Default So now that Sweed's done for the year (possibly)...

...is there a reason the Steelers don't pick up T.O.? I know this has been discussed before, but I call myself bringing it up again since our WR has taken another hit from Limas Beans' surgery.

T.O. is the reason why. Over rated "legend in his own mind" WR is way past his prime. Led the league in drops last year. WHY WOULD WE????

I don't see where T.O is any better then the receivers we have now. I know Sanders is not proven but I think he will progress nicely. Ward and Wallace will do just fine for us.

Signing TO would be a great added punishment for Ben. TO would go apeshit at Ben for under-throwing him or throwing to anybody else. Say what you will about TO, but he's never been in trouble off the field. He just seems to drive his QB's crazy and most coaches/owners don't like that. Ben probably deserves something like that, though.

You can dislike him all you want.....but to say he's no better than what we got? Are you serious? And overrated? Does anyone remember that he played for the Buffalo Bills last year? Ryan Fitzpatrick at QB and that offensive line. Talk about set up for failure.

Deshea Townsend has a better shot of making the team than TO. Most likely, they share a common fate. Sweed should get a license to sell insurance because he is done.

I agree here and the fact that we need to get back to playing team football. We don't need a guy who is more important (in his mind ) than the rest of the team. I honestly think our receivers will be even better this year. Here's why. Wallace will take over for Holmes who had a good year last year but not great. We improve there. El can spell Hines if necessary and I think Sanders will be a pleasant surprise like Wallace was last year. And I think Brown gives us speed and return ability. Better field position means we can run more and when we throw we'll have the burners in Wallace and Sanders. Sanders was 3tied for second in the 40 at the combine (4.41). Four wide= Hines,Wallace, Sanders, El or Brown.

Would you be a saying that when he drops a touchdown pass that takes us out of the playoffs. He does not have the best hands in the world. I will take Ward and Wallace over him anyday of the week.

And he still led the league in drops. Face it, TO is a cancer and only plays when he wants to. We don't need a player like that.
