    Chester Taylor shows the mettle that has gotten him from the projects to the pros.

    Very nice read... You can tell just by looking at Chester Taylor that he is humble man.. I highly doubt we will ever hear of his name getting into trouble off the field, or on it.. Good to see that he accomplished his goals, now hopefull he will set a new goal, rushing for 2,000 yards and 20 td's.. Now that is one goal I hope he reaches.

    It is always nice to read the hardships that some of these guys go through and how they pull through and make something out of it.
    So many don't know what to make of a tough situation.

    I expect great things in the future from Chester .

    Chester's been one of my favorite guys ever since we got him. I love having a feature back rather than back-by-committee, and Chester's seemed like a good guy who works hard.
    WE CAN BUILD ON THIS!!!

    In AP I trust

    I agree with that.. One comes to mind though that I don't care to hear about over and over again..

    While Chester Taylor suffered hardships in his earlier days, and he was able to do nice things for his family, that is a happy ending to a hard life.. Chester remains humble, and doesn't even like talking all that much, he goes about his business without much of a pat on his own back..

    On the other hand.. I have had to hear about Donald Driver living in the back of a U-Haul trailer while growing up for about the millionith time.. That is not by any means a great way to grow up, but he went about it totally different then Chester Taylor did.. He chooses to talk smack any chance he gets, gets up and does his stupid little dances, and motions when he gets a first down.. He pats himself on the back any chance he gets, and is very cocky..

    Do all of you remember when Chester got that 95 yard td run against Seattle? He looked up, unsnapped his helmet strap, and put his hands on his hips.. That was the celebration for a 95 yard td run, that is it.. If guys like Driver pick up 10 yards, they think they just won the SB.. That is the difference between guys like Chester taylor, and guys like Donald Driver.. Chester is humble and thinks he needs to do more to be recognized, while Driver is cocky and thinks everyone should think highly of him like he does himself..
