According to ESPN's Chris Mortensen if the Eagles release Terrell Owens this week , he would go through waivers, the 2 worst teams in league, which would be us and the Packers, would be first in line to negotiate with TO, but the way Chaserly is, we wont sign him, but just think, TO in Blue and Red:yahoo:

I hope not. He is a horrible locker room presence and the Texans have AJ and Mathis already.

Why not? It's not like he could make things worse than they are. The team's fighting with each other and can't win. At least with T.O., I'd get to hear about the Texans more on ESPN. Well, more than "we are so lame all we could do was come up with adjectives to describe the Texans."

I think it would be hilarious. He would of course become our number 1 receiver, then he would suck, then he would complain that Carr doesn't throw him the ball enough. It would be wonderful for the comedy value, if nothing else.

I would love T.O. in Houston. Could you imagine AJ on one side and TO on the other. One receiver who is big and strong and the other who knows how to get open even if he is trippled team.

That would also cut the arguments on whether Carr is a good QB. If you cant hit those two you dont deserve to play football.

If Carr can handle all the critisicm,all the sacks, and all the hits he's taken, TO wont hurt That Much.

TO rejected the Ravens because of Boller. You think he would come here to play with Boller SW? I wouldn't want that a-h even if we had a good offense and were one player away.

What makes you think TO would get here, even if McNair OK'd such an acquisition (which he wouldn't, by the way)?

kenneth24
11-06-2005, 07:17 PM
What's TO going to say? "everytime I come out of my breaks on the routes the refs are blowing the play dead already!" or "When I look back for the ball I see Carr being helped up by the O-line!" or "I can't concentrate on my routes bc of the blood-curdling yells made by that QB":goodnight

I know we won't hear like most people on these message boards is that if TO doesn't make the catch, is how its Carr's fault for giving him the opportunity!:brickwall

Eagles | Owens had a Fight with Douglas
Sun, 6 Nov 2005 06:31:31 -0800

Mark Eckel, of the Trenton Times, reports Philadelphia Eagles WR Terrell Owens had a fistfight with former defensive end and current team ambassador Hugh Douglas. The fight occurred in front of several of his teammates. According to one of the sources the Owens-Douglas fight "was like WWE Smackdown." Another source said both men threw at least two punches during the altercation and when it was over Owens challenged QB Donovan McNabb first and then everyone else in the room saying, "You want some. Anyone else want some." The Eagles refused to comment about the situation, other than the statement that revealed Owens' suspension. Owens and Douglas have been at odds since training camp and almost got into an altercation in an elevator at Lehigh University.

Pretty good reason why we DON'T need Terrell Owens on our team. He's got a lot of talent but his miniscule brain size rivals that of a stegosaurus.

No, I don't think very many Texans fans, or football fans, want him playing on their team. TO is cornering himself much like Ricky Williams did last year.

11-06-2005, 08:02 PM
I think he's doing it even moreso than Ricky. Ricky bailed on his team and let them down, but he wasn't talking bad about them or trying to pick fights. It's a lot easier to forgive Ricky for being a pothead than Terrell and his roid raging.

Perhaps TO can play for the Brett "The Warrior" Favre in Green Bay. He basically foreshadowed it with his comments.

IMO, TO has become a huge distraction over the last couple of years. He is, IMMHO, the best WR in the league, but it appears that his attitude is so volatile, that only a no-nonsense, badder (if that can be considered a word) than Satan himself coach could handle him. His isn't a case for the faint at heart.

According to Chris Mortenson on ESPN, the Texans were offered T.O. in some deal prior to the expansion draft and rejected it. So, I wouldn't expect us to make a run at him if he was sent to waivers.

Think about it this way. Hell is already bad enough as it is without him here. After losing a game do you really want to hear a sound byte of TO saying something extraordinarily stupid over and over again on ESPN? Or do you want to see the national media break in to cover TO pouting about this or that? Honestly it wouldn't bring more media exposure to the Texans it would just bring the TO spotlight in the Houston area, and TO would be the only one getting exposure. The only way to punish TO is to deprive him of the thing he most desires...the spotlight.

texplayer2
11-07-2005, 12:03 AM
I think TO has taken this step on purpose and believes he will get out of Philly and on to a contender. That is what happened when he was with the Niners. If we picked him up, he would probably treat us like the Ravens. But if he did come to play and ridicule, he might just intimidate Carr enough to forget about the Pass rush and throw the ball quicker. Or else T.O. would be giving him grief on Sportscenter.
I don't think he would sign with a team who was not in contention so we are safe.:texflag: Untill next weeks pass rush.:goodnight

11-07-2005, 08:30 AM
Yeah, I could see that... TO comes up behind Dom and starts questioning what the heck he's writing in that notebook while Dom is scribbling away in it. He then gets tired of that and follows Carr up and down the sideline explaining on how to QB. Then he sees Pendry on the sideline and realizes he has a direct connection and starts to explain how he should get the ball more and expects a game stoppage when he surpasses his 100 TD catch with the 101st and 102nd.

