Maybe Snyder has enough pull to make Nov 27th each year a state holiday in recognition of Sean. Every Nov 27 the entire Redskin organization goes out into the community in Sean's name and does all kinds of charitable work. Sean would have loved that.

Diggler,

Quit hiding behind your new screen name, and come out like a man and say who you are.

You're a coward, and you know it!

You're scum, you coward!
Sit back and watch the Redskins.

SOMETHING MAGICAL IS ABOUT TO BEGIN!

JP ??? What are you talking about? Did Chris Matthews from Dateline catch you last night and get you all worked up?

Not sure what JP did last night but you didn't deny being a coward or scum so most members will not feel bad by bypassing the meaningless garbbage that you're posting.

Stupid question, but do you guys have a ring of honor? Football #'s are tricky to retire because of the restrictions you have based on position. For instance, no jersey is "officially" retired in Dallas but certain numbers are just not worn. (74, 8, 12, etc.)

There's a ring, not sure of the name they use (of honor, of fame or whatever) and the team has only retired 1 number officially. The Skins are painting his #21 around certain parts of Redskin Park today as a temp. memorial

Completely agree. I don't think I could imagine anyone else wearing that number. It needs to be retired.

Name a whole wing after him at Redskin Park. Or the fields at redskin park. I say this coz if it's at fedex the media will go all out with their insincere rant about him, this way if it's in Ashburn, it's more like our thing, as in only true fans appreciate it, and rookies will know how high the bar was set by the man that wore #36 and #21.
#21 (36) This IS and will always be the High watermark where all new DB's are measured.
