Grizz is lighting up his blog with news about the Cowboys signing the grand turd himself: Terrell Owens. I especially love Grizz's pics showing Owens celebrate on the Cowboys Star several years ago. We should have known then this idiot needed prescription meds. I don't plan to write much about Owens, mainly because I don't care for him. When he pulls another stunt that kills his team, I'll write about him again. Owens is the kind of guy that even if he played for the Colts, I'd have a hard time rooting for him. In fact, I'd have trouble rooting for the Colts in general if Owens played for them. Grizz has a different p.o.v. regarding Owens and his Boys:
Match made in heaven... or hell, depending upon how you view Owens and Jones.
One interesting note out of all this is the silence from head coach Bill Parcells. Mike Florio at ProFootballTalk also took note of this:
As one league source who watched the video of the press conference told us, "If Parcells was onboard he either would have been there or at least had a prepared statement.
I personally don't think Parcells wanted this yutz. Owens has, and always will be, a talented turd. Talent can only get you so far. Most media said Ryan Leaf had the most natural talent of any QB coming out of the draft in 1998. Leaf is now the QB coach at West Texas A&M. At the ripe old age of 29, he is out of the NFL. So much for "talent."
Put Owens in the same category. He might not have the same tendancy to meltdown on the field like Leaf did, nor is he as lazy as Leaf. Owens's meltdowns will happen off the field and in the lockerroom. The meltdown will happen when the team loses a game and he only gets 2 catches. The meltdown will happen when they lose a game and he gets 10 catches for 115 yards and a TD, and then claims "Hey, I did my job."
That's an Owens meltdown. I can think of no other team that deserves him more than the Cowboys. For the record, I think the Cowboys will be much better next year. Owens will be a factor and improve their passing game. They should make the playoffs. But sooner or later, Owens will pull a stunt that will divide the lockerroom, and the great Bill Parcells will have to deal with this nitwit once and for all.
Also for the record, Marvin Harrison is leaps and bounds better than Owens. Anyone who says otherwise just simply doesn't know anything about football. How do I know? Because most defensive backs in the NFL say Harrison is better. That's how I know. Only the media, and ESPN, think Owens is the best; the same media that gushed over Ryan Leaf.
