Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor died early Tuesday from the gunshot wound he suffered a day earlier in his Miami home.
"He did not make it through the night," said Taylor's attorney, Richard Sharpstein, who called the incident "a ridiculous, unnecessary tragedy."
Taylor, 24, a Pro Bowl safety whose rocky first years in the NFL had given way to what teammates called a newfound maturity, died at Jackson Memorial Hospital, where he had been taken after being shot once in the leg early Monday morning. Police are investigating the incident as a possible home invasion.

If the Giants are going to have a chance this Sunday, they better make sure they keep the ball as far away from Devin Hester as possible. The guy's THAT good as the Broncos can certainly attest.

If you're a Giants fan, you have to be greatly concerned about the future of your team with Eli Manning at the helm. It's been about 5 years now and there's just now way you can believe that Peyton's little brother will ever be better than a good QB. And while good QB's can win you Super Bowls (see: Trent Dilfer, Doug Williams, etc.), usually a great defense is also required and the Giants don't have that. Remember too, as the first overall pick of the 2004 NFL draft, it's not asking too much that Eli be better than what he's shown so far.

Nothing against Miguel Cotto who I like and always puts up a great fight no matter who he's facing, but if there's anyone who can stand toe-to-toe with anybody it's Shane Mosley. And he has the knockout power to make sure Cotto doesn't get up. Tonight we'll see.

The Minnesota Vikings have docked wide receiver Troy Williamson one game check for missing last Sunday's game against the San Diego Chargers to attend the Monday funeral of his maternal grandmother. Based on his 2007 salary of $435,000, the action by the Vikings will cost the three-year veteran $25,588. Williamson has 45 days to appeal Minnesota's decision to withhold his pay, and NFL Players Association sources said he will do so.
The team apparently apprised Williamson on Wednesday that he would not receive a paycheck for the game that he missed. "I don't care if they would have [taken] my pay for the rest of the year, I was going home," Williamson told the St. Paul Pioneer Press. "It wouldn't have mattered to me."

Don Shula likes the Patriots' chances of going undefeated, but the Bill Belichick-inspired spying scandal has clouded Shula's thinking when comparing New England with his unbeaten 1972 Dolphins team.
"The Spygate thing has diminished what they've accomplished," Shula said in an interview with the New York Daily News. "You would hate to have that attached to your accomplishments. They've got it."
Belichick was fined $500,000 and the Patriots were fined $250,000 and lost a first-round draft pick for videotaping the Jets' opposing sideline during the teams' season-opening game.
"That tells you the seriousness or significance of what they found," Shula said, according to the Daily News. "I guess you got the same thing as putting an asterisk by Barry Bonds' home run record. "I guess it will be noted that the Patriots were fined and a No. 1 draft choice was taken away during that year of accomplishment. The sad thing is Tom Brady looks so good, it doesn't look like he needs any help."

The NFL commish does the right thing by staying true to his word. Buying some kids tickets to watch you wrestle doesn't come close to showing that you've learned your lesson. Staying out of trouble with the law, getting some new friends and accepting blame for all the trouble you've caused, will.

Ever since he became a Knick I've always liked Jamal Crawford and tonight proved to be another reason why. If the Knicks have any chance of finishing with a winning record this year, somebody needs to step up and make sure they win the gimme's on their schedule. A Minnesota Timberwolves team without Kevin Garnett, at home, is a definite gimme and tonight Crawford made the shots (including the damn free throws) in the 4th quarter to lead his team to victory.

Charlie Weis, championed by the mostly white, male sports media as the next great coming, brings utter shame to the once prestigious Notre Dame football program:
South Bend, IN (Sports Network) - Kaipo-Noa Kaheaku-Enhada and Reggie Campbell hooked up for a 25-yard touchdown pass and two-point conversion in the third overtime, as the Navy Midshipmen snapped an NCAA-record 43-game losing streak to Notre Dame by beating the Fighting Irish, 46-44.
The Irish set a school record with their fifth straight home loss. Roger Staubach was playing quarterback for Navy the last time the Midshipmen won in South Bend, a 35-14 triumph back in 1963.

This new NBA season should be really interesting for a lot of reasons, but mostly because of the Celtics newest addition of the Big Three: Paul Pierce, Ray Allen & Kevin Garnett. Maybe they do need a better point and maybe they will need some more depth to their bench as the season goes forward, but you'd have to be an idiot not to think that as long as these guys stay injury-free, you can count on them to at least be in the Eastern Conference finals. At least, because they're that good.

Damn, to think back in the days I used to have a small crush on homegirl, loved her brash mouth too as when she was on top, she was never afraid to speak her mind. Then again, being a smart ass did garner her share of critics who are probably having the last laugh now after this news.
