Now that T.O. is history...

I think this is an interesting list. If I were an Eagles fan, I'd look at it as a mixed bag. The problem is, any positives during his tenure, including the SB year, will always be marred by how terrible an ass he was...and perhaps, his lingering affect on McNabb.

Such is a Philly fans' fate.

1 Trip to the Super Bowl, thanks in part to him

Sorry boys. Just tired of hearing about this ****. I'm going to miss TO but it's time to cut our losses and move on. I gotta support my boy McNabb now.

:cheers:

Hey Who Del -- know why McNabb eats his Chunky Soup from the can??

Because every time he gets near a bowl, he chokes!!! Bahahahahahahahahaahah!! :laugh:

(TO told me that one ;))

T.O. has the potential to be one of the best recievers in the game, he's extremely confident, he's a man child, and he has proven time and time again he's very skilled at what he does.

The problem is, harnessing a guy with so much energy like T.O.

He needs a coaching staff and a team that is going to fit the style of football he plays, intense and carefree. This man has made it to the pro bowl more then enough times with teams that had only better then average players (49ers) and not only that but he wasn't very well liked there at all and he still excelled.

TO isn't like any other undisciplined player who can be changed by good coaching. I personally don't believe there's a coach out there who could change him from a me-first player to a team player.

Not even Coach Gibbs, Gibbs would kill him before he managed to change him :silly:
