If things get any nuttier in Washington, the Redskins will have to consider hiring people to deal with season ticket cancellations on a full time basis.
Washington Redskins quarterback Donovan McNabb has encouraged the team's coaching staff to consider signing free-agent wide receiver Terrell Owens, despite the acrimony that marked their time as Philadelphia Eagles teammates, according to multiple sources.
Coach Mike Shanahan said the Redskins are not actively pursuing Owens. A team source said the Redskins have made upgrading their wide receiver position a high priority, but prefer to avoid bringing Owens into their locker room if another solution can be found.
A source close to McNabb said the quarterback and Owens recently talked about the possibility of reuniting while shooting an episode for the television show "Pros vs. Joes" in Los Angeles. The episode, schedule to air in July, features McNabb and Owens playing on the same basketball team.
That's exactly what will help you win--shoot TV episodes with a bunch of jackballs. That's a great way to focus on the things that are happening right now. Never mind that McNabb has to adapt to a head coach who has been out of football for a little while, an entirely new offense starved of decent weapons, and learn a playbook for a franchise that has had little or no offense in years.
What do I know? I've never driven an NFL franchise into the ground. Has Dan Snyder picked up the option to bring back Deion Sanders and Vinny Testaverde yet? The Redskins need to sling a little more money around because it's a "why the hell not?" situation when you can't draft, can't go one year to the next without firing everyone and can't win.
