NFL  > General NFL  > T.O. signed by S.F.

So San Fran has released Edwards and now what? There is clearly a game plan that Harbough has but no one seems to know yet. If the Niners are going to make a Real push for the Superbowl then they will need someone to actually catch the ball when the season is on the line. They cannot expect that short 5 yd passes is going to get the job done against the likes of Brees and Rodgers. Eventually Smith is going to have to throw the ball down the field to make some real plays when their season is on the line. In other words, they are going to need an experienced WR. What free agents are available that can step in, Moss, T.O.? T.O. might be an emotional drama queen but he can have an impact on the remainder of the games. If nothing else teams will be focused on covering him which will open up the secondary. But will T.O. have a negative impact worse than Edwards was for the remainder of the season? How much damage could he really have when he is hungry to play for any team?

Wow, you took a lot longer to speculate on this exact topic than I did yesterday in the thread you started. You get zero points for creativity. In fact, you owe me for stealing my material.

Duke, no points to take from a poster with one comment. I'm surprised you're not digging in the attic for your old T Owens SF jersey and getting it pressed and ready for the play-offs! I'm feeling it ....it's nearly a done deal! Gonna be sweet to see.

Actually cool hand Puke you never said anything on my thread yesterday and if you don't believe me just take a look. Stephen A. Smith was the one that proposed the idea and personally I like the idea. That is why I started the thread so as to get more opinions of the pros and cons of the signing if it should happen. Either way S.F. needs to do something and it is going to pure speculation until they make a move. Moss, Owens who else is there that could step in on last moments notice and actually have a positive impact vs a negative one.
So what kind of points do you get (since apparently there is a pointless point system you have created) for being a complete num-nut?

I must say.....yes I watched First Take but I never took at as being an original idea. It is a conversation worth having. T.O. is literally hungry and he is not going to be as much of a distraction for the remaining 3 games at least not in the locker room. Edwards was cut because of his attitude and for the fact that he was catching the ball and then dropping it. T.O. is not going to do that since he has three games to make enough of an impression to get signed by some other team for at least a one year contract. He is going to go up for that ball and come down with it and he is going to run like he is running to the bread line at the end of the month. I would just like to see the Niner's get one more offensive weapon before the playoff's and they will have a bye to get him up to speed. It's a deal worth looking at.
