Kurt Cousins, another victim of being hit with dreaded franchise tag. If you're a player this is the last thing you want, especially when you spent the year prior with the franchise tag, like Kurt Cousins did. He must be furious right now, he spent all season showcasing his ability, and the Redskins still aren't sold on him. He has proven he can run this offense to near perfection, putting up all sort of franchise record breaking numbers. Then, the Redskins have the audacity to hit him with another franchise tag, essentially saying, prove you can take us to the playoffs and perform at high level once you get there and then we'll talk about long-term deals. While Cousins should have to do all these things, he can't do it by himself, and if the Redskins defense could've stopped a nose bleed they would've been able to make the playoffs for a second straight year.
The Redskins still could reach a long-term deal with Cousins before July 15th, but that doesn't seem to be in the cards for the Redskins front office. They either want to keep him with just the franchise tag, a one year-$25 million deal, or they'll give him the long term deal and trade him with the trade being in place before hand, obviously. Either way the Redskins come out the winner as long as they don't get burnt on a trade. What they absolutely couldn't have done is let Cousins walk away and leave the Redskins with nothing. The only person that got screwed here is Cousins. I agree it does suck that he has no certainty for the future, as a player in the ruthless business of the NFL you have to prove your worth each and every year, and every player should know that. It may not be fair, but neither is life, and business is far from fair, so get with it or get lost. However, Cousins could end up making a shit ton of money out of these franchise tags just because the going rate for a quarterback is so high.. It doesn't matter though, Cousins could get injured at any time and he'd have no financial stability. Hard to understand the situation when the player has already made so much money from a fans perspective, although it could also just be viewed as it's the principle. You prove yourself for 2 years and they still don't trust you, it's just a very unhealthy relationship. My guess is it will all end very tragically for both sides like every other unhealthy relationship.
Kansas City Chiefs made a bold decision today cutting Jamaal Charles, a former top 5 running back in the league. Charles productivity has been derailed by injuries the last 2 seasons. As anyone that watches football consistently, injuries are apart of the violent game that is football. Once a team gets a whiff of a player being injury prone they just throw them away, and replace them with a new, younger, healthier talent. Unfortunately, for those former stars that's just the business of the game. However, the decision to do so is usually the right one because not many players comeback from major injury problems and maintain the same level of play. In some cases the player won't miss a beat and the team will regret the move, although the Chiefs won't run into that state of regret due to their current situation.
Jamaal Charles wasn't a huge cap hit, so releasing him wasn't a decision based purely on financials. His injury problems are definitley a cause for concern, but when you have a player that is as talented as Charles when healthy, it's hard to just give that up for nothing. Also, Charles had one year left on his deal so what's the big deal if he gets hurt or doesn't perform at a high level, he's gone at the end of the season, and if he plays great like we know he can he could bring that offense to a whole new level. Now, the Chiefs do have Spencer Ware, who they like, he's young and proved he can carry the workload, so they may just be ready to move onto him to let him flourish. I believe that's the reason they decided to move on save money and stress, and his replacement has already taken over the lead back position.
Anyways, Jamaal Charles should attract a lot of attention during the free agency period. Teams are going to be more than willing to take a chance on a former stud, who has proved when healthy he's one of the best in the game. Giants, Eagles, Vikings, and Ravens are all teams that come to mind, when I think of possible destinations for Charles. I'm sure there's is a bunch more, but I think he'd be a great fit with any of those teams, and he'd come with a much cheaper price tag than Adrian Peterson.
The one concern I had for the Giants coming into this offseason was losing JPP. Now that the little scare is over with I'll be okay with whatever happens from here on out. JPP is a unique defensive end, a very balanced defensive end, he's more than just a pass rusher. He defends against the run extremely well and when he can't get to the quarterback he'll just wait back, time the throw, and knock it down, so essentially he's a nightmare for opposing quarterbacks. Having him on the field healthy was a total difference maker for the Giants this season. Him and Olivier Vernon together were becoming a force to be reckon with, and then JPP went down with another injury. I firmly believe if JPP doesn't get injured the Giants beat the Packers in that wildcard game, but that's a conversation for a different day.
