Should Sean Taylor have a bust/statue either at FedEx or Skins Park? Explain your answer.

a) Yes
b) No

I haven't watched any of the video's on here til now. Lump in my throat as I was watching. He said it all around the 3:30 mark, God gave him his chance. Wish it could have been longer.

RIP ST. You ARE missed!!

I vote no on the statue. My personal opinion is that statues should be reserved for people who contribute in a stellar fashion on the field (check), for a prolonged period of time for a given team (#21 doesn't pass), and simultaneously gives generously of time or money to the community (again, #21 doesn't pass).

I love Sean Taylor, but let's not get crazy and canonize everyone to whom tragedy strikes.

If you're going to choose anyone to lionize with a statue in front of the stadium, it would have to be Darrell Green.

The Ring of Honor is an ideal and entirely appropriate remembrance for Sean Taylor.

No statue, but I think a plaque somewhere would be acceptable.

I'm finally home so I can see the S.T. youtube tributes.

Sean Taylor was The Man.

Yes! What better news today than seeing that Fox will be showing the Skins/jints game in my area!!

Go Skins!!!

I hate that we are back to the place where every game is a must win. Once I would like to have a cushion going into the final weeks of the season.

With how tight the W/C race is, the good thing is that the Skins control their destiny, if they win out.

Let's see some violent F'n football!!!

Damn! ST was HUGE!!!!

Can't stop watching the Taylor Forever video that someone linked. What a awesome player.

With so much to love about ST21's play on the field, what I enjoyed the most was the way he manhandled TO both as an eagle and a cowgirl.

No I believe that it is completely appropriate to put a statue of him somewhere, whether it be at Ashburn, or Fed Ex. The way he played was unlike any I've ever seen, and he should be remembered with a statue to let the enemies of Redskins Nation feel the terror that he caused so many before them. If I ever see another Redskin player in the number 21 I will puke. not because said player would not be deserving but ST 21 was by far my favorite player of all time.

I'm sure KC, Duh Rayduhs, SF, Cincy etc. fans would happily trade places with you.

So far this is my favorite:

Didn't say I wouldn't take it, just hate it. Would rather eat snacks than finger nails with my beer on Sundays.

Thanks thunder! Another one for my library.

Just a thought on Shaun Alexander -- assuming that his career is really done, his last active game was back at Qwest Field, even though he didn't play.

Have fun at Whistler, Diddy! Thanks again for Saturday night!

We all knew this wouldn't be a good 'feeling' day.

Just imagine how people feel who really knows this guy in person.

To me Sean Taylor represents all DMV (DC, MD, & VA) Youth who have been slain on our streets. Since ST has been killed, there has been no slow down of murders in the District/PG County and surrounding areas. The youth are still not respecting life, and I believe this is due to the 3rd generation of living in ignorance (dating back to the 80s and the high homicide rates through the 90s).

People - none of us are Superman. BUT, if you have a chance to turn around just 1 (ONE) youth, you would have done an AMAZING job. I have tried to do my part in all of this and I am asking you to do yours.

Take a youth out to experince something different. Talk to them about life and tale them about your trials and tribulations. Let them know you've tripped up in this world and have been able to stand back up.

If we all do our part and bring back the village thaat it use to take to raise these children/youth, we may spend less time mourning over losing love ones earlier than anyone could expect.......

I vote no to a statue but I do believe on addition to the ring of fame...his #21 should be officially retired with the league.

Man this is all rushing back again...I sure hope we win Sunday....

I just randomly watched this video on YouTube a few weeks ago. I still can't watch this without tearing up...

R.I.P. #21

I'm with you I just finished up a bunch of sh!t at work, I like the Boschetti pick up he can step right in a play.

Posted by: Flounder21 | November 26, 2008 8:09 AM | Report abuse

So hard to watch. His play embodied what we all strive for but often cannot achieve: 100 percent commitment. He'll continue to inspire.
