Dude I'm with you on this one. If you asked me prior to this season I'd have said no, but I think Shanny can handle him and we need the help. No one else will come as cheap, everyone else will require draft picks.

You know what if we are going to get a WR lets get VJ. Screw TO. I'll pay the price for Vincent if we need a guy that bad. Can VJ be our Andre Johnson? If he can we should get that dude.

I don't think he's going to get that much money anywhere unless a team is desperate (i.e. a wideout blows out his knee during training camp).

Rumor was he was asking like 6 or 7 mill a yr. Recently reports are he would accept a couple of mill less which is supposed to be right around his ball park according to some pundits.

So I'm delusional ? When you watch games and TO is on offense do you notice how free THE OTHER guys are ? That's the point. If we still had last years bum here, I'd say no because he wouldn't take advantage of having him anyway. But we have an actual QB, who can see the field. We have weapons but we always bitch and moan here because we don't have a breakout guy or a true this or a true that. Get someone who strikes fear in the defense, THEN you have Cooley and Davis running free like Witten did, or you have Moss running free like Lee Evans did, or you have Devin and Malcom running free like Freddie Mitchell and James Thrash did. I mean **** guys, we have to get off this high horse that somehow we feel as though we can ride until the cows come home. I want wins, I didn't want to keep a sorry ass QB here just because and I don't want to keep TO off this team,....just because.

Bring TO here,............................................. ..but don't let him wear 81

^^ You seem to be remembering the TO of 3-4 years ago.

At this point he's not a guy that strikes fear in a defense.

Plus, if he were to come here, he'd expect to move right into the starting lineup as no less than the second receiver. Anything less than that, I can imagine him being the true malcontent he is. As usual with him it's risk vs. reward.

Ok so maybe he is not the TO of old, but he still is not Joey Galloway. I'm sorry but you can not tell me a 38 year old should be there over TO. I never have liked the guy, but from a football perspective he has the most left in the tank at the lowest price, especially not having to give up picks, that the Redskins can get.

2009 Season Stats

Santana Moss
Rec-70 Yards-902 TD-3 AVG-12.9
Terrell Owens
Rec-55 Yards-829 TD-5 AVG-15.1
A. Randle EL
Rec-50 Yards-530 TD-0 AVG-10.6
Devin Thomas
Rec-25 Yards-325 TD-3 AVG-13.0
Malcom Kelly
Rec-25 Yards-347 TD-0 AVG-13.9

My Points:
1. Statistically, Moss barely edged out Owens in receptions and yards. Owens dominated everyone else on our roster.
2. Owens played for BUFFALO last year. Who is terrible. Who has no offense. And he still put up numbers better than almost all of our WRs.
3. Owens is motivated to play against Dallas and Philly twice a year and stick it to them.
4. He is by far the cheapest option available to us without losing draft picks and possibly a low salary.

I know he has a storied past and he has not been the greatest locker room presence, but he wants to play, he still can play, and as a football move I think he would be the best option because of what he could bring at a substantially lower price than anyone else we could get. Shanny can handle his ego and personality. I know a lot of people don't like him, I know I never really have. But you have to look at it pragmatically, for what's best for the Skins, and I think this is it.

I think Galloway is here as more of a mentor type. You can't argue he's a much better locker room guy than TO, plus he's much cheaper.

I know he's in kind of a mentor role. I was just trying to make it as a point to people who say he shouldn't be here. It's a roll of the dice in the end, but one I think is well worth the risk.

Well we would have to get an offer in soon, the Bengals reportedly have a deadline to accept the offer by tommorow and the Jets have contacted Rosenhaus to possibly sign him as well. The TO ship is about to sail and we aren't in the plans.

The more you analyze TO to the Skins the more it becomes a REACH. I just don't see how putting him and DM together again when you are trying to rebuild the culture here in DC is a positive thing. It would be a real gamble by MS and BA to have a situation that can become volitale at any time.
