I've got to tell you it's time for TO to go. A couple of years ago when this crap started with him in Dallas my wife, also a diehard, was outraged by his antics. I told her then that it was no big thing and it will be dealt with and things will move on. Then last year happened with the Mooch/TO struggles and she was clanging the pots again saying it was time to go and I told her that he is/was too great of a talent to dismiss, we need to keep him for the team. This year has been the straw that broke the camels back.
How can you go out and criticize an O line that has its top 7 players hurt with leg injuries when you are out there doing your very best impression of JJ "Alligator Arms" Stokes?
No, it's time to move on. The 49ers need to try and keep Streets, but more importantly Plummer and especially Peterson on defense. That is the only way they can build for the future. I liken it to the Seattle Mariners when they had ARod, Griffey and the Unit and everyone asked how they would make it without those three players. Last time I looked, they have been far more competitive without them than with them and I think the same will apply in SF.
WHAT I DON'T LIKE----->
The York's, IMHO, are awful, pennypinching owners and I don't expect the 49ers to really compete for anything so long as they are there. They had absolutely no intention of paying TO for his services. However, with his baffoonery they are going to look completely justified in dumping him and lead "fans" into thinking that they did the right thing for the right reason when they really are just tightwads.
I like simple pleasures, like butter in my ass, lollipops in my mouth. That's just me.
