After two seasons of dwelling in mediocrity, Terrell Owens hits the free agent market and will definitely look for a contender for the Super Bowl.
Remember the last time he was with the Eagles organization? He did make a Super Bowl appearance at SB XXXIX but that was a surprise showing after he fractured his fibula and sprained his ankle early on in the 2004 season.
Owens and Donovan McNabb had spats, and with the Eagles leaning towards their franchise QB, Owens took a seat with a four-game suspension for conduct detrimental to the team and was deactivated the rest of the 2005 season and was released soon after.
Now, with McNabb out of the picture, and a whole new team dynamic than what Owens left back then, he has the ability to put them over the top.
Sure, their wide out corp is stunning with Jeremy Maclin and DeSean Jackson, but imagine adding T.O. to that depth chart. Just picture it Eagles fans, that’s all I ask.
Could Belichick turn another slumping WR into a record breaker?
Of course New England would be added to this list; they are already perennial Super Bowl contenders, but with T.O., they can be much more dangerous.
T.O. is coming off of two disappointing seasons in Buffalo and Cincinnati and is looking to play for a contender.
Funny, we were saying the same thing about Randy Moss two seasons in Oakland before he joined the Pats, and he didn’t do too badly in his first season with them (just the single season TD record for a receiver, no big deal).
Put together the unpredictability of where the ball is going when you have Wes Welker and Deion Branch running routes, and New England could taste Lombardi once again.
Manning, to Owens?
These Colts want to be in the Super Bowl this year. The game is in their home building, so if they are going to make it soon, this is the time to make the final move to do so.
Reggie Wayne, Pierre Garcon and Austin Collie are a great trio as it is, but add another deep threat to it, and factor in that Manning has an incredible arm (that’s no secret, everyone knows it) and the Colts could be playing and hosting “The Big Game.”
Could Schaub be hurling the ball deep to Owens in 2011?
Andre Johnson lining up on the left, T.O. lining up on the right. Two streak routes and a cast of wide outs to work the middle with relentless cross and out routes. Dangerous.
Matt Schaub, with some consistency, can get them that shot, especially after the defensive side was addressed by grabbing J.J. Watt at the draft.
The Bucs are on an upswing and the addition of T.O. could help their cause.
A solid deep threat for them could be beneficial for a team that went 10-6, a seven game improvement on their 2009 season, and finished third in the NFC South.
After the best draft I’ve seen from them in a while (when you steal Da’Quan Bowers at 51st overall after most experts had him pegged for a mid-first round selection) this allows the addition of Owens to catalyze a run to their second Super Bowl.
With T.O. in the picture, could this be the scene next year?
The wide out scenario of Driver, Nelson, Jennings, Owens and Robinson in the field for Super Bowl MVP Aaron Rodgers could spell the first Super Bowl repeat performance since 2003-04.
The Pack is back, and with most of the teams around them improving grabbing T.O. can give Rodgers another option — and when you give Rodgers good options he usually capitalizes.
They came so close to winning the Super Bowl, that a new addition to the offense would be amazing.
They already have Randle El, Ward and Antonio Brown, so another veteran presence looking to start over, could allow the Steelers to get Super Bowl No. 7.
Plus, the bad boy of Steel City, Ben Roethlisberger, could have a wing man if things go awry.
Pro-Bowler Philip Rivers could use a target like Owens to get what he wants, a Super Bowl ring.
The Chargers finished 9-7 last season and are already poised for a post-season berth.
Philip Rivers is at the top of his game, you have two running backs getting the dirty work done on the ground, and a deep threat like T.O. could be a great addition to their squad and perhaps make that Super Bowl run they’ve been wanting to go on.
The Ravens want the Super Bowl.
After that battle with the Steelers that saw the Ravens get eliminated, the Ravens showed that they will fight to the bitter end.
They filled the gaps on defense and the offense is almost at that point.
Flacco is coming to form, McGahee and Rice make a good tandem to keep defenses honest, and with Boldin and Mason, they already have Super Bowl qualities.
Why not add T.O.? He could provide that option that gets the Ravens, not only past the Steelers, but the rest of the NFL.
With two straight AFC Championship appearances, the Jets are always looking to better their AFC East rival New England Patriots.
Adding T.O. would show that they are capable of grabbing the big names, putting them under the bright lights in New York and most importantly, proving that Rex Ryan isn’t just flapping his gums, and that these Jets have a great shot at winning it all.
Remember, Mark Messier guaranteed a victory in 1994 and he ended up lifting a Stanley Cup over his head soon after.
It may have taken three years, but Rex Ryan can do the same this year and with the addition of T.O.,
I, as a Pats fan, could very well believe in what Ryan is preaching, and with T.O.’s history of conduct off the field, who better to back him up with one of the better talking coaches in the league.
Where do you see T.O. going in 2011?
