    Re: Sources: Rams in pursuit of Terrell Owens

    I actually followed TO last year with the Bills and I feel he would be a great signing for us at this point. He is still very explosive and will keep most secondaries honest. His character flaws seem to have subsided. Bradford could be in a position to get the Rams back into the playoffs, he just needs protection and something to work with, and this is where TO comes in. With a fledgling Spags defensive system 2 years in the making and some potential on offense, why not the Rams?

    I would like to see the one of the greatest turnarounds in NFL history, and why not? Wasn't Spags the mastermind behind the demise of perfect season of the Patsys?

    This is what I have been waiting to hear, a coach who is willing to take chances to turn this motha around!

    Why Not! Go Rams 2010!

    Please let him choose the Bengals, he is not what a rebuilding team like the Rams need.

    Re: Sources: Rams in pursuit of Terrell Owens

    I am neutral on this. I am afraid that he could really damage this YOUNG team with his attitude... but everybody knows he would be a fantastic target for Bradford.
    If he signs, it has got to be a one year contract (or something that would let us get rid of him after a year if needed) and full of clauses that could somehow let us release him without a penalty (or much of one) if he starts to turn in to a cancer.

    That right there would probably turn him off, but I am not up for signing that big of a risk without some protection.

    If we are truly in "hot pursuit" to acquire T.O., it makes me wonder how confident Devaney and Spags are with our young WRs. Camp hasn't even started yet...

    Re: Sources: Rams in pursuit of Terrell Owens

    I heard this on ESPN radio today.

    Of course I don't like the idea because of TO's past histrionics.

    The only advantage I can see is perhaps the Rams can get on tv a few more times?

    Well, unless TO can make something other than a journeyman back-up out of Feely.....

    Re: Sources: Rams in pursuit of Terrell Owens

    This news makes me want to puke. This guy is not going to mentor anybody. The only thing he cares about his himself. No, no, no....hell no.

    I'm a huge Bengals fan right now and hope they pull the trigger on this clown.

    Bad character, good player. We can only have so many good character guys that suck. We need playmakers

    Ehhh...Bradford isn't the problem. Shurmur will warp him plenty anyway and if Owens somehow psychologically scars him it will give the anti-Bulger crowd something to do now.

    I'm worried more about the negative influence on the wideouts. The last thing we need is for Avery or Gilyard to develop a prima donna attitude. And it's not like a) he did well for Buffalo last year or b) Buffalo's wideouts showed a marked improvement. Also, do note how Buffalo DID NOT want to bring him back.

    If "veteran wideout" has just now risen as an issue for the front office and we are scrambling, though, well.....an unsurprising par for the course. I just wish we'd have the foresight recognize these needs earlier in the offseason.

    Re: Sources: Rams in pursuit of Terrell Owens

    I hope he does sign here and shows you guys something.

    If it is true that spags wants him i don't see how you can say this is a bad choice for the team. Spags and shurmer were there with t.o. so I am almost POSITIVE they have a firmer grip on what kind of person he is more than you guys. You guys are making decisions based on what the media has wanted you to see. But if Spags believes he can come in and contribute I don't see how you guys can argue with him seeing as you don't know t.o. on a level like the coaches of our team do...........

    Re: Sources: Rams in pursuit of Terrell Owens

    At first I said heck no. Then with all the other stuff going on here, like North Korea threating to nuke me, I thought more about it. T.O. is out of the box, ready to play, play maker that will 1) pull the attention off our quarterback. 2) want to win every game. 3) explosive 4) give Bradford a go to guy that can catch the poor thrown balls. Yes I know this guy can be a cancer in the locker room. He is motivated to win. He wants attention. We will win games just by adding him. Guys we have gone 522 out of the last 1035 regular season games that we have played.

    GO RAMS

    That's exactly how I feel about it. Bring him in on a very tight leash, don't overpay for him, and see what happens. The guy wants to win, so I can see suffering through a losing season being an issue for him though. But honestly we can't get any worse, so what is there to lose? I'm sure you could write up his contract in a way that if he gets paid by game or something so that if he acts up and gets cut, we lose nothing.
