  • He will get his and the Eagle FO will look like the arogant a-holes that they are.
  • he gave up on his team mates his fans elite speed not elite hands cant go over middle he is elusive and can be used in the screen game so what is he top ten no top 20 yes so both sides have to do the math and get it done the taem that over pays will be the true aholes

I do not want them to make thensame mistake my Phillies made by signing Howard to that ridiculous 125 mil dollar extension he like Jackson's number decline each year
  • Little T.O will end up like big T.O. Playing indoors somewhere ROFLMAO.
  • And how is the Minnesota Vikings not on this list??
