Terrell Owens is a remarkable physical specimen and a marvelous athlete. So why on earth does he suck so much as a person? It’s as if the creator said, “I’ll give you talent and skills but you’re on your own for the brains and personality.” As certain as winter follows fall, Terrell will complain about his current team. You’d think we’d be used to it by now, you’d think the media would stop reporting it. Particularly since his current team, the Cincinnati Bengals are so far out of the playoff picture you have to squint to see them.
Here’s his latest whiny rant:
“I think there’s underachieving from the top down,” Owens said. “You start with the owner, you start with the coaches. And obviously we as players, we are a product of what the coaches are coaching us throughout the course of the week. Of course, we have to go out there and play the game. But in order for us to do what we’re allowed to do at the best of our abilities, the coaches have to put the players in the best position.”
Terrell, shut the hell up. Build a damn seat and sit in it. This schtick is getting old. Granted, Carson Palmer is a mere shadow of his former self and doesn’t seem to be able to guide the team. They look a lot more like the Bungles of old than the division champs of last year. But what gives Terrell the right to speak on it? Why does he think he has all the answers? Why does he feel that he should be the mouthpiece for all that is wrong on EVERY team he joins? Yet next season he’ll wonder why, with all his talent and gifts, he struggles to find a team to take a chance on him.
Every season we think he’s learned his lesson but we all know you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. Someone tell Mo and Kita to come get this dude and save him from himself…or from my tv. Unless he looks like this…