Today isn't all flowers and skipping through meadows though, this franchise tag comes with a hefty price tag of $17 million. The Giants will have to pay Piere-Paul that amount if they fail to reach a long term agreement before July 15th. This gives them plenty of time to get a deal done, although you'd like to get this crap outta the way before mini camps and all that, to avoid the drama of the situation. Hopefully they can work out a new deal that's fair to both sides that doesn't completely wipe out the Giants cap space for this offseason. We still need to add a lot of pieces to become Super Bowl contenders and JPP handcuffing us with a huge payday could effect that.
Ill start worrying about that when it's time to go down that path. For now, I'll rejoice at the fact we didn't lose our most versatile and vital defensive player. Thank you Giants ffront office for not making a horrible decision letting this savage walk away. What are the Giants without two great pass rushers, not Super Bowl caliber, what are the Giants with two great pass rushers, Super Bowl Champions. Let's hope that formula keeps on working.
Bears will likely let Alshon Jeffrey hit the free agent waters on March 9th, when free agency begins. The Bears have until 4pm Wednesday to make their decision as to whether or not they want to franchise tag him, and with the price for the franchise tag being $17 million, league sources have said it's probably not going to happen. If the Bears were to franchise tag Jeffrey he'd then become the highest paid receiver in the league. Jeffrey isn't quite worth that amount, however I'm sure he'll get real close to that number by a desperate team in need of a playmaker. Jeffrey is a great receiver, he's lit it up for me in fantasy a few times over the years, but to spend that kind of cap room on one wide receiver you better be damn certain he can remain healthy and be a huge factor.
We all know Jeffrey can be a huge x-factor in games, we've seen him do it with mediocre quarterback play in Chicago for years, imagine he gets an elite QB throwing him the ball, he'll have no limits. The question mark that surrounds Alshon Jeffrey is can he stay healthy. The last two seasons Jeffrey has missed a combined 11 games, that's more than a third of his games. As a wide receiver if you're not out there every down let alone every game, you don't deserve that kind of money. 90% of life is just showing up, if you can only show up a third of the time you're useless to a franchise. Jeffrey could really bring some team's offenses to a whole new level, for instance the Colts and Eagles both come to mind when you think of teams that desperately need help at wide receiver. Will they be willing to take the risk and give Alshon Jeffrey the payday he wants knowing damn well that he's injury prone. Sometimes you just have to take that shot, I honestly don't believe Jeffrey is that much of a game changer that I'd be willing to do that, but some team out there believes in him way more than I do, and will have no problem paying the $15+ million that it'll take to sign him.
The Rebuild is underway, if you're a Jets fan it's sad, yet enlightening day as a fan. Yes, your team is about to be really bad, like I mean pathetic. However, your team's front office has finally realized the roster they have right now has no future, or hope for that matter, so let's just scrap it and rebuild. This is something most intelligent Jets fans realized a year or two ago, but hey better late than never right. Jets save close to $9 Million with this cap hit I believe, I don't know the exact number because I'm certainly not a math guy, so I'm just guesstimating, although I do know it was a pretty pennies worth. Jets already shitty offensive line just got a whole lot shittier. In the last two seasons they've lost two of the most consistent offensive lineman in football of the last decade, D'Brickashaw Ferguson to retirement, and Nick Mangold by cutting him. It's for the best, as long as they don't just waste the money on some players that aren't going to help build towards the future. Honestly, the Jets are so far behind in the rebuilding process that they almost just need to fully commit already, before it just fucks up everything.
