ESPN is all a-buzz with talk about the Cowboys cutting T.O.
All I can say is, I guess it shows you what you have to do for the Cowboys to cut you. You can be a drug addict, have run-ins with the law and be a pretty disreputable thug, but if you help the team win games and get far into the playoffs, they'll put up with you. (Exhibit A: Michael Irvin). It's only when the team doesn't make the playoffs and collapses down the stretch that you're cut. (Exhibit A: Adam Jones, T.O.)
I have to admit, there's a part of me that takes secret glee in hearing that T.O. has been cut.
And then, there comes the overwhelming feeling of dread that one of my two beloved teams might decide to take a chance on the controversial wide-reciever.
The good news for the Redskins is that by signing Albert Haynesworth, the team probably doesn't have the room under the salary cap to get T.O. Thank goodness, because this is exactly the type of bone-headed move Dan Snyder would do if he could. And if we get an inkling he's thinking about it, I implore Joe Gibbs to come out of retirement and smack some sense into Snyder.
And on the radio, they were discussing if T.O. should become a Titan. An on-line poll indicated it was 60% against, 40% for having him on the Titans. To that 40% I ask--are you insane?!? Do we really want to have that cancer on our team?!? We got burned as it is by Adam Jones. Do we need more of that?!?
That said, I don't see the Titans making this move. It makes little sense and apart from Adam Jones, the team has shown good sense in bringing in players who aren't going to be cancers in the locker-room.
