Such a long, long time to be gone, and a short time to be there.

RIP Sean.

I'm at a complete loss for words!

I feel sad that such a talented young man in the prime of his life has been taken away. I feel anger at the worthless garbage that is responsible for this heinous crime. I feel disgust at myself for thinking of football while this man was fighting for his life. I feel hearbroken for Gregg Williams, who admired and stood by Sean Taylor through everything, including the naysayers and doubters. I feel humble that I'm still alive in spite of my contant complaining of little things. I feel anger towards God for taking this mans life away from him when he didn't deserve it.

This is despicable, and I'm utterly shocked and saddened. This was senseless and unnecessary!

Sean Taylor, though you may be gone from this Earth, you are not gone from our thoughts, our family, and our lives. This is a time for everyone, friend and foe, to come together and pay homage to an incredibly gifted man who had a lot of good in him!

I don't know what else to say!
Sit back and watch the Redskins.

In times like this, people get really down on God. Only God knows our end for the beginning.


Rest in Peace................ God has infinite Mercy. We love you Sean and we will miss you.

Please, SOMEONE tell me that they have some solid leads as to who is responsible for this senseless act of cowardice? PLEASE?

Sean Taylor did not deserve to die! This is a tragedy of unspeakable proportions. The grief that I'm feeling over this must pale in comparison to the grief that his immediate family and friends must feel.

All I want to do right now is talk about it, yet I'm at a loss for words!

Rest in Peace, Sean. You will be greatly missed.

I don't know anything more than you do, but I'd say there's a STRONG chance that this was not a random assailant who robbed a random (if very large) house and randomly chose to only shoot the man of the house.

Given Sean Taylor's past, I'm sorry to say this, but it's likely this was just the last event in a chain of events involving Taylor. He kept a machete at his bedside for protection. It's not like he had no idea someone could be looking for him. This doesn't excuse the crime. Far from it. May Christ be with the Taylor family.

words escape me - RIP ST
We are very fortunate to have Kirk Cousins but Griffin has a huge upside IMO

Robert needs to continue to get better and to do that he needs time on the field - hopefully sooner than later

Sean was irrepalceable in life and on the field. I feel terrible for his family. It's also sad that it takes the death of a player to pry the sports media away from their constant exclusive coverage of the Cowboys and the Patriots.

Swing, it's good to see you here this morning offering your support.

To the Redskin fans I'd like to offer my condolences on your loss. This is truly a terrible thing and it saddens me deeply to think about it. My thoughts are with you and when I am at the Stadium this Sunday I promise that I will be thinking of Taylor and all you guys.

Take care.

I liked Taylor. He didn't develop as quickly as Bob Sanders, but i think he was potentially much better.

I'm sorry, but you didn't know him, and it doesn't appear that you are up to date whatsoever on what was going on in his life, if those are your conclusions.

Speculate if you must, but it would be better to let Redskins fans grieve and have some peace. It was bad enough seeing the way the media covered his injury yesterday. That's the best way you can show some kindness. Thanks.

One of the hardest things I did this morning was take ST off my Madden rosters...

I know it may not seem like much to some, but it added a kind of reality to it all.

Unlike some I'm going to work today (but I respect people who feel the need to grieve.)

At work I'm going to wear a yellow sweatband I pulled out of my closet this morning that I marked with the number 21 in magic marker. I'd encourage everyone to make some sort of gesture in whatever way they are able.
