I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve been on a kind of Buffalo Bills kick for awhile. Somehow I just think this team is underachieving. So when the Bills took off on a winning streak last season I strutted around like a star studded prognosticator. Eventually though, I came crashing back to earth as Buffalo reverted to form and finished at 7-9 and out of the playoffs for the ninth straight year.
Now 2009 Buffalo Bills tickets have a new impetus, a focal point for fans and press. It comes in the form of T. O. The star crossed reciver has been praised for his talent, lauded for his feats on the football field, and lambasted for his antics and tendency to stir the pot whenever the chance arises. Booted from the Philadelphia Eagles and tossed away by the Dallas Cowboys, Terrell Owens is at a crossroads. To cement his legend he HAS to do well with the Bills and keep his mouth shut. Whether his ego allows him to do that remains to be seen.
There is no doubt in my mind that Owens will have a huge impact on the offense of the Buffalo Bills. With a solid NFL running back in Marshawn Lynch, a potential star in Trent Edwards, and now the presence of T.O. in the opponents backfield, Buffalo can look forward to keeping defenses honest and opening up opportunities in both the running game and passing game. If it’s a success the T.O. experiment will continue for the next few years. Anything less than a playoff spot and perfect behavior could see Owens packing his bags for the next daring coach with his head on the chopping block,
