Now, let's just all wait for TO's Sunday Conversation. This is where he spills his guts about everything that is wrong with the Cowboys, Ed Werder, Jerrah, and Romo. Damnit, I can't wait.

Terrell Owens will be in San Diego or the New York Giants.

Tampa Bay Bucs. They have a lot of cap space.

Earnest Graham & Derrick Ward at RB

Clayton and T.O. at WR

All they need is Jay Cutler who is ready to get out, or figure out something else at QB.

Few teams would make the room for him. Tampa Bay has the space, right?

Because they are not the type of organization that would sign him. Plax has done some idiotic things off of the field however is not the type of guy to cause chaos in the locker room (calling out the QB, other players, backstabbing the team to the media, etc). Plax will probably be back with the Giants next season barring legalities.

Whomever signs TO is going to be either really stupid or desperate.

"The Dallas Cowboys released wide receiver Terrell Owens on Wednesday night according to a source.

Owens was informed of the decision by team officials, who said the team had decided to go in a different direction.

Over the last few weeks, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was asked about the status of Owens by reporters.

Jones refused to say whether Owens would get cut but hinted two weeks ago he might keep the receiver.

Multiple sources said team officials were talking about releasing Owens for the last several days but as of Wednesday afternoon no final decision was made.

The Cowboys will take roughly a $9 million cap hit with the release of Owens.

Owens did not return a call seeking comment, nor did his agent Drew Rosenhaus. "

I think this is a possibility. I am pretty sure he knew the Cowboys were going to be his last big payday so i won't expect a BIG contract from anyone. One or two year deal.

Then we can have T.O. running it up on Dallas, and Fat Albert sitting on Tony Romo's face twice a year for a couple of years.

Parcells and TO weren't either.

Only reason I said it looks like a possibility is Tampa could use a big play WR and has room.

If Al Davis isn't going to resign Porter little chance they sign TO. Seattle just signed Housh. No way San Fran takes him back. Minnesota could use the help but Childress has dealt with TO once and I think that was once too many for him. Ravens could use the help but I think they know that could backfire on the development of Flacco.

If he went on the cheap maybe Jets or Washington.

Of course my favorite idea is public groveling to Andy Reid and Donovan McNabb to go back to Philly.

Oh wait, I've a call from Drew.....the Giants/Raiders are wanting to give me tons of money? Man, that Romo was one crap QB, he couldn't even ht TO, I mean man, I was a better receiver when I overdosed than Witten will ever be.

And the TO story continues...

This is the first place I was thinking Chris.

Don't put it past Snyder to move some pieces around to sign TO. I could totally see him doing it. The Skins are in desperate need of a play making WR any way. TO is totally the type of player that Snyder would take a shot at.

Smartest move the Cowboys have made in about 5 years. Addition by subtraction. I almost wish he would stay there one more year just to cause more destruction, but seeing TO get cut and embarrassed again, is always priceless. I'm sure he'll cry on tv again and act like no one understands him again like he did when he was whining in Philly.

Well over here in Austin (1300 The Zone), they were saying that the only team that would have enough cajones to take him on would be The Patriots. They cited that they've done alot with players like Randy Moss, and Corey Dillon etc... because of their ability to show people the door if they aren't putting the team first.

Then they went into how dangerous that team would be if it actually worked.

Now if he did go to NE, then ESPN would be say that the P stands for Patriots.

The more I think about it yo know what team could use him the most? The Jags. They haven't had a decent WR since Smith left the team, and TO and Jones would be a pretty deadly duo in the red zone. I would rather see TO rot in Oakland personally, but realistically I don't think it would be a bad idea if the Jags signed him to a one year deal and tried to make it work.

This guy has nowehere to go.

Seriously, what team would want him?

He's burned through THREE quality teams: 49ers, Eagles & Cowboys.

Even Randy Moss "got the big picture" at some point.

The guy might not play this year. Only a desparate edge-of-the-playoff contender would sign him, and it would be right before the deadline, well into the season just as an added weapon for the playoffs. You wouldn't want T.O. on your team the whole year.

