I am not a TO fan or hater but he was on the show for about 45 minutes and was pretty cool. Total access just summarized his appearance on the morning show being that "politics" rather than his age being the reason which was such a small portion of his appearance and he was lead into that answer by the host asking the question. It seems unfair given how much stuff he talked about.
Believe I heard most of that part on NFL AM where TO talked about his time with the Hawks and going up against Sherman, Browner, etc.
Nichole Zaloumis pretty much baited TO on a question of whether right now, he could take Sherman one-on-one. TO quickly replied, Yes, which obviously got big reaction from the crew and set. I was kind of surprised to hear that too, I must say.
But, also right after that, TO went into further detail talking about his time in Seattle, how impressed he was with the defense and esp Sherman and Browner are pretty much the most talented combo in the league. He was very complimentary after his first statement that Seattle's DBs are top notch.
I think what he was trying to do was to tell the League that yes, he can still play. But his overall message was also huge respect for Seattle and esp the defense.
