    TO is now 2nd in the NFL in receptions and 4th in receiving yards.
    Amazing how most fans would say he has been somewhat of a disappointment.

    Have you been disappointed in TO?
    He sure does rack up some stats.

    I've been happy with him. He plays hard. Sadly he dropped some key balls (4th and 2 and then the Redskin TD).

    On pace for the best year by a Cowboy receiver in years.

    Pro bowl type numbers and making a big difference in our passing game. Sadly the drops are just a part of his game. But overall production speaks for itself. TO > Key

    For all his production, I'll live with the drops.

    I keep thinking about what his production would have been like had he caught half the balls he's dropped.

    or if half the balls he caught for big gains were NOT negated by ******** penalties such as holding or if Bledsoe knew what TO being open meant

    Not to burst the bubble, but he won't be 2nd and 4th respectively, after the rest of the games are played this week. :)

    Still a great year for T.O. He's actually been a non-issue since Romo started. I haven't seen any of his flare ups on the sidelines.

    Can't wait for the Giants game, it's going to be HUGE!

    And you have to admit some of Romo's throws to TO were just bad and TO usually gets HAMMERED afterwards. TO probably has mixed feeling right now ... :)

    Ha. That's true. He seems to get TO up in the air a lot and in position to take a big hit. Oh well, that's why TO is paid the big bucks.

    Glad to hear it.
    Glad to see him encouraging his teammates even though he's not the one getting all the glory.
    Glad to see him picking up team mates off the ground.
    Glad to see him just be one of the guys.
    Should help him be a better man (hopefully).

    Owens IS 2nd in receptions - but he is not 4th in yards. He's 8th. He's 4th in the NFC. But everyone except Roy Williams has played one less game.

    I expected a little more... but he is being targeted by opposing defenses... so its ok... this offense is better with him. I still think he is gonna break out. He said it best "we are a high scoring offense"... "we put up west cost numbers and we arent west coast"



    Yeah those dropped passes in NY and Wash can all be made up for as he consistently gets 100 yard games down the stretch....:D

    I'm still waiting for him to catch a TD that actually contributes to our winning the game. (All TDs contribute to winning the game, but some are more critical based on the situation than others.)

    His last TD was a garbage time TD.

    He owes us one from the Washington game. I hope he doesn't think he's made up for that monumental drop.

    Shifting topics, I'm glad TO has become an afterthought with respect to media coverage. And I think that's in large part because of winning and because Romo seems like the kind of guy that listens to what TO has to say.

    I just have a "feeling" that Romo knew of TO's TD celebration and was desperately trying to get TO the ball. He did.

    The one stat that he is #1 at, (or at least tied with) is TD's. Gotta love that.

    His presence is allowing other to get TD's that are important. Do you really think all of the scoring is just other scoring?? He knows, we know, opposing teams know... he is the #1 guy... so they game plan against him.... it will be hard to do as the season winds down... EVERYONE can score.... I see Owens getting freed up and doing more....

    My comment was more toward his drop than his impact on the offense.

    I know he's drawing triple coverage in some cases. But when the ball hits him in the hands, at crucial times, he has to make those catches. And by that standard, he has not redeemed himself from the Skins drop, IMO.
