    Too bad, so sad, and for heaven's sake, may the Titans keep their eyes off him. They've got enough problems with Pacman Jones.

      Gone, but never forgotten on every TV and radio "sports" show.

      Go away. Just go away!
      No weather forecasts are ever guaranteed, even if confidence level is high. Even a 99% probability will miss 1% of the time. That's the best anybody can do when predicting highly complex events.

        It appears he will for the rest of the season, but he'll be back next season getting paid multi-millions for somebody. He's just too good not to be, and there will be another team that will believe they can keep him in line.

          Maybe not...I think more than one professional team is looking at the success of the Patriots and the Spurs...in general, they've done it without idiots...I suspect other teams think they can too...

              Some no doubt, but not all. Somebody always thinks they can be the team that brings a guy like Owens under control.

              If Owens were merely an above average WR, I'd agree he was done, but his talent is breathtaking and he plays extremely hard on the field, so I'd be shocked if one of the 32 teams doesn't take a shot at him in 2006. He'll likely get a contract heavy on incentives, with a specifically defined character clause.

                TO is very good but his Rodman-like tactics have gotten him mentioned among the ranks of Harrison, Holt & Moss.

                He ain't that good.

                  And his numbers, which over the last 2 1/2 seasons are as good as those 3 receivers.

                  The guy has 100+ TD's. He's a hall of fame talent.

                    Numbers are great for fantasy geeks.

                      San Fran only found two teams interested in 2004 -- Baltimore and Philadelphia. TO fought to NOT go to Baltimore. Who do you think is going to creep out of the woodwork now?

                      I can see someone offering a 1 year low-salary, high-incentive contract for 2006, but I can't see Owens actually accepting it.

                        .
                        This time, nobody has going to have to trade for him. Philly will release or waive Owens, so any suitor won't have to give up anything in return this time, or pick up a contract. He did end up fetching a 2nd rounder from Baltimore in the very difficult to trade NFL. By contrast, future Hall of Famer Marshall Faulk in his prime could only garner a 4th round pick.

                        I agree with TD that Owens is a cancer, he will wear out his welcome anywhere. But Philly's offense (by a lot) and their overall success was better with Owens than without, while is old team went right to the crapper (with many other factors at play).

                        Somebody's going to take a chance on him, and if he's in the financial position many NFL players are, he'll bite eventually, even with a hard-line character clause.

                          My guess is the Arizona Cardinals because Dennis Green kept Randy Moss in check when he was coaching Minnesota. I hate to inform Denny but it was Cris Carter that kept Moss in check!
                          But that's just my opinion!

                              A good comparison on ESPN to a pair of far less talented receivers, Keyshawn Johnson and Joey Galloway.
