A devastaing blow to the Philidelphia Eagles and their hopes at a championship. Terrell Owens was injured in a game against the Dallas Cowboys, limped off the field, and then was helped into the locker room. Initial reports left more questions than answers. In the end, Owens will undergo surgury for torn ligaments on Wednesday. Making the NFC Championship game his earliest possible return. In an already weak NFC, the one true powerhouse just had a wheel fall off. On top of this, the Eagles have struggled the last few weeks, and things are not looking any brighter.
 

Associated Press
PHILADELPHIA - Eagles star receiver Terrell Owens will miss the rest of the regular season and possibly the playoffs and Super Bowl with torn ligaments in his right ankle.

Owens will have surgery Wednesday and stands only an outside shot at being able to play in the NFL's championship game on Feb. 6 - if Philadelphia makes it that far - head trainer Rick Burkholder said.

Owens, who has 77 catches for 1,120 yards and a team-record 14 touchdowns, also has a fracture a few inches below his knee. But Burkholder still didn't rule out the chance that Owens would be able to run in five weeks - the weekend of the NFC title game.


Comments:
This will seriously change the NFC playoff picture.

Massive blow for the Eagles.

T.O was having a massive season and they don't have much else in the way of WR's.

The Eagles needed an excuse in the event they do not go all the way. As correctly pointed out, they should have been in any one of the past 3 Super Bowls. Now they have their excuse. Ming proclaims that this team has some sort of geentic defect that raises its ugly head when adversity strikes. It has struck.

BTW, does this mean that Andy Reid doesn't get to wear those tights?

If there is a God, there will be no tight wearing by Andy Reid.

Maybe this was a message from him?

Yes, there is an Almighty One - you puny Earthlings refer to him as God or a god - but it is I, the Merciless One! All Hail!!!
