Stinks to see Hightower done but I am eager to see what Royster can do. Time for Torrain to turn it up a notch.

Who knows. Maybe Sellers will get a chance to take a couple of snaps at Running Back.

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

On the contrary. They did a great job of providing depth across the board. Cooley goes down, no problem we still have Fred Davis. Santana goes down, slight problem but we have plenty of guys that can at least produce. Austin at the very least should be able to step in and have a few good games, and Paul also looks promising.

Loose Hightower, no problem, as we still have Torain and Helu not to mention Royster.

Offensive line depth is also impressive but honestly will not be able to handle another hit. With that said Cook is actually looking like a starting quality Center and Locklear more then held his own. As far as we know now, the group they brought into this year is 7 players deep. Lets hope we don't have to learn if they're 8 players deep.

Defense needs to get back on track though. Ironic to considering they carried the team through the first 5.5 games.

I thought so as well. Little disappointed there.....but they'll come around.
Nice quick assess.......

You got cussed about because you're accusing me of making false assumptions about you, not because of T.O. Everything was fine until you started labeling me as a Hankerson lover and you sticking by your assumptions when I made none of it on my end. You attacked ME and now are turtling. I cussed you out because you didn't even read my posts and you stick by your assumptions over whatever I say. I have no respect for that. NONE. You can believe T.O will be fine for us and I won't care.

But I won't sit idly back and let you you calumniate me and play the victim card when you're lock yourself up in your own ivory tower of ignorance

Gaffney has caught nothing long. Paul is only used for blocking. Austin could step up but why has it not happened previously? We need a possession WR, one who can keep defenses honest and one who will have to be accounted for by the defense to free up AA, Gaffney, Austin or whoever. I don't foresee Hankerson doing that or Stallworth.
T.O's extra 400-600 yards and whatever TDs(possibly 3-4) this season would mean nothing to us this season if we don't get a ton of wins from him. Even if we add him, we're not really in contention for the Super Bowl. We are 3-3 now, and the addition of an aging WR with diminishing skills who does not know the playbook will not make us suddenly go 7-3, finish with a 10-6 record, and take us to the NFC Championship game, or even past the divisional round. You add T.O to increase your win total. I don't see him increasing it that much to be worth it. T.O will not save us from being stomped by one of the "real" contenders like Green Bay or New Orleans.

Those extras yards and touchdowns also do not rollover to the next season. He'll have to start from square one and outproduce Gaffney or Amstrong. That means better stats than either one of them.

Then, there's the matter that T.O is might be a lemon and thus might not better than what we have. His production has decreased(hasn't had a 1000 yard season since he was in Dallas) and he is coming off an ACL injury. His speed is not going to be what it was when he was 27 and he very well may not get that burst back until next season, if he ever does. A receiver with such limited athleticism will not be making a great impact for us.

T.O is well-known for his dropsies too. He even led the league in them in 2006. A drop machine can hardly be considered worthy of a possession receiver role, where sure hands are an absolute necessity.

With so many potential flaws, I see Terrence Austin as much better alternative. He has a rapport with Beck and does NOT drop the ball willy-nilly.

Yeah I made an accusation based on what I was reading. Whether it was wrong or right, is steeped in opinion. You said you aren't fine, I just disagreed. But I dropped the accusation and went back on defending the TO pickup and why I think Hankerson may end up a dud. To which you continued freaking out and yelling.

As a longtime member of this site I think it's pretty ridiculous that I got cussed out over something so incredibly trivial and apparently, that's a-ok, especially when I did nothing but be civil and not hostile towards you in anyway (i.e. cussing and showing my ass) but whatever. It's been real.

Peace.