The Jets can't be half in half out with the decision of rebuilding. You either go full blown rebuild or your front office is filled with a bunch of full blown retards. It may sound harsh, but it's true. Push out all the old, I mean Decker gone, Marshall gone, Revis gone, Forte gone, Pryor gone, Harris even though he still nice gone. While your at it get rid of Richardson and Wilkerson, I don't care how good they are, they treat your organization like it's a joke, probably for good reason, but still if you're trying to change that narrative surrounding your franchise, that's what you have to do. I'm being harsh I know, but when I see a franchise so blatantly being run by infant minded people it gets me angry. Jet fans are loyal fans, and this franchise of theirs just continues to disappoint the shit out of them with the miserable product they put out and expect to win. Even when the Jets were "good", Mark Sanchez was their quarterback, and if the Jets had a competent QB they'd probably would've won one of those AFC championship games. No, they continued to ignore the obvious for years, and that's the type of shit that's inexcusable.
Nick Mangold being cut was a tough yet neccessary decision for the Jets to make. It's the first step in the right direction. If they continue to take the right steps by releasing other veterans, drafting and developing a good young QB, and finding younger defensive personnel, along with an offensive line to protect your young entity, then they'll be going somewhere with real direction. Once the foundation of the team has been laid they can add some flashy skill player to put them over the top. Not going to be a fun or easy process for the fans though, your team is going to be unbearable to watch some Sundays, even though they're already unbearable to watch on Sundays, so actually their will be no difference in the gameplay for the next 3 years. Only difference will be this team will be growing for the future, give about 3 years, and you'll start feeling more confident than ever about the future of your Jets. Until then, I'll continue to ridicule your franchise and watch my Giants prove why we're the real owners of MetLife stadium and the New York fan base.
Let me start off by saying no trade can be made until after March 9th, Jay Cutler would also need to pass a physical since he underwent shoulder surgery this year, but the Bears say he should be able to clear it by then. Now, if you're a Bears fans this news will have you quite excited because Jay Cutler has been a total train wreck recently and your franchise is finally ready to move on. The Bears trading him though, I can't see that happening. No team, I don't care how desperate they are, is going to give up anything above a 6th round pick for this bum. That's right I said it, Jay Cutler is a BUM. So much god given talent and just completely relies on that to perform in the NFL. Unfortunately, that's not how it works buddy, can't just show up on gameday and hope your ridiculous arm strength is going to win you games in the NFL, the prep work is what sets apart the great QB's from the average. Jay Cutler is average at best. Don't get me wrong, certainly some team will take a shot at him, why not if you're a team that needs a QB and don't have many other options, but that doesn't mean they're going to be willing to trade for him. Cutler has no guaranteed money left in his contract, so teams wouldn't have to worry about his pay grade if they were to make a trade. Fact of the matter is Jay Cutler just doesn't carry much value anymore.
If the Bears were to release Jay Cutler then I believe he'd bring in some more interest from teams around the league. Would he want to play for those teams, I doubt it since they probably wouldn't be the most ideal situation for him in terms of chances to win. Cutler has to be realistic, he hasn't been good in years, he hasn't stayed healthy, and he needs to prove himself before he can start making any demands about where he wants to play. Realistically, Cutler should be happy that any team wants him. Cutler may just end up retiring, you never know with a guy like him, if he thinks he's above a situation, he's got enough cash to call it quits and walk away from the game forever. First we'll have to see if they trade him, if they can't find trade partner look for him to get released and sign with another team, or just retire. If he is the starting QB for the Bears next season I will be absolutely shocked, and laugh at how pathetic the Chicago Bears franchise has become.
With the 2017 NFL Off-Season underway, the New York Jets franchise faces many tough decisions on how to approach the upcoming 2017 NFL season. After a disappointing 2016 season in which many thought the Jets would build off their 10-6 record from the year before, it turned out to be a complete failure as the team regressed and showed no direction for the future. Now, the Jets are posed with the decision of either somehow reloading to attempt to make the playoffs with a ton of aging talent on the roster, or just blowing the whole thing up, breaking down the team, and beginning the rebuilding process. The question is which route will they take?