I suspect he will become The King of One-Year Contracts. A different team every year, like some hired gun out of a Wild West dimestore novel.

All of his drama, and his cute little things he would say and do in the media, has boiled down to him getting cut and likely not even having any interest from teams at all. And he probably STILL won't get the hint that he has big personality issues that are costing him, possibly even costing him HOF status.

What a sad and unfortunate story this guy's life has been. He was raised by his grandmother, and when he was a teenager he wanted to date this girl who lived across the street from him that he had seen for several years each day as they crossed paths. His grandmother told him he couldn't date her. he asked why. She said "Because she's your sister. Your daddy lives in that house across the street with her." I mean, seriously: His dad had been living across the street for years and nobody told T.O....nobody.

So, keep that bit of emotional and psychological scarring in the back of your brain when you make knocks on the guy. I am not "excusing" what he does, but I am saying that it is "understandable" considering that sort of trauma. it's well-documented that experiencing extreme emotional and psychological trauma as a child can actually STOP a kid from progressing & growing (emotionally and mentally). They stay frozen, in essence, in that time and place. We all have our baggage fromt he past. Learning that your dad willfully lives across the street and yet has not one thing to do with you? Roll that around in your head for awhile.

Not buying any of this GP. I have heard tons of horror stories from NFL athletes since I was a kid. TO is one of many athletes that have had bad memories as a child. None of that excuses all of the garbage he has done. He is a grown man and has gone out of his way to hurt a lot of other team mates and to embarrass them in every way that he could. He has done it with coaches as well. He calculates his moves and ways of getting to people and to the media. The guy doesn't get one single ounce of sympathy from me. He is a pathetic slime ball that that cares about no one but himself.

I think Terrell is probably misguided...probably is too honest at times...with his own viewpoints whether they be right or wrong.


He's not afraid to say what he thinks...as I said whether it be right or wrong...and he rubs people the wrong way when it's really not necessary.

He's just a very complex, complicated man.

Are the Cowboys waiting for a trade offer?

It’s a known fact that the Dallas Cowboys tried to trade safety Roy Williams before cutting him, calling multiple teams and getting no interest.

This time around, could it be that the Cowboys have delayed announcing the decision to cut the player in order to try to finagle a trade market?

By waiting to announce the move, the Cowboys might be hoping that a team that would like to acquire his services will call up and make an offer.

Though he’s going to be released in any event, in some cases a team will make a trade in order to get the contract. With Owens owed only $5.77 million in compensation this year (which is roughly half the amount of the franchise tender at the receiver position) maybe someone would offer a draft pick in order to secure T.O. without having to write a big bonus check.

And although we’re listing the various teams who have said, on the record or otherwise, that they’re not interested in Owens, we’ve been saying for years that 31 teams can say no — and that it only takes one to say yes.

In the case of conjuring a trade market, it only takes two to say maybe.

So who might actually be interested? Some readers have suggested that Chiefs G.M. Scott Pioli could give Owens the same “one-strike” arrangement that Randy Moss received in New England two years ago. The only problem? Todd Haley is the head coach, and like so many other coaches throughout the league Haley has a history with Owens that would prompt Haley to prefer pounding nails with his foreheard to having Owens on the team.

The Broncos make some sense, if Brandon Marshall ends up missing a big chunk of the year as a result of his most recent arrest.

The Raiders will continue to loom as a possibility until owner Al Davis says otherwise.

The Jets continue to intrigue us, given the need to replace Laveranues Coles — and the importance of selling popcorn and PSLs.

The Colts have one of the only quarterbacks who would tell T.O. to shut the f–k up when he whines for the ball.

The Pats would make sense for the guy who likes to wear No. 81, but only if there already wasn’t a pretty good receiver there who wears that jersey.

The Bucs could be in play, if/when they get a quarterback whom Owens deems worthy of dropping his passes.

Speaking of dropped passes, the Jaguars are always looking for a few capable receivers.

