As all of our readers know, I have deep feelings about the Washington Redskins, and therefore I hope I can garner some support from all of you in my effort to convince Daniel Snyder that Terrell Owens is exactly what the ‘Skins need right now.
- For one thing, the Redskins need some pizazz. They are sorely lacking in the pizazz factor with one of the most uninteresting, unmemorable and totally unrecognizable payrolls in the solar system. The Shell station in downtown Kansas City has more nationally recognizable employees than the Redskins. T.O. would cure that problem in an instant.
- That old whatsisname Redskins quarterback (see, I told you) has been developing without a go-to receiver. Even if just for a couple years, that quarterback-guy would really benefit from some time with a top tank wide receiver. Terrell Owens helped Tony Romo become a Pro Bowl quarterback. Imagine what he could do for whatsisname.
- It has been a long time since Washington has had that all-important big presence in the middle of the field, that receiver who can run into the teeth of the defense and come up with the ball and gain the hard yardage. T.O. would give them that. With all of the question marks on this team, a sure handed, big-bodied receiver would be just what the doctor ordered for offensive improvement.
- Money. T.O. sells the merchandise. Dan Snyder surely can build a stronger organization going forward with better jersey sales. The ‘Skins need a star to get them through the current economic slowdown.