The answer to that question should be simple, it's time to give up on this current team since they've failed to make the playoffs the previous two seasons showing no signs of improvement. If they added a better quick fix quarterback such as Tony Romo or Kurt Cousins, maybe just maybe they'd be somewhat competitive. Is that really the right way to approach the future of this franchise? Anyone with an IQ above 70 should realize that'd be counter intuitive, straight up textbook insanity, and a total Jets move. In light of the recent Darrelle Revis scandal, and the actions of players such as Sheldon Richardson, along with the aging skill position players on offense I believe it's time for the Jets to move on. The rebuild needs to begin this off-season and if it doesn't the Jets franchise will continue to plummet deeper into the pit of irrelevancy.
If the Jets decide to take the rational approach in beginning the rebuilding process here's the moves they'll have to make this off-season. First, they'll have to cut Darrelle Revis, this is an obvious move and easy move in light of his recent arrest in which he's facing multiple felony charges. Regardless of his off the field issues Revis just wasn't the same dominate corner that he's been throughout the entirety of his career. As a matter of fact, he wasn't even a good corner back, he was average at best and even that might be a stretch. Next, the Jets would have to trade Sheldon Richardson for whatever they could possibly get for him whether that is a draft pick or just a young player, they need this cancer off their team and out of their locker room, so getting rid of him is a must. The baggage that comes with Richardson will make it more difficult to deal him, however he's still an outstanding talent so I'm sure someone will take a chance on him. Brandon Marshall, Eric Decker, Matt Forte, and Nick Mangold are all players on the back nine of their careers with hefty contracts that the Jets need to move on from. Yes, it'll certainly be a detriment to their offense, although even with these guys the offense was still trash last year, so take the money you'll get from cutting them and put it towards building a future for this franchise. The Jets after making these moves will have a horrible roster with very little talent, not necessarily a bad thing when they need to tank next season in order to end up with a top 5 pick. With that top 5 pick they'll be able to finally get the franchise QB that they've been searching for what seems like an eternity. Josh Rosen or Sam D'Arnold, could be the guy that finally gives this pathetic franchise the stability it needs at the QB position to succeed in this league. If the Jets can accomplish all of that, if they can commit to failing, they might actually be able to build a great foundation for the future. If not, they'll continue on the carousel of mediocrity for God knows how long.
Thank God. Don't get me wrong I loved Victor Cruz, great receiver that came out of nowhere, the last 3 years have been real rough though. It was great to see Cruz finally back on the field this season after missing nearly 2 full seasons battling serious injuries that many thought he'd never be able to come back from. So, to see Cruz come back and play a full season for the Giants was quite inspirational. With that being said, it's clear as day that Cruz was just a shell of his former self. Cruz played a ton of snaps this year, with the amount of time he spent on the field he should've put up way bigger numbers, and there was even times throughout the year that you forgot he was on team because he'd receive no targets since he could rarely get open. There was a few times throughout the 2016 season that Cruz made big plays that ultimately helped us win those games, but if I'm being honest almost any middle-of-the-road receiver could've done what Cruz did this season for a lot less money. He did take a pay cut, as he should've since no one knew what we were getting out him this year after his extensive lay-off from football, however Tavarres King, a nobody in the eyes of a casual football fan would've been able to produce just as much if not more than Cruz did.
Victor Cruz was a key component of the offense when we won the Super Bowl during the 2011 season, so I thank him for that. At the end of the day the NFL is a business and the Giants made a business decision. It was a good business decision since it cleared up $7.5 Million in cap space that'll be put towards a player, or players, that will contribute a whole lot more than Victor Cruz did this season. I'm certainly going to miss watching the salsa when Victor Cruz scores, even though we didn't see him get to do it all that much this season. Even if Cruz produced a helluva lot more than he did this past season the Giants still would've cut him. At the end of the day he's just not worth the value of the contract he was given so many years ago.
