January 1 , 2006 -- Sean has 11 tackles and returns a fumble for a TD to beat the Eagles and clinch a Playoff berth . . .

November 5, 2006 -- When all hope was lost, Sean returned a blocked field goal to set up the game-winning kick against

                                    the Cowboys . . .

February 10, 2007 -- Pro Bowl  – Sean absolutely leveled the Punter, Brian Moorman, on a very Ill-advised fake punt . . .

 

He played football the way it is supposed to be played . . .

 

Right now Sean is leading the voting at his position for the Pro Bowl,

and ALL OF US NEED TO VOTE . . . AND VOTE . . . AND VOTE SOME MORE!

By now we all know what happened, and though none of us has gotten the sick feeling completely out of our guts, we have to soldier on and use the game as a Healing Exercise and Rallying Point.

 

 

Washington REDSKINS  vs.  Buffalo BILLS

FedEx Field

Last week, the Defense came to play in a major way.  They held the Bucs to 19 points on a short field ALL DAY, even after enduring 6 turnovers by the )Offense, and holding the Buccaneers to just 15 yards total in the second half.  That is just OUTSTANDING!   Unfortunately, a couple of questionable play calls caused us to need a touchdown at the end, which led to a forced pass and a very untimely, game-ending interception.

 

This weekend will start a season-defining, 5-day stretch with the Bills on Sunday, followed by a Thursday night tilt with the Bears.  A short week is probably what our guys need during this tough time so they can take refuge in the preparation, and take out their anger on the opposing team.  Trent Edwards is back under center for the Bills, and he showed in the Cowboys game earlier that he gets happy feet if pressure is applied.  We need to bring that pressure . . . with Marshawn Lynch at less than 100%, their offensive options are limited at best, so we should be able to bottle them up, but we CANNOT turn the ball over and expect to have any chance.

HAIL!                                                                                                                                                           ..................................................................................John Priddy

From the Washington Post . . .

 

The Redskins will wear Taylor's No. 21 on their jerseys and helmets.  ''I believe #21 will be on every helmet in the league,'' Snyder said.  A moment of silence will be observed before every NFL game this week in honor of Taylor.

 

LET'S ALL HONOR SEAN TAYLOR AND WEAR #21!

The following note was received by Redskin FanTim Taylor . . .

 

 

"Although I am a Dallas Cowboy fan, I hope you can pass this along to your fellow Skins' fans:

He was just 1 year older than I, and he had so much going for him . . . so much that was ahead to look forward to.  Really makes me think about all the lagging I'VE been doing in my life.

As much as I can't stand any of our big rivals, I would never wish anything like this to happen.  So young, so much potential . . . so much heart for the game ...  ...  so sad that it had to be brought to such a horrendous halt.

RIP Sean Taylor

On behalf of myself, and my fellow Cowboys fans, we extend our deepest condolenses to you guys, and the Redskins team."

Thanks-
Rich
