Re: Redskins Interested in TO

If Santana was a team player (which I think he is) he wouldn't care. Essentially, Moss would be in single coverage the majority of the time. You can't tell me that a team would leave T.O. in single coverage, he would break the single game receiving mark. In Saunders version of Air Coryell, there will be plenty of balls to go around.

T.O. would be great for so many reasons. How would you game plan for the Redskins offense? With T.O. you get the entire package. He is the prototypical possesion receiver except if he breaks a tackle he is gone. He is too big, strong and fast for any corner in the league. He takes 5 yard catches and turns them into 70 yard T.D.s and the most important part, he is in the prime of his career.

Also, he is an insurance policy. What if either him or Santana gets an injury late in the year? They still have a number one to go to.

If they signed him they would go from turnaround story to the favorite to win the Super Bowl and the best part is they would be taking the most talented player from the Eagles and preventing him from going to Dallas at the same time.

I think it is a risk worth taking.

I wouldn't mind seeing the Redskins getting TO if he can make a positive impact. I don't think the skins are seriously in the mix. We have often been used by agents to get more money and more compensation out of other teams.

Re: Redskins Interested in TO

i hope we do not bring t.o. in. He is the ultimate team cancer, it's only a time before he starts destroying all the chemistry and sanity in the locker room. In the event the skins actually do get him, i will not like him anymore, even if he is wearing the skins uniform. i would hope it's only for a one year contract, anything longer than that spells trouble.

Re: Redskins Interested in TO

This goes against every thing Gibbs is doing here. Gibbs is not just about winning now, he may want to win now but he is building for the future.The team that picks up TO is clearly only worried about the here and now. He will give you maybe one good season(if he can stay healthy) and then he will start his crybaby bullshit tactics until he totally distroys the clubhouse.he is a ME first player in a TEAM sport. This will not happen under Joe Gibbs!

Re: Redskins Interested in TO

I guess the question that you have to ask yourself is whether the current team has enough talent to win the Super Bowl. I loved this year's team. They played like 53 brothers and after beating the crap out of the Seahawks (who I think will win on Sunday) they showed that they were the toughest team in the playoffs.

However, I think that even the most die hard fans would have to admit that the balls bounced their way several times this year. I do not think that the current team has enough talent to win it all (and don't tell me that Randle-El is the key to a title). Now if you add T.O. to the equation and they look like a champion...

Thumbs down Re: Redskins Interested in TO

My take is NO to T.O. Id make a sign but nobody would see it. Hes nothing but trouble. Thats the last thing this team needs a spoiled b*tch ass like T.O. When we got that guy who wore #21 a few years ago (I hope we finished paying off his contract) and now wears #37 in Baltimore I never liked him as a Redskin. I never cheered for him, and yes that includes when he would return a pick or punt for a TD, which I think he only did once or twice. Anyways all Im saying, if T.O. comes here I will not cheer for him. I will not buy his jersey. He is definitely not a Gibbs guy so Im really not that worried about T.O. landing in DC. Id say he'll end up i neither Denver or Miami.

They also were in the Superbowl and had the ball with a chance to win the game but I guess you wouldn't want the Redskins in that position...

since T.O. has been in the league, there have been 19 superbowl teams that didnt have T.O. and 1 that did(and they lost) We don't need T.O.

T.O. will clash with Santana, Santana is our # 1 reciever and wants to stay that way. We need a real good #3 reciever, one that is good enough to step up to # 2 when necessary. If we would have had that type of #3 reciever to step in for David Patten, we would be playing the Steelers this week. We have greater needs on this team than another #1 reciever. How about a pass rusher, depth in the secondary and offensive line.

Re: Redskins Interested in TO

Terrell Owens in a Redskin uniform is something that could work if Owens has been sobered by the appropriate discipline the Eagles meted out.

The Redskins have developed a very strong authority structure based in the coaching staff. Owens requires that to be successful. He didn't have it in SF where Mariucci was basically on his own. The Eagles were strong enough to bite the bullet and sideline him, and that is something they are to be commended for. But they weren't strong enough to find a way to direct him to being a cooperative person.

The Redskins may be his only chance to be successful. Joe Gibbs has such a strong and caring, yet firm presence and the staff has such quality player management people, that if Owens can't make it in Washington, he might as well retire. Owens needs an entirely new kind of situation to reorient himself. And with the addition of Saunders, Gibbs will have more energy to put into player management himself.

I don't really think that Parcells can take him on - he already has his hands full with Keyshawn Johnson, and Parcells doesn't have the support Gibbs does with the staff, (because Parcells prefers to dominate things and doesn't want to share influence with others so much.) Shanahan might be able to manage him ok, but he might not be able to, and in any case, I think it would take up too much of his energy to be worth it to them. I don't think that Herman Edwards wants to kick off his new career in KC with a difficult player like Owens, and their offense is already in good shape anyway.

By the way if the Cowboys pick up a player that would worry me it would be Brett Favre. Favre won't play for Green Bay anymore, and I think Jones will pursue Favre to the utmost when it becomes clear to the Packers they have to trade him or watch him retire.