11-07-2005, 08:36 AM
:texflag: Me personally think that just the consept of TO coming to houston might be a good thing. You have to admit that he has a winning presence about him. He is a passionate player who likes to win. For some reason my team does not have that right now. If he could come in and get the team to have some self pride then that would be good even if he does or doesn't do anything for the team. As long as he taught them to be proud and that they can play against the teams every week. Then that would be enough for me.......

Under normal circumstance I would not want TO, but the fact is that he would be cheap and we would only have him for 1.5 years if he were waived. It would bring some excitement and would arm us with another weapon for our QB. TO is the king of Yards After Catch and we have to be at the very bottom of the league in this category.

A good YAC by our WR's would help a bad pass blocking line as the concept of getting the ball downfiled changes from a 5-7 step drop to more quick hits.

I was just reporting what Mort said, so there is some confusion. NFL Players Association lists his base salary next year as $770K. That would be cheap, but Mort said (and I remember something about this from the pre-season hold-out) there is a big off-season bonus that is going to go on next year's cap.

Let's run out Andre Johnson, TO, and Mathis out there at WR next year and then see who has trouble getting open. Go ahead and toss in Reggie Bush out of the backfield as well. There's no chance it's going to happen but it's weird that we could probably do that if we chose at year's end. I mean what the hell would safeties do with those 3 guys at WR? Cry?

Just tell everyone the plan. We just use TO to get single coverage on Andre and Mathis deep, we never toss him the ball. Then the local media boycotts him post game, so he has nobody to ***** to. He would be a great decoy until he kills himself in the locker room, at which point we don't have to pay him anymore.

TO doesn't deserve to play in the NFL. He should never see another contract like the one he currently has. This entire time TO has been about getting a new contract, big signing bonus, larger contract then he has now. But what team is really going to give that much money to this guy. TO is a great WR, I give him that but no player is worth all the issues that he causes.

This I tend to agree with. Ricky clearly likes his smoke. That doesn't really surprise me all that much when you think about it. Ricky came from UT and UT is in Austin and it's not like there isn't a precedent of guys in Austin liking their smoke. Hey, Willie Nelson hits the bong. I'm not coming out in support of it or anything but a generally well meaning guy who likes to get stoned to the point of making a really bad decision is a far, far cry from Terrell Owens. There's something inside Owens and I'm not sure what it is. He exudes selfishness, anger, and arrogance. He shows little or no respect to players who have clearly earned respect in the NFL. He makes mistakes, apologizes, and then tops the previous mistakes with even bigger mistakes.

Clearly as demonstrated by his frequent apologies he is a liar.

Ricky is a lot of things too but I think that even with his dope smoking habit most of the things you can say about Ricky Williams are positive (it might be 51-49 admittedly). I can't remember the last time anyone had anything positive to say about Terrell Owens. He can run fast and catch a football might be about it.

I have no idea which of the other 31 NFL franchises might, after careful vetting of his dossier, decide that his talent and ability outweigh his personality quirks.

Im of the mind that T.O.'s suspension will be overturned by an arbitrator ....He has broken NO NFL Rules not a single one ....When this happens the Eagles will have three options ....

Cut him at which time he'll become a FA

Trade him ....They would never get value for him

Keep him on the roster and pay him for the remainder of the season .


In all probability they would cut him and take the cap hit .... Its obvious that he's not a fit for that team and is causing more problems for them off the field than he's worth on the field .

That said ..... If i were GM of either the Texans or Packers who would be the first two teams with the option to negotiate with him I WOULD take a shot at him ..... Why you ask .... simple , the guy is probably the best player in the NFL at his position ....You say he comes with too much baggage ? I say think again , this is a guy who is at risk of ending his career by making a similar mistake ..... I would sign him to a series of one year contracts with stipulations in them which would viod the contract if he were to do certian things on or off the field ....

