Terrell Owens!!! I know, one of the biggest stars in the league came to upstate New York. He has to get Buffalo into the playoffs, right? Well, answer me these questions three:
1) What has happened in every place Owens has played? Owens loves to be the centerpiece of the offense. When he is not, or he deems he is not, Owens complains constantly.
Just ask Jeff Garcia, Donovan McNabb or Tony Romo what they think of Owens. And Trent Edward doesn't have near the pedigree of those three QB's.
2) What will happen if Lee Evans gets more catches? I do agree Buffalo needed a receiver to take pressure off Lee Evans.
However, I believe James Hardy has the potential to be a great red zone option, and you just insured those touches will be taken away. Plus, Owens' knack for dropped passes takes opportunities away from the Buffalo offense to move the chains.
3) What happens now to Marshawn Lynch and the running game? Head coach Dick Jauron has always been a run first coach. He has good reason with Lynch and Fred Jackson making a nice one-two punch.
Owens wants to be in a pass happy offense that will get him plenty of touches. Buffalo is not built that way.
In addition to all these issues, New England, Miami and the Jets all play in the AFC East, and since I could easily see 0-6 in those games, I am wondering where their wins will come from.
