TO is already in Dallas and yes, I think he will cause the same trouble as always. In San Francisco, he was always the showman (remember his posing
on the midfield star?) and for a few years he got along OK (with a little friction between him and Jerry Rice), but then he started taking pot shots
at Jeff Garcia--a Pro Bowl quarterback, no less--and in two years SF had fallen from a very good team to a miserable one. He was just poison to the
I am an Eagles fan, and I'll admit I was excited to have TO in Philly in 2004, even considering his history. That season he was excellent on and off
the field. He also showed resolve by coming back from that leg injury in time for the Super Bowl. But, alas, then came 2005. He bitched about his
pay, then couldn't stop talking about Donovan McNabb. No one from the team had the guts to tell him to shut up. The coaches didn't bench him as they
should. It took far to long before they deactivated him. His theatrics, coupled with McNabb's injury, caused a disastrous finish for Philly.
In Dallas, I see Owens following the same M.O. He will be nice for a year or two, but eventually he will start complaining that he isn't getting the
recognition he deserves and start openly criticizing Drew Bledsoe. The only difference I see is that Bill Parcells won't take that crap the way Andy
Reid did. He'll bench Owens if he tries that stuff again.