As for Rashad Jennings, I was genuinely concerned the Giants weren't going to cut him because for some reason they loved this guy, but when I saw they also cut him I exhaled a huge sigh of relief. Anyone that watches the Giants religiously became accustomed to watching Rashad Jennings get about 2-3 yards every time he touched the ball, and that was a good carry for him. It was seriously the most frustrating thing to watch. Occasionally he'd be able to salvage his stats with one long run late in the game on a 3rd and 20 draw play, however what he was capable of for the other 99% of his carries just wasn't acceptable for the lead running back on your depth chart. Jennings would constantly hesitate behind the line of scrimmage, essentially trying to do what LeVeon Bell does for the Steelers, except Jennings has about a tenth of the talent that LeVeon Bell does so it'd never work. Jennings, I'd love to say I'm going to miss you, but me literally jumping for joy when I read you got cut tells the true story.
With these two veterans being cut by the Giants they were able to free up a total of $10 Million in cap space. That money will go a whole lot further with whoever they decide to bring in with that extra cash. Some of you might be upset with Cruz being gone since he was a fan favorite, with that being said you'll be a lot happier when the Giants are a better team now because they were able to solidify the offensive line with the money they get from these departures. Victor Cruz helping out the Giants in a big way by being cut, so he's doing more for us by leaving then he would've done by staying. Thank you Victor for the great memories, as for Rashad Jennings, thanks for nothing.
A major headline of the 2017 NFL offseason is going to be where is Tony Romo going to finish the rest of his career. In a league where it is so hard to find a very good quarterback, Tony Romo will be a very hot commodity for any team that is a QB short of a championship run. There's a few teams that could compete for a championship if they were to have a QB of Tony Romo's caliber, so certainly they'll be looking to land him. Ultimately, the Dallas Cowboys, more like Jerry Jones for that matter, will have the final say to where Tony Romo will end up. The Cowboys have a few options on how to handle this situation. They can either keep him on the team as a backup to Dak Prescott, this is the most unlikely scenario since he'd be the most expensive backup QB in NFL history, they can trade him for something in return, or they'll just release him and let Romo be able to decide where his final destination will be. Releasing Romo and allowing him to decide for himself would be the right thing to do if Jerry Jones has as much respect and admiration for Romo as he says he does, although that wouldn't be the smart football decision to make. The Cowboys can get a good return on Tony Romo for sure, and I expect that's what they'll be looking to do.
If the Cowboys can get the right pieces in return this is a no-brainer decision, in order for that to happen the teams looking to get him will probably have to give up a lot, or something of very high-value. Future top 5 pick Myles Garrett suggested that Jerry Jones should trade Romo for the 1st overall pick in this year's NFL draft so they can select him to be the pass-rusher of the future that the Cowboys so desperately need. Would Jerry Jones be savage enough to actually throw Romo to the wolves like that and allow him to join the shit storm that is the Cleveland Browns franchise. That's the only case where I can see Tony Romo ending up on team where he has no shot to compete since the Browns will find a way to screw it all up and still not be competitive whatsoever because lord knows that franchises problems run way deeper than the QB position. Other than the Browns I can see a couple of spots where Romo could land and have a shot to be competitive.
Broncos, Cardinals, Jets, Texans, and the Rams are all places I could see Romo potentially landing if the right deal were to be presented to the Cowboys. The Broncos are the landing spot in which I could see Romo having the most success, they have a championship caliber defense, and they have plenty of offensive weapons to surround Romo. The only reason I could see it not happening is if John Elway feels confident in Paxton Lynch's ability to be the future franchise QB of the Broncos, that's a very possible scenario, in which case Romo wouldn't be on their radar.
The Arizona Cardinals could definitley use Romo's ability at the QB position since they have so much amazing talent already on their roster, only thing is they already have a QB in Carson Palmer who is on the back nine of his career. Swapping Palmer out with another quarterback in a similar situation doesn't make much sense for the Cardinals to do, Romo is definitley the better talent, however there's a ton of uncertainty that goes along with acquiring Romo as well. Palmer is considering retirement, although I highly doubt he actually will, if that's the case there's no shot Romo ends up in Arizona.
