I remember that season very well actually.

But you can't sit here and act like TO got us to the Superbowl, because he didn't.

You can't sit here and act like TO led this team as a real leader would, because he wasn't a leader. He was a show-off, and a great reciever, but Dawkins is a leader. Trotter that season was a leader. McNabb was a leader at that point too. TO was a media circus. Did he do great things during the season? YES. Did he catch 14 touchdown passes that season? YES. But the fact of the matter is that the Eagles won the NFC bid for the Superbowl without him, and lost to a better team when he did come back. Even though it was such a close game, and the Eagles could have won the Superbowl that year, they didn't. And at this point in his career, TO is closer to retirement then worth being brought back. TO has a few good seasons left in him, but he is on the downside of his career now. This Eagles team needs a stud WR opposite Jackson and Curtis, someone who is tall and dominating and YOUNG.

Did you forget what TO did to the Eagles the following year after the Superbowl? How he got in a fight with Donovan and split the locker room? Did you forget the Eagles suspended him until they released him?

Did you forget that????
