Default Re: Sean Taylor dominates preseason game vs. Broncos

you're right about all of those cb, hopefully about dunta, what makes those cbs good are their quickness, instincts, and closing speed. it is harder for big guys to react quickly to the wr. wr don't have to be quick or fast because they don't have to react or stay with anyone.

Even though I'm not a Redskin or Hurricane fan I truly believe Sean Taylor is a FUN player to watch on the field and I will be start watching every single Redskins game because of him.He's more fun to watch than Michael Vick IMO!PRobably won't be many Redskin games on TV for us though.

I second that. Hope Dunta becomes the ultimate shutdown CB. As for Sean Taylor if he has to play LB (inside or outside) he needs to put more weight on or he will be ineffective. As far as becoming a CB I still think he wont be a very gr8 unless he loses a few pounds and increases his closing speed. But he's alreasy the a top 5 safety in the league and in an year or two will be the best ever.

Default Re: Sean Taylor dominates preseason game vs. Broncos

The infatuation with Sean Taylor must end now!

The Texans never had a chance of drafting Sean Taylor. No matter how much of a stud this guy is (and he is), he's still plays safety, making him almost a sort of luxury pick for a team with no pressing needs.

I agree that it sucks, us not getting Taylor. I hated us missing out on a slew of gamebreakers this year. I wanted Taylor and Gallery and Wilfork and Harris and everyone whose last name is Williams or II.

Casserly had other ideas anyway; we've all heard that he coveted Robinson and Babin all along. The man is a genius. Taylor may very well turn out to better than Roy Williams, but the Texans finessed themselves into two potential stars at critical positions (CB and OLB).

It's great fun watching the way this team is being put together, and being there from the start. I think this is the season when we turn the corner and man I can't wait.

Default Re: Sean Taylor dominates preseason game vs. Broncos

My argument for making Taylor a CB is very simple: it takes a freak to cover a freak. Robinson and Glenn are very quick, very fast, and very atheltic. But
when somebody like them has to cover, oh say, a Andre Johnson or a Terrel
Owens, they are at a tremendous phsyical disadvantage in terms of height,
reach, weight, strength, weight, etc. Maybe like having a point guard cover a
power forward, but a PF with the same kind of speed, quickness, etc. as the PG. That's the kind of mismatch I'm talking about.
Now I've read where Taylor knocked out a 4.5 something but can really run
4.4 (or sub 4.4), 'cause he was injured when he got the slow time. He's gotta
have the faster time, or he simply can't be a big time CB. Or make him a backer. Put 10 lbs. (more or less), on hime - he's then up to 'bout 240. That's
a good size for a weakside 3-4 backer.
But don't waste him at safety, atleast safety with the conventional job description,i. e. stand back there when the the action is happening in front
of you (or down the sidelines with corners covering the long-ball WRs). If
he's playing a quasi-LB in some kinda exotic D like the 46 - yea, you're putting his talents to good use 'cause he's up near the line of scrimmage.
I've seen many observations by people knowledgeable about personnel (like
Cass), who've said you usually pick up safeties in later rounds because, well,
the position is just not that important (relatively speaking).

Default Re: Sean Taylor dominates preseason game vs. Broncos

In general, safety's can be found in later rounds. Talyor does not cover the term "in general". What you want to do is take a Ronnie Lott, who was the best player at his posititon, and move him to a new spot, where the results are likely to take him out of the elite range, and ask him to learn a whole new set of skills. He is a FREAK at FS, but at CB or LB, he is no freak. He is just another guy. As a FS, he can act like a 4th or 5th LB on the field, and opposing teams will have to game plan around him. Why anyone would take an elite player, a player with the potential to be another Lott, and try to move him into unfamiliar territory is beyond me.

Sean Taylor had a forced fumble and a fumble recovery against the Dolphins today. He forced the fumble by making a guy pay for catching a slant route in front of him...

He is going to be great....

Did ya see what John McGraw of the NY Jets did to the IND reciever? Broke his arm I believe when he was coming across for a pass. NBA's a contact sport my *****.
