The offseason is the time when any kind of rumor can get started. This one really cracked me up when I read it. Gary Myers writes the following in a NY Daily News article.
Hilarious. First of all, at this point in their respective careers, I don't think Favre would give us any better chance than Bledsoe of winning the SB based on physical talents. I'm always stunned by how the national press refuses to see the decline in Favre's play over the last few years. Secondly, somehow Myers believes that throwing a new starting QB into a system that he's never played in, and pair him up with a mercurial WR who hasn't played in the system will somehow magically come together for a SB run? I think Gary Myers was drunk when he wrote this.
Suffice it to say the author of this article is not on board with the signing of Terrell Owens. In fact, he sounds downright mad about it.
If you enjoyed T.O.'s tantrums after Donovan McNabb failed to see him open downfield, just imagine what will happen as Owens races clear down the sidelines only to look back and see Bledsoe on his back for the fifth time that game.
Although he rants about Owens for a good portion of the article, his real point is that Dallas wasted its time in signing Owens because their real problem is the offensive line. Tell us something we didn't already know. He uses some fancy, new-fangled statistics to show that Bledsoe was at best an average QB last year because the line couldn't protect him. And the signings of Jason Fabini and Kyle Kosier aren't likely to change that all that much.
He may have a point, but the Cowboys weren't ready to pay Keyshawn Johnson the money he wanted, so we had to sign a WR. The Cowboys decided to sign the best WR available and take their chances on the loose cannon. Only time will tell who was right.
As for the draft, he likes S Donte Whitner or OT Winston Justice if he's available. If Justice is available, which he won't be, I'm sure Dallas would wait about two nano-seconds before turning in their selection card.
