owen celebrity

Terrell Owens is not happy these days. He's a thirty-eight-year-old receiver that's out of the NFL recovering from a serious knee injury that he might have suffered while filming his VH1 show. Many would argue his questionable injury status, diminishing stats, age and negative reputation make it quite obvious why TO's future NFL prospects are bleak. According to Owens, those aren't the reasons why he's not in the NFL, instead this is what he had to say to Dallas radio station KESN-FM on this subject,

"(The reason) I didn't get picked up was that a lot of general managers bought into the fact that the media thinks that I'm this bad guy, this rebel guy, this disruptive guy that divides and messes up team's chemistry."

And who could blame him? Didn't you SEE him dominate in the 2012 Celebrity Beach Bowl? He looked fantastic! He made those celebrities out there look like amateurs!

TO Arquette

Sure, it does look like David Arquette might be bringing him down in that picture, but how soon do we forget that David Arquette was once a wrestling world champion?

hoge TO

Wait, scratch that entire thing. That's the media's Merril Hoge catching a ball in front of Owens. If you allow Hoge to get open/intercept a pass in front of you in the Celebrity Beach Bowl then you probably shouldn't be taking up a roster spot in the NFL next year. Also, I feel like we are throwing around the word "celebrity" too much if Merril Hoge apparently qualifies as one.

You gotta hand it to Owens though. The stunning naivety of going on a media station and explaining that the media are to blame for his situation doesn't even faze him. With Randy Moss announcing his return to the NFL, the market for malcontent aging WR's who missed the 2011 season is heating up.

Terrell Owens needs to do only one thing to find his way back to the NFL.

The world is talking about Terrell Owens again for all of the wrong reasons. T.O. is and was a gifted NFL caliber player and we believe he can still be a force on an NFL team. But as time goes on and he makes statement after statement after statement, what has not either been conveyed to Terrell or what he refuses to see is that his current behavior is exactly what teams are running...

Should the Chicago Bears bring in Randy Moss, Terrell Owens?

The Chicago Bears need wide receivers.  Randy Moss and Terrell Owens are future Hall of Fame receivers who still have game in them and are seeking employment.  The Bears need Moss and Owens.  Sound rational?  Sure.  Is it true?  You better believe it.  The Chicago Bears should make a bold move and bring in Moss and Owens for the 2012 NFL season.

T.O. Open, NFL Doesn’t Care

Major kudos to Nancy Hass for her well written Feb. 2012 GQ Magazine piece on unemployed WR Terrell Owens. He’s blown through $80 million … Has no friends. Four kids by four women to support. No team wants him. Here’s a guy who has first ballot Hall of Fame credentials. His not being a hall of fame caliber teammate has hurt him tremendously. This is yet one more story of an...

Cowboys News: Romo and Tiger Fall Short, While Terrell Owens Is Somehow Still Relevant

The news on Saturday night about Tiger Woods was that his late push had put him in position to challenge for the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. He fell far short, shooting a three-over 75 to finish 11 shots behind the winner, Phil Mickelson. The Cowboys’ angle for this story was that Woods teamed up with amateur golfer and Dallas QB Tony Romo. There was some chatter about Woods...

Our panel lists many reasons to stay away from these free-agent receivers.

Running low: Do these NFL receivers have enough in the tank?

  At one time Hines Ward, Terrell Owens and Randy Moss were the best at their position.  Now these NFL wide receivers have been shunned or are reportedly tapped out. The problem is, they think that they still have something left to contribute to a NFL team. What do you think? 1) Randy Moss 6-4, 210 lbs age 35: In his day was one of the most dynamic wide receivers of his time posting...

Debating the Diva Wide Receivers

Moss or T.O.? Let’s be real – the answer might be neither.  Both receivers are on the wrong side of thirty years old (by a lot), Owens is desperate enough to join the Indoor Football League, and Moss managed to disappear in three different jerseys in his last year in the league. Beyond that, the wide receiver free agent market isn’t exactly lacking. Dwayne Bowe, Marques Colston...
