At long last, our city-wide nightmare is over. Adam "Pac-Man" Jones was conditionally traded to the Dallas Cowboys yesterday for a fourth-round draft pick.
That sound you heard was the Titans organization and its fans breathing a huge sigh of relief. OK, sure that sigh of relief is tinged with a little regret. Jones had all the talent in the world on the field and it's a crying shame he couldn't get his life together off the field.
That said, I can't think of a better team for him to go to than the Cowboys. I cannot wait to watch as this guy who is a disruptive locker-room force goes to my least favorite team in the NFL and slowly helps them continue their downward spiral into futility. Combined with Terrell Owens as a cancer in the locker room and the fact that the Cowboys can't win a playoff game to save their lives and you've got all the makings of even more frustration and futility for Dallas.
Remember Cowboys fans--your team hasn't won a playoff game in a dozen years. There are 18 year old kids who don't recall the last time you won in the post-season. I take such delight in that. You can criticize the Redskins or Titans, but at least we've won a post-season game this decade. And it's not going to get better any time soon. In fact, you just got a lot worse.
I love it. Titans win, Cowboys lose.
