Whenever John Taylor's name is mentioned I get a little upset. Every time I see or here Lynn Swan I think about John Taylor and again I get a little upset. So again I ask why is John Taylor not in the HOF and Lynn Swan is? They both have almost identical career numbers. Maybe the NFL is going to make John wait 20 freakin years like they made Lynn wait before his introduction into the HALL? Something tells me John will have to wait a lot longer if he even gets in at all.
John Taylor was one of my favorite Niners ever. He never did anything but play hard and come up with great game changing plays. I know he won the Superbowl but my 2nd favorite JT play was when he caught a pass and tip toed down the sideline in the regular season cowboy game in 1994. That was the first time we beat them in years at that point and that play put the game away. JT RULES!!!
What little that J.T. may have lacked in pure agility and elite work ethic, he more than made up for with his overall clutchness. Great hands, size, and long-stride speed. He always seemed to be in the right spot at the right time. He also was a pretty good returner. SF may have been spoiled rotten in having Jerry, but we also had many other studs, and J.T. was one of them.
