Why is the NFL Network not covering this man's funeral? The repeated programming on their can wait for an hour or two. After all, Sean Taylor is one of the NFL's own....

I was on the verge but Lavar just really took me over the edge. I don't think Snyder can compose himself enough to speak. I'm sure that I saw Pete Taylor go over to speak to him right before he was due to speak.

Its hard seeing/hearing the hurt in all of the speakers. Drew really broke apart at the end which was completely moving.

I am watcing the CNN feed and channel 4 is on the TV in the office. Pretty tough stuff. Still, the part that got me the most was when they went out on the field with 10 men.....
...any given Sunday....

RIP #21 Sean Taylor. You will be loved and adored by Redskins fans forever!!!!!

Did you get the sense from LaVar's speech that maybe he wants to return to the Redskins? Just wondering, I kinda got that feeling from his speech. He didn't come out and say it directly, but I seemed to get that feeling.

no. I think he said what he meant. He misses his teammates and left it all behind and is dissapointed in himself for that.

Ya, that's probably a more accurate perspective. I was definitely moved by his speech though. He seemed very humble.

I watched some of it during lunch. Everyone's words were so heartfelt and they moved me to tears.

Personally, I was disappointed with the choir that sang a song more appropriate for a revival service than a memorial service, but, to each his own.

Big Ups to Randy Shannon from the U for keeping his composure. :up:

Did anyone else catch Deion Sanders after the NFL broke from the funural. I believe it was recorded yesterday however they were discussing the redskins and sean and his eyes were completely watery and I could have sworn I saw a tear rolling down his face. I always enjoyed Deion as a showman but I have new found respect for that man.

well thats cool of him but what made me mad is after yesterdays game they showed a clip of Gibbs saying "this is MY FAULT. BLAME THIS ON ME." and litterally 5 seconds after that clip, deion says the problem with the skins is that, and im paraphrasing.. "no one in this organization takes the blame and the responsibility for anything". I just laughed. did he not watch the same clip that aired 5 seconds earlier? Just because you were a good player does NOT mean you are even remotly qualified to be an announcer, analyst, broadcaster or anything that would require rational thought or contemplation. what a complete and utter ass clown.
