What's next with T.O.?

As we await word on Terrell Owens situation, we can only speculate on what happens next. We know he left, but aren't sure whether that was his call or coach Andy Reid's. Whatever it is, neither was happy, and the receiver is no longer in camp.

My guess is that No. 81 won't be back anytime soon.

The Eagles aren't saying anything now. Owens' agent Drew Rosenhaus is scheduled to appear on David Letterman tonight and he is always good for a quote. That should shed some light on the situation.

Now the debate will begin on whether the Eagles are better off with him or without him and what recourse do the Eagles have?

They could fine him, deactivate him, trade him, cut him or satisfy him with a new contract. Cutting him is not going to happen. A new contract does not seem likely. And what good is a fine if he does not want to be Philly. If he is deactivated, the Eagles must pay him and that won't happen, either. Trading seems like the best alternative.

What would you do?

It's a tough almost have to trade him but anytime you trade a superstar, you rarely get back what you are giving up.

He is going to be a problem and now so it the Eagles receiving corps. Now this is a fine mess we've gotten ourselves into!!

I would've traded him and Buckhalter for Eric Moulds and Travis Henry when I had the chance. Now...hell now I'll trade Owens for Moulds straight-up.

Or perhaps it's time to get Koren Robinson's phone number...

Let him run his mouth; so long as he runs down touchdown passes as he did last season. Today is just an example of a proud coach dealing with a tempestuous (at best) superstar. We can go with no T.O. Personally, I'd much rather he stayed.

The more important question to ask, IMO opinion, is what alternatives to TO has management considered. The remaining receivers have a total of 3 NFL games started combined. Losing the #1 and 2 receivers in a west coast offense, which requires more experience than raw skill at WR, is devastating. The longer Management protracts the TO situation, no matter how it shakes out, the worse it looks for us this season...
