braves on the warpath
Well, it looks like talented Redskins safety Sean Taylor has just turned himself over to police in Miami-Dade. ESPN is reporting that it's for a felony count of aggravated assault with a firearm and a count of simple battery, but the cops aren't yet confirming that. There seems to have been some shooting, but nobody was hurt. Well, Coach Gibbs did say he was going to have the team use the shotgun more. HAH!
Anyway, it's nice to see that Sean's been keeping himself busy. You might remember that Mr. Taylor has declined to participate in the Skins' "optional" workouts, or even pick up the phone to let the team know where he was. His buddy from Miami, Clinton Portis, assured us that Sean was just letting off some steam. In retrospect, someone probably should have asked for a clarification.
Oh, and those optional workouts? The team posted video of them on their website, showing drills being conducted with contact -- which under league rules is a no-no for these kinds of offseason gatherings. It's likely that the Redskins will face some sort of sanction as a result.
I find all of this highly encouraging. The team's had great offseasons and terrible uh, onseasons, for years now. And if one gets worse, clearly the other is likely to get better. C'mon, you went to elementary school. You remember Opposite Day. That's how these things work, right? Right?
