Well, T.O.'s day in Philly are probably numbered. He's taking shots at the QB, Head Coach and the Offensive Coordinator. Rush Limbaugh even wants to try and get T.O. and McNabb on his show so he can get them 2 back on track.

If he gets everybody mad enuff at him he could sit the whole season out like Keyshawn Johnson did for a half season with Tampa Bay.

Wow - first exhibition game of the season for the Eagles and I'm glad it's over.

Pittsburgh scored almost every way possible!!! Ist Eagle play, interception - Touchdown, punt return - touchdown, kickoff return - touchdown, running play - touchdown, passing play - touchdown, field goal, extra points, the only thing they missed was a safety and they almost had one of them. They set a NFL record for being the first team to score on a interception, punt and kickoff return in the same game.

Congrats to the Pittsburgh Steelers !!!

Well T.O. reported to camp Wednesday and was as quiet as a church mouse. It looks like he is going to play football now.
The Eagles have everything in place to drop the hammer on him if he starts up again. he got sent home for a week and they did send him the letter documenting that they did not like is behaviour. The Eagles did a good job of covering their behind in the event he ever attempts to file a grievance with the NFL.
Unless he has a tremendous year and the Eagles organization has a short memory he is gone after the season is over.

The signing bonus kicks in if the Eagles keep him. From what I read the Eagles structured his original contract that way. To make it easy to get rid of him after 2 years.

And if what I read in paper is true, T.O. supposedly said the contract he got otriginally was more than he wanted in dollar terms and more than what his agent was going to ask for.

That is the bad thing about football, you have such a short career in the game that if you or your agent make a mistake it could cost you millions.Didn't T.O forget to file the paper work so he could have been a free agent when he was with S.F?

Yeah the guy has made some boo boo's. Him/his agent forget to file the papers in SF for the freea agency thing. Blasting off in the papers about Garcia, McNabb and the other goofy stuff this guy has pulled. He is a great football player and says he will always be T.O. . It's a shame he can't play football like T.O. and be like somebody else. It's a shame I appreciate the way he plays football. Who was it in Pittsburgh that held out, Hines Ward. Now that's a great football person and a great man.

Hines Ward hold made more sense he is on the last year of his contract and wants to stay.

And I think because of the stuff T.O. pulled over the summer his chances of going anywhere are probably slim to none. And the Eagles have just a good a chance to get to the SuperBowl as anybody in the NFC. Why burn a bridge before you cross it?

I think he played in the last 15 minutes or so of the game. he went into the locker room and went down. No official cause listed yet. But 23 years old, 330 lbs. He passed all the NFL exams before he died. His father died at 51 after his second stroke. It was Thomas Herrion from the 49ers.

The NFL keeps pushing for bigger and bigger lineman...shame.
