Let me get this straight.
The Cincinnati Bengals already have a uber ego freak named Chad Johnson (I refuse to call him Ochocinco, because it’s stupid). They already have a man-child who needs a whole locker room just for his ego and they want to sign…Terrell Owens?
This is like if George Steinbrenner were to of brought Jerry Jones on to be his general manager. There’s just something inherently wrong about it.
Terrell Owens and Chad Johnson are too of the most egotistical and crazy players in the whole of the NFL. I do believe that neither of them has been arrested for any crime, but never getting arrested has nothing to do with if you are a wacko or not.
I’m just venting because this sounds like a reach of a signing (if they make it) to me.
This is all coming from me, the person who actually thinks a lot of teams have made a mistake by not signing Owens. I know there are all sorts of reasons these teams didn’t bother and I don’t particularly blame them, namely he’s slowed considerably, he’s 36, he thinks he’s the son of Poseidon, etc…
What would these teams have to lose? Sign him to a 1 year deal to minimally guaranteed money, he doesn’t work out, cut him loose. No harm, no foul.
If the Bengals sign Owens it would take an already semi-broken locker room and could make it a complete fracture. I mean, Carson Palmer already has Ochocinco to deal with, why add another souped up egomaniac?
I think the Bengals are a playoff team without T.O., so maybe they need to just leave well enough alone.
Update: It appears the Cincinnati Bengals have deemed Terrell Owens to be worth the risk as they have signed The T.O. Show to a one-year, $2 million deal.
That now means that the Cincinnati Bengals have more crazy on their team than anyone else.
Not yet, but they are #1 on his wish list to be traded to. Following the Knicks on his list, in order, are the Orlando Magic, Dallas Mavericks, and Portland Trail Blazers (this according to Chris Broussard of ESPN.com).
If the Knickerbockers could wrangle Chris Paul from the Hornets it would be a fantastic coup for a team that has been among the worst teams in the league the last handful of years. It would give them a tremendous base of Paul & Amar’e Stoudemire and a great reason for Carmelo Anthony to decline that three-year, $65 million contract extension from the Nuggets.
My guess though would be the Orlando Magic (#2 on his trade wish list). There would be some extra baggage thrown in on this deal if it happened and it wouldn’t be all good for New Orleans. Read the rest of this entry »
I realize that this headline could be taken in so many ways and if you took it in the wrong way…well you’ve got one dirty ass mind! I mean this blog is “Don’t Kid Yourself (sports edition)”!!
Anyway, I was just looking around the world-wide web and came across this article on ESPN.com about former USC quarterback Pat Haden replacing Mike Garrett as the Trojans athletic director. Also in this article was the mentioning of USC voluntarily returning Reggie Bush’s Heisman Trophy award.
My opinion? Great move. An unprecedented move, but a great move nonetheless.
Moving on, this article made me think about how Pete Carroll happened to leave to be the head coach of the Seattle Seahawks at just the moment it seemed like the NCAA was going to drop the hammer on the Trojans.
Coincidence? Coach Carroll says so. Read the rest of this entry »
This is a picture of Y.A. Tittle when he played for New York football Giants.
It’s hard to imagine what you would have to go through to feel so utterly beaten to just collapse to your knees like this.
I’ll keep this short and just say that this is my favorite sports related picture of all time (thus my choosing it for the header of this blog). To see someone to broken, bloody, and so vulnerable is really something. This is a masterpiece of a picture.