Oh no you didn't! You're wrong Colonel Sanders, mama says Crabtree is going to be the man in the NFL - you just wait and see.

I thought the exact same thing when I saw this story about the cowgirls moving up to get him. Unlike you I think he was a great college receiver and will be an awesome NFL receiver. Only time will tell about my red raider - Wes Welker turned out alright.

GP
03-05-2009, 03:30 PM
Not buying any of this GP. I have heard tons of horror stories from NFL athletes since I was a kid. TO is one of many athletes that have had bad memories as a child. None of that excuses all of the garbage he has done. He is a grown man and has gone out of his way to hurt a lot of other team mates and to embarrass them in every way that he could. He has done it with coaches as well. He calculates his moves and ways of getting to people and to the media. The guy doesn't get one single ounce of sympathy from me. He is a pathetic slime ball that that cares about no one but himself.

I think I specifically said "It's not EXCUSABLE but it is UNDERSTANDABLE."

Based on what I've read, he distrusts everybody. And it's easy to see why. He doesn't need anybody's sympathy. But you might reserve your anger for the grown man who did what he did to Terrell. T.O. didn't have a choice in the hand he got dealt, and sometimes I think our upbringing has a lot to do with who we are as adults. He's not "over" his early-life troubles because he completely kills any positive relationship he has.

Should we use our shortcomings as a crutch? Nope.

But it sure helps a person see why others will do what they do. His behavior is not compatible with the inherent make-up of a team sport. He'd be a great individual sport athlete. Anywhere where others have to depend on him being rational and stable, is going to be disappointed. He's on a mission to make sure HE destroys others before they destroy him.

This is not an attempt to excuse what he's doing. I wouldn't go within 200 miles of the guy, nor would I even venture to strike up a relationship with the guy. I'm just saying that the guy is jacked up. Gifted, but very jacked up. Appears to turn things around for a short spell, but then messes it all up.

I guess I'm at a stage where I can genuinely say that I wish the guy all the happiness in the world. Because he's not finding it up to this point. I thank God I had average, normal, every-day parents--who had flaws--but who were still there for me.

I think a lot of this was set in motion back when he made the "joke" about Jessica. Before then, it appeared that he and Romo were pretty cool. I also looked at the Williams deal, Romo shying from his appearances at Benefit for Kids that TO hosts annually, yes I know there were injuries, but 15 minutes to pop in, didn't buy it, as handwriting on the wall. Finally the locker room confrontation was probably the straw that broke the camels back.

I also doubt the cut came as a surprise to TO even though he appeared that he was going through life as usual. If three quarters of the football world believed that he would be cut, he doesn't strike me as being that far out in la la land to not be working on his Plan B.

This guy has nowehere to go.

Seriously, what team would want him?

He's burned through THREE quality teams: 49ers, Eagles & Cowboys.

Even Randy Moss "got the big picture" at some point.

The guy might not play this year. Only a desparate edge-of-the-playoff contender would sign him, and it would be right before the deadline, well into the season just as an added weapon for the playoffs. You wouldn't want T.O. on your team the whole year.

I suspect he will become The King of One-Year Contracts. A different team every year, like some hired gun out of a Wild West dimestore novel.

All of his drama, and his cute little things he would say and do in the media, has boiled down to him getting cut and likely not even having any interest from teams at all. And he probably STILL won't get the hint that he has big personality issues that are costing him, possibly even costing him HOF status.

What a sad and unfortunate story this guy's life has been. He was raised by his grandmother, and when he was a teenager he wanted to date this girl who lived across the street from him that he had seen for several years each day as they crossed paths. His grandmother told him he couldn't date her. he asked why. She said "Because she's your sister. Your daddy lives in that house across the street with her." I mean, seriously: His dad had been living across the street for years and nobody told T.O....nobody.

So, keep that bit of emotional and psychological scarring in the back of your brain when you make knocks on the guy. I am not "excusing" what he does, but I am saying that it is "understandable" considering that sort of trauma. it's well-documented that experiencing extreme emotional and psychological trauma as a child can actually STOP a kid from progressing & growing (emotionally and mentally). They stay frozen, in essence, in that time and place. We all have our baggage fromt he past. Learning that your dad willfully lives across the street and yet has not one thing to do with you? Roll that around in your head for awhile.


