Terrell Owens has been released by the Dallas Cowboys, and it’s all Jason Witten’s fault. Witten is the bastard that got in Tony Romo’s ear and convinced him that T.O. was evil. Romo, in turn, took a once-united locker room and divided it by skin color, white and black, anti-Owens and pro-Owens.
The whites wanted T.O. gone. They were sick of his honesty, sick of his big mouth. The blacks wanted T.O. to stay. They appreciated his candor, appreciated his forward approach with teammates. Ultimately, the whites won out, and T.O. headed off into the Dallas sunset with his release.
I hope Romo and Witten are happy. They just lost out on one of the league’s premier receivers because they squabbled like schoolgirls. Owens isn’t perfect, I get that. But Tony Romo and Jason Witten are far from innocent in all this as well. Good luck to them piecing together their 8-8 season next year.
*Side note: The Seahawks should bring in T.O., then draft Michael Crabtree. Along with Housh, Deion Branch, Nate Burleson, and a retained Bobby Engram, the Hawks can run unprecedented six-wide sets. Yes.
