As a devoted Cowboys fan, it isn't hard to fathom why I would despise the Washington Redskins. It is an organization run by a midget tyrant whose sole goal in life is to be the George Steinbrenner of the NFL. They have the worst team name in professional sports and have been a thorn in the Cowboys side since time and memorial.
And up until today, Sean Taylor was the epitome of what I hated about the Skins. He was a cocky player with a nasty reputation coming out of The U. He didn't have the solid game to match the hype. But what happened today was tragic and I sincerely wish him nothing but the best. Right now, his biggest battle will simply be surviving. But if he is able to play again, I will stand up and cheer for his courage....and then hope that Jason Witten flattens him on the way to the end zone.
