Boy Does It Suck To Be A Pariah …………..
Consider this fact that as of last season the Dallas Cowboys were considered the team to beat upon the start of the regular season . As the season unfolded we saw the team at time show some brilliance. But all too more often than not it was inconsistency and if nothing else a great deal of bickering and backbiting amongst the players and staff.
In the midst of this all had the ring master (owner) Jerry Jones orchestrating the show. What was meant to be a professionally ran NFL franchise suddenly began to look like a PT Barnum circus show. And to great effect the show itself had its own cast of clown characters. From Jones , himself on down to assistant coach and offensive coordinator Jason Garrett , head coach Wade Phillips. And less we forget that the cast of players that ranged from Adam ‘Pacman’ Jones, to Terrell Owens , to Roy Williams , to Patrick Crayton , to Marion Barber III , to Tony Romo the alleged franchise quarterback that’d lead the team to the promised land. There was more chance of that happening had Moses’ body been found exhumed and him being placed in a Cowboys’ uniform. But alas more than a decade later and none the wiser the Dallas Cowboys have yet to win a playoff game.
Well the debacle that was the Cowboys’ season had led to more strife than seen in an episode of a daytime soap opera. With the on and off the field shenanigans that went on. Someone had to be apportioned the blame for what had transpired. The thing being asked was who’d be cast in the role of the villain when it was all said and done. Surely not the glamour quarterback with the hot girlfriend and her acting and singing alleged talent ? Or was it to be the broken down alcoholic cornerback whose run-ins with the law were about as frequent as Lindsay Lohan’s visits to rehab.
It seem that if there was to be someone that would be apportioned the blame as to the team’s failures. Then it’d would have to be the mercurial and often outspoken but yet talented veteran wide receiver known as Terrell Owens. He’s carried so much baggage with him along his professional career enough that would do Louis Vuitton proud were he alive today. I’m surprised that Owens himself isn’t a paid spokesman for the company. But then again we were once reminded that there were twenty five million reasons why Owens wanted to remain a Dallas Cowboys’ player.
Well that day is no longer here as Owens was cut by the team no doubt at the behest of the ring master himself , Jerry Jones. Ought we to be surprised by the decision ? Hell no ! Considering what has transpired in Owens’ previous places of professional domicile. One ought to be surprised that he lasted this long in Dallas. Now the question one could ask is what path his career should now take ? His resumption as a kids’ novelist or to once the again beat the well worn path as a nomadic wanderer in the NFL ? Someone surely has to be interested in the player and the undoubted skills that he brings. But the caveat here has to be buyer beware .
So at this juncture do take a stab at answering the question where will Owens end up or quite possibly in what professional field might he end up in once and for all.