The Jets are a team that has all the pieces and picks to make this trade viable for the Cowboys, so that's why I really like their chances. If there's one thing the Jets showed this season it's that they have no idea what the future of their quarterback position holds. They proved on a week to week basis after being mathematically eliminated from post-season contention that they weren't confident in either of their young QB's (Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg) by continually sending Fitzpatrick out to play QB knowing damn well he had no future in New York. If I'm a Jets fan I'm sending in letters to the front office for them to make this trade because the skill players on that offense are good, but are aging rapidly, and the defense clearly has the talent to be very solid. I'm sure the Jets will find a way to butcher this so I wouldn't count on it Jet fans.
The Texans somehow won the AFC South despite receiving horrible QB play all season long. If a team that could barely throw the football in the passing league that is the current day NFL, could win their division, and win a playoff game with abysmal quarterback play, then they're just one piece away from being very serious contenders in the AFC. Only thing is the Texans are already paying Brock Osweiler big money to be their quarterback, I don't see how they could dedicate that much money to the QB position, and still be able to put together a competitive roster. If it weren't for Brock Osweiler holding the Texans hostage with his massive undeserving contract this would be the ideal move to made, unfortunately the GM of the Texans made a horrible decision that could end up costing them landing a true franchise QB.
The Los Angeles Rams is the perfect landing spot for Tony Romo. He'll inherit a good young running back that's willing to take a big work load, a scary good defense, and he'll get to move to a premiere destination. With the Chargers moving into town these two new LA franchises will be competing to win over the LA fan base, too bad both the teams are pretty pathetic, and lack any sort of excitement in a LA market that already offers so much entertainment for its residents. Rams would need to find some decent wide receivers and maybe another solid offensive lineman to ensure the offense had enough fire power to support an aging Romo, however that's very doable. People will say what about Jared Goff? What about Jared Goff, he proved in a year where rookies around him had so much success that he's not quite ready to be a franchise QB at this level. There's nothing wrong with bringing in Romo so Goff can learn from an accomplished franchise QB, and it'll give Goff time to develop into the #1 overall pick that they hoped he'd be. Romo will help bridge the gap until Goff is ready to take over, until then they need to stay competitive in order to remain relevant in their new city of LA. Rams need this acquisition more than any team, so expect for them to push hard for Tony Romo. If they don't inquire about Romo whatsoever, Rams fans should be very concerned about the job that their GM is doing.
That's all I got for where Tony Romo can potentially land. Who do you think Tony Romo will be playing for in the 2017 season?
“I think his numbers are very worthy, but again on the other side of it, I think his actions on and off the field, on the sidelines, in the locker room, and the fact he played for so many teams and was such a great player. The question that comes back to me is if he was such a great player, why did so many of those teams get rid of him? And I think we all know the answers. I think he did receive a fair evaluation of his career, both pros and cons. But obviously ripping the Hall of Fame in the process, what good is that going to do. I just don’t understand that. I didn’t understand a lot of things he did in his career.” - Dan Fouts
Let me start off by saying I'm a huge Giants fan, so me sticking up for TO is something I thought I'd never do, however Dan Fouts dumbass comments made me have to. I watched this man kill the Giants for about a 7 year period, during that stretch he played the Giants at least 10 times, and each time he was a matchup nightmare. There's no denying the talent of Terrell Owens on the field, any defensive back that ever had to try to defend him will tell you that, so why are these HOF voters stupid enough to keep him out of the hall of fame.
