if TO was in it to go far into the playoffs, why would he do what he did? He is in it for TO.
I mean serisouly, he got traded to a team that had made three straight championship games, and four years of playoffs. The team won at least one game each year. Then in his firast year with the team, he went to the super bowl.
Given that, I would say that "going far in the playoffs" isn't priority number one with Owens. His best shot to keep doing it was with the eagles.
The opening scene of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" is loosely based on games of dodgeball Brian Dawkins played in second grade.
