If you believe that Terrell Owens is not to blame for the 2008 flame out in Dallas, you are not alone. You’re in fine, fine company. Read this links and enjoy:
ESPN’s Comment Section — Skip Mosley’s Misguided Mess and Check out “Gonzo Cowboy” in the Comments Section.
The Bleacher Report – aside from forgetting that the forgettable Roy Williams is still in Dallas, not bad.
As an aside, Herman Edwards believes Terrell Owens would be a good fit in Tennessee. Interesting.
Personally, I’m starting to lean toward the San Diego Chargers. Philip Rivers can take the weight. He’s fiery enough and has more than enough ego to go with the flow. He’s reviled as a smug, arrogant guy all over the AFC West. He led the league in passing last year but wasn’t elected to the Pro Bowl. He’s never won anything and has a lot to prove. LaDainian Tomlinson and Antonio Gates aren’t getting any younger and they need more help than they’ve been getting from Chris Chambers and Vincent Jackson and Malcolm Floyd. When you’re best option heading into a playoff game in Pittsburgh is a 5’6″ scatback, you need an infusion of raw power.
Philip Rivers is accurate. He takes hits and comes back for more. He can make all the throws (even with his unconventional release) and would certainly welcome another weapon in the league’s top arsenal. And guess what? Rivers (December 8th) and Owens (December 7th) are both Sagittarians! They would GET ALONG GREAT! They might drive everyone crazy, but they would get along great. I guarantee it!!
Rivers might be more of a bad boy than the church-going Owens, but, they could fight like cats and dogs for 3 quarters on the sidelines and still win just about every game in the 4th quarter — and be just like new again the very next day. No grudges, no hurt feelings, no side comments to the media…just straight talk, passion and touchdowns.
The key to success next year would be the slow down and let the leaders lead. Word to daddy, indeed.
