A Touch of Class: Part Deaux

Another honor for Taylor, the other day:
it was agreed they should pick Washington's Sean Taylor posthumously as the NFC's starting free safety. The Vikings weren't the only ones thinking that way since Taylor, who died a day after being shot in his home in Miami on Nov. 26, was named the starter on Tuesday.

"It was the right thing to do, and not only because of the tragedy," Vikings backup quarterback Kelly Holcomb said. "The guy was a good football player who was leading the league in interceptions [five] before he passed away. This is just one more chance to honor his memory."

Redskins coach Joe Gibbs said, "It meant a lot to everybody around here" that so many opposing coaches and players helped Taylor earn his second Pro Bowl selection. Players and coaches can't vote for members of their own team.
I hear the Redskins already have a play the NFC All Pro's could use their first time on Defense. I think it is a no brainer that they run it run more time. We'll find out in February.
