Terrell Owens looks great

I'm not moving him up because of one play. But I think this illustrates that having a qb that doesn't underthrow him will allow TO to dominate.

My thoughts exactly. He said in an interview (they mentioned it at the beginning of the game) that the play that sold him on McNabb was a toss to Pinkston down the middle that went 65-70 yds in the air. You don't really see Garcia doing a lot of that. I had TO as my third receiver and drafted him as the 4th receiver (after Holt) and have no ill feelings about it...especially with the Ma'ams O-line injuries.

You have seen the numerous times McNabb has thrown grounds to receivers right?
So they weren't the best...and may have ended the worst. SO WHAT!

Owens played the whole first half and didn't make a single catch after that bomb.

Are you sure about making him #2?

He didn't run many routes over the middle with Ray Lewis wanting to take a bite out of his ass either. I think that was a little bit of Andy Reid, especially already seeing Kearse and Buckhalter go down, not taking a chance with his new toy. Still solid #3 IMO.

I noticed that he didn't run into the middle too, hawkfan, but I don't think Reid had anything to do with it. On McNabb's INT T.O.started to cut over the middle then appeared to chicken out and turn outside causing the INT. I wonder if T.O. is turning into a Deion type of WR, avoid contact at all costs.

That has got to be the dumbest statement on this site. TO lives for contact. He is the most physical receiver in the game. I don't know what you were watching but he didn't shy away it was just a miss read. Sure, Ray Lewis is a physical presence but owens is exactly his counterpart on the offensive side of the football.

I always thought he liked contact too. If you have a chance to see the INT McNabb threw the ball where the play was called because TO turned his route in. Then he broke off his route and went outside, and conicidentally, away from traffic.
If that was the dumbest thing you have read, stick around I'm bound to post something else you disagree with.

people see what they want to see on plays. I live less than 20 min from the stadium in the heart of eagle country and I'll be the first to say that TO avoided the middle. McNabb is a good QB but he short hops alot of passes and if you don't see that than you don't watch the eagles. I'm personally not interested with what happened today I'm more interested in what happens after he has a regular season game where McNabb is throwing passes in the dirt. That situation can get real ugly real fast. That being said I think he is a solid #4 not quite equal to Holt in my mind but if he has a good 3rd game he'll probably move into my #3 slot.

Wow. Owens got over on the Ravens' 3rd string cornerback. Something tells me that if Chris McAlister would have been covering him, he might not have been that wide open.

It's friggin pre-season people, come on.
