He could play the ball in the air with the best, but Sean Taylor made a career out of dropping the boom.
In the NFC Championship Sunday night in Seattle, Seahawks safety and Norfolk, Va., native Kam Chancellor did his best Taylor impression. The safety made 11 tackles, put a hurting on Vernon Davis and intercepted Colin Kaepernick to help send Seattle to Super Bowl XLVIII.
Earlier in the week, Chancellor told the Seattle Times he watches Taylor highlights before every game.

The welcome Jay Gruden to Washington tour made a stop at the Verizon Center Saturday night. CSN Washington grabbed an interview with Gruden to talk about his relationship to roundball. Meanwhile, the Pistons beat the Wizards, 104-98.
“If I was a little taller – could jump a little higher – I’d be playing out here today,” Gruden said. “I coached basketball with my kids growing up, man. I love it. I played it in grade school and high school, but that’s where it ended.”
Gruden was astonished by the men on the hardwood.
“Defense, side to side, the lateral quickness, up and down, the dribbling with both hands,” Gruden said. “It’s an unbelievable sport and (has) great athletes across the board.”
The coach sounded as if he’d be open to an audition after the game. John Wall certainly impressed, carving up Detroit for 35 points. Gruden said he’d put the 6-foot-4 guard at safety or wide receiver. He’d stick 6-foot-11 big man Nene at offensive tackle or defensive end.
“Sign ‘em up,” Gruden said.
In the video below, Gruden tells CSN about finalizing his staff, adding depth to the Redskins roster and getting ready for next year.
