The early performance of Terrell Owens in Seattle, and the solid reports on older wideouts like Randy Moss in San Francisco and Miami's potty-mouthed Chad Ochocinco/Johnson (anyone see the opening episode of "Hard Knocks," in which Dolphins first-year coach Joe Philbin cautioned Johnson for dropping the F-bomb so much during a news conference?), might hasten the return...
