    The guy's cancer and his play is declining, no thanks. I look forward to seeing him go to the Raiders and talk smack about JaMarcus Russell's sexual orientation.

    Cant afford him....

    But for the sake of fun lets dream for a minute...

    How could ANY team defend that? T.O on one side, Moss on the other.... Welker in the slot... Brady at the controls....

    Good god. :eek:

    It's easy to defend that. You put two CBs on Moss, then walk over to Owens and tell him he's the 3rd best weapon on the Patriots. Then his ego will explode and he'll demand that Brady throw him the ball constantly. Owens ruined Tony Romo, just ruined him. Romo has looked like a shell of the QB that he was under Parcells.

    Lose-Lose proposition; TO here benefits neither side.

    Owens and Rosenhaus are looking for one last big big payday.
    Pats are trying to upgrade as much as they can in several areas.
    Wide receiver is not an area of need.


    Perfect fit would be Minnesota or Tampa Bay, or perhaps Arizona if the Cardinals should decide to trade Boldin.

    T.O.'s ego wouldn't allow him to be the 'second' guy.

    Well I would say that if he talked to BB and BB thought that he could be an asset to the team. And tell TO EXACTLY where he would stand if they signed him that he could be a valuable asset to the patriots.

    It probably wont happen but all TO wants is to win a championship, i really dont like the guy but i love the way he plays. By the way he would be coming into a system where he wouldnt even be one of the leaders, so his mouth would have to shut.

    If he is a pain in the ass then just cut him. Sign him to a one year and prove it contract. Would be all over it.

    If Parcells couldnt control him.... Belichick cant either. The apple doesnt fall THAT far from the (coaching) tree.

    I definitely vote for signing TO at any price, so long as we also sign Chad Johnson also......

    The mind is staggered thinking about a Moss, TO, Welker and Johnson catching passes from T. Brady..........

    Classify him as that guy who comes into training camp, plays a few snaps and pisses a few people off. That same day, he needs to have the ever living **** kicked out of him by a defensive captain. Owens needs to have his ass kicked in a bad way if he ever hopes to be a contributor to a team that will contend. Put me into the grouping that thinks what he needs is a good old fashioned passionate ass kicking. He's the quintessential product of an absentee father; no respect for authority, no self respect, no respect for others and most importantly no personal accountability. His attitude is the antithesis of all that is admirable about the game of football. Owens is a cancer, and he needs to be treated a such. You can never let cancer dictate a fight to you. You cannot be intimidated by cancer. You cannot back down to cancer. You cannot play by the rules because cancer does not play by the rules. Any person who would want TO on their team is clinically insane.

    Completely disagree. All TO wants is to be the center of attention. He would have chances at championships in Philly and Dallas if he wasn't such a force of damage.

    Stop beating around the bush: Does TO need an ass kicking or not? And if he does, should it be a bad new style ass kicking or a goold old fashioned ass kicking?

    Only to a deal similar to Stallworth multi year BUT team option after the first year.

    Lets face it, TO is fine his first year with a team. After that things go sour. SB or Bust in '09 and then cut his ass loose regardless of his performance

    WR is an area of need since we don't really have a solid option playing opposite side of Randy.

    Anyway, I have hated TO since the Baltimore trade thing happened and have thought of him as a locker room cancer since. BUT, after watching one 1-1 interview last year (sorry can't remember where I saw it) TO sounded very sincere and talked about the bad media perception and picture people paint about certain players (or in our case coaches) and it sticks with them even if it's not completely true or the person has changed. I felt that he was being very sincere and I related to what happened with the Spygate with BB. We all love BB and the rest of the world thinks he's "evil". Well, maybe we should give TO a real chance.

    Did anyone really expect this stupid poll to be close to anything other than the obvious to keep him the hell off the team?

    I know that I'm in the minority, but I wouldn't mind seeing TO here on a 1-year deal. Watching T.O. and Moss destroy defenses together would be sick.

    It will never happen. I bet he ends up in Minnesota.

    I'd also take T.O. for a 1 year, cheap deal but nothing more. Not neccessarily because I think he'd be a cancer here and is a huge risk worth very little, but because the money we have available needs to go into the defense. I think this team is just way too loaded with leadership to let a guy like Owens come in and rip the team apart like he's done elsewhere.

    Upstater mentioned how he ruined Romo and I partially agree, but I think Brady is far more mentally tough than Romo is and would never allow something similar to occur. Then you've got the massive difference in how much control over the team the head coaches have in New England and Dallas and I think things would be very different if T.O. were a Patriot.

    Oh, and FWIW (maybe very little since I don't trust his NBA reporting, let alone NFL reporting), Stephen A. Smith was just on Sportscenter about 20 minutes ago and said New England is one of the places Owens would like to play.

    How can anyone in their right mind ever even IMAGINE Owens on the same team with Randy Moss? Only if T.O. is administered a lobotomy or has his vocal chords removed by a team physician.

    Too bad he'll never end up with your Green Beans. You don't have a quarterback who can throw that far.
