This is about the never ending search for the best beer in the world. And that beer is apparently everywhere. Want me to try the beer you like or make? Great, tell me how to get it.

November 28-- More on the day after

The team has signed WR Jimmy Farris to take the roster spot of Sean Taylor.. Also the team elevated LB Matt Sinclair from the practice squad.. T Kevin Sampson was released.. WR Burl Toler was signed back to the practice squad to replace Sincalir..

Injury list from Wednesday.. Out of practice: RB Clinton Portis (general soreness), DT Cornelious Griffin (foot), G Pete Kendall (ankle), FB Mike Sellers (back), WR James Thrash (ankle)..
Limited in practice: WR Santana Moss (heel), WR Antwaan Randle-El (hamstring)..
G Randy Thomas (triceps) took part in full practice, there was no word whether he would be able to play this weekend..

The Bills injury list is lengthy, among the most notable: DE Chris Kelsay (ankle), RB Marshawn Lynch (ankle), WR Roscoe Parrish (illness), TE Robert Royal (ankle), S Donte Whitner (player decision).. All were held out of practice...

Following practice today, a strangely quiet practice (under the circumstances it was understandable) we heard our first contact with players who were willing to speak with the media.. DE Phillip Daniels fought back tears as he sturggled with the idea of "not having Sean taylor in the huddle anymore."
London Fletcher was particularly poignant and strong (he has dealt with an adverse ammount of tragedy in his life) and said that he had "wished people got to know the Sean Taylor we got to know in the locker room." Lb Marcus Washington shared his memories sying Sean was a very patient and gentle man.. He said that when he would introduce Taylor to his family and friends that Sean was often very kind to his kids and that often people would ask him afterward, "Is that really Sean Taylor?"

Fletcher said "nothing was normal about today," that it was very difficult to focus during practice and meetings.. Joe Gibbs said the day never began to have a semblence of normalcy but he did feel as if "once the team got back to work, things began to feel better."

The players said Taylor's fiance Jackie spoke about how much you must embrace life because it can be too short.. Pedro Taylor also shared with the players how much he enjoyed being part of their team and how much his teammates meant to him..

There was a story floating about how Taylor (with a sprained knee) rode his bike for 30 miles while in Florida as he continued to recover form his injury while not with the team.. Marcus spoke of Taylor being a person who even if his workouts and preparation were done, was someone who would join him if he was about the continue his prep work.. Taylor's work ethic was a point of emphasis today as well..

RB Clinton Portis, WR Santana Moss and the bulk of his secondary teammates declined to speak today many of them too broken up to sare their thoughts.. We will see how tomorrow goes in that regard..

Every player I spoke to said they wanted to play this weekend for Sean because thats what he would have wanted..
I saw owner Dan Snyder today and expressed our concern and shared sorrow for the loss.. Joe Gibbs remained very strong in the face of the adversity, he called the day unique and continued to express that the team is "living hour by hour."

Until tomorrow..
