5 years ago Sean Taylor was killed when some one broke in his house and shot him..

Dude was only 24 years old and was already killin it... He easily could've been a top 10 safety off all time...

    I can't speak of what he could have done in the NFL had he lived, but he's a Canes legend down here.

    still sucks. coulda been great. unfortunately he hadn't matured and his life outside of football caught up with him. but in his defense, he probably wasn't living too much differently that alot of other athletes his age. his legacy should be to show how the safety position should be played and also as a wake up call to younger athletes to leave that street life behind

    That is exactly what happened...idk what Matt's talking about. They planned on burglarizing the house thinking he wasn't home.

    RIP, i was a fan of dude.

    i remember on draft day, the talkin heads on tv were so surprised Joe Gibbs selected him over Kellen Winslow Jr.
  • Matt-Matt- Posts: 21,585 ✭✭✭✭✭
    from what i remember there was some events that happened at that house before the murder that may or may not have been related. but you'd be a fool to believe that he didn't have his fair share of enemies due to his lifestyle. they said he had turned it around, but who knows. nobody will ever know. thats why i said it should be a wake up call for athletes that they shouldn't wait on something to happen in their life, i.e. a child, a marriage, reaching a certain age before making a change.

    and even if the burglary was just totally random and was totally separate from his past transgressions, the shit he was caught up in should still be a wake up call. you have to look at his life in its totality. In doing so, younger players can realize that a lesson about how to conduct your life as a young man in the NFL is as important as how you play your position on the field

    nahhhh ... i mean i guess i can google and try to look back on some shit i may have forgotten about him. but his death had nothing to do with his lifestyle besides him having money. you saying it like it was a drug deal gone bad. and they caught the kids who did it so why wouldnt the kids say that they were doing dirt with him and decided to rob him etc?? i mean the first thing ppl do when they get caught in situations like this is make sure they point out that the victim wasnt with out sin.

    He killed it at Gulliver Prep...I'll always remember that UM-FSU game in the rain in Tallahassee. Interceptions, recovering fumbles, stuffing the run. Dude was EVERYWHERE.

    Sad waste of talent. Strange too. Didn't he die from a gun shot to the leg?

    Even the Knee Collector don't approve of that fuckery.

    I believe some folks had stolen some atv's from his house. he then was arrested going after them dudes. I thiink he had a gun on him. but it was unrelated.

    the folks that robbed him had visited the house a few weeks before but he didn't even know the dudes. He just let them in b/c they was with some other dude he knew. That's when they thought of the plan to rob him b/c they found out he didn't even have any alarm or they weren't working. then they broke in when they thought he wasn't home. He heard some shit grabbed his machete to check it out and them dudes shot him.

    LaRon Landy had a couple good years. Eric Berry had a phenomenal rookie year. Bob Sanders was the man for a year or two.

    Look how those Safety's have turned out so far.

    Even Troy Polamalu to an extent has had a shortened career. And Ed Reed seems like a part-time player these days.



    The truth is, Safeties get injured more than any other position. Who knows what Sean Taylor wouldve become.
