Just take a look at that face!
I remember a time not so long ago when I once again heard the term "Three-Headed Monster." It works well in sports and most recently it has been the fans in Boston who have been able to smile as it is mentioned. This, of course, would be referring to the Celtics trio of Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, and Kevin Garnett, which just last year brought the city its 17th NBA Championship. And now another monster may be born.
Terrell Owens was recently cut by the Dallas Cowboys after months of locker room controversy. Of course, this is not the first time Owens has brought internal battles to a team, and so, as Owens' potential suitors begin to be discussed, the presence of a "strong" locker room is constantly mentioned.
Among the most headstrong regimes in the NFL are the New England Patriots. Just two years ago they brought in the previously disgruntled challenge of Randy Moss and never did we hear of any problems. Come to think of it, there was a Super Bowl appearance and a record set for NFL touchdowns by both a QB and receiver.
So, do they dare attempt it with Owens?
You can't say the trio of Brady, Moss, and Owens wouldn't be intimidating. They may all be getting older, but with a stellar offensive line, another monster would surely be mentioned in Massachusetts.
Just look at that face!
If any team has the veteran leadership within, it would be either Pittsburgh or New England. And though it would go against everything he preaches, Belichick is probably foaming at the mouth with the opportunity to add to his legacy as an NFL coach. The fact that he acquired these two for a combined single draft pick (fourth round, John Bowie) is alone a thing of beauty.
It's a good time to be living in Bean Town.
