Re: Joe Horn Wants to Retire a Saint.

I like Joe. He was a GREAT WR for us back in the day. I think people forget just how good he was. He managed to make Aaron Brooks look like a good QB for several years.

Unfortunately, I don't see this happening, unless it is some kinda 1 day contract deal. I seem to remember Morten Andersen wanting to do something like this last year, but I think he actually wanted to kick for one game. It never happened.

Horn in his prime would be hard presssed to make this team. He would be hard to keep off too.

I have never liked Joe Horn after what he did to Willie Roaf. I say no way Horn. Good riddance to bad rubbish.

Re: Joe Horn Wants to Retire a Saint.

I'd be ok with that. I hate that he went to the falcons, but I also remember he and a team mate driving to Houston from San Antonio to visit Katrina evacuees.

Re: Joe Horn Wants to Retire a Saint.

When there was very little to be proud of Joe Horn used to make some big plays that helped give us the few wins we had. He was a trash talker but he was also a producer. Let him have a 1 day contract.

I am not, he is old and can't play. He isn't saying he wants to be signed for a day so he can retire, he is saying he wants to play. we have no ned for him

Re: Joe Horn Wants to Retire a Saint.

Joe was a decent WR the best we had at the time...but now he is trying to jump on the bandwagon...I say NO..if he wanted a 1 day contract to retire then fine but you know thats not what he wants...and besides that Joe likes to blow his own horn a bit too much and that wouldnt fit in our current locker room

Yes, Rickey did it... players in recent years who come to mind who have done it include Jerry Rice with the Whiners, Brian Mitchell with the Skins, John Lynch with Tampa...

Re: Joe Horn Wants to Retire a Saint.

I must've missed it, What happened between Horn and Roaf?
