Terrell Owens is one hell of a talent, and one of the most gifted players of any generation in football; however, the man is a meglomanic and has pretty much engaged in a “scorched earth policy” wherever he has played in the NFL. Now it looks like his team — the Dallas Cowboys — may want to exile him due to the team’s performance in 2009 and his run-ins with some key personnel.
From the AP: Concerned about team chemistry more than their talent level, the Dallas Cowboys are considering releasing receiver Terrell Owens, according to a report on Wednesday night.
Widely considered a preseason Super Bowl favorite, the Cowboys failed to even make the playoffs. According to an ESPN report, that has forced Wade Phillips’ coaching staff and owner Jerry Jones to have serious discussions about whether or not to release their controversial star.
“I think we all know that chemistry is the problem with this team more than the schemes or anything else,” an unnamed Cowboys source told ESPN. “Are we going to continue to allow talent to outweigh everything else in the decisions we make with players and putting the roster together? We’re like the Redskins used to be when they signed every player they wanted. There’s more to it than talent. It has to be more about the team.”
Being that I dislike the Cowboys and I’m a Redskins fan, God forbid if Dan Synder goes on one of his his spending binges and tries to sign him.
