Andy Reid on Owens

Eagles coach Andy Reid addressed the media and said he had a "good" meeting with disgruntled receiver Terrell Owens.

He said that T.O. worked hard in practice, but had to stop for a while to work on his groin with a trainer. Broadcast reports said he did come back to practice.

Reid was not ready to commit on Owens playing Saturday night against the Ravens because of the groin injury.

Someone should tell Phil Sheridan about these comments. IMO Sheridan's columns are just as absurd as TO's actions, in the sense that both men are both committed to an extreme logical position because of personal reasons, and both appear delusional to some extent. Sheridan can't see the angles, and like Carlito Brigante said, "If you can't see the angles no more, youre in trouble..." When I read Sheridan's articles about TO I get the sense that Sheridan feels this issue is about him rather than the eagles. He says as much in his Q&A when he regularly laments that TO will not talk to the local Philly media, but will talk to media in Atlanta or Espn. I would be upset too, I suppose, but I wouldn't let it affect my work...

If you feel so, why don't you tell him through his Q&A?

Phil Sheridan couldn't be more correct. TO has to go!

Well, TO can "go" in many different ways, and if he "goes," the best way would be for the Eagles to trade him. As a fan, I think Sheridan's article is bad for the team, since TO's trade value, or even the likelyhood that a team will pick him up off waivers, decreases every time an influential media figure demonizes him, and speculates that he will ruin any team he joins. TO may very well not be able to coexist for more than a year on any team. But if Sheridan wants to ship him so bad, then he should be writing about how great last year was, and how any team (outside the division) would be lucky to have him, if only for a year.
