And of course Braylon Edwards making the best of his own opportunities and being with the team longer, made T.O. expendable.

TJ Houseamilli is slow...he looked horrible his last year in this league...besides maybe Antonio Bryant, I can't think of a WR out there that has been productive their last few seasons in this league like T.O.

edit- don't get me wrong I think AJ can step in and help out....but would not also be against the idea of bringing in T.O. IF the team was interested in a free agent WR.

Come on now. Edwards got cut during midseason. What does that tell you about TO?

TO has long been washed up. He's bounced around the league and was cut during TC for a reason: he just isn't the player he used to be.


Preseason. VD did the same thing against the Rams in the end zone last season.Now make a gif of Ginn during the regular season letting a perfect pass bounce off his helmet for an interception, or completely losing track of a deep pass against Arizona last season.

T.O. had 983 yards and 9 TDs in 13 games in 2010. If he's even 1/3 the receiver he was then, we should sign him.

Preseason makes it worse. I don't see how it helps your point.

TO is not a roster for a reason. Doesn't anybody see that?
FUUUUUUUUUU Jenkins better be ready to go.

Players are obviously more likely to be rusty during the preseason. Signing T.O. entails risk because of his character flaws, but talent-wise I highly doubt there are 150 receivers better than him. If we'd had him instead of Swain in the playoffs last season, maybe we have #6 right now.
Niners just have to group together and FIGHT. Green Bay won the Super Bowl two seasons ago with many offensive players on IR. I remember back in 1989 when the Niners lost Jeff Fuller-- a really solid safety for the season, I was bummed out. We dominated the playoffs anyways winning 55-10 in the Super Bowl. Champions have more than talent, they have great heart and play hard and smart.

Same reason no one signed Barry Bonds after the Giants didnt renew his contract. Nothing to do with his ability to compete.

I'm with you bruh .Totally wouldn't mind having T.O back !!! We are in denial that he could be of good use. Leave the personal stuff in the pass, he has grown, he has changed and we need someone with that explosiveness right now. I saw a poster show T.O drop that T.D pass. Might as well show Moss drop that easy TD from a couple of weeks ago, not hatin but just sayin. T.O made an amazin grab as well, that was thrown behind him, but u dont show that right. Leave the personal stuff at the door and lets play football baby. That what he did with his last opportunities, dont understand the rejection. We're in a worst receiving core possiotn than last year, Plain and Simple. We dont act quick enough we'll be sorry. Wouldn't mind Chad Johnson either.
Gimmie T.O. or Chad now before any other FA. it would work, it would create confusion and a distraction for our oppnts
At this point we have one wr in crabtree. Ginn can't catch we all know that. Moss has had his good moments, Aj is a question. At this point we need to look at all the options we have in order to find a wr. I have no doubt we will look at both T.O and Chad. We really don't have the option not to. All we need is T.O to run the slant and Moss and crabtree got the rest. Were going to be kicking the tires on ever wr we can find... man i miss josh morgan... Anyways now I think were pretty much taking another wr early in the draft next season. CUT ALEX PAY MIKE WALLACE!

Very sad to see Mario done, hope he recovers well

But it sounds like its a major knee injury that could keep him out next year too

I think bringing T.O back would be a bad idea, but we're staggering right now at WR. A couple of weeks of T.O or Johnson I can live with.

Thats two Giants that have come and gone from last years team. I thought this would happen when we signed them.

It was the most intentionally dangerous tackle I've ever seen. I've never seen a player grab a guy by the knee's and then get hit up high like that. They would have thrown a flag if that was Goldson doing that. They threw a flag on us for probably the most gentle tackle of the night by either side.

The NFL is a joke with the whole player safety thing, they contradict themselves week after week. Whoever makes these rules doesn't seem to understand that picking a player UP off of the ground is safe compared to nailing a player to the ground without giving them the chance to fall down.

Seems like there were bounties on us that night. Complete ref blind eye.

It's tackle football. I'm surprised more players don't get seriously injured. Play at your own peril.
