    Terrell Owens not working out with Bills unless it's mandatory

    Note, that his new tiptoeing coach is already sounding like his last coach. Owen states that he has always kept in top shape with solo personal workouts.........and no one can really argue with T.O taking care of T.O.
    However, again, T.O is starting off isolating himself from the rest of the team.
    In doing so, he will again find himself ostracized by most of his peers and many of his coaches.................and, again, wondering "why?"

    T.O. has stated that all he needs is " a new beginning." Too bad, all that he is setting up to accomplish is "an familiar old ending."

    If you check his track record he has never been to an non mandatory offseason workout in years. The man is 36 years old he even told reporters when the mandatory stuff starts he will attend no questions asked. When you have played the game at such a high level for so long you dont really need it but it would be nice for him to go.

    I think everyone recognizes TO has always been physically been prepared. That isn't the point. He also has a track record for years of not being mentally prepared to commit to his team rather than to TO. This continues that track record.

    When given choices, he makes the wrong ones. The only way to make sure T.O. makes the right one is to make it mandatory. No questions asked??????????? And what would his alternative be?:thinking:

    I mean T.O. is in the right mental state... Sure ppl can hop on the bandwagon and say that he is a "team obliterator." - Skip Bayless.

    In all actuality, Its still March Trent Edwards or whoever is under center will have more then enough time to get their timing down. Lets see whats not to like about Owens other than his 38 tds in three years leads the league or his uncanny ability demand double teams every play, or maybe its his thousand yard seasons he churns out every year.

    Terrell Owens last two stops Philly and Dallas were both matches made in Heaven the first year both teams posted a 13-3 record so, you can say that he doesnt get it but he really does this guy is a proven winner, and so what if tell people that he wants the ball you show me a wideout that doesnt want the rock and he probably isnt in the NFL. Plain and simple Dallas last year was absolute garbage, and there QB play was average at best and that lead to decline in his numbers so dont say he is fallin off.

    No he isn't in the right mental state. He isn't AJ meeting extra with Schaub to develop a rapport with him. He isn't AJ not bad mouthing a QB who will not be named. He isn't AJ signing a contract extension with a team with no winning seasons.

    Guess who? 115 receptions for 1575 yards - but I guess you have to act like TO to want the rock.

    What's not to like about TO? This might take all day long. Do you really want to ask the question? Uuuum, how about bringing 3 teams down. And funny how you bring up all those TD's, but you also fail to realize that he TO has now played on each team with 3 Pro Bowl QB's. Mcnabb might be in the HOF after he retires as well. I think his QB's had a little something to do with that. No one would argue that he wasn't a great player, but it doesn't matter how good you are when you destroy the chemistry with your team mates. And last season guys weren't double teaming him at the end of the season. THey were jamming him at the line in the last few games and taking him out of plays. The guy is starting to get old.

    You obviously didn't watch that first season in Dallas. It wasn't a match made in heaven. As soon as the season started he was screaming and yelling at coaches and even had a shoving match with Todd Haley. Parcells hated him so badly that he wouldn't even talk to TO. TO also got into it with Bledsoe a few times as well before Romo became the QB. Once Romo came in, they got along, but that was because ROmo was new, and guess what TO eventually treated Romo like he does all of his QB's. It wouldn't matter if TO played with Joe Montana, Dan Marino, or Tom Brady, he'll always turn into a cancerish team mate and cause problems with other players on offense.

    A lot of people also forget that TO has also caused a lot of problems with his O line team mates as well. He beraded them all over the side lines this season and did the same in San Francisco.

    Romo is an average QB at best it WILL show this season. He was blessed to have T.O. to inflate his numbers. Every reciever gets frustrated when they just run routes all day and dont recieve the ball I dont know if you played football but i played RB/wr in HS and College and i can tell you that Running 9 routes all day and not getting the rock isn't fun. Regardlesss of how many times he messes up its really doesnt matter in the end because even if Buffalo lets him go someone else will scoop him up he's still a top 5 talent reciever in the league.

    Top 5 consensus AFC recievers:
    1. Moss
    2. AJ
    3. Marshall
    4. Owens
    5. Welker/Wayne in the 5 spot

    As much as you might not want to admit it NFL stars will always have to be catered to that's just life.

    Yes they do. I know that same feeling from playing football myself, but other WR's don't go to the media and start blasting away on their QB, they don't scream at them all over the sidelines, they don't berate their Offensive lineman and coaches as well. Sure a player here or there does one of those from time to time, but TO does it on a regular and to a much higher degree than anyone else.

    This will be TO's last stop bro. He's 36 now, and he wasn't able to get the same types of separation at the end of the season last year. He was still really good, but his old age is starting to show and I'm sure it will even more this season.

    Sorry, but TO is no longer a top 5 WR. I think you're forgetting to add Bolden, Steve Smith, Roddy White, and Calvin Johnson to that list before TO. All of those guys had much better seasons than TO did last year and while TO is getting older and slightly losing his abilities all these guys are getting better still and the only one out of those players that I mentioned that played with a better QB than TO did last season was Bolden who had Warner.

    ...........tolerated for just so long, as demonstrated by his migratory history.

    I really don't understand how anyone can even begin to defend TO. The guy got cut from a team that will take just about anyone regardless of crimes committed or past attitude problems (think Pacman, Tank, etc.) He's a cancer plain and simple.

    No doubt. TO's days as a top 5 and maybe even top 10 WR are over. And don't forget AJ, Greg Jennings, Larry Fitzgerald, and maybe a few others.

    No shit. It amazes me how people still defend this guy.



    Good call on Jennings. I forgot about him and he had a spectacular year in only his 3rd season. I didn't mention AJ and Fitz because he already had them on that top five list. :)

    Yep. Personally, I don't find these volutary meetings to be a big deal but based on his previous track record with San Fran, Philly, and Dallas, he might be ok for a year. But if Buffalo gives him an extension, the guy will do the same things he has done his entire career. Anyone who thinks otherwise is delusional.

    I would rather have a player on my team who isn't as good as T.O. one that wants to at least have a good relationship with the QB and the rest of the team because that is what makes winners. T.O. has never won anything nor will he ever win anything in the NFL now that his playing career is almost over mainly because of his attitude and the way that he has treated every team that he has been on. He is a head case and that is all he has ever been was and ever will be. What has he done off the field? Nothing but cause BS in the lockeroom that is all period. I am so glad that he probably won't ever get an SB ring he should not have one. You never know but chances are slim. /End rant.

    Many will likely say I am crazy but I would even rather have Kevin Walter over TO.

    He's is such demand that there is no wonder that T.O. has ended up on a team as well-respected as the Bills.
