If I wear my Sean Taylor jersey tomorrow....

...would it be considered as a nice memorandum, or completely tasteless? I was going to wear it today in remembrance, but had second thoughts. He was my favorite Redskin, my favorite football player, and favorite player in any sport period.

I say wear it and do so proudly! It's your way of honoring someone you admire who has passed well before his time, and a way to show support for your team who are grieving more than any of us.

That's my 2 cents.
If men can run the world, why can't they stop wearing neckties? How intelligent is it to start the day by tying a little noose around your neck?

If you are dressed and present yourself appropriately why would anyone question your sincerity that it's anything but a payment of respect for ST? If you do something to make it look insincere in some way then it would be insulting.

Wear it proudly.

I've worn mine the last three days and probably will for the next week or so. I'm proud to have even met the guy, let alone be a fan of his and the Redskins and wearing his jersey fully represents the appreciation I have for him and the life that he led.

Wearing his jersey is anything but inappropriate.

There are only two teams I root for in the NFL. The Skins, and whoever is playing Dallas.

It's okay that we drafted a Landry. After this season, the crygirls will have a new association with that name.

I work with a good amount of Redskins fans, and one in particular who I've become really good friends with, is a huge Sean Taylor fan.

Our boss, out of respect for Taylor's passing, has allowed wear jerseys the rest of the week. Today, we traded jerseys: His Sean Taylor for my Ron Springs. I'm an emotional cat and I had to go to the restroom and let out a few tears when I put that jersey on, man. Completely honored and he completely caught me by surprise when he offered it to me.

Nothing tasteless at all about representing a person that you admired/respected.

Cowboys 17 - Redskins 0 (Way to NOT show up for the 100th anniversary)

Wear it proud...

We will always remember you.

Sean Taylor was known for his hard hits.

His hardest hit will always be the day that he was taken from us.
