Should the Patriots call T.O.?

Updated: October 10, 2013

NORTH CAROLINA-(BASN)-With Tom Brady’s 52 consecutive games with a touchdown pass shattered last week against the Cincinnati Bengals, in which he was tossed around like a Raggedy-Ann doll, isn’t it about time for the evil genius known as Bill Belichick to go into his bag of tricks like the The Incredible Burt Wonderstone and pull an another “rabbit” out of his hat?

Seriously, with Wes Welker traded to the Broncos, Danny Amendola hurt, Brandon Lloyd released, Aaron Hernandez in jail for murder, Rob Gronkowski still recovering from back and ankle surgeries, Chad “OchoCinco” cut from the team, Danny Woodhead playing for the Chargers, isn’t it time for the Patriots to give Terrell Owens a call, and give this future Hall of Famer, who has scored 153 touchdowns in his career, while amassing 15,934 career yards and 1,078 career receptions, at least one more opportunity.

It would be the perfect picture.

Brady and T.O. together?

Yes, it would be an odd couple.

But, a potential dynamic duo, never the less.

The NFL, in fact, could advertise them as Lethal Weapon II, like Danny Glover and Mel Gibson?

Hell, why not?

The Pats brought in Randy Moss.

And, even, Tim Tebow to play quarterback.

So, why not Terrell Owens?

Plus, with Owens wearing the patriotic New England uniform, it would give ESPN’s Skip Bayless something to complain about, everyday, until the playoffs, which would help boost First Takes ratings.

Honestly, it would be a match made in heaven.

Just think about?

T.O. and Tom Brady.

This odd combination, in fact, would give football fans a real reason to endure the boring coverage of CBS’ AFC Sunday match-ups as well as give Owens another shot at winning a Super Bowl ring, which I believe he deserves.

Besides, everybody loves Tom Brady.

And, everybody knows T.O. loves his quarterbacks.

Keep in mind, with all of this T.O talk, that Tom Brady is 36 years old, and entering in his 14th season in the league.

Therefore, he is starting to get a little frustrated trying to coach and tutor a bunch of inexperienced wide receivers, who have a tendency to drop passes or run wrong routes during games.

“It takes really smart football players to be in this system..:” said Brady, the two-time league and Super Bowl MVP.

“Guys that have done well have been smart players who can adjust quickly?”

With that said, there is nobody in the NFL with a football I.Q. higher than T. O., who I believe still can stretch the field and learn the complex Pats’ playbook, while making a sudden impact on the field.
