Chicago considering releasing Terrell.

Postby aussieboy » Fri May 14, 2004 9:06 am

Apparently he is having trouble catching the ball, and consequently Chicago are thinking about releasing him.

thats a real interesting article you posted. On one topic it had Millen calling out FOX's John Czarnecki who wrote that Joey was falling out of favor - a completely baseless statement. Then, further down on the same page it had another completely baseless statement about Terrell. Too funny.

Maybe Terrell is gonna be cut - but as far as news reporting is concerned - this type of trash should be reserved for the National Enquirer or other rumor rags. If you want to report news - report the source too - otherwise its irresponsible journalism at best - at worst it borders on smearing someone.

If there is a rumor - report who told you the rumor.

Is it just me or is the profession of journalism getting uglier and uglier?

Yeah i agree with you. That article seemed a lot more like tabloid journalism than fact based journalism. I posted it just to show everyone what's being said. But i agree it should probably be taken with a grain of salt until it becomes official.

I thought Smith was supposed to be very high on Terrell?

If its true well its a shame as the guy has a fair amount of talent somewhere inside him. I drafted him in the last round hoping I got me a deep sleeper...

Peter, you're eating Cheerios. :-D

Terrell just hasn't seemed to have turned the corner. If Justin Gage continues to develop nicely its certainly not gonna bode well for him.

Wasn't Terrell the first WR taken in the draft that year? I think we are finally seeing which guys are becoming the real deal from that draft (Santana Moss, Reggie Wayne, Chad Johnson) and which ones haven't quite made it (Terrell, Freddie Mitchell).

Yea, I also heard that Lovie really liked Terrell, I would pick him up off of waivers and take a chance on him if I was an NFL team.

I heard the bears wanted him to be the go to guy in the offseason. Looks like they wont be thinking that anymore...

I though he was crap for awhile now
