Every year they say no, and every year he posts huge numbers.

And, every year, the team he was on has a locker room meltdown


No locker room meltdown in Buffalo and the meltdown in Cincy was the other WR, not T.O.. actually, according to the coaching staff he was quite helpful in trying to difuse the #85 situation in the locker room. You guys are sure living in the past when it comes to T.O., may want to get over that.


Correct, there was no meltdown in Buffalo and no meltdown in Cincinnati, but Terrell does speak his mind and he did so in Cincinnati he blamed the owner and the coaches for Cincy's mess. Now, Terrell might be right because Marvin Lewis downplayed the comments and Carson obviously agrees with TO that's why he wants out, but we don't need this kind of distraction. The Skins are still dealing with the two ring circus of McNabb and Albert, do not need TO coming in here and speaking his mind and adding a third ring for the press to jump in. It might be fun hearing him say the owner is to blame, but that is not all he will say. JPJ, TO is TO and he will always speak his mind - in the past, in the present and in the future. Let's pass on TO.

Wait, 2 ring circus? You were at the wrong show my friend.. it was a 3 ring circus.. Mcnugget/FatAlbert/ShanAllen

.. but I agree with you guys overall though, we really don't need T.O. here (especially since we have that all-star stud Malcolm Kelly) .. wait, I'm hurt again.. or sick this time.. crap, I don't feel good :puke:

I used to dog my fellow posters about caring too much about "character issues".. then I read stuff about SimsWalker online and I'm having a change of heart here. With last season's "episodes", I really don't even want ANYONE with questionable character issues. So SimsWalker, no.

Just my opinion but I'm the same guy who thought football was a ball shaped like a foot! :shock:

So, the Jags are dumping a "quality" WR due to character issues?

I'd assume, if he was really good, they'd put up with him. If he's just okay, it isn't worth it...

My question -- why would we, or more specifically, why would Mike Shanahan? We got enough of that now!

For a talented receiver like Sims-Walker to change his diva ways, he has to be on his last leg, bounce around to a couple of teams, like Brandon Lloyd. Even then they don't change. They just subdue their behavior to survive. See Brandon Lloyd interview:

http://broncotalk.net/2010/12/20152/bro ... mer-teams/

Also TO didn't tone it done untill he was under one year contracts, but the key is tone it down.

Another example is Randy Moss, he subdued his ways when he got to a strong no nonsence organization that used him the way he wanted to be used, but in the end when he didn't get his way, the old Randy Moss came out.

Since the Redskins are still building an identity - No Divas WR's!!!
