Perhaps young master merc has gotten onto his father's account and is wreaking havoc?

Just a thought. Because this seems totally out of character for the guy.



Detective moonhead you may DEFINITELY be on to something here. I don't ever remember merc being so....crazy.

im leaning towards this whol topic (in general) being crazy. yea, the Eagles took a chance with him, but then again to not give the guy a second chance and have him fill a need -- and the risk came within three points of working.

That said, it isn't the Eagles "fault" he acted crazy. The decision was unwise perhaps, but they didn't cause the problem.

It seems society today assigns "blame" where fault doesn't lie. It is unwise to leave your car unlocked, but if it get stolen, it doesn't make you the theif. It doesn't mean your decision is GOOD, but it doesn't mean you were to blame either.

At the end of the day, if Owens had addressed this in the proper forum in the off-season (behind closed doors), they would have tried to address it in good faith I believe. His contract was written as such that these first two years were essentially probationary. But being the selfish cynic he is, viewed it as an Eagles out clause.

Furthermore, if AFTER all this, he had kept his mouth shut and played this year, the eagles would have made him a free agent, and let his name be relatively clear -- to his benefit/big payday.

Then, he was given another chance to apologize, which he flunked.

I really don't get all the discussion on it. They guy is getting fired WITH pay. If we should all be so lucky, especially since he got fired "for cause."

In regards to this topic, that is the ultimate in defaulting on a bet. The point of this game relies somewhat on the fact that we aren't privy to all the information -- hence the "luck" element. We don't know gameplans, injury reports, rb by comittee situations -- etc. This falls right under that. You have to asses your own risk, as this had a potential to happen from day one, and you knew it.
The opening scene of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" is loosely based on games of dodgeball Brian Dawkins played in second grade.

I was gonna say, you don't usually find inanity coming out of people who have 3000 posts... usually, they're too A.D.D. to post more than about 20 or 30 times before they burn out.

What ?!

That's unintelligable!

If your point is that T.O. was a good player and that he does not have a bladder control problem, then I'm going to be forced to agree with you.



Now......THAT is FUNNY ! ! !

More and more this seems like prejudice against a the league's best WR in order to hold back the NFL's best WR of all time.....

BTW... who holds the WR records to date?
Is Don Hutson a white guy? Just wondering?


Yes, its prejudice that the Eagles backed McNabb over T.O.. Wait a minute, they are both black....


Merc was joking. haha.

seriously, he was joking, as was the dude who started this thread. They were only kidding. . .

They? So are you saying that Merc is schizophrenic? If so, that would explain a lot.

If "they" are joking in this thread, are "they" joking in the eight other threads "they" started regarding T.O.?
