Terrell Owens to Buffalo. The Bills don’t get it, huh?

March 07, 2009 | Drew Forrester

Somewhere today, Scott Norwood is preparing a “thank you” text to Terrell Owens.

By the end of 2009, it’s about a 99% certainty that Owens will become the most hated Buffalo Bills player of all time. 

Move over Norwood, here’s comes T.O.

Owens’ signing today in Buffalo is absolutely perfect.

Let him go up there and freeze his jewels off for five months in the NFL’s equivalent of football-Siberia-style.  His only saving grace?  He gets to make an annual trip to Miami as part of Buffalo’s schedule.

I guess the Bills haven’t been watching much NFL action for the last five years.

Either that, or they just assume he can’t really be that much of a lunatic.

Assumption, meet Reality.

The Bills signed Owens to a one-year, $6.5 million dollar deal today.

By about October, they’ll look back and say, “What on earth were we thinking?”

Yeah, he’ll catch a touchdown on opening day when the Bills beat the Jets, 23-20.  He’ll probably catch another one in week #2 when Buffalo shocks someone on the road.  Everyone will say, “Is T.O. the difference in Buffalo?”

By week #5, Trent Edwards will throw the ball to Lee Evans ten times in one game and Owens will blow a gasket, pretend like he swallowed a handful of sleeping pills, do 100 sit-ups with his shirt off out in his front yard and proclaim that Trent Edwards doesn’t like girls.

Bet on it.

Buffalo was smart to only give him a one-year deal and six and a half million dollars.

Owens will spend half that much in fur coats and anti-freeze for his car.

Somewhere tonight, Scott Norwood is smiling.

And Trent Edwards isn’t.
