This was TO's reaction after the 49ers dropped their third straight to fall to 1-3 in 2003

It puzzles me to no end how anyone can actually defend this guy.

:confused:

It is when you are the best receiver. Look around the league and look at the other receivers making more than him. Now who fault is it in a sense for him signing the contract? TO and his past agent. Agreed but none the less Philly got a bargin. Too bad-or be thankful- he figured out what other receivers made.

Bullshiat - TO isn't the best receiver, I don't care which way you look at it. A top receiver? Sure. NOT the best.

Had TO played out his contract he would have been the 2nd or 3rd highest paid receiver (with Marvin Harrison and possibly Randy Moss in front of him). Harrison and TO have both been in the league 10 years, Moss has been in the league 8 years.



Owens is a solid THIRD here, even compared to Randy Moss who has two less years in the league.

In addition, there was a feature on the NFL Network at the beginning of the season interviewing cornerbacks on who they thought was the best receiver. The only names mentioned were Harrison, Moss and Owens - but Harrison was virtually the unanimous favorite (all the DBs said his routes were virtually perfect.) So even among the players themselves Owens isn't the best receiver.

Owens got paid exactly what he was worth - he's the current #3 overall receiver in the league, and he got paid the salary to equal that. The stats prove it.

What a jackass to whine about his pay when he's getting precisely what he's worth.

Man that's a good read - thanks for posting it.

Whenever I'm watching TO speak I get the feeling it's one of those, "Help! I'm talking and I can't shut up!" situations. It's like he'll just go and go and dig himself into an amazing hole until someone cuts him off or the show runs out of airtime.

It's really quite humorous watching someone who almost literally can't stop talking.

Re: Portis Endorses T.O. Coming To Washington, Would You?

mheisig- OK OK so he is not the best receiver. BUT I still think that having Moss and TO on the field would be great. I can't argue that he was not a jackass during this year. I think you can credit his agent for that one. I dont think that he was the 3rd highest paid receiver though. I cant rembember who was else was making more but when I heard it I thought what a slap in the face and that is still no excuse to hold out when you have a contract just signed last year. I also think deep down that Philly knew they signed him for a bargin.

Agreed, Seems as though we just went through this same topic just a little while ago, and I really don't see why we continue discussing this guy I don't care who endorses him. Any team would have to want to win very badly to have TO on their team. Granted, he may be a talent but his returns are diminishing because of his charachter.

You've got to be the most naive football fan around to think for an instant that Owens "put his career on the line" for the good of the team. It's also quite unfortunate that there are fans like yourself that support such self-serving antics.

Being a die-hard Skins fan I have hated Philly most of my life, but I have a newfound respect for Reid and the team owner for standing up to such childish behavior as Owens' and make an example of him.

::sigh::

Whatever happened to guys playing because they loved the game and made a more-than-adequate living doing so?
I don't believe that, I think he put his career on the line for a SuperBowl, I know he is selfish but this time I think your wrong, that brother wanted to win a Superbowl, and even though I cheered for New England, watching him play was amazing

And his numbers were great to begin with but had recently been going down, do you think he would handle it the same way Moss has?
Good Point, except we wouldn't had lost 3 games in a row with T.O., period

You want all of your players on the same page as the coaches. TO caused that huge rift. Reid and McNabb want him gone, and a bunch of other players want him back. No matter how you cut it, that ain't good.

Also, in situations like TO when players are asked directly by the Media how they feel about a particular player in a situation like this being welcomed back to the team, they hardly ever mention anything deragatory in reference because that's the smartest way to remain neutral. Some players are naturally going to say they would welcome him back when in reality, that's the farthest thing from the truth.

you don' know that, the skins could lose 3 or more games in a row due to any number of cercumstances. it's situations or scenarios like that that coaches have to be prepared for by having the right kind of players and coaches who are capable of handling and staying positive during such situations.

t.o clearly is not capable of handling or staying positive in a situation such as that.

gibbs would never sign t.o or any player like him.

Re: Portis Endorses T.O. Coming To Washington, Would You?

Sorry didn't get your quote in there, but it was "NO, NO & NO"

Absolutely! He would ruin the unity that we are starting to develop. No doubt he is an incredible athlete. However, he is not of the mold of a "REDSKIN" I hope Vinny does not get his hands in this----please say NO thanks Mr. Gibbs.
