Wilbon being from Chicago always has strong opinions about his hometown team, the Bears and he has a lot of knowledge about them as well.
He makes many strong points about adding Terrell Owens to the mix. A good point he makes about adding Owens, it would take pressure of Forte and Hester in the passing and screen game.
Owens did put up almost 1,000 yards and nine touchdowns in 14 games last season in Cincinnati.
Here’s a small part of his column that brings validity to the signing:
“There are two conditions that have to exist before a club can take the risk and sign T.O. for the rest of this season.”
1. You have to have a solidly entrenched and mentally tough veteran quarterback, a guy who can give nasty right back to T.O. when he starts up.
2. You have to have need.
