After his first season during which he led the Cowboys in both receptions and touchdowns, but also led the team in dropped passes, will Terrell finally have the break-out season for the Cowboys like he had for the Eagles in 2004? If his recent surprise practice sessions at the Cowboys minicamp is any indication, then it would have to be a resounding yes.
Being an avid Cowboys fan, I have to admit that I, like most other fans of the “Boys”, did not exactly relish the acquisition in 2006 of such a volatile, yet talented player. I go further and admit I almost wished he had left in the off-season as was highly speculated. But if he can continue on the quick path of recovery from his finger surgery and not blow-up with the media, then maybe I will be able to proudly hail him as a true Dallas Cowboy.
These are certainly a lot of “ifs” and that is why I don’t think it will ever happen for T.O. in Dallas. He will have plenty of opportunity with Tony Romo starting at QB for a full season and the other talent added in the off-season to help the Cowboys possibly go deeper into the playoffs than they have in the past 10 years. But let’s face it, Cowboys are Cowboys and T.O. is T.O. and neither the twain shall meet.