Fine. I shed a tear for T.O. and his tortured past.

It makes no difference in the big picture. I still don't sign him to a contract. I still don't want him on my team tearing my locker room up and turning all of my players against one another.

All it means is that instead of saying "What an asshat he is, to hell with him" I say "You should really get some help and I hope things turn out well for you when you do". Then I say "No, I'm sorry I don't want you on my football team." and keep on walking.

Tony doesn't like the guy. Why would he? TO did to him what he has done to every other QB. Only this time he tried to turn other WR's against TOny and those naive fools on the team actually bought into it. Witten and TO even had to be seperated because of all the termoil that TO was causing and I guarantee you that Witten was probably sticking up for Romo as well. I highly doubt that Romo likes TO at all.

If you're a coach that brings him in, you have to be ok with him screaming in your face on the sidelines several times a year. You've got to be ok with him doing the same with your quarterback and your offensive coordinator. You've got to be ok with answering endless questions about whether T.O. is getting his touches and whether he's happy or not. Is he really that good that it's worth dealing with that all year?

No, you don't. What you have to do take care of the situation whether it's through fines or not starting him or having him sit. If it works out, great. If not, there are ways to screw with a player to make him understand what won't be tolerated.

There are steps you can take and one of them is definitely not to just stand there and take it with no repercussions to be handed out.

I don't think ANY team should sign him to a contract.

He's clearly showing that he doesn't know how to co-exist with teammates. Whatever temporary gain he brings a team, it eventually turns into a long-term liability for that team.

One of the ESPN commentators said it best: Just when it looks like he turns things around, just when times get good, he goes and screws it up. I think it was Tom Jackson who said that.

He doesn't know how to relax and just let things go. It's like someone else inside him takes over and won't allow harmony within the organization. Almost a fear of success or something.

No team should sign him. He needs to find an outlet for his energy that won't involve other people in his lifestyle of relational destruction. Just my .02

I don't want him in football much less in the AFC South but if he had to come to this division I can't think of a team I'd rather watch him tear to pieces than the one Nashville.

Then Turd will start crying about how much better they'd be if the coaches would just "unleash Vince". Of course Vince is going to latch on to that and who knows, maybe even Bud will get involved and order his prized Longhorn onto the field. Hilarity ensues.

I think the Titans were a flash-in-the-pan last year. Outside of their running game, they offer no threat to a defense. They've lost Haynesworth whom I think might have been the overall "force" on their defense.

Totally agreed. Why would anyone want him there to make their offense a whole lot better? How silly. He may tear their team apart but he won't do in his first season. He won't get a long contract, so he'll know just about as far as he can push it. Of course he'll implode eventually, but we're not near a good enough team to be acting cocky where we want teams getting HOF calibur WR's that can still play. No way do I want him on the Titans.

I personally don't think you can have a good "team" without good chemistry. More talent doesn't mean better team or more wins. I think he would make them a worse team despite making them more talented. However how much talent TO still has is debatable. I saw him dropping a lot of balls last season. Of course with Collins or VY throwing to him he won't have many chances to drop balls.

Does he? Remember the Browns game where Braylon Edwards dropped a lot of crucial passes that could have won them the game? TO is right behind him in catches. Part of the reason he was cut is his unreliable hands. You can say Edwards had an off year, but TO's hands have been getting worse with time. He's not the same guy he was in Philly or even his first year in Dallas.

Oh dear God, I hope we don't turn out like the Bills. They've been 8-8 for a long time.

However, the big difference between us and them is that we don't put out the same team every year. This is the most radical thing the Bills have done since they decided to make the Buffalo on their helmet have a stripe.

One thing keeps coming to mind for me...

