It's not arbritrary b/c that's the last pick the 9ers have in the second round.

what is a steal is the fact that we niners were able to get something for him :D

Well, I don't know about in the top 51--an arbitrary cutoff--but the Pats have seven picks in the top 4 rounds. Two ones, Two twos, two fours and a three.

Wow, trans, I did not know that. How did those picks come about?

Well the suspense is over before the first kick-off. It's a Ravens/Skins Superbowl :-b
I hate to see it happen for the simple reason that it will reduce the # of looks that TO will get. Last year he caught almost as many passes as all of the Raven WRs put together. And he was unhappy about the gameplan. Do you think the Ravens are going to stop giving the ball to which ever RB is on parole/probation? Bet they're busting a gut in SF, they get a #2 because TO's agent couldn't use a Sarpie in time and send TO where he will get less action. Brilliant!

I am trying to be as humble as possible. But certainly the "parity" in NFC North is over.

Ravens are clear favourites now.

I have a TO in a keeper league, and when I first heard the prospects of him going to Baltimore I wasn't too thrilled because of their worst ranked pass offense. But the more I think about it, TO will basically be their go-to guy, akin to R.Moss in Minnesota.
I don't expect any of those 75 yard TD bombs that Garcia used to deliver to TO, but I do expect lots and lots of short passes, and many many receptions per game. He will see the ball alot, and we know he can run after the catch,so he'll get lots of yardage. As for Baltimore being a run first, Defense first team, remember that Billick used to be the offensive coordinator in Minnesota not too long ago when Minnesota's offensive was the highest scoring in the league.
In fact, didn't Baltimore hire Billick because he was an offensive minded coach?

Yup. I think someone may have already mentioned this, but I'll go ahead and put it down again. He used to be the offensive coordinator for the Minnesota Vikings back when they were the highest scoring team in the league.

I'd predict T.O. to get similar stats to last season - I wouldn't expect him to return to being 1c. behind Marvin Harrison and Randy Moss anytime soon.

Quite true... a second rounder is a steal for the niners, nice job by TO's agent. LMAO

Man, this is going to be hard to see... Owens used to be the man for my Niners, and now he's reduced to a second round draft pick. He must be the biggest headache to a team since frozen yogurt. Owens won't rate very high on my list of fantasy choices due to the QB situation in Baltimore, unless Lewis goes to jail and can't play this year.