Think he wouldnt sign a one year deal ? .... why not , NFL contracts arent guarantee'd to begin with and are more or less not worth the paper they are written on past the existing season in many cases . This is what was at the Root of the Problem in Philly to begin with .

Call me crazy but I really think faced with the loss of his career this guy will get his act together off the field ...Thats a whole lotta money to lose for speaking your mind


By the way , If Bret Favre was the QB for the Eagles .... would they have a better record ? (I would have to agree w/ T.O on this and say Yes .... but it wont cost me millions) :tomato:

MorKnolle
11-09-2005, 12:35 PM
The suspension won't get overruled because they are allowed to suspend him for up to four games for conduct detrimental to the team and such, and there's nothing he can do about his deactivation once the suspension is over, but he'll get to be paid to sit at home so I'm not sure he'll make much noise about that.

How would I game plan for Vick/TO? I'd have my 2nd string safety play way, way back with one goal in mind. How hard can you hit TO when he catches the ball and how many times can you do that before you get there late and get thrown out of the game.

Now understand I am not advocating intentionally injuring Terrell Owens. I am simply saying that being made to pay hard (which is a time honored part of the game of football) for every completion would be the only way to go. I mean big 'ol snot bubble making, blackout causing, black and blue bruise creating punishment type of tackling. If my 2nd stringer knocks himself out of the game then I put one of my lighter linebackers back there. The name of the game is knock TO out of his cleats. Think Jason Simmons and Chris Brown last year.

In the second half I would only need to deal with Vick. That alone is problem enough for any defense.

I believe that TO has some issues, and he has handled personnel concerns very poorly. I don't think it would be a good idea for the Texans to sign him, and would be rather uneasy in expecting a confrontation without prior warnings. However, if the Texans or the Cowboys were to make the decision to sign TO, there is no way I will stop watching or going to see the Texans or Boyz play. Football is too important to me to allow one disgruntled player define my interest in the sport.

TCan you imagine a Vick/TO tandem?!

Sure I can imagine it. TO gets 2 catches for 17 yards one game and then 1 for 65 and a TD the next--alternate similar stats over the year. TO then spends every week after week #3 going on talk shows talking about how overhyped Vick is and he should leave the running to people who are paid to do it and try playing QB which is supposed to be his position. Frankly, I would like to see it happen for the entertainment value.

As horrible a year as David Carr is having, he averages more yards per game and 4% more accuracy than Vick--just for reference on how impressed TO would be with going from McNabb (160 yards per game more, 10 more TD's) who is clearly inadequate to TO.

Exactly! :thumbup Think of the entertainment value, man! Not just on the field, but off of it, too!

Personally, I hope the Cowboys are crazy enough to take him, especially since most Cowboy fans I know hate TO because of the star incident. :heh:

Heck, the turmoil alone would justify being stuck watching Cowboys games every week because of market share.

Yea I'm still angered by the star issue but I do know for a fact that Terrell is friendly with some of the Cowboys players. I remember reading that when Roy Williams broke his ankle he made some comment that they were friends off the field.

I dunno. I can't see Bill going for him but you never say never in football.

I know people think Oakland automatically because that seems to be where so many land but aren't they pretty loaded at WR? I can't seem them going for him.

I think he's burned his bridges in Philly for good.

I'll take the Falcons fan post as truth and say ok their owner wouldn't want him.

Hadn't thought about Mr. Snyder. That is a thought. And he's one for making a big splash.

What about Baltimore? Has he burned those bridges also?

Here is an idea. TO goes to Minnesota. When Moss was in Minnesota, he drew double teams away from the other WRs. without Moss, the wrs are shown to be what they are:average. Put TO in purple with a healthy Culpy and you have an instant contender in the NFC north and a possible WC contender.

Obviously someone will take a chance on TO next year, just glad that the Texans have zero interest on the guy. Did anyone else catch the piece on AM 610 last night with Matt Jackson talking to Texans owner Bob McNair on whether the Texans would be interested in TO. It was great. The first thing McNair stated was Why would you wish something like that on me. He went on to say how the organization does not need a person so disruptive that they would act in the manner that TO did with McNabb and the entire organization. TO wanted something better than his 7 year - $49 million dollar contract, now will be luck to get more than 2 years.

The funny thing about all this to me is just this past February TO was the toast of Philly, everyone up there loved him and it took him only until June to turn most Philly fans against him. I was up in the Philly area from March through August so got to see the change in perception of TO firsthand. One day in July I was in Philly airport and this woman was wearing a TO jersey and folks in the airport started booing her. It was great, one of the funniest things I had ever seen.

