I'm no Cowboys fan, but I've had a hard time understanding why those who are fans of them don't like the move. Seriously, what are they gonna do, get worse (with their what, 2 playoff wins in the last decade). They picked up one of the top 3 recievers in the game, and in a round about way from a divison opponent. Don't get me wrong, I know WHY people don't like T.O., but all night I heard Dallas fans whining about the move while I was at work-- but in reality it was a serious upgrade to one of the many key components they needed. Sure it's a gamble, but c'mon!
I'm laying 3-1 odds that after a couple of wins you'll see lots of Owen's cowboys jerseys being worn, and if they make the playoffs Dallas fans won't even remember here ever had a past before this season.

My guess is that Jerry J. thinks his coach can handle T.O. I am sure there were some meetings behind the sceens to get things aired out between the two sides. Will have to wait an see what happens here. I agree, the fans will forget about anything about players if the team wins.

Well, it turns out I am pretty happy that they did it. Because they got TO, they had to release Johnson, and my team just signed him to 5 years. That gives us Johnson and Steve Smith now. That's a pretty nice backfield combination!
