Well, in his defense, he was actually one of the stars of the team and one of probably 6 players that they were making specific jerseys and selling.
He was picked #5 in the 1st round 3 years ago in the draft (I think) and he made the probowl last year. He was also leading the NFL for interceptions for the year at the time of his murder.
I realize that non-Redskins fans might not have heard of him because he has only been in the league for a couple of years but he also wasn't an average no-name player. Actually, the Redskins traded Champ Bailey for Clinton Portis because Sean Taylor was perceived to have more talent than Champ and fans were talking about him as being the next Darrell Green.