This tells me that he is well aware of the job his management team has done and that we're in for some nice changes after this season. At least we can hope.

I doubt the Vikings would go for Owens. They just unloaded Moss for being a problem and Owens is twice as bad. Owens also likely won't want to go to the Bucs or Jets with their current QB issues. ESPN keeps saying Denver is among the top teams to get him, although I'm not sure how much substance there is to this claim. I personally want to see him go to the Raiders just to see the freak show of a passing game they'd have. It would piss Lamont Jordan off more, but Kerry Collins with Moss, Owens, and Porter could seriously threaten Marino's single-season records. I doubt Moss and Owens could get along though, not enough balls to throw to keep both of them happy, although Denver did have both McCaffrey and Smith put up 100 catches in the same season, so Oakland could be a repeat of that, and they are always looking to acquire more bad apples that no one wants. I doubt it will happen, but just a thought...

McNair:
During a break in preparations for Sunday's game at unbeaten Indianapolis, McNair was asked if he would consider signing Owens once Philadelphia has washed its hands of him.

"He's almost dismantled the Eagles; why would you wish that on us?" McNair said with a laugh. "I've already got enough problems."

I consider that nothing more than a 'tongue and cheek' quip in order to get the reporters to leave him alone, and at the same time, nip the subject at the bud. Don't try to read anymore into it.

Considering that the Raiders aren't even utilizing Moss like they should, why should they add Owens. He only has 26 catches in 7 games. He is on pace for one of the worst seasons in his career.

True, but he's been hurt and played sparingly while being hurt for a couple games, and teams are focusing in on him and Porter and the rest of the receiving group wasn't holding up their end, plus the defense can't stop anyone and get off the field so the offense has fewer opportunities. Teams wouldn't be able to concentrate on one of them with the other there and with Jerry Porter in as a third WR, and anytime you get into the redzone you have 6'4" and 6'3" WRs on opposite sides so you can just lob the ball up and let them get it, not to mention having the two best and most dynamic WRs in the game on the same team. Like I said I really doubt it would happen, but it would be interesting to see what the two of them can do together and with a QB that can throw the ball.

I would love T.O. in Houston. Could you imagine AJ on one side and TO on the other. One receiver who is big and strong and the other who knows how to get open even if he is trippled team.

That would also cut the arguments on whether Carr is a good QB. If you cant hit those two you dont deserve to play football.

Unless you only have a fraction of a second to throw the ball. TO's saga could only get funnier if he chewed out Wade, Pitts and McKinney on ESPN.

Usually what happens right after someone says, "Well, it can't get any worse," is that it immediately gets worse. I would hate to see the Texans, or any other team for that matter, give TO another shot in the NFL. I'd rather that impressionable kids idolize people who do more than just catch footballs well. TO is a surreal talent, no doubt, but he's also a surreal *****. If there's any justice, he'd rot away for the rest of his career in the CFL.

But this team needs that. Noone ever brings up how TO would challenge his teammates on the sidelines to make a play because he is going to make a play. Noone ever brings up that he gives the team an attitude to play with and for. Until TO got to Philly the only reason any of those WRs would get open was because Mcnabb had to scramble around. After he got there Mcnabb became a better pocket passer and other receivers started catching the ball better. Alot of people blame the sacks on the line and David Carr but I've noticed several times none of these guys broke out of their routes and tried to make a play. TO could teach these guys how to do that.

The other thing is TO does help keep his team focused for 4 quarters. How many times have we seen our team blow 4th quarter leads.

Do I condone TO and his behavior. No! What I want to know is why noone on the team ever confronted him to his face. Mcnabb used the media just like TO did, except Mcnabb's talk was chicken. You think Gary Walker is going to stand for that dude to talk smack and act like that to people in our locker room. Heck, dude confront's David Carr THE TEAM FRANCHISE.

IMO, TO has become a huge distraction over the last couple of years. He is, IMMHO, the best WR in the league, but it appears that his attitude is so volatile, that only a no-nonsense, badder (if that can be considered a word) than Satan himself coach could handle him. His isn't a case for the faint at heart.
The best recivers in the league currently wear 89 and plays for carolina and the other wears 88 and plays for indy. He will be the one tossing the ball to the ref in the endzone on satruday aganist the texans.:challenge
