In an unusual way, the Seattle Seahawks are a high profile team this year being counted on to make a solid impression. They have an all-time college coach in Pete Caroll trying to lead them with one of the few star running backs left in the league, Marshawn Lynch. The Seattle Seahawks made a run a couple of seasons back in the playoffs of 2011, but fizzled out in the 2011-2012 season.  This year’s team brings new players and new expectations. The Matt Flynn-Terrell Owens connection is the most important new connection for the NFL game this year.  In order to keep growing its league, the NFL will need Flynn and T.O. to step up their games. Matt Flynn is a possible breakout star and T.O. is recognizable as the ultimate love-hate character. T.O. is that rare character in sports that divides sports fans, but tends to deliver when it comes to performance.  At 38 years old and out of the league for a while, he is out to prove the skeptics wrong and show he’s got both game and a posi...

T.O. making strong early impression with Seahawks

The word out of Seattle that recently signed wide receiver Terrell Owens has looked pretty good so far in practices apparently isn't club-produced hyperbole. A few of the Seahawks' defenders who have gone against the veteran in camp suggested that T.O. still has something left in the tank. He is, according to the defenders, in fairly good shape given his time away from...

Terrell Owens and Pete Carroll pranks Seahawks players with fake argument (Video)

We all know that Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll is fan of pranks and his latest one came with the help of newly-acquired wide receiver, Terrell Owens. During the Seahawks first meeting with Owens in attendance, Pete decided to call him up to the middle of the room to tell a story. After a few minutes, Owens decided to go a rant about not being able to wear #81...

Seahawks violate CBA rules, will likely be fined

AP Photo According to Danny O’Neil of the Seattle Times, the Seahawks violated the new CBA by allowing wide receiver Terrell Owens to wear pads on his first day of practice. “When Terrell Owens took the practice field for the first time on Wednesday, he was wearing shoulder pads. “And while that might seem like it should be expected given the fact — you know — he was going...

Can Terrell Owens and Randy Moss turn back the clock?

Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome back to the NFL two former Pro Bowl Wide Receivers, Terrell Owens and Randy Moss. Both have been irrelevant in the NFL for the past couple years and both are looking to make a comeback in their mid to late thirties. Moss, 35 was last seen in the NFL during [...]

Terrell Owens: Is His World Famous Attitude Gone?

Why not? That has become the prevailing attitude over the Seahawks' decision to sign Terrell Owens. He's on a one-year deal for the veteran minimum, which constitutes a flier not an investment. He's in great shape, and for all the problems attributed to him, a lack of production has never been among them. Not only that, but receiver is the single biggest bare spot...

Former NFL tight end Christian Fauria .After listening to former NFL tight end Christian Fauria bad-mouth Hall of Fame-caliber wide receiver Terrell Owens by repeatedly saying how he would never give Owens another chance in the NFL, I’ve got to say, I haven’t met many people with a ‘holier than thou’ attitude as Fauria.Sure, the 13-year veteran earned two Super Bowl titles...

Report: Jets Have “Remote” Interest in Chad Johnson

There are two problems with Chad Johnson signing with a new NFL team The first one is because he was cut so early in Dolphins camp, we don’t really know what his skill set is right now. Was last season with the Patriots a fluke or has he just lost it? The second problem is that the team that brings him in, has to have a coach as flamboyant as he is. That eliminates a lot of the...

Cowboys, Steelers keeping tabs on Burress

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...
