During what was probably the most high profile free agent visit this off season, Terrell Owens had nothing but good things to say about the Buffalo Bills as a team.
“I’m leaving America’s team (for) North America’s team,” Owens said at a news conference.
Ok, so I understand what he is saying here, and I appreciate the Dallas dig! But really, North America’s team, come on T.O., your playing in Buffalo now, the only people who care about the Bills outside of Buffalo, Rochester, and a hand full in Toronto, are people who used to live in Buffalo, Rochester, and Toronto. Fans in other cities don’t get excited about their team hosting the Bills (other than almost being able to count it as a win).
“I must move on, and it’s another beginning for me,” Owens said. “If I can be that extra added piece to get them to the playoffs, then that’s what I’m here for. I looked at the defensive side of ball and offensive side of the ball, and these guys have all the pieces.”
Really, all the right pieces? T.O., the Bills are about as far away as contending as you are to resigning with the Cowboys.
The Bills still have a lot of wholes, and are going to need more than one star player for more than a year to make anything happen in the league.
Maybe I need a pair of rose colored glasses, but I do not see Owens making enough of an impact to turn this franchise in the right direction.
