Coaches Wrong About Terrell Owens

There seems to have been some sort of “anonymous” poll done by ESPN where all of the NFL coaches were asked a variety of questions including which Pro bowl player they would NOT have on their team.  For some unknown reason, 14 of them said they wouln’t want WR Terrell Owens.  All I have to say to that is it is absolute proof that there isn’t an intelligence test required to be an NFL head coach.

Come on, he only scored more points last season that some AFC North teams, which is where the results were originally released, on an AFC North blog site.  I understand that he has had a somewhat tumultous past with other teams, but one can’t deny his contributions have greatly outshined any trouble he has caused since coming to Dallas.  I also admit to not being quite happy with the decision to bring him here, but I am quite literally eating my words about it, so what do these coaches know that we don’t?

Matt Moseley on his ESPN’s Hashmarks quite accurately defends this latest “attack” on T.O. as being quite short-sighted.  If Jerry Jones has learned anything from his “chance” with T.O., it’s that it can certainly pay-off, which somewhat explains his other decisions regarding Tank Johnson and Adam Jones.  Albeit different circumstances with each ones past, the risks and gains were essentially the same.  Either the player would grasp his opportunity and turn things around in Dallas, or it would most likely spell the end of their NFL careers. 

It looks to me as if all of these perceived gambles have paid-off as Dallas enters this season as one of the biggest favorites to win the NFC and get to the Super Bowl.