The Moulds Thread (http://www.texanstalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=20305&page=41)

The Texans have come such a long way as a franchise. 3 years ago, when Kubiak first came on board, a trade for Eric Moulds with Buffalo for a 5th rounder garnered 2015 posts. Two thousand and fifteen posts.

Now, we have so much depth at the WR position, not a single poster suggested we bring in T.O.

Good times.

I think it is because none of the better teams came calling. I would like to see what the numbers are. I have a feeling that his agent told him to take the one year deal and keep his mouth shut. Prove that he can catch a ball again and then next year go for the big money elsewhere.

Wow, just wow. I really did not think that he'd be ending up in Buffalo. Its really quite funny...he'll be even less productive than last year, and have no one to moan at.

This is my spin on things. TO gets double teamed, Edwards see this, looks at a Lee Evans who is one on one, hits him, time and time again, Evans hits a 1,400 yard receiving season, TO moans his face off, and the circle is complete, free agency again next year.

Jerry Rice averaged nearly 8 TD's and 1000 yards a season from age 36-40. I think that's pretty much pro-bowl numbers. But then again, you are talking about the best reciever of all time and a top five player at any position ever. But T.O. is only 36. I think T.O. has a couple of good seasons left.

Seems to me that this immediately puts three people on the hot seat in Dallas... Jason Garrett, Tony Romo, and Roy Williams. There's no T.O. to blame offensive mishaps on now. It's put-up-or-shut-up time for the Cowboy offense.

I absolutely agree with this. The manner and degree to which the average fan has eaten up the sports media's conventional wisdom about Terrell Owens is a testament to the value of imitation. Say what you will about Owens, there's no disputing the man's talents. He is a top-15 WR. He can still play. Sure, he's a headcase but I think he was well-behaved in Dallas and became the pinata for no other reason than his reputation. Romo and that offense is going to struggle without him.

Totally disagree. He earned that reputation by being the way he is.

He'll be remembered for being a troublemaker as much as anything he does on the field. Obviously when he's done he'll go down as one of the greatest at his position of all times. But people will always remember that he was a total headcase. And that's more than reputation. That's just fact.

He is to blame for what happened in Philadelphia, but not Dallas. Jerry Jones is to blame for hiring a lackey coach and grasping for star names to pair with the star on the helmet, eschewing team chemistry in the process.

Well, I thought he was doing OK, until he gathered up a group of the receivers and went to Jason Garrett to complain that Romo and Witten were conspiring against the receivers to take receptions away from the wideouts. That Romo and Witten were changing plays so that Witten would get the ball.

That was a big controversy up here in Dallas.

From what the local Dallas guys were saying, TO was probably the strongest leader in the locker room and the problem was that he was leading people the wrong way. There was a rift between the Romo/Witten camp and the TO camp.

Talk about kicking some fans when they're down. The only good thing about all of this is that he'll blow up before the end of the year in a place like Buffalo and so their time with him will be short.

He is not a natural leader who will routinely defer to others for the good of the team, but the Cowboys knew that going in. They didn't have the right structure in place to make it work.

It must be a weird day when you and I are agreeing Frog. Especially when it comes to the Cowboys. Lol!

You're exactly right on this. How anyone could spin TO's actions over the years is incredible. He completely brought down the Cowboys this season. Sure there was other problems, but he was trying to turn other playerse against each other and successfully doing it. His own team mates said that he was unapproachable and many figured that TO would try and fight them if they said certain things to him or criticized his actions in any way. That is totally being a team cancer. It isn't easy for any QB to play at a high level when you know in your head that your main WR is chatting to other WR's and constantly nagging at you the way TO does.

And yeah you're right and many people forget about all of the weapons that the Cowboys have outside of TO. Witten is a 1,000 yard WR at the TE position. Barber is good all over the field and in the passing game and now Felix Jones is going to start going nuts as the starter. I don't think Roy Williams will ever be the WR that people think he will, but between him Miles Austin, Crayton, and Hurd the Cowboys don't have a bad WR core at all. They've still got a pretty a good one and now everyone can concentrate and focus without the cancer of TO trying to corrupt everyone and put extra pressure on the situation. The Cowboys just did the most important thing they needed to do to get their team back on track.

