Now that 'Tone is gone, there is an obvious need to bolster our WR corps.  Unless of course, you think ARE or Sweed are going to make up for Holmes' departure.

Would you be ok with the Steelers signing TO to a 1 or 2 year deal?  A couple of years ago I would have said hell no, but he didn't make a fuss last year playing for an awful Buffalo team with an awful QB and the guy isn't going to get in trouble off the field.  It might be risky from a PR standpoint, especially considering the PR hits they've taken over the last month plus, but I would be OK with it. 

You can make the argument that he is losing it due to age and his propensity to be an asshole isn't exactly attractive but a 3 WR combo of Ward, TO and Wallace is a helluva lot better than what they are currently slated to be trotting out there this season. 

If they can add a WR in rds 2 or 3 this would be a moot point but what are your thoughts?

I think Sweed is already our go-to drop guy.

Don't fall in love with the driveway crunches.

Think of all the new and innovative ways he could teach Limas to drop the ball though.  Maybe he could give Ben some workout tips while he's here?

I'm probably just getting sucked into the rampant, unneccessary speculation that comes with the NFL Draft.  I'll be over this in a day or two.

I don't think I've tried Woodford Reserve, and I do like bourbonses.

If I say no to T.O., will you send me some?

He wouldn't be my first choice, buuuuuuuuuuuuuuut bringing him in for a financially reasonable (i.e. muthafuggin' cheap) vet deal is something to consider; especially if they don't plan on doing anything else at the position short of adding another mid to late round pick.

You can't expect to lose your #1 WR, fail to replace him with viable alternative and not have your offense suffer considerably because of it.

Either way!  Cause if you say yes, it's further evidence that you need a stiff drink!  wacko
