    Hated to see T.O. leave the Niners but there is a silver lining in every cloud and the Ravens are screwed now. They traded Robinson to Minnesota, T.O. went to Philly so basically they will throw the ball to Heap who will get double and triple coverage because they have no other reciever on that team. I love it! Die Ravens fan! Couldn't happen to a better team lol

    I agree! I hate them stinking ratbirds. I was originally a die-hard Cowboy hater for many years. Then my hatred moved on to the Jaguars. Although I still despise them 2, I think the ratbirds are on the top of my shitlist now.

    espn said it best:

    "T.O. has learned that if he whines and cries and stomps his feet long enough, he'll get his way...his very self-centered way"

    First i'm a Niners fan. Yes T.O. does throw fits and whines to the press alot but nobody can deny his greatness on the field and he's never been accused of not giving 100%. I'm not bothered by this as its happening to the, to borrow a phrase from Jimmy, "The Ratbirds" lol. You have to live in this area to understand, Ravens fans believe they are a dynasty, 1 super bowl, thats it and they are a dynasty? These people are obnoxious.

    To be a great player, you have to do more than perform on the field. The Field isn't where greatness is created, it's where off-the-field greatness is displayed.

    So you are saying T.O. is not a great or even good player? Because just about every team in NFL was after him.

    I'm saying there's more to greatness than catching passes.

    I'm saying most teams would be better off without him.

    He's one of the top 3 recievers in a league that is wide reciever poor. He cares unlike alot of players in the league who gather their paycheck and go through the motions. I'm not excusing any of the sideline shouting matches which were a distraction but the dancing on the Dallas star, TREMENDOUS! Signing the football on Monday night, HILARIOUS! He's a great addition to the Eagles and if all goes right that should be enough to get them to next level.

    DMP who's your team out of curiosity? I'm guessing Dallas but logic says the Seahawks.
