Very well written, imho. Still pulls at the emotions...the more we learn, the more it hurts.

RIP, Sean Taylor.

VERY great article. It explains a lot of Sean and how he grew up.

There also more family photos in this gallery. Great piece and great photos. Brings bad sad memories. :-(

Reading this made me wonder...With the trust that GW built up with Sean, what would Sean think about the way Snyder treated Williams.
I'd bet my house that Sean would not have resigned with the Skins and would have gone to Jacksonville with Williams!

If we're gonna go THAT route...

If Sean were still around, Gibbs would probably still be here as well. My 2 cents

Thanks for sharing the article and photo gallery, guys.
Back and better than ever!

He was a special person.

I admit this article is hard to read, hard for us who adored him, and understood why he was that way. I hate how people think that we have exploited his death and how they see him as a thug this and that. My first reaction to that is to start getting into arguments, but see how he handled things, see how ST ignored everything that was being written, good or bad... And how he never was willing to compromise the game, he would turn on teammates that quit. I love that about him and this is what I will always remember about the Man they call the Meast. Awesome Article.

You ain't kidding, Chris. It sucks that we had to find all this out AFTER Sean's passing.

It would have been nice if the press had made an effort to report some of this stuff during his life, as opposed to rehashing his "thug life". :roll:

My heart goes out to the Taylor family.
Back and better than ever!
