Did you not know that he led the league in TD's last year?

And most of this came in the latter part of the year when the ball was actually being thrown to him AND he did it with an injured finger.

It is obvious the man cannot ever please ome people!

What he is ... is a competitor. Sometimes he has said things that he should not have. But the job of every player is to pay to their capacity and deal with whomever they need to .. to make winning a reality. Your idol forgot that. He had a great career, but he forgot that his job was to get the ball to the guy who could win.

You animosity toward T.O. is completely misplaced. He did not do what you accuse him of. He was playing hurt but still led the league in TD's. When Bledose was younger, he'd of done exactly what Romo did. Keep throwing the ball to the guy who makes things happen. But he didn't. And now he's not playing and you are tryting to blame the guy who he snubbed.

Get over it. You do a disservice to Bledsoe by your continuing to keep the story going. You should let him be remembered for what he did right, instead of continuing to defend what he did wrong.

In time, people will only remember the good, unless the bad keeps being put in front of them.
This true of Starr, Namath, and even the great Montana.

You are wrong to blame T.O. for what Bledsoe did not do. You should really remember the good things that Bledsoe accomplished and stop trying to excuse how he went out. He retired. Leave it alone. All players eventually retire. It is not TO's fault that Bledsoe retired. He retired because he forgot what he knew when he was younger. You throw the ball to the guy who makes plays and you keep doing it until you score.

You call leading the league "not producing?"

Every coach who interviewed for the job in Dallas wanted to make certain TO was staying. Why is it that people keep slamming the man? Perhaps not all, but certainly most great athletes have been highly charged. They have to learn to channel that drive but most have, at least, some difficulty always remembering to do that.

He's a great ballplayer who has on occasion allowed his emotions to make him say foolish things. He's not out getting arrested or doing other despicable things, yet some of you treat him worse than those who are.

Really, if you look at the facts and not the emotions,... I think you'd change your opinion.

I'm still not a TO fan but I do respect Bledsoe for retiring--he had a great career and it is sad to see him go---I'll be there when they retire his jersey in Foxboro

If they are retiring his jersey, I haven't heard it. I would be very surprised. To get a jersey retired usually requires a whole lot of GOOD years with the same club.

And Babe Ruth led the league in strikeouts. Your point?

In the first place, the NFL does not keep records of dropped passes. So that little factoid is speculation. But it is also irrelevant, since it would be expected that the guy catching the ball the most when it counts, will drop balls getting it done. If it were anyone but TO, no one would ever even mention it.

T.O is a ball hog just like "kobe" and I'm a "Laker" fan,so u already knows how much that hurt's me to say!

It really amazes me to see a man criticized for doing well what he is paid to do. You can call it being a "ball hog" if you'd like, I suppose. But if he wasn't a "ball hog", then he'd just be a routine receiver.

You could make the same claim about any of the great receivers. When they run a route, they want the ball so they can do what they do.

It's kind of a duh.

The comparison is not logical. When a player is called a "ball hog" in basketball, it means he will not pass the ball even when it's in the best interest of the team for him to do so. I don't know what a "ball hog" is in football. The only thing it could be is a QB who thinks he should run on every play. A receiver cannot be a "ball hog" because he doesn't have the ball. But any receiver who doesn't want the ball, wouldn't be a very good receiver or competitor. This is what makes TO a great receiver. He does not deserve to be slammed for being good at his position.

I would not want a receiver on my team that did not want the ball all the time. Any receiver worth his salt, it seems, would fit your description of being a "ball hog". By the way, it got Michael Irvin in the HOF.

TO would never say this, but those dropped passes were as a result of an injured hand. He could have stopped short his season and had surgery, but chose to play through it. Leading the league in TD catches proves it was a good decision. Despite any problems you may have with TO's personality, you are a fool to knock his productivity! That is absurd.
