Rick and Anthony, He can be cocky because his game can back it up.


In 13 games, Terrell Owens scored 13 touchdowns.

He led the league in Touchdowns. And he didn't even play every game of the season.

He was also around 4th or 5th in receiving yards.
If he would have played all 16 games, he would have had a good chance to come in second or third in receiving yards.

To me, TD catches are overrated. All the QB need to do is throw it to them when they are at the 5. Easy pro-bowl.

They should add "drops" as a new stat. If a QB can get rip for interceptions, why can't a WR get rip for drops?

Whether Owens can "back it up" or not isn't even the issue; what is the issue is that his self-centered, juvenile behavior fosters resentment among opponents and leads to his team getting beaten in future games they otherwise would have won; therefore his actions show a lack of consideration not only for the opponent he shows up, but for his own teammates as well.

Again Anthony, well said...

Terrel makes the sport look like a circus. Taunting fans, signing footballs. He's not a team player, he gives his coaches grey hairs by not showing up to mini camps in the offseason. He pretends hes the best. He can talk the talk but when it comes to being the best thats all he can do.

Rick, signing footballs is a bad thing?

And he thinks he is the best......

maybe, because he is the best.

He brings excitement.

He taunts fans. What is wrong with that?

And you score why not celebrate to the fullest extent?

It gets the players and fans pumped up.

FOOTBALL IS AN ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY.

And, He entertains.

What is wrong with that?

And how would you like it if someone on the other team did that to you when they score?

It also gets the opposing players pumped up, and very often ends up costing your team an important game - just like the one in Dallas the year after Owens' antics.

And the "entertainers" are adults, who should act accordingly.

Anthony, so what are you supposed to when you score?

Stand there and pretend like it doesn't mean any thing?

If Terrell was on the other team and did that, I would want to drill him.

But, That is what's so good about celebrating.

It gets the other teams mind off the game.

And hey.......

It could be your last TD ever. Make it remembered.




CELEBRATING IS NOT AGAINST THE RULES!!!!!!!

Actually, ellis, celebrating IS against the rules. I'm not going to go find a past NFL rulebook to quote to you, but... that's why they throw a flag for celebrating...

Thank you for proving my point. He only does what is required of him. Doesnt sound like a real team player to me.

I think excessive celebrating is against the rules Dave, not ALL celebrating. A high five doesn't get a flag...atleast not yet.

And let's not forget some of the classiest players of all-time didn't run around the endzone like a maniac after a TD. Anyone hear of Emmitt Smith and Barry Sanders? Both handed the ball to the ref or prayed in the endzone after scoring, and that is a very admirable trait. Someone on these boards has a good quote saying you should act like you have been to the endzone before when you get there. That advice couldn't apply more than in this discussion.

Marvin Harrison has outclassed Owens with his play on the field and his character on and off the field.

I think the 49ers are in trouble this year with their new coach and their so-so defense.

Why is every one so blind?

You still havn't given any good reason to think the way Owens acts is bad or what ever negative way it is.

He can do what ever he wants when he scores, HIS GAME CAN BACK IT UP!

And, There is nothing wrong with signing a football or dancing around when you score.


Taunting the Dallas fans, What was wrong with that?

I don't understand what was so bad about this.

People ,please, start using your heads.
