Will the Terrell Owens experiment in Buffalo work?

I mean, will it help the Bills finally get into the playoffs and T.O stay happy during the year? I think it will. Trent has soooo many options he can go to. He's got T.O, Lee Evans, James Hardy, Roscoe Parrish, and James Reed. Pretty solid recieving corps Trent has to throw too!

Update:

Well, if he does become poison in the locker room, thats why they only signed him to one year just in case he continues what he has done to three other teams. "Im leaving America's team, to come to North America's team"

    Of course it will work. It is Terrel Owens we are talking about, even though the guy is in the top few for drops in the NFL, he usually tops the league in TD's. All the Bills really need is an offense, their defense is pretty solid and their special teams are nice. Adding T.O. is good move for a young QB, and the smartest thing about it is that it is only for a year. The Bills are utter geniuses, they know not to put down a multi-year contract and get their team and franchise torn apart by his locker room poison, but instead sign him to one year so he can explode the offense and create mismatches for either him or Lee Evans to burn people. He was always happy his first year, it is just after that initial year he would break down, so the Bills get their offensive spark and don't have to deal with long term consequences. Great deal and great management so far.

    T.O. is a fantastic Receiver however when you convince yourself everything is everybody else is at fault and not you then fantastic becomes an average athlete. Why would you think this is going to change Buffalo. Sorry he will have to MAN UP and build up other peoples confidence and not just his own. Keep quiet and let his skills and add some SUPPORT T.O.

    T.O. is one of the best wide outs to play the game. He has never acted up in his first year on any team he has played with. I CHALLENGE ANYONE TO CORRECT ME IF I AM WRONG.

    Buffalo is a team that everyone loves to love or loves to hate.

    Even though I am no fan of Owens, if he helps Buffalo get to the playoffs Football in general will be better.

    Owens will have a good season. I'm going for him in my fantasy pool this year.

    Owens will not be on my fantasy football team if he gets to play in 2010 in Buffalo.

    He will become restless and he will become a problem.

    December 7th this year Owens will become 36. Two years? 37. Retirement - becomes loud broadcaster until Berman gets fed up with him and the networks shame him.

    The only team T.O. might possibly help would be the Cowboys. Getting rid of him may be the best offseason decision they made. He has yet to fail at destroying team chemistry and I doubt the Bills will escape unscathed.

    T.O. experiments never work, San Fransisco tried and failed, Philly tried and failed, Dallas tried and failed, it may just be me, but i'm seeing a pattern here. He's a one man show and when he doesnt get what he wants he ruins football teams. The Bills are lucky they only signed him to a one year deal.

    It will work initially, but then TO will do what he's done to 3 other teams and cause an implosion in the locker room. The Bills will be sorry that they signed him...

    no once Evans gets more catches in a game than him T.O is gonna flip right out out and trash him in the media and on the sidelines and ruin the team

    Unfortunately, TO is a cancer, and cancer spreads. It will start when he begins to second guess the Offensive Coordinator, and starts spewing off, and then starts yelling at the QB because he is always "open!". It's always the same with this guy. It will work for about 6 weeks and then it will all go to hell...in my opinion.

    When has the T.O. Experiment EVER worked.

  • 1 decade ago

    I think he's gonna be quiet both on the field and off it. Meaning his numbers are on the decline but he'll still be the best (number 2) option in football. 10-6 record playoff berth.
