We're praying for you and a speedy recovery Sean. God Bless!


If all the positive and prayer energy was taken away from the Canes and given to Everret and Taylor. I am very happy.

My prayers will be for both.


Great work on the feature article by CanesgirlNC. Thanks for your contributions!

Be strong, Sean, be strong.


Good piece.

Come on Sean make it through!! Hang in there and keep fighting all the way to recovery.


Rock on, Sean, rock on

Very good article. Did U write it 86? Or, is CGNC the author?

It is amazing that the 1st responder was George Mira Jr, another CANE legend.

Hang in there ST. U can win this!


hang in there Sean Taylor...the Legion is pulling for U!

DallasTX Cane

There wasn't. And, he was living up to his draft status in The League also. Just like Jerome Brown.

Crappy way for the Fins to lose.


CGNC gets ALL the credit for the piece on ST. Quick work on an important issue. Great work on her part. Orange and green runs deep, even in NC, and especially in CGNC.

Please read the article again - more material added and new photos up if you missed them the first time. More photos and material to follow...


I was at the great MUD BOWL game at the Doak in Tally with Mrs. 86 on the cold and rainy day that #26 showed he was a man playing against boys. He simply took that game over by himself. FSU had no chance.

His INT return for a TD was nothing short of spectacular and without a doubt one of the best plays I have ever seen, before or since.


Sean Taylor's player page at the Redskins site. Great pics there too from Redskin and Hurricane games.



Best wishes to ST and the Taylor family. You are in the thoughts and prayers of the Cane faithful tonight.


Best wishes for a speedy recovery Sean Taylor.


Great job Canesgirl.... Prayers and quick recovery to Sean taylor.

Sean Taylor is one of the freaks of nature that show up periodically in 'Canes mythology, and particularly in the late Butchian Epoch. Guys who are both big and really, really fast, in a way that just doesn't make sense. Other examples include Andre Johnson and Willis McGahee. Earlier examples include Edgerrin James, James Stewart, and Yatil Green.

Certainly, he's the most physically gifted safety, like, ever. He's what? 6'2" or so, and 235? Running a 40 in the 4.4s? With a big vertical? (See e.g. his combine numbers from Wikipedia.) That combo doesn't come around every decade.

I hope he's OK.

ESPN Radio just said Sean has passed away. I am speechless, so sorry for his family.


Oh My God----Sean Taylor has died! All of our hearts are broken. This damn violence has got to stop. We must pray for his family and for his soul.


Another blow to the Hurricane Family. I cant remember a more difficult time with this program.

Thoughts and prayers with the Taylor family...


Sean Taylor has pass away :(


Mary lou - ditto, so young, so much life to give. So Sorry! Man this stinks!


Unf%cking believable...

Why why why???

I hope they catch those f#cks and FRY THEIR ASSES.

From the Flores Family to the Taylor Family... Our love, thoughts, and prayers.


This is the worst feeling...

I'm tired


Tears are streaming down my face--I'm turning ESPN tv on now to see what they have to say. We have to catch the bastard that did this. His poor little girl. I hope the entire Hurricane football Family comes to Florida for his funeral and that includes all the guys who played with him during those glorious years.


Zakkee - I agree - draining actually. Thoughts and prayers to the Taylor family.


86 - check yur email


Rest in peace and the blessings of the almighty be with you..


God bless Sean, my all time favorite. Feel horrible right now. RIP bro


RIP Taylor another young man taken from this world way to early.


Sean...the Legion of Hurricane fans will miss U.

Thanks for the great memories wearing the U and the orange and green.

You will NEVER be forgotten...

Sarasota 'Cane

Rest in Peace Sean!! We will miss U!!


Sean I am sure U were welcomed with the words. Thank U my faithful servant.
We will miss U.
Say hello to Bryan for Us.
God Bless U!
See U in paradise brother!
U yesterday
U today
U tomorrow


First Pata, now this....RIP ST. You will be missed


I'm sorry to hear that one of our greatest ever lost his life this morning. At age 24 with so much life ahead of him it's a damn shame. My prayers go out to him and his family. Especially the child that he had.


I heard it on the radio today, and I have to say I was not expecting this outcome. It seems like just yesterday he was playing against FSU making plays and INTs. It shows how fast our lives can be taken away. We will remember you as one of the best players in Miami history. God bless his family.


God bless Sean Taylor and the Taylor family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
The U family mourns your loss, you will never be forgotten.


If everyone cared and nobody cried
If everyone loved and nobody lied
If everyone shared and swallowed their pride
Then we'd see the day
That nobody died


To one of the best You will be missed but not forgotten

Sean Taylor, RIP – Miami Police do your job. Don’t let this be another Bryan
Pata case of very poor police work.

Mike "U"

RIP Sean Taylor Probably my favorite cane in the last 8 yrs.... outside of Ed Reed I think the hardest hitting safety out there... RIP


We can't all be heroes because somebody has to sit on the curb and clap as they go by.

26! Pray for us for we all hope to see U again!!!


You made me believe RIP


RIP Sean. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. This one hurts a lot. Sad, sad, day for the U family.

Alex D

My condolence goes out to the Taylor family. May Sean rest in peace, now we need to find out who those cowards are that slained both Bryan Pata and Sean Taylor.

Seoul Cane

To the Taylor family, I am truly sorry for your loss. We will miss you, Sean. RIP #26. Another terrible day for the U family and for humanity as a whole.


R.I.P. Sean Taylor!!!!



For everything there is a season,
And a time for every matter under heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die;
A time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
A time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
A time to embrace, And a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to seek, and a time to lose;
A time to keep, and a time to throw away;
A time to tear, and a time to sew;
A time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate,
A time for war, and a time for peace.



This isn't right. This isn't fair. May God bless the Taylor family in this time of tragedy, and Sean, be at peace in a better place. You will be missed.


Dear Sean Taylor - You didn't know me and I only knew what I saw of you on TV or read in the newspapers/online. I don't know what kind of person you were, but I thank you for the time you spent at UM. You provided, for me and the Hurricane Nation, endless moments of happiness, surprise, shock and awe. Your performance in "that" game against FSU is the stuff of legend. I am deeply saddened by your passing and hope for quick closure to this case. To your family, my thoughts and prayers are with you for your loss.


I'm devastated by the news of Sean Taylor's passing. He was so young and had so much to live for. I hope that the PD finds out who did this to him - the fact that his dad is the Florida City police chief can't hurt.

Rest in peace, Sean.


RIP Sean Taylor #26 You will be missed. God bless your family
