble or hanging out in a bad neighborhood, merely that he has some enemies down there and you don't have to do much sometimes to have thugs come find you. I cast no judgment as to Sean-Tay's past at all, and I think a lot of people are looking for ways to get angry at each other over this. We gotta come together on this one though and keep up the support and care - not just for Sean Taylor but for his family and everyone it impacts. No need for back-biting, this is real-life tragedy, not "sports tragedy".

Cleveland Browns fan here .... thoughts and prayers to Sean Taylor and his family. Sean is a great player and fans across the NFL are congizant that he's done a lot of growning up and has matured into a good guy.

Hang in there Sean!
