T.O. Or Not T.O.?

Most of you have heard the rumors about Terrell Owens to the Rams by now, so everyone has had some time to for an opinion on the subject. I would really like to hear what Rams Nation has to say on the subject. My opinion is… Well, I just can’t decide. I have been outspoken on this site that the most glaring need on this team is a number one wide receiver, (not even close to the only need, but the biggest one) and although T.O. has lost a step or two, he would be the most talented receiver on this team.

Physically, he has everything we need at the position: good size, good hands, big-play ability, and he would be a great target for our rookie quarterback. With that being said, I have to wonder if this would be the right move. T.O.’s faults are well-known at this point, and considering how Spags has put a premium on having only high-character guys on this team, I can’t believe the Rams are even considering this. Do we really want “Team Obliterator” to be another thing for Sam Bradford to worry about? If we are going to give Bradford $50 million guaranteed, do we really want to take the chance that T.O. throws him under the bus in his first season? I don’t think anyone actually believes T.O. would make us a playoff team, but is it worth the risk to win 5 games instead of 3? These are all questions that need to be asked before making this decision. It is tempting, but I still can’t decide whether or not I want this to happen.

I am putting up a poll to gauge your opinions on the matter, so go vote and make your voice heard in the comment section. Also, for your viewing pleasure, I have included a picture of T.O. standing with the gorgeous Erin Andrews at the ESPY’s in the post, so enjoy!

    SAY NO TO T.O.!!! We don’t need the distrations like he has been to other teams! He won’t be happy since we are rebuilding, but please Bradford is not worth $50 mil. Bradford is lucky to have been picked #1 due to the Rams poor performance and need for a QB!

    Stiner, if you can’t decide, it better be solely based on the potential entertainment factor for this season. Right now, the only thing I’m looking forward to for these Rams is seeing how close I get for the over/under on weeks for Bradford’s first start and injury. If he actually does contribute with TD’s, he just makes a 2-win team a 3 or 4-win team, and we go down in the draft.

  • Donovan McNabb

    Take it from me, you don’t want this guy. He publicly complained about my quarterbacking skills in a year where I went to the Pro Bowl and Super Bowl. He will have Bradford crying in his Cheerios.

    Oh I’m back baby!! TO is much like myself too old and slow. What can you bring to the RAMS besides kicking off a roster spot for Burton, Foster, etc Now I know he’s 10 times better than anyone we have and he can teach the young guys a thing or two but I just see more headaches than W’s. Lets watch TO whine when he doesn’t get his catch bonus he has in his contract. Why on earth would cincy allow a catch bonus to an ego like this. I dont know who batman or robin will be but that doesn’t sound like a pairing.
