What happend to the "Tough Guy", "Trash Talking" T.O. ? He was crying like a schoolgirl.

I like how he talked trash before the game telling everyone to get their popcorn ready. Well, now T.O. can get his popcorn ready and watch the rest of the playoffs and superbowl on TV.

You never know how to take T.O. all he's doing most / all the time, is making sure his name is in the media and gain furthur attention for him self. The Cowpunks didn't make it,so sad. Green Bay would have handed them there arse anyways.

Now if Jesica was in the end-zone, ole Romo would have got that ball there...if not 2.......bwhahahahahahahaahahahahahahaha

Were those tears for his QB or was his under armour body suit riding up a little too tight:confused: ;)

He lost his credability when he said " I have always got along with my QB. I have always had their back"

I think Garcia and McNabb may disagree:rolleyes:

Did anybody get a count of how many times he said "I" in that interveiw? It was alot.

T.O. is putting the "I" back in "Team".

Man, you guys are brutal!! I'm not sure about GB beating us if we got past NY, although they have my vote from here on out. They (Cboys)came out strong in the 1st half. Marion Barber was on FIRE!! Penalties and dropped balls got us. Looked like our offensive line was 4th string in the second half. No one person to blame IMHO. Just wasn't their day. Let the lynching continue.....

TO is too much drama. I'm pulling for Green Bay because they are my 2nd favorite team but to say the would have handed the Cowboys ars is much. Love Farve but he is what, 0-9 at Texas Stadium! Watch/play a lot of football Yellow?

T.O. is a mega-stud with wide receiver syndrome. Simple as that. I'll take him over anyone that fights dogs, beats women, kills while driving drunk or traffics drugs. If you know his background, he could have turned out a lot worse. Just my :twocents:

Great playoffs so far in general. From the standpoint of someone who isn't pulling for anyone in particular, there has been a lot of great football.

He is not even the best after the catch reciever. For the past 2 years Donald Driver has led the league in that category:) But since he does not do touchdown dances or try to make himself bigger than the game no one notices.

I'm with Tex, TO is not even in the top ten receivers let alone all players. TO drops more passes in one season than Jerry Rice dropped in 10 years (exclude his rookie year and his last 5 after he tore his knee up). Why do you think the 49ers wouldn't throw to him in the red zone? Because he's afraid to reach out for the ball in traffic. And as for Run After Catch, instead of lowering his head and pushing upfield, TO dances out of bounds so fast he should be on dancing with the stars. He certainly is a physical stud, too bad he doesn't have a brain to go with the body.

Thankfully simply racking up YAC does not make you the best after-the-catch wideout.

I have some respect for Driver, especially his toughness. I think most perceptive or knowledgable fans do. As for no one "noticing" him...I would say that has more to do with his lack of dominance than a lack of dancing. Being consistently pretty good can only get you so far. Not once has he had a single season with 1300+ yards or 10+ touchdowns. This is particularly disappointing for someone who has played his career in a relatively pass-happy offense.

That's terrible. Best of luck to Gibbs and his family. I was admittedly really down on him during his comeback until this year. He is such a class guy and as much as he irritated me with the Arrington and Archuleta situations, he impressed the heck out me with the Taylor tragedy. My hat goes off to Gibbs and the entire Redskins roster for not packing it in after losing not only a friend, but arguably their greatest player.

If racking up yards after the catch is not a good measure of being good at getting yards after catching the ball....what is? Expecially when most of his catches are short slants with defenders drapped on him. For someone 3 inches shorter and 35 lbs lighter, DD is much tougher to tackle than TO.

I did not say that Driver is the best WR in the league, but he has lead the "pass happy" Packers for the past 4 years and this is the first year that he is not in the top 10 of the NFL, during that time....yet many do not know him because he is not making head lines. And in addition to being a consistant reciever, he is always making blocks and does not take plays off.

I will say that given a choice between TO and DD...I would take DD:twocents:

Not trying to do battle here, but you basically answered your own question. Receivers with an inability to catch the ball down the field generally yield higher YAC averages. For instance, RBs always lead WRs in YAC because they are catching screens, swing passes, etc. This is why you have to look at YAC relative to average yards per catch. DD averaged 12.8 yards per catch this year, a testimonial to his inability to catch the ball down the field. In fact, Driver's first season as a starter ('02) was the only year that he averaged more than 14.4 yards per catch. TO has bettered that in 3 out of his last 4 years and averages 14.8 for his career. Even if want to suggest that the YAC average alone determines who is the better player after the catch, Terrell has Driver stomped out. For their careers, Driver averages 4.4; Terrell 5.5. TO has 6 seasons averaging 6 or more yards after the catch. Donald Driver has never done that.

But hey, I am just a boat owner.:D

That's because TO can only catch the ball in the open field. Put him in traffic, across the middle or the red zone and he gets what the San Francisco announcers call "alligator arms"

I guess my original point is lost on you. I did not mean to say that Driver is the best at yards after the catch. I was just giving him as an example of someone that has had more YAC than TO in the last 2 years to say that I do not think TO is the best in the NFL in that stat. For as physical of a specimen he is, I do not think TO is the best runner after the catch or the best at catching the ball in traffic.

I am not a T.O. hater at all, and I remember his days with San Fransisco. Most of the greats do it on the field with actions and he does so much self promotion and destructive (verbal) things for the teams he plays for it takes away from his greatness. I'm just sayin. What other H.O.F. inductees were that mouthy, I can't remember that many, because the people who vote remember.

Maybe an older gentlemen might know of another TO, but I don't. Irvin and LT (I'm sure there are others) had multiple run-ins with the law, but the TO situation is somewhat unique. His behavior had direct impact on his team. He was an extremely destructive teammate. You can make a strong case that he has done more harm to his teams than good over the years.

That being said, he is a lock for the hall. If he had a borderline career then his personal crap could keep him out, but he is going to be near or at the top in almost every receiving category if he gets even a couple more healthy years.

I will say that if it were baseball, he would have a more difficult time. Thankfully, football inducts the greatest players, not just great players who sportswriters deem to be good enough citizens.

I agree also. There are a few players that, like Walter Payton or Barry Sanders did, just hand the ball to the ref and go back to the sidelines while getting butt pats from team mates. But they are very rare these days.

The lack of ego makes college sports great. In my opinion, March madness is the best couple weeks of sports there is.:cool:
