again, after all the negative things you said about terrell owens. he is still better than plaxico burress., just as big, stronger, faster, better playmaker. people don't like owens because he is arrogant. he took the blame in philadelphia win mcnabb just couldn't cut it. he took the blame in dallas when he was wide open all the time and tony romo didn't even look at his way. say what you want T.O I will be in the hall of fame, plaxico won't.

disagree! Plaxico is better cause TO is too old and not a team guys. Goes against evrything Raidets are trying to do. Plus he is a three ring circus

T-O + OchoCinco + Plaxico = TROUBLE x 3
We don't need T-O; We don't need Plaxico; We don't need Ocho; and we damn sure don't need Randy Moss again

I'm wit u texas raider. I said we don't need any more WRs, but wut I did say is T.O is better then plaxico & if we were gon pick up a receiver it would've been him. Hate him if u want but do it for real reasons, not cuz of wut the media feeds u. Yea he's anti establishment & arrogant but as a raider those are the reasons I like him. His whole persona feels like a raider. & statistically he's the best of his era. Ya'll go ahead, keep letting the medias shape ya'll opinions butt at 38 the man is still a beast. & still could be a #1 or at least a very good #2. The man ran a 4.40 in the 40 at 38 for seattle & ya'll say he's done. Crazy!

The main reason I don't like T-O is because he's not a team player and football is a team sport. He's only good for a year or two and then whatever team he's on is sick of him. Pretty much, he's just in it for himself

Raiders didn't need any of those receivers, but they should sign Shockey. Brackett and Benson are options also.
