At this point, I’m not sure there’s much more to say. Or that we can say. It’s a horrible, awful, infuriating tragedy. Maybe we’ll try to make sense of it all later.

Update: La Canfora describes the scene this morning at Redskins Park, where fans are gathering to mourn:
“The flags here were lowered to half-mast this morning, and a group of fans arrived very early, standing by Sean Taylor’s parking spot, marked with his No. 21, and they are now gathered at a field near the security gate here.”
Update II: My alarm went off at 8 AM this morning. The TV was still on ESPN from last night. I rolled over and the very first thing I saw today was the Taylor news. Maybe I should’ve set my alarm for 8:02, seeing as SportsCenter only covered the topic for 60 seconds before moving onto their incredibly boring MNF coverage. Pathetic.
Update III: Even if you’re as white as Jamie and I, you’re still gonna want to read SVP Style’s take on what Taylor’s death means to Black America.
Update IV: Jason Campbell’s words and emotions pretty much echo those of the players and fans (after the jump).
