Peter King says T.O. bears all the blame for his latest problems with his team. I'm a little puzzled by this piece of advice King gives Michael Irvin: "you're looking pretty silly blindly sticking up for a guy who would have thrown you out of the Cowboys locker room in a heartbeat 15 years ago." How would T.O. have had the ability to throw Irvin out of the locker room 15 years ago?
I'm also not entirely convinced that Bill Belichick wouldn't have taken Owens (after all, Corey Dillon had a similar reputation), and I strongly disagree with King's description of New England's receivers as "pedestrian."
Ultimately, King writes, "my guess is Owens is done as an Eagle."

"Last team with the ball wins" is a cliche, but sometimes cliches are the best way to get across the central narrative of an important game. If you like great quarterback play, you have to watch the NFC Championship Game.
