This isn’t the kind of thing you expect to read on a Redskins blog. I’m starting to think Terrell Owens is actually…a good guy. I know, I know. But between his rising to the defense of Tony Romo, the fact that he has been a complete team player in Dallas, and this new tidbit about his “coaching” Andy Roddick I’m starting to think TO might actually be a normal, nice, mature guy.
Why do I bring this up? Well, mostly because I want to see Guy’s head explode. But also as tangential support for my “go get Pac Man and Chad Johnson” agenda. Now, I know Pac Man and Chad Johnson are different people than TO. I know everyone is different and that there are plenty of examples of guys who just sucked the life out of multiple teams and never grew up. But compared to TO’s sit ups in the driveway and what has Chad Johnson really done but say he wanted to be on a team that looked like it gave a darn about winning?
Pac Man is a slightly different situation, I realize, but he is also a lot younger.
Anyway, it looks like Pac Man can be had for a low rounder this year and next year. I still think in the end that Chad is going to go for less than a first rounder because of the market for players forcing themselves off of rosters.
I don’t know about you, but three years ago, I’d have said I’d never see TO behave like an adult. I never thought a good situation was all he needed. I absolutely know that Washington is a great place for a troubled soul to end up. We’ve got a winning tradition, a stable franchise, and a coaching staff that doesn’t put up with crap. We can do this, people. And it saddens me that we’re not even talking about it. If TO can grow up, Chad Johnson and Pac Man Jones can, too.
Dan, are you listening? I know I get a regular hit from Ashburn, VA. Is there some intern at Redskins Park that is supposed to read little blogs like this one just to see what we’re saying about you? Is there just a guy living near the offices who can just go pass a little note to Dan? Whoever you are, pass this along. Please!
