Just goes to show you, talent will always win out in the NFL. Terrell Owens was unemployed for less than 48 hours before being signed by a team that has apparently been sleeping as soundly as Rip Van Winkle for the last ten years.
That team is the Buffalo Bills. Sigh. Well, scratch the Bills off your list of Super Bowl contenders. Not that they were on it anyway with “Mr. 8-8″ Dick Jauron roaming the sidelines. Truth is, I actually kinda like the boys from Western New York (I grew up near Buffalo).
Now, I get to sit back and watch TO burn down Ralph Wilson Stadium with his flamethrower tongue and blacken the souls of a loyal, blue-collar fanbase with his child-like temper tantrums. A season without TO shattering team chemistry is like a year without Santa Claus. Good luck Buffalo, you will certainly need it.
In other news: The Perez Hilton of football gossip, Mike Florio over at profootballtalk.com, is insinuating the Eagles are interested in Steelers‘ free-agent cornerback Bryant McFadden. I don’t buy it. The Birds already have a well-paid nickel back. His name is Joselio Hanson. Unless they are looking to deal Sheldon Brown. But why would they? He’s a better cover corner than McFadden and with Dawk gone, his leadership will be needed.
