Let's face it. Without Terrell Owens this Cowboys offense has very little to offer. He makes it go. I was dead set against bringing Owens in two years ago. But since he's been here, he's been as close to a model citizen as any of us would have ever imagined (with the exception of that accidental overdose, of course). Jerry Jones is sending a clear message. He's going for it. He wants a Super Bowl and is willing to do anything and everything to get it. What more can a Cowboys fan ask for?
There are two players the Cowboys have to keep healthy to have a realistic chance at the Super Bowl. 1. Tony Romo 2. Terrell Owens. If either of those two guys gets hurt, it's over. Everyone else can be reasonably replaced. I would hate to see Patrick Crayton and Sam Hurd line up as the starting receivers. Let's hope for T.O. to play out those four years he signed up for, so he can earn that $34 mil.
Having said all that, the pressure is now on Wade Phillips. If Romo and Owens do stay healthy, this team better win a playoff game, or we'll be talking about a coaching change in 2009.