Dan Fouts, a former NFL quarterback and now NFL HOF voter says that his off the field actions kept T.O. out of the hall for a second straight year. His excuse for not voting him in was if he was such a great player why did he play for so many teams. Well dumbass, TO really only played for 3 teams during the prime of his career, in what world is that so many teams. In the NFL if you aren't a good quarterback or the best defensive player on the team odds are you're going to move around the league quite a bit. Since TO was such an outstanding player and polarizing figure when he was traded or released it was a momentousness event. They say he was a locker room cancer, yet he was on so many winning teams, so was he really effecting the locker room enough that it translated to the field? The numbers don't seem to correlate with that assumption. In 14 full NFL seasons, Terrell Owens was apart of 9 winning seasons. Realistically if he was that much of a detriment to the team he wouldn't of had so much winning success throughout his career. His impact on the field should overshadow any of his off the field bullshit, when he joined the Eagles in 2004 he was a huge reason they went 13-3 in the regular season. Also, when he joined the Cowboys in 2006 he helped lead them to the playoffs two years in a row, and could've been three straight years if Tony Romo didn't shit the bed in the final game of the 2008 season. Clearly Terrell Owens helped teams win, and he helped teams win a lot having a career record of 124-75 before heading to Buffalo and Cincinnati after his prime, which were just paydays for him at that point in his career.
Now, I'm not going to sit here and act like T.O. is some angel, nevertheless the way he's presented in the media as this lockeroom cancer and horrible dude is blown way out of proportion. T.O. never really had any major beefs in his 49ers tenure, he had contract disputes with the front office, what great wide receiver doesn't. Cheap fucks just didn't want to pay him what he was worth. The biggest controversy was after he left the team and implied Jeff Garcia was gay. Yes, not the nicest thing to do, but he was off the team so he wasn't hurting his team at that point. The NFL HOF shouldn't be judging people off morals, or else half the guys from the old days wouldn't be in their, so stop playing he's a bad guy card. In Philadelphia he might've beefed with his QB a little too much which is never good, and he may have acted Diva-esque, that doesn't mean he didn't do great things for that team as well. T.O. played in the Super Bowl with a broken leg essentially, not many if any players would've been able to do what T.O. did, and he also put up ridiculous numbers in that game, almost leading the Eagles to their first Super Bowl championship. Did T.O. let Philly not acknowledging his personal achievements go a little too far, yes. We all know these wide receivers are a little in love with themselves it comes with the position. He ultimately got bounced from the Eagles for taking shots at Donovan McNabb, which he eventually did apologize for, and the Eagles offense was never the same without him, proving just how valuable he was to that team. He went onto play in Dallas following the shit storm in Philly, he had outstanding success, and if it weren't for Tony Romo botching a field goal snap and the Giants magical playoff run he would've had great playoff success in Dallas. Did he complain about his targets more than he should've? Probably, since when is it a bad thing for your star receiver to be hungry for the ball, that's just something you gotta live with. He also stood up for Tony Romo after the 2007 playoff lose to the Giants, he got a little too emotional and cried like a bitch, although that seems like a lot of passion, and a good teammate to me.
What Dan Fouts said proves to me that some of the guys that are voting shouldn't be voting, and that'll be made clear next year. Randy Moss will be on the ballot next year and there's no doubt that he will be voted into the HOF as a first ballot hall of famer, as he should be. If Dan Fouts truly believes what he said to be true though, Randy Moss doesn't deserve to get in either. The stats are are scary identical, and some might argue Randy Moss had bigger off the field issues than TO. Moss has been arrested on multiple occasions, Moss walked off the field during a game in Minnesota quitting on his team essentially, and his stint in Oakland was a complete joke where he really just never seemed to give a shit about the team's success. To say that's not just as bad or worse than what TO did is just a flat lie, so please prove to the world that all you NFL HOF voters are hypocrites, because when you vote in Randy Moss and not Terrell Owens you will be doing just that. Yes, a die hard Giants fan just defended the shit out of T.O., that's almost sacrilegious, but I saw this man do horrible things to my Giants year in and year out, so to see him not get the respect I learned to have for him is just downright unbelievable.
Terrell Owens is also one of the greatest touchdown dance performers of all-time. That's gotta count for something right. To help forget about this travesty here's a video of T.O. burning defensive backs and some of his most legendary touchdown dances ever.
