Yep, and when TO was with the Cowboys and they came to the 'burgh ... he was a no show and we beat them. He's old, slow and sux ... don't worry about it.

A no show? He caught a TD on Ike in the back of the endzone. T.O. is NOT slow, you guys let your hatred for a guy cloud your vision. lol

You're absoutley correct. It is legit to point out that TO has a drop problem and that when he sours up and starts throwing tantrums his performance diminishes. Hell it's even fair to mention that he may hurt his team by bitching about not getting enough balls thrown his way, but you can't knock the guy for his game. Calling him washed up etc. is just the biased talk of a divional rival. He is a tough receiver and should pose a threat especially if he stays happy all year. Nobody expects him to be as dominant as he was with the eagles or his first year with the Cowboys but he can still play.

he needs to be accounted for, and he may pose a problem. but remember in that game he made multiple mistakes and was mostly a non-issue. he made that catch(although well played) on Ike, because we couldn't get to Romo, and he had an hour and a half to throw the ball in the red zone. It was (and this hurts me to say this) more of Romo's play and an eventual defensive breakdown. we shall see now that we play him twice this year.

TO did not present a huge distraction in Buffalo and yet they made very little effort to bring him back. All I'm saying is the Ocho and TO of today are not the passing threat the old Chad, TJ and Henry the Bungles posed for us of years past. I'm less concerned about these two clowns than I was about the old passing attack. And I'm not worried about seeing TJ go to the Ratbirds after being cut by Seattle when the Ratbirds dump Mason. Say what you want about that Mason, but he was a true thorn in our secondary's side. Flaco would lean on him during games like an old one legged hunchback leans on a crutch.

Ben being out might serve to keep the defense off the field. If we are successful "featuring the run", our defense will be on the field less and ready to impact as they are designed to do. When that defense is "on", they can shut anybody down. That comes from pressure that prevents plays.

On a related note, MTs statement that Ben isn't necessarily starting upon his return, coupled with Artie's earlier message to MT "to run" signals that. If our defense is only on the field for 25 minutes or so, we'll have no problems with all those pass attempts.

I disagree. T.O, Ocho, Shipley and Gresham (Go Sooners) are a way better tandem
