    Bledsoe acknowledged after the game that losing TO is a big loss, and that he is a very important part of the team.

    If I remember correctly, TO was upset with Mcnabb's nonchalance regarding Owens' injury during their Super Bowl year.

    Regardless of whether or not missing TO for a while hurts the team, I think Bledsoe just proved again why TO can work here.

    It's early. But all things are positive so far. I think this story could have a good ending.

    For me, the fact Owens continued to play with a broken hand, and as he said, he didn't tell anyone, was big. He also looked quite happy when Glenn scored. I'm still waiting for Mount TO to erupt but so far so good.

    Catch-22, I thought the same thing.

    At first, it sounded like Bledsoe might hedge his bets and tossed the "we'll try our best without him," but went on to say something along the lines of "it'll be tough without him."

    We may never know, but any one wanna bet Bledsoe also had something to say to TO afterward, not only encouraging him about the drops but also commending him for playing hurt? If he hasn't yet, I'm sure he will. If Bledsoe is anything, it's smart enough to massage this relationship IMO.

    TO will be fine, he has his money and respect. Two things he has been searching for, for a long time. As Deion would say, entertain me. TO will be doing that soon enough.

    I second that.... I did not find Mcflabb's comment to be bad when T.O. was injured. Sure, in hindsight, one could see Donovan not saying that again if he knew T.O. would react in that manner but frankly I would rather have him have confidence in the rest of the team to do fine during T.O.'s absence as opposed to thinking and adjusting his commentary to placate T.O....

    Well, considering McNabb is a complete DOPE, it shouldn't be hard for Bledsoe to separate himself from him in the area of smarts.

    Yes, great to see that. It's unfortunate T.O. broke his finger, but luckily we have a bye and the Texans next. So he will no doubt be ready for Philly. :) I don't think he'd miss that one if his hand fell off.

    That "liability" out there did make a couple of catches for 1st downs, and drew doubles almost the ENTIRE night which obviously gave others just a few opportunities to make plays. I realize that alot of people don't like the guy, but his impact on the field can't be underestimated. The guy may be a loud mouth, but he hasn't had off-field problems and is a straight-up gamer. I say he'll miss the Titans game and then back on point.

    It's no more a reach than the media's persistent and constant attempts to create controversy out of thin air.

    Either every little thing matters with TO, or it doesn't. I wish everyone would make up their minds.

    This isn't exactly apples to apples.

    For us, we have 14 games left and hope to make the playoffs. Losing a top player needed to get through the marathon season is different than not having a player for individual playoff games where if you lose once you go home.

    I don't recall that McNAbb said it was no big deal to lose TO, just that the team had no choice but to play without him and he thought they could still be successful with the players they had.

    Nevertheless, this kind of comment is BS - it's merely making exuses for TO. Frankly, no player is worth having to carefully weigh and measure every comment, action etc ..... to determine if it is going to offend his delicate sensibilites.

    So far that hasn't been a problem - let's hope it stays that way.
