Friday Notes, Links, And An Update To The Side Dishes Thing

Posted by Matt Terl on November 27, 2009 – 2:19 pm

A few quick notes on this exciting Black Friday:

  • Per head coach Jim Zorn, DeAngelo Hall is out for Sunday’s game against the Eagle. Benched CB Carlos Rogers will get the start in his place. Albert Haynesworth is a gametime decision, Todd Yoder and H.B. Blades are questionable, and Mike Sellers was limited after being kicked during practice but should be okay by gametime. Mike Williams is expected to be available, but Edwin Williams will get the start at right guard.
  • That list, of course, does not include Clinton Portis and Chris Cooley, who have already been declared out for Sunday.
  • An URGENT UPDATE to my Thanksgiving side dishes post: Reed Doughty asked me to let the world know that his mother told him in no uncertain terms that she did NOT make Stove Top stuffing at Thanksgiving. “Sorry, mom,” Doughty said.
  • Two more links on the second anniversary of Sean Taylor‘s passing: the South Florida Sun-Sentinel’s Ethan Skolnick talked to Santana Moss about Taylor, and the Free Lance-Star’s Rich Campbell asked a few of the guys about it as well.
  • Also, because some people apparently missed in on Twitter on Wednesday, the team has signed quarterback Richard Bartel to the active roster from the Jacksonville practice squad, released practice squad QB Andre’ Woodson, and filled his spot on the squad with FB Jonathan Evans (who spent some time with the team in preseason).

A New Sean Taylor Tribute

Posted by Matt Terl on November 27, 2009 – 11:27 am

I didn’t see it in time for the last post, but the folks at Redskins Broadcast Network put together a tribute video for this second anniversary of Sean Taylor’s passing, including some impressive plays that I had forgotten. [UPDATE: I’m now being told it was made for the TV shows for the first anniversary of Taylor’s death, last year.]


Also, Larry Michael invites fans to drop off flowers or memorials at FedExField, after the jump. Read more »

Friday, November 27: Two Years Since Sean Taylor Passed

Posted by Matt Terl on November 27, 2009 – 10:39 am

It’s been two years now since Redskins Pro Bowl safety Sean Taylor passed away, but the team continues to memorialize him, formally and informally.

His lockers remains intact both at the stadium and the training facility; many of the players regularly wear shirts commemorating Taylor under their jerseys; his Defensive Player of the Week parking spot remains reserved; and, yet again, the team has had Taylor’s number 21 painted on the grass outside the main entrance to FedExField, where fans are invited to leave whatever memorials they see fit.

More tributes below. Read more »
