Haha well I just like Terrell Owens. I know he is an attention whore, but has gotten a terrible rap over the years. We have players who have murdered people, gotten arrested countless times and are criminals in the NFL. Yet people view TO as the worst person in the world. I dont like that. I appreciate his talents on the field, and recognize that he is one of the best players to ever put on a 49er uniform. Thats all.
He is no doubt one of the most talented WRs the 49ers have ever had. The only issue I would have with him signing is that I feel that is for players that are going to be considered for our HOF and Ring of Honor. Personally I can't place him in that regard. Just feel that if you are to get those honors that 75% of your playing time should have been with us.
You can argue it is because he was destroying the team or in my opinion the 49ers, at the time, simply did not have a great foundation from the top that could not handle talented players with egos. Really would like to have seen how Mike Singletary or Harbaugh with Baalke would have handled this vs the blow up that was happening when Owens left.
Look at Davis. He was following the same path, but was reigned in and has now become a great asset to our team environment. TO could have been molded the same way but never had that strong presence to direct him. By the time Parcels got a hold of him, not only did Parcels want no part of it, but TO was set in his ways. Andy Reed has never been that type of coach so TO continued down his path.
Went off on a tangent there but still fell TO simply was not a part of our organization long enough to be a part of those honors.
