Author Topic: Terrell Owens to sign in CFL as early as next week  (Read 5020 times)

Good for the CFL and Edmonton. Owens could help out their offense and with Reilly he will have a capable QB. Owens is a big time jerk however and he is a disgrace to Hall of Fame members and likely will be never welcome back in the NFL in any role. So we will see what comes out of Owens and the CFL.

Owens is one of the mosts overrated players in history. Stats lie. He was on teams that he was used in a way that he got the ball without much difficulty and added up yardage in non important situations.
When you have someone like Randy Moss who faced tripple teams often. Owens was a short route receiver that couldn't carry a team on his shoulders.

You're right on the first part. But we might actually see Owens in the CFL soon.

He seemed to carry the Eagles to a Super Bowl appearance on one foot as I recall.

Your so very wrong. Owens although a idiot and locker room cancer everywhere he played, was one of the all time best receivers in the NFL.  Saying he is overrated is absurd. They don't put you in the Hall of Fame by being overrated.

disagree and I'm sure most do as well, not surprising to me as I haven't agree with much of what you post on here either

those coaches corner threads were about as silly as it gets on here and I have seen a lot over the years

I don't pander to the 'popular crowd', I state my opinion, which is usually supported by specific instances or statistical information... unlike you, I feel it's your right, as well as everyone else, to disagree with me and encourage any and all to engage in a respectful conversation relative to my comments. Instead, most here choose to be smart *****, or turn it into something that it isn't due to bias.

This happens because the rest of the members here allow it, choosing to blame those that they disagree with instead of the ones that start it in the first place... but see, that doesn't phase me, I could care less and will continue to participate until such time as I've grown weary of it... which for the record, could be a very long, long, long time from now... lol...

Mods, come on. Reading personal attacks is getting tedious.  A couple people here attack others whom they disagree with, and instead of addressing the topi start insulting.

I enjoy reading posters opinions, except those who offer nothing but made up b.s.  Knocking Coaches corner is embarassing to the knockers. 

I hated Owens. Then there was the feature on him when he played for the Eagles on a broken leg.  He was the best player on the field, that game.  He earned my respect. 

I can't believe he can play at age 44.

David Sanchez hit the nail on the head,today.  Owens  probably can maybe still run. Like the wind.  His body looked like it had no fat on it.  So that is amazing.  However, as David Samchez pointed out, it's the recovery, which is the downer.  It seems as the body gets older it takes longer to recover.  Maybe today with new technology with His own cryogenic chamber, and maybe Dr. Ho's electric muscle,tens machine it can work.

If someone does sign him, it sure would be interesting.hmmmmm. I wonder what team could use a receiver?

Coaches corner is a terrible group of threads. Don?t pretend you?re some sort of credible voice by calling your thread ?coach? whatever. Just start a plain old conversation about what you want to talk about.

Owens wasn?t a cancer ?everywhere he went? that statement is ignorant of facts, and a cheap way to sum a career you don?t actually know about. Want to read more? Be my guest.
http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/football/ct-nfl-terrell-owens-hall-of-fame-analysis-spt-20170213-story.html


Owens is in the hall of fame, despite a bunch of prudes who didn?t want him there.

His career was ?overrated?. Ok, are you saying he isn?t the second or third best receiver to ever play? The stats say you?re wrong. He was, without legitimate argument, one of the best to ever play.

As for the CFL, no way this goes terribly well for him. Maybe if he?s trying out for punter.... how old was Cameron when he retired?

He was never a burner in the NFL although he did have great speed. His best asset was getting free and fighting through coverage. He could still be effective given the right circumstances and opportunity.

Everyone has a right to an opinion.  Want to discuss or debate things, that's what this place is all about.

TheForks does not do that.  He starts with a position that is almost always not in fact.  And then rambles from there. 

He denegrates solid contributors to the team, and uses wildly inaccurate "stats" to backup wild conjecture.  I have yet to see on valid, statistically sound argument from him. 

I'm not adverse to lively debate, and posters personal biases based on their likes and dislikes among coaches and players.  And I have no problem with posters calling out players and coaches for bad plays, even if I disagree with whether a play was bad or just unlucky.

But saying Randle (an all star and one of the core of our D) is a bad player, and should be sat so that Sayles can play, that is just horsecrap designed to cause trouble.  Saying we should find a Nat OT to replace an AllStar Int OT so that we can sit Demski and play a WR who has yet to proven themselves, that's just stupid, dumb and completely out of touch with reality. 

So, sure, you have a right to opinion and conjecture, sure.  But there gets to be a point where it is all out trolling, and I suspect, watching the spiraling of his comments, that he is here just to try and get banned, and see how much he can get away with in the meantime...

Well said, Aardsy.

That Randle comment was particularly absurd and really drove home what that poster's objective was.

Glad to learn it's gone from here.

I absolutely agree with you. When he said Randle was a bad player and Sayles was our best DB he lost what little credibility he had with me, which honestly wasn't much. Also he doesn't seem to get that Demski is a valuable player because not only is he a Canadian but he can play RB and Rec.

C'mon. Owens is what...44 years old and he has been out of football for how long? I don't care how fast he can run in a straight line, one time with no one getting in his way. He's 44 fricking years old. No one in the CFL is going to sign him.

I never said I supported forky, other than his right to have an opinion... isn't that the whole point of this place, assert your opinion and then others chime in with their thoughts and views relative to your position? I don't have to like him or agree with him to say that he should be allowed to post his thoughts like others.

now, if that turns into to obvious abuse of such liberties, such as 'trolling' of intentional comments meant to do nothing but create a fight/argument, then yes, he should be shown the door. However, that is the responsibility of the moderators here to determine, not a public vote of 'we don't want to play with him any longer'...  mob mentality...

and as far as you 'wanting to know much less about me than more'... you're in luck then, because I don't generally post anything about myself here, so you should be safe in that regards. but at the end of the day, you better be careful in supporting that 'majority rules' mentality because at some point it may just come back to bite you. obviously there are many, many people here that don't always agree with your point of view, how would you feel if someone started a thread advocating suspending your privileges here?

it seems to be the position of some here that just because you've, forum members, have been here longer that their opinion is 'more right' or carries more weight than others. i'll echo the sentiments of my good friend swansong, who by the way I got to know by being on the other side of a conversation with here on this forum, that small minds equate to small thinking...

I feel that anyone here that is sincere in their postings have something to offer the forum as a whole, whether I agree with what they say or not, as it affords each of us to view the same events with a different perspective. And I'll go you one further, I'll admit that I've learned more from those that I've disagreed with than those that I do.

being open, or considering, others thoughts and position is an opportunity to expands one's mind... being a broken record and  constantly repeating the same old 'everything is fine, just wait and see' really adds nothing to the conversation. At the end of the day, I'm not here looking to find friends, per se, I'm here to talk about a team I support and want to see win and offer a narrative of how I believe that can be done or where I feel we are falling short. If you think my opinions are wack, feel free to skip them, as your comments of repeating how I don't have any credibility with you is getting rather redundant and quite honestly, old...  if you don't like what I've had to say, maybe it's because it rings true with you... just sayin'...

For someone who always pulls the "I have the right to post this" card, it's odd you fail to see that Chevelle was just saying The Forks had or has the right to post. He never said "I agree and support what The Forks is saying".

I didn't read Chevelle's comments in how you indicated. He was stating let the guy have an opinion. If it's worthy of consideration or critique then by all means have a go. At the end of the day forky's views will either be supportable or not by either his own justifications or someone else's.
