    Unbelievable sadness. Thoughts and prayers go out to his family, he didn't deserve this.

    Throws us back into the harsh reality that life is more than a sport.

    Man a sad day. He was just a stud at Miami and was performing pretty well in the NFL too.

    Re: Sean Taylor dead at 24

    I feel very bad for the guy and his family. This might sound callous, but if he's into stuff where he feels the need to have a machete by his bed... this sort of thing might happen.

    Man how terrible, especially if it was a burglary attempt. Does anyone know what went on for sure, I have never heard.

    Re: Sean Taylor dead at 24

    It's really sad that the media keeps bringing up events from the past in regards to Taylor. It seems like they are trying to make him out as a bad guy here and this certainly isn't the time for that.... IF it comes out that there was something shady behind this then let those other things come out as the investigation unfolds... You read some of the stories and it is almost like the media is saying he deserved it... Bad job out of the media.

    I agree - a man died, period. He was shot virtually defenseless.

    Re: Sean Taylor dead at 24

    I haven't really seen any of that from the media, although I've mainly only watched Sportscenter. They've talked a little about his past problems with guns, but that's the truth. Still a very sad day for his family, never want to see something like that happen. I'm a Broncos fan and it makes me remember the day when Darrent Williams died, very, very sad.

    "Eight days before the attack someone pried open a front window, rifled through drawers and left a kitchen knife on a bed at Taylor's home, according to police."

    A break in happened before as well? Why wouldnt they get some security. Sounds like a really bad part of town.

    And the person who broke in left a machete on the bed. It sounds like it was very pre-meditated to me.
