Brian Moorman reflects on huge hit from Sean Taylor

Bills punter Brian Moorman joined PFT Live on Thursday, primarily to talk about the jersey he’s auctioning for tornado relief efforts in Joplin, Missouri (more on that in a separate post).

Moorman also talked at length about the moment for which he’s arguably most famous — the massive hit he absorbed from the late Sean Taylor during the Pro Bowl that ended the 2006 season.

Getting up and walking away from that was enough for Moorman to be forever recognized not as a punter, but as a real football player.

    I must say it was pretty funny to see Sean Taylor blowing people up in a meaningless game. He was a hell of a player too

    RIP Sean Taylor. Best Safety to play the game, EVER.

    Hopefully, Moorman has learned how to brace before being hit.

    @domeunit it was also funny to see him do that in the regular season too. Dude was a meast!

    Moorman Isn’t just a Punter…

    He has time and time again put his body on the line just for that simple first down.

    He has thrown a TD pass.

    Biggest of all, he is a team leader all the way.

    Brian Moorman rocks!!!

    Go Bills!!!

    Moorman is a jack-of-all trades. He’s was a college sprinter, and he has showed his wheels off on more than one occasion. He also doesn’t have that bad of an arm. True “Special”teamer.

    As usual, skins fans need to chill out with the “best safety, ever” stuff. Sean Taylor was a great hitter, who was positionally unsound in coverage but had a lot of raw talent. He was robbed of a promising career in an absolute tragedy. But since that tragedy he’s somehow morphed into a hall of famer, in the minds of many inside the Beltway. I don’t think that’s disrespectful.

    Moorman is an amazing punter, one of the only game changers at the position. Never noticed a punter before, then went to see the Pack play at the Bills. After awhile i realized every punt i was like “holy shi—-“….they would never come down and the packers had to go on long drives every posessesion just to get to midfield!!!!

    Eddie says that Sean Taylor is the greatest safety ever. I guess he has never heard of Ronnie Lott, Ed Reed or Troy Polamalu

    I agree, as a Skins fan, we shouldn’t be claiming Sean Taylor as the best safety ever. But I think any Skins fan, or anyone who followed his career and how good he was getting could aknowledge that he was turning into a really great player. He was beaten in coverage sometimes because he was looking for the big hit too often, but he has getting alot better and he was only 25. We might drink the Kool-Aide in DC, but we know how great he could’ve been.

    That’s fair. I’m a displaced Bears fan in DC, so I saw him play a lot too. He was a great player, no doubt, but it was way too early to call him the best ever. Could have been in the same league as the best in the game by now, but was robbed of a very bright future. That was my only point.

    It was always a blast to watch Taylor play. I am a Skins fan, and followed his career. He was a great hitter, but was only getting better in coverage until the tragedy. He was a really good player that had the potential to have an amazing career and be one of the best Safety’s in the NFL.

    RIP #21 us skins fans Miss seeing ya out there on sundays!

    Like Lott, Taylor made a rep on making huge hits on people who were not looking. How tough is that to do. The fans went wild when Lott laid a big hit on the Giants TE Bavaro, AFTER he was already being tackled by 3 other guys. But I remember a game against the Giants. Lott tried taking on Bavaro one on one, AND HE LOST big time. He was pretty much run over.

    Frisco fans don’t like to talk about that too much.

    Ronnie Lott was the greatest saftey ever. Ed Reed and Polamalu a close second and third. That is fair to say. But anything that has anything negative to say about Sean Taylor is just a moron. Had the guy finished his career, there is not a doubt in my mind he would have finished as the greatest safety to ever play the game. He was a freak, he had the size of a linebacker and the speed of a corner. None of the guys mentioned above could say that. Sean Taylor would have ascended to the greatest safety ever, possibly having his name is the same conversation as lawrence taylor and ray lewis
