Did we really just hear him say that? Jerry Rice, really Terrell, really?

"I know hands-down I'd be close to Jerry Rice's records if I had been with quality quarterbacks like he had," Owens told USA Today. "He had Joe Montana and he finished with Steve Young." seriously Terrell is clearly high on something! 

The man played with several decent QB's I mean he had the chance to play with Steve Young and Jerry Rice from 1996 to 1999 and then in 2000 Jeff Garcia took over and in 2003 he called Garcia a homosexual in an interview with Playboy. TOXIC to his first team!

Then he went to Philadelphia where he had a fair amount of success and then got greedy and wanted more money and again slammed another teammate in the press by saying "I am not the one that got tired in the Super Bowl" directed at McNabb of course. In addition to that he made a comment cause his recovery from his severely sprained ankle and fibula injury's was accelerated and he didn't get enough press saying " a player like Brett Farve would have been praised for such bravery". Seriously? He said he would hold out of camp if his contract wasn't renegotiated, but showed up on time and repeatedly made comments about McNabb and the teams management, until he was suspended  and then deactivated for the rest of the season! Again TOXIC!!!

Next stop on the T.O. train ride through the NFL, Dallas! More of the same, whiny, ungrateful, selfish Terrell Owens! More finger pointing at his QB and coaches, more of the Oh wait that's my punchline! But to keep with the theme of his previous stints with teams, TOXIC!!!!

And for the most recent stop of the train Buffalo for once not as TOXIC, but a lack luster performance from the guy that thinks he is THE top receiver in the league, his second worst full 16 game season, 829 yards, 55 receptions and only 5 touchdowns! 

Now stat wise,Terrell IS one of the top WR's in the game but his TOXIC personality has made him lose the appeal to sign him.

Which brings me to my punch line, and a little advice to Terrell Owens...


Shut your mouth, catch the football, and let you actions dictate your legacy.

The coaches have all been hired to do a job, your not the only player on the team, and not the only guy a QB has to throw to, know your roll go with it, have fun get paid and just play football, your rich enough for 10 people to live out the rest of their lives and then some, so finish out your career and let your performance speak for itself for once and see where that gets you!!!


Jerry Rice is, was and always will be the BEST ever, your not even on the same page of NFL history as him, he has his own chapter! You have a page titled "The Toxic Journey Of Terrell Owens" and its all your fault! Its not about what could have been its about what you have done and your negatives out weigh your positives at this point in your career!

Not that I think Terrell Owens will ever read this article so this is just one of my rants, and don't say I didn't warn you in my first article about my rants!!!
