I must admit one tiny part of me wants TO in a Falcon uniform.
There is a part of me like that as well. BUt I too realize that the chances of a T.O.-Falcons marriage working are about slim and none.
It would all depend on T.O. behaving himself. If his run in Philly is any indicator, the best we could hope for is that he would keep his mouth relatively shut for the first year he was here, and then expect the blowup to occur in 2007. Then hope that his first year here produces a Super Bowl ring.
I ran the numbers. Based on how many times the Eagles have thrown to T.O. over the course of the last 1.5 years, and how much this team currently throws the football. T.O. would wind up with between 64-67 catches for the year. Well T.O. hasn't caught that few passes since 1999, back when Jerry Rice was still the 49ers go-to receiver, and T.O. was just a talented #2 receiver. Right now, the Falcons don't have an offense that could satisfy Owens. T.O. couldn't be happy being used like a "No. 2" guy would. He couldn't share catches with Crumpler. Only Westbrook (73 catches in 2004 vs. T.O.'s 77) has challenged him for touches since Rice. Tai Streets had 72 grabs in 2002, but T.O. had 100, so you knew he was relatively content.
Basically, short of a miraculous change in T.O.'s personality, he could not work in Atlanta, even for a single year.
