Stop the Madness, T.O. should be a skin (but he's not, he's a Bengal)
 
This is my final T.O. campaign for the offseason. Owens needs to be in a Redskins Jersey for the next season. Its a fit, we need a big target and he won't cost us draft picks.

Alot of people are hype about the idea of us getting Vincent, but why not T.O.? When you look at the numbers of the two players over the past 3 years Owens is superior and should be a perfect pick up for 2 years. This would give shanny the opportunity to draft a reciever of his choice.

I think T.O. would take an incentive laden contract. People are hanging on this price tag that he supposedly has, however if we invited him in and offered him a contract, most likely he'll take it.

I know I'm gonna get slammed for the thread, but its the right move...
Although he has been a douche in the locker room in the past, he doesn't get in trouble in public. Why not go after T.O.?

I'm not against TO in DC. In fact, I think he handled himself splendidly in Buffalo. The problem is, he's how old? And he wants how much? He still wants stud #1 WR cash -- but he's not the player he used to be. If he has reasonable contract demands, I'd take him in DC. At least we'd have a WR that roughly resembles a valid threat.

No flame from me bro.

People can say all the negative crap about TO that they want but he was a model citizen in Buffalo and he produced at a higher level then Devin/Malcolm with a trio of less talented QBs throwing him the ball. And TO has a legendary work ethic that would be a good example for our young WRs and has a mastery of the WCO passing routes plus he's a good/willing blocker.

There is no doubt that he's old and his skills are declining but a 2 year contract as insurance for the Devin/Malcolm sounds good to me.

I'm not against it but it's obviously up to Shanahan to make that call. As questionable as our WRs may be, he obviously doesn't see the need. And apparently the other 31 teams don't either.

I was on the TO train, but at this point I am solidly in the FO's corner. If they bring him in, great, if not, also great.

We already have two pretty good non blocking tight ends, why bring in T.O.?

No. We don't need a guy who will drop more passes then the rest of the WR corps combined.

I vote for one problem child at a time. I would be fine with T.O. only if Haynesworth comes to camp and behaves himself. If the Skins find themselves dealing with a recalcitrant Haynesworth, I would hope they'd have enough sense to not add another wildcard like T.O. to the mix.

Also, McNabb should have to endorse the move. T.O. would need to know that if he acts up in any way he's gone immediately. We can't have a repeat of the mess T.O. caused in Philly.

Would rather see Thomas and Kelly step up and let Moss be the veteran 3rd receiver presence...but I'm going to be upset if we sign T.O.

Agree. To me if we bring in TO, Thomas and Kelly picks are confirmed fails. The guy is too old, a douche in the locker room, picks himself before the team, a media distraction, and will be overpaid....we already have this guy called Phat Albert, we dont need a guy like that on offense too.

I don't want fear to dictate our moves, I honestly believe everything that has happened this offseason for him and the banishment to buffalo last year will keep him from acting out. TO wants to be in the spotlight and we are his only ticket back into the NFC East

Also T.O. saves us the picks that we would use for the draft. If he doesn't become the number 1 guy at least he will raise the level of competition in DC.

We have J. Gal and he is the same or older. I have no problem with TO I really would like to see him here. All we need is 6 TD from him and he can easily get them.

TO will make most CB and Safeties in the league think of him as a threat. That said he still makes people bite when he cuts on his routes. TO is an up grade from Joey Gal hands down.

I couldn't have said it better myself.

Missed a key word in my post...meant to say not going to be upset if we sign T.O.

I give it 3-4 months before we sign him.
