TJ Duckett Remembers Sean
My good friend Nick Cotsonika, who covers the Lions for the Detroit Free Press, just emailed me the transcript of the conversation he had with former Redskin running back TJ Duckett about Sean . TJ was here for the 2006 season then left as a free agent in Match.
"He was a private guy," Duckett said of Taylor, "but he was a great guy, man. His work ethic and everything he did on the field and his approach to the game and how he played the game, he was going to be one of the greatest to play the game, I think. It's just sad to see that happen.
I just remember how he prepared for game and his mentality before a game. From Wednesday to Sunday, he took the game as serious as anyone and he lived and breathed it. He was definitely on his way to being great. "
Like everyone else, Duckett was stunned by the news of Sean's shooting.
"I was completely shocked. Disbelief. You got the right Taylor? I got a text message. 'Sorry to hear about Taylor.' This was when he first got shot. And I was like, 'Taylor who? What are you talking about?' I knew nothing about that."
Duckett said he has received lots of text messages about Sean, many even from people he does not that well.
He called Sean was a: "Good guy. Really good guy. Being new, he was definitely one of the guys who welcomed me in there."
Duckett said the incident also brings home the fears that all people face.
"It's a sad situation. If you think it's not going to happen to you, that's when you have to have your eyes open a little bit wider. I think it's definitely a situation where everyone is more on their guard and their antennas are up more."
