Okay, so numbers don't lie. Terrell Owens has been a dominant receiver in this league for 14 years. He has had 1,006 career receptions, 14,951 receiving yards, 144 career touchdowns. Hall of fame player? Sure! Legendary pain in the neck? Absolutely!
Team him up with Chad Ochocino and you have a recipe for one of the biggest disasters we have ever witnessed. What in the world are the Cincinnati Bengals thinking here? They now have two "diva" receivers who granted do practice and play hard, but in the end both talk a lot and deliver nothing but...well talk.
When is enough going to be enough with Owens? While virtually every team passed on him the Bengals actually view him as the final piece to make a legitimate Superbowl run. I can't possibly see how this will benefit Carson Palmer. As if already having one big mouth constantly in his ear to throw him the ball isn't enough now he has two.
This won't work because neither of these two receivers are winners, nor know how to be team players, but what it will do is provide a lot of headaches for the NFL front office and make them richer with fines.
Hey at least this will be entertaining for us to watch what these two will come up with next. We also know that Darrelle Revis will only be able to shut one down on Thanksgiving night this year. Maybe Chad can actually honor a bet that he lost.....TWICE!
