I would like to thank Terrell Owens for making me look smart. (Frankly, his stellar performance this season was starting to make my August article about him look overly vitriolic.)
Lucky for me, T.O.’s out-of-control ego has made the article prescient.
Some might say that the Redskins’ victory over the Eagles, last eve, proves just how valuable T.O. is. Nonsense. Nobody ever accused T.O. of lacking talent. The rap on him has always been his negative attitude — and his recent behavior confirms it. By “fumbling” his life, T.O. cost the Eagles the game – and maybe the entire postseason. He has dropped the ball and failed to answer the call.

Not only has McNabb proven himself to be on of the most effective Quarterbacks in the NFL, he has displayed tremendous courage and leadership.
By playing injured–and by staying above the fray regarding T.O.–McNabb has proven to be the bigger man. McNabb has proven to be the bigger man.
My August article decried Owens’ behavior as a negative influence on our children (who view atheltes as heroes to pattern themselves after). While T.O. fails miserably, McNabb has proven himself worthy of being labeled a role-model worth having.
