Pats Turn To Their Fans For T.O. Signing Input

Friday, March 06, 2009


There are about three teams involved in the Terrell Owens sweepstakes and they are the Titans, the Raiders and most surprisingly, the Patriots. Now newspapers will usually put up polls and forums that ask the fans their opinion on free agents, but it's rare that the team does so on its own website. Until now....

If T.O. wanted to play for the Patriots, should New England sign him?

Andy Hart says, "Yes!"

Assuming T.O. doesn’t have a lot of options, which I think is a safe assumption at this point, I hope he comes crawling to Bill Belichick and the Patriots in a last-ditch effort to resurrect his reputation and championship dreams. Let me be clear, if he has options and expects the Patriots to in any way bid for his services then I have no interest.

Erik Scalavino says, "No!"

Yeah, sure, go ahead. Sign T.O. … if what you want is the utter destruction of locker room chemistry and team unity. If on-field discord is what you want to pay to see at Gillette Stadium this fall, then T.O. is the guy for you!

Humble pie? Not for him, thanks. He prefers popcorn.
Nice use of the popcorn reference there, but I'm with the first guy. Sure Owens will more than likely wreck havoc on the Patriots' locker room, but just imagine the AFC's defenses going up against Moss, Owens and Welker. That's like the Cardinals on steroids! As far as New Englanders go, here are the current poll results....

Once T.O. signs with the Cheaters that means the J-E-T-S and the 'Fins are instant favorites to win the AFC East in 2009.

I still think that the Skins should get in on this. He may be a prick and all, but we haven't had a good WR since Art Monk.

Not sure there's much to debate here. T.O. may need to go the way of most football players and join ESPN.

Holy hell. Tom Brady throwing to TO on his left or Randy Moss on his right... Somebody break his knee again!

Too bad the Eagles never offered any polls like this...

NBD- Don't forget Wes Welker tearing up the slot.

They shouldn't bid for him, but if the offers there, as a Pats fan the idea of Brady throwing to Welker, Moss or Owens deeply intrigues me. Then add Fred Taylor or Kevin Faulk in the backfield, and we'd have a stronger offense then the one taht went 16-0.

but they in no way should be bidding for him.

btw how as a coach do you scheme to defend that WR set? The only team with a strong enough D-line to get to him is the Giants.

And I might actually just kill myself if we went 18-0 and lost to the Giants again.

T.O. signed a 1-year deal with the Bills. That's just sad, pathetic, and hilarious, all in one bag.
