It's Official: T.O. Sucks    

He's an unbelievable football player.  What he did in the Super Bowl is right up there with Schilling in the World Series, except without bringing his city a championship.  Now... would it have been too difficult for him to suck in his pride and play for the defending NFC champions one more year?  SportsCenter just ran footage of him demanding a trade... to Atlanta.  The balls on this guy are unreal.  His behavior is almost enough to make me feel just a teeeeeeeeny tiiiiiiiiiiiiiny bit of empathy for the sports fans of Philadelphia.  Wait... I think I feel the empathy coming... right there, it's moving... nope, false alarm, it was just gas.

The Eagles should pull a Keyshawn on him.  I mean, it's not like they have any obligation to trade him, which is what TO seems to think.  Think about it... he's the league's top offensive player, he has size, he plays tough, and he's big-game clutch.  How, precisely, in God's name would the Eagles benefit from trading him to someone else?  With a gun to their heads, they'll get 75 cents on the dollar, tops.  But as long as he remains Eagle property, the Eagles have the upper hand on the rest of the NFL.  I see no good reason to trade him, and I see plenty of good reasons to teach him how legally binding contracts work.
