Default TO's new dance

I know the guy is a little of the wack, but you've got to enjoy his celebrations. They're pretty funny. Of all the celebrations until now, this is the best one ever. I think he did a better job than Ray Lewis. What do you guys think?

I thought it was great. I just started craking up when I saw it. Scores TD and then does what Lewis does in the pregame intros...

Owens was a little too graceful.


Ray Ray looks like he is having a stroke. Owens looked like he was at Juilliard.

BOTH .... but if i had to chose just one it would be Ray Lewis , T.O doesnt get into cr@p off the field and i think Ray is a little over rated , ever since Sharper left the Ravens their D isnt as good......who was it that lead the NFL in tackles last year nope it wasnt Ray Lewis

I really think Owens has bad "look at me!" disease...I think the guy is incredibly talented but how stupid are you if you make fun of Ray Lewis?

And that's what he was doing. Making fun.

I personally think he's very immature with all his gay talk about Garcia, his dances, etc.

That's a very nice way of putting it. Who's the one that wears tights in practice and picks up pompoms?

Look at Zach Thomas, he already has 83 tackles and he hasn't even played this week yet. He could be pushing 200 tackles by the end of the year.

Nope. I don't have to love them, like them or think they are funny. It's never funny when a professional athlete shows up another. And I absolutely don't like Ray Lewis but I respect the way he plays. He plays hard.

What if Owens grabbed a Texan cheerleader's pom poms and did that on the logo in the middle of the field after he scored a TD? Funny then?

The man is an enormous talent. It's too bad he spoils it with all the other stuff. I have much more respect for players that play hard and respect their opponents enough not to do the silly stuff Owens does.

It's all about EGO...the man craves the spotlight, must have it and is willing to act like a jerk to have it. JMO.

See now I'm just the opposite of that. If Owens would just play the game and shut the heck up I'd think highly of him. Instead I think he's just another self promoting jerk trying to get as much attention as he can. The people covering the NFL play right to that. If they just ignored his dumb antics he'd have no audience other than the one watching his great play which is, honestly, the only thing he does with any merit anyway.

I am agreeing with you Vinny, LB's on bad teams will always be tops in tackles, they just get more opportunities.

I think T.O.'s dance was at least 'earned'...he DID score the TD.

The me-first mentality wasn't born by T.O., he's just made it more easy to spot. I'd like to see guys make the big hit, make the big tackle, score the big touchdown and then just flip the ball to the ref, and leave the celebrating to the fans in the stands.

Unfortunately, the celebrations are going to only get worse from college through the pros. The TV coverage and showboat stuff that gets you on ESPN, also tends to make you more $$$ in the NFL and these kids all know it from the time they first take the field in the NCAA.

Don't forget that Owens has repeatedly made comments regarding Jeff Garcia being "gay".

To which Garcia replied that he wished he'd quit, he didn't understand it because they left the Niners on good terms or so he thought. Owens comment was well reporters asked. A simple "no comment" would have done. I don't think too many fans around the country care if they like each other. But he has to be a jerk and imply the man is gay and it was said to demean him.

Like I said if they ever come to Reliant and he does something on the logo or makes fun of one of the Texans people around here will feel differently. It may never happen but he's the one player in the league that would do it.

And that speaks volumes about him.

I think TO is great. He is an incredible athlete and he is entertaining. I think he looked better doing the ray dance then ray has ever looked. He always has something new, sucks they are going to fine him most of the time just for having a little bit of fun.

I liked TO's dance, but I would've liked it better if Ray Lewis came and cleaned his clock in the endzone halfway through the dance. It would've been a classic moment, but he said he didn't see it. Perhaps he did the smart thing and avoided getting a fine or suspension, but it would've been well worth it to see TO after Ray Ray clocked him.

I was at the Eagles game yesterday. If Lewis didn't see it, he was the only one in the place that missed it. It was up on the big screen. I saw Sanders laugh so hard at TO's dance he almost fell down. Lewis had a lot of chances to "get TO" if he wanted. I counted at least four times when Owens went over the middle during the game. Nothing happened. Too bad nobody put up vid of the hit on Sanders on a punt return where Sanders was knocked airborne head over heals. As far as Owens goes, I personally don't like some of the things about his rep. Selfish, whatever. The more I watch him, the more impressed I am. In camp, Owens would talk to the fans while waiting to go through his drills. On the field during yesterday's game, Owens was all business from the time he comes out for warm-up until the game is over. He didn't take one play off when he was on the field during yesterday's game. I made a point of watching him when he was not in the play. He runs like he is getting the ball when it nowhere near him. Can't say the same about alot of other players in the NFL. He ran right over McAilster on one play when the pass when the Chad Lewis. To be honest, I didn't want him before the season. I was wrong. He can talk all he wants. It takes the other teams thinking away from McNabb, Westbrook, Lewis and the other WRs. If you can get someone on the other team thinking just for a second about something TO said or did and try for pay back instead of thinking about the game, you get beat. Might be a something to all this madness that is overlooked? Only TO knows for sure.

Exactly, crazy or stupid, you make the call. Ray Ray called him a coward, hope we don't see another murder go down by Ray Ray's crew...

T.O is all business on the field . If he's such a "coward " why did he mock Ray Ray RIGHT IN FRONT OF HIM ..... dont see anything cowardly about that . Didnt see him ducking outa the way when he went across the middle either ...... Ray you are a Fruad.

I dont particularly care for either of their antics . They are both good players , although i do believe Ray Lewis is a bit over rated , sure the Ravens D is Good but its not just Ray , there are 10 other guy's on the field that make him look good .... he's just the "mouth" of the group therefore gets the attention.
I for one dont watch the NFL to see T.O. pull out a sharpie and sign a ball or Joe Horn and his cell phone act nor any of the other garbage they do . I want to see the best players on earth play football , smashmouth football . Kinda miss the days of the ond Oiler / Steeler rivalry . Didnt see much of this cr@p back then accept maybe Billy White Shoes Johnson and his crazy legs dance .(d@mn i hate Bud) . The players respected each other , the FANS and the game . Would be nice if they would just STFU and play.
