And where does Ricky Watters fit into your theory?
Ah nuts, I'm sorry about the confusion regarding my use of the term "nuts."
I certainly did not mean to imply that you were nuts, nor did I mean to doubt the veracity of your anecdote.
Your anecdote jived with newspaper reports that described Owens as a very decent kid. That's why I said "nuts." As I mentioned in my second post, it would be so much easier to toss TO in the dumpster, along with Haley, if he didn't start out as such a good kid. You described the Terrell Owens that I found so promising, not the TO that I was happy to see leave the team.
As for Waters, I never had a use for the man and you're right to bring him up as another crack in the wall. But I'm willing to give him his bona fides: he was outstanding in the flat, very difficult to tackle, and the poor SOB had to run sweep left a lot more than was good for him.
Beyond that, though, I don't have much use for Ricky Waters.
