Those acting classes appear to be paying off for Terrell Owens. Because after this, I figured his post-NFL career would be relegated to sashaying down the catwalk. But his defense of Mike Shanahan's decision to bench Donovan McNabb for Rex Grossman last Sunday was almost believable. Up till Chad Ochocinco, T.O.'s co-host on the T. Ocho Show, offered this:
"If anyone else out there feels that Rex Grossman gives the Washington Redskins a better chance than Donovan McNabb to win a game with two minutes left on the clock, they need to slap theyself."
And so it shall be done.
In related news of the absurd, former Redskins assistant to the traveling secretary Vinny Cerrato was "dumbfounded" by McNabb's benching.
He told Baltimore's 105.7 The Fan (via Sports Bog): "I mean, Rex Grossman's never won anything, and Donovan's been to championship games. Many a time I've been on opposite sidelines and he's come back and beat us. And the thing about it is, I think Mike's a great coach, he's a good friend of mine, but I just don't agree with that decision. Because basically, the two-minute drill, you're going out there, you're playing like you're playing in the street."
If there's an authority on never winning anything, Vinny's the guy.
