Sean Taylor Recap

Here's what we know for sure:
Sean was shot near an artery in his thight, lost a lot of blood, and has been in surgery all day. The situation is very serious. He continues to be worked on as of this moment and the team continues to await for details from the hospital and family, as they are available.

Most of the players have left the building, with all but a very few opting not to speak to the media. No one knows enough to say anything substantially at this point, anyway, other than he has been in a life-threatening situation all day.

Several family members and family friends have told various Post reporters that he was in critical condition, but they were hopeful he was stabalizing. But the situation is in flux and can change at any moment.

Spoke to some people at the NFL who said in essence they have not received too much new information in the last hour or so, but that they have heard unofficially that there was an attempted robbery, Sean was shot, and he continues to be surgery and remains under surgical care.

"This could not happen to a better thug! Lie with dogs and you'll get fleas or shot! Go DALLAS!"

dude, you gotta be crazy. It was a home invasion. They came to rob his place, he heard sounds went to the door and got shot. It could happen to you tonight, jackass

Thanks inbred...thanks for showing us how much class you have, or lack thereof. Such an inappropriate time to root for a team. Someone's life is on the line and you're cheering for Dallas. How about you go to a Dallas blog and do that. Those of us with hearts on this blog are sending out prayers.

Guys, despite the despicable post, lets be bigger, and not lower ourselves. We know who we are, we knew that this type of post would happen. ITA.

Cyn Cyty I hope you can delete the hateful post. There really is no need for them.

You're so right sams3. I'll add inbred to my prayers because he sure does need it.

People, just email the link below to report offensive comments. The comment will be removed. Replying back is not productive. Wishing someone else to get robbed and shot for what he posted is also not helpful. STOP THE VIOLENCE!

So true Greg.

It's friends and family know what a big Sean Taylor fan I am, and I've been getting condolence emails off and on all morning.

Though it's sweet of them, I'm telling them to pray for Sean. Nothing else we can do at this point.

I truly hope SeanTay gets well soon. We all know he's got a strong will, so if anyone can make it through this crap he will.

From the previous thread, a number of people were complaining about the stories referencing SeanTay's checkered past. The Post's initial reports were chock full of similar references. My first reaction was disgust as well, since I thought they were insinuating SeanTay has gotten what he deserved.

However, my attitude has changed since reading subsequent stories and comments. To some extent the information about his past illuminates the possibility that SeanTay's history was not and cannot be simply closed off. Coming on the heels of the SI article about the difficulty many athletes have in shedding the less than positive influences in their lives, I think it's reasonable to examine SeanTay's past to understand who did this and why.

Now it's way too early to be doing that, unless you're a Miami cop, but that doesn't stop everyone from going down that path. It's human nature. The press feeds on that, rightly or wrongly. That too is human nature.

Get well soon Sean.

In the interest of redeeming Dallas fans, I just want to say, we don't all think like that jerk. Sean Taylor's condition goes beyond football or team rivalries. This Dallas fan, at least, is praying for his recovery.
