    He was just released and looking for a team with a good chance to go to the SB. My logical side says he goes back to NO, but he might be a great alternative to the under performing CJ...Thoughts?

    Much rather have CJ than Horn. Horn is over the hill, he has 6 TDs the last three years. CJ has more upside than a 36yo Joe Horn. And further he is cheaper.

    I forgot. Something anti-Pats, most likely? So what. Marcus Pollard talked sh!t about us and we gave him a shot.

    But no, Joe Horn is an old man who thinks he is better than he is. I'd rather give Chad Jackson a full year to see what he is.

    A couple of things:

    1.) Horn will not go back to New Orleans. Sean Payton is no fan of Horn and will not want him back under any circumstance.

    2.) Horn wants to have a shot at legitimate starting playing time. He isn't going to get it here. He isn't going to be happy being the Pats' 4th WR. He will settle to supplant Welker as the #2 WR. I don't think Belichick would accomodate though.

    3.) I see him going to the Cowboys. It is his first choice. He can immediately win the #2 WR spot. They have a legitimate chance of going to the Super Bowl.

    4.) If Dimitroff doesn't want him in Atlanta, it doesn't give him a lot of hope of coming to the Patriots. Pioli and Belichick hold Dimitroff's opinion in very high regard. If he isn't good enough for the Falcons, he isn't good enough for the Pats.

    5.) I don't want him. This is the second team in two years that he has tried to shoot his way out of town. He might have been a great human being for all he did for New Orleans during the Katrina crisis, but he is whiney, selfish when it comes to football. I'd pass.

    I heard Brady on WEEI about three seasons ago, saying that Joe Horn was doing a lot of trash talking during a pre-season game aginst the Patriots. He was glad Joe Horn is not playing for the Patriots.

    I guess based on Brady's comment, it is very un-likely that Joe Horn be a Patriots.

    Seriously? Are the old defense comments enough, now you want old offense comments too?

    I wouldn't be surprised if the Jets picked up Horn.

    I'm pretty sure Andre Rison and Carl Pickens are still available

    How about CJ and a #2 for Boldin? Feasible? CJ gets a new start and Boldin is the longer term answer to Moss' age. I think the Cards give CJ a shot because he is on the cheap and Fitzgerald has a whopper contract. That would still leave Gaffney as a 40 catch #4 WR I believe.
    People giggled when I said go for Shockey for a #two (which we have two) and a #six. A healthy Shockey is better than what we have.

    SureHorn would fit, he would have looked great on the '92 team.
