While we wait for the inevitable calls for the sacking of Donovan McNabb and / or Andy Reid, Geoffrey Norman has this excellent piece on what T.O. means for America's unions. It's very fun.
But before we throw Owens into the dustbin of Philadelphia history with other jerkoff athletes who crippled their teams (Matt Geiger, I'm looking at you), I have one final question: Instead of suspending Owens and then deactivating him and then, next season, potentially having to face him on the other side of the field, wouldn't it have made more sense for the Eagles to have kept him on active duty and simply sent him across the middle on every play in the November 6 game against the Redskins? And McNabb, in a show of sportsmanship, could have thrown the ball his way on every down. And you know, what with that sports hernia, a lot of McNabb's passes were bound to be high. Maybe the problem would have taken care of itself.
