If they can mess up Sean Taylor's jersey retirement this bad, what the hell is the new name going to be?— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) October 15, 2021
Gabe Taylor, who wears No. 26 at Rice to honor his brother's playing days, on his next 2 days:— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) October 15, 2021
"I play. The game ends. I'll go with my parents, we drive to Austin. If I'm not mistaken I'll fly to Washington the same day or I'll wait till Sunday AM and fly. But I will be there."
This is Sean Taylor's brother.— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) October 15, 2021
I haven't heard from any alum saying they were definitely aware of a broad Sean Taylor ceremony more than a 2-3 weeks ago and nothing definitive on the retirement aspect at all.
But this is his family saying this. https://t.co/xK2AqXlSGx
Sean Taylor is the ONLY thing that this franchise/fan base has had in the last 25 yrs that is 100% undisputedly better than any other team had the NFL.. -And now he is just going to be honored randomly in front of mostly Chiefs fans… -This is not the right way to do this.— Frank Holden (@HoldenHustle) October 15, 2021
Unfair that Rivera has to answer this question and not Wright.— michael phillips (@michaelpRTD) October 15, 2021
But “you can’t change anything” rings hollow. Dedicate the street Sunday. Retire the number next year.
Do it right. https://t.co/P8ytVnKmgy
"You can't change anything"— Paul Conner (@P_ConnerJr) October 16, 2021
Ron Rivera was asked 20 questions today and 9 of them weren’t about football. Those topics ranged from poor attendance to emails to the DEA and Sean Taylor’s jersey retirement.— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) October 15, 2021
Kudos to Ron for answering everything and doing it well, but that’s not ideal with KC coming to town.
I really hope despite the chaos of this week that Sunday turns out to be a memorable/positive experience for Sean’s family. #WashingtonFootball— Kevin Sheehan (@kevinsheehanDC) October 15, 2021
Rivera said moving on from the past has "been a challenge." He said he knew it was part of the deal and knew what he was getting into... But says with the info that comes out "it makes the challenge a little bit bigger."— John Keim (@john_keim) October 15, 2021
Simple question for Washington fans - do you believe the team had planned for months a surprise jersey retirement for Sean Taylor that would not have Joe Gibbs present and only had 10k memorable towels?— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) October 15, 2021
Yo, the Ryan Vermillion drug raid feels like it was months ago but it was last Friday— Paul Williams (@FiftyGutBlog) October 15, 2021
(1/3) FWIW, this is what I was told about the Sean Taylor jersey retirement situation:— Nicki Jhabvala (@NickiJhabvala) October 15, 2021
-Plans were finalized about 2 months ago
-Alumni were contacted around that time
-There was concern it would leak out earlier. Mistake in hindsight. Would've been great if fans knew earlier.
(3/3)— Nicki Jhabvala (@NickiJhabvala) October 15, 2021
-Team prez Jason Wright left a meeting early to address the reaction.
-As he wrote in his apology, they realize now it should've been announced long ago so fans could make plans. They screwed that up.
-It was important to the Taylor family to keep it scheduled for Sunday.
They wanted to keep it a surprise. Why they thought a surprise would be better than announcing early is mind-boggling, but ♀️— Nicki Jhabvala (@NickiJhabvala) October 15, 2021
We are finally here! The countdown to Sean Taylor "Jersey Retirement" Weekend has been a blast! Months of building up to this has been special. Can't wait for Sunday! Show starts at 6am on @team980. #WashingtonFootball— Kevin Sheehan (@kevinsheehanDC) October 15, 2021

Game status:— John Keim (@john_keim) October 15, 2021
WR Curtis Samuel
LB Jared Norris
OT Sam Cosmi
OG Brandon Scherff
WR Cam Sims
WR Terry McLaurin (hamstring)
TE Sammis Reyes (back)
WR Dyami Brown (knee)
One addition to the game status report:— John Keim (@john_keim) October 15, 2021
RB Antonio Gibson (shin) is questionable
Curtis Samuel’s groin was an issue long before he signed with Washington.— Ryan Fowler (@FowlerRyan1) October 15, 2021
Teams knew of the potential extent and offered less, but his prior relationship with Ron in Carolina presented his clearest avenue to market value.
He’s been a massive disappointment.
I get that this is not exactly the biggest thing happening for #WashingtonFootball right now, but Brandon Scherff being out again will mark his 18th missed game out of 54 #WFT regular-season games since the start of the 2018 season. That’s 1/3 of the games that he has missed.— Al Galdi (@AlGaldi) October 15, 2021
Rivera said if they were truly concerned about McLaurin's hamstring, they probably wouldn't have had him on the side field at all today. Good news. He said it was an "abundance of caution."— Matthew Paras (@Matthew_Paras) October 15, 2021
If Terry McLaurin is out on Sunday, then I am also out on Sunday— Jordan Asri (@wfteamjordan) October 15, 2021

If Tyreek Hill doesn't play Sunday it really changes things— Mark Phillips (@FballTeamReview) October 15, 2021
Instead of Tyreek Hill torching us for 12 catches, 175 yards and 2 TDs his replacement will do it

Losing sucks. I get it. But almost everyone predicted #Eagles to lose, so not sure I understand the outrage.— Geoff Mosher (@GeoffMosherNFL) October 15, 2021
Of course they need to run more, but would 8-10 more carries have won the game?
Would the tone be different today had they lost w/a more balanced offense?

Zach Ertz leaves the #Eagles just 10 receptions short of Harold Carmichael for most in franchise history.— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) October 15, 2021
Ex-WFT Prez, NFL General Counsel Secretly Claimed Players Were Too Lazy to Vote https://t.co/F3kZ6jAsB0— TMZ (@TMZ) October 15, 2021
The revelations in recent days about what Jeff Pash, Bruce Allen and others have said in private are both disrespectful and unacceptable in our sport, business and society and I have relayed my thoughts directly to the Commissioner with respect to this latest email release.— DeMaurice Smith (@demauricesmith) October 16, 2021
Our players deserve a full accounting of any other NFL misconduct, which is why we once again call for the league to release all of the emails from the Washington investigation. Any evidence or knowledge that this has been suppressed must be brought to light.— DeMaurice Smith (@demauricesmith) October 16, 2021
Lot of protecting going on by the @NFL & @nflcommish under the guise of protecting those who came forward. No need. They have wanted public accountability. The only people we're protecting are those with a lot of $$ & influence. https://t.co/CY4F7hc0rD— Chris Russell AKA The Rooster (@Russellmania621) October 15, 2021
I always find it fascinating that in the NFL, the compensation of players is well known and it's not so for the coaches, while in college football it's the opposite. https://t.co/vsspkeQl6h— Nick Korte (@nickkorte) October 15, 2021
