So can I just say for the record:
It’s about time Andy Reid grew a pair and stood up to Terrell Owens. T.O. is an idiot. A rich, spoiled, childish idiot. It was widely known BEFORE the Eagles picked him up for the 2004 season. Apparently they thought it would be worth it to hire an ass, because he’s a good player.
I’m pretty sure I covered this kind of story once before. In fact, here’s the link. I was talking about Randy Moss, who is the Raider’s equivilent to T.O. Last year, he was the ass of the league, and the Vikings could barely hold their team together. This year, the Raiders get to figure out how to control him, and he’s still an ass. The only upside is that Moss is a perfect fit for the ugly, penalty-ridden team. Heck, they have Warren “Idiot Boy” Sapp, too!
T.O. has been eating away at the foundation of the Eagles for the past season and a half. I think that if he has stayed injured, they would have won the Super Bowl. Yup. That’s right. That’s what I think. It’s no disrespect to the Patriots… The Eagles had assembled “the team.” But all of the conflict screwed up the team chemistry.
Donovan McNabb and Andy Reid won’t lay the blame at Owen’s feet, but I certainly don’t mind saying it.
Now, here’s what needs to happen. Andy needs to stick to his guns, keep Owens suspended for the season, and at the end of the season, they need to fire his butt. I have no doubt that some other team will pick him up, and I also have no doubt that that team’s chemistry will erode faster than a California mudslide.
I just hope it’s the Raiders that pick him up.
Now, on a happier note, how many of you saw the Chiefs game Sunday? Did you like that last play?