I thought Romo dropped the field goal snap against Seattle. I also thought Romo was the one that went on vacation prior to his playoff game against the NY Giants in which he threw some costly INTs and the Dallas D didn't tackle Amani Toomer. Better yet, I thought the Dallas D was pretty good at tackling but couldn't tackle a Baltimore RB, not once but twice. How could TO do this to The Cowboys?

I didn't know it was TO.

McCalin was on the radio this morning and he said that he had talked with N.D. Kalu about his time with TO in Philly.

N.D basically said that when TO first arrived he was very charismatic, he worked extremely hard and all of the guys liked him. Then he said once he gained their trust he'd start making little comments about how certain players couldn't do certain things, or how their abilities were diminishing...ect...

I don't think TO tries to wreck teams or goes into situations trying to sabatoge players, but he obviously hasn't figured how not to.

Okay, I'll give you that. Don't forget that Romo was the QB that got them there though that season. Bledsoe wasn't playing well at all for them and when Romo came in the offense instanty got better and that was when TO really started to go off that season because he had a slow start.

I also thought Romo was the one that went on vacation prior to his playoff game against the NY Giants in which he threw some costly INTs and the Dallas D didn't tackle Amani Toomer.

So what. Players go on vacations all of the time like he did when there is a lay off like that. The media just needed a story to create, so they used that garbage because Simpson was involved. Funny how until this day the media brings that up and still doesn't ever bring up how Witten was on that same vacation and most people who reference it aren't even aware of that. What would you rather have Romo doing, hanging out all over Dallas and getting the typical distractions of the city or go to a quiet vacation where he can relax for a few days and get away from the other distractions and get his mind right for the next game since they had a bye? I don't see why going to Mexico would have been a distraction at all. And again, it wasn't just Romo there, it was him and Witten. The fact that the media left Witten out of all this is only further proof that they knew it was a BS story, but wanted to make it juicy and make it just about Romo and Jessica. So lame, and typical of the garbage media that we have.

Where were you that entire weak leading up to that game where there were multiple team mates who spoke out against TO's presence in the locker room and mentioned how he was trying to turn players against one another causing internal conflict? Obviously you didn't hear about him and Witten having to be separated before the game in the locker room because of it. Did you not watch one Cowboys game this season, and see TO berading team mates all over the sidelines like he was their coach or something? Gee, I don't ever see Andre Johnson doing that to other Texans players. Oh, and I also take it that you missed TO publically criticizing his coordinator Garrett on tv who was the same coordinator that just last season TO acted like was a magician at calling plays, but yet this year he throws him under the bus just like he has with all of his offensive coaches.

Geez, I could go on and on with all of the stuff he pulled all season. Hilarious how his supporters will always deny his dispicable actions towards his team mates and coaches.

Seriously If anyone else gives this bum another shot, they deserve what happens to them once his parasitic tentacles take hold of their locker room.

There was a point in his career when it didn't make sense to part ways with the guy under any circumstances; At age 36, 3 teams & 4 coaches later, it seems that his play on the field is always being overshadowed by his locker room / off the field antics. I understand where Jauron is coming from (trying to save his job etc.) but u never want that as a coach.

I feel for Trent Edwards. i wonder what the spectrum of emotions were like when he found out TO was coming to town.....:jumpbanan.....:thinking:...:crying:

This was T.O. then..............his colors haven't changed........except those of his uniforms.

T.O. reminds me of a quote, "It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt." Hopefully, he can get his act together and use his talents instead of wasting them.

This is one Buffalo News sports writer attempt to make an analogy of the Bills being the patron at a restaurant choking on a steak and being offered T.O. to apply the Heimlich maneuver.......or die. First of all, the Bills are already dead, and for whatever it good it would do, the Heimlich could have been substituted for a bite of a nice peanut butter sandwich. Nevertheless, if T.O. were to offer his "talent," he would have to first figure out how he could apply his skill without messing up his $5,000 designer suit.
