    Time Out For T.O.

    The Dallas Cowboys did a good thing by releasing Terrell Owens on Thursday.

    The Dallas Cowboys did a good thing by releasing Terrell Owens on Thursday.

    Not because of the alleged chemistry issues he created in the locker room and not because he was a distraction as many would have you to believe.

    Simply, this was a good move because it was time.

    This has been mentioned before, but the franchises who are traditionally successful have a keen ability to know when it’s time to cut ties.

    With it being NCAA tournament time, blind resumes are all the rage.

    Look at this blind resume: “35-year-old wide receiver (who turns 36 in a few weeks) commands the fourth highest salary on a team that finished 9-7 the previous season. This wide receiver has played for two other teams, both of which he caused problems and allegedly couldn’t get along with his quarterbacks. He is coming off his worst season in eight years and has been top five in the league in drops in the last two.”

    If you read that, the natural reaction would be “of course you should release him”—but not with Owens for some reason.

    Taking just what he did on the field (despite the 10 touchdowns in 2008), it was time to release him.

    Besides, the Owens move should open Dallas’s eyes to its real strength.

    Name another team in the league that has three running backs as good Marion Barber III, Felix Jones and Tashard Choice. All three have different things they excel at and all three have proven they can play well in the NFL.

    Name another team that has a Pro Bowl tight end like Jason Witten—who is as good a blocker as he is a receiver—and second-year phenom Martellus Bennett, who has all the physical skills in the world.

    Add that with a bruising offensive line that struggles in pass blocking, but excels in run blocking and a quarterback that makes questionable decisions and what you are becomes clear.

    Dallas should be a smash mouth, powerful running attack.

    That would help out Roy E. Williams (not the one who got released) and rein Tony Romo in a bit.

    The Owens move—regardless of why it happened—might hurt Dallas in the short-term, but is great for the Cowboy’s future.

    Hey guys, Im a die hard dallas fan. I did initially have negative reaction to the T.O. release. I like what you did with the blind resume. There were times T.O. dropped a pass and I was pissed! However, I hate the fact that noone ever talks about all the mistakes that Romo makes, and how soft the coach is. I also agree with Steven A. Smith (who can be annoying sometimes), who states “of all the things people say about T.O. no team mate has ever come forward and called him a liar.” We’ll see what happens. Peace

    It was the best move Dalls could make. Lets see what team is stupid enough to take him.
