A Simple But Somehow Dangerous Mind …..

A Simple But Somehow Dangerous Mind …..

Perhaps no one should be surprised by this at all but NFL wide receiver Terrell Owens while recuperating from knee surgery has seen fit to proffer up some advice to Philadelphia Eagles’ player DeSean Jackson . The Eagles’ running back is in the midst of a contractual dispute with the organization but he has chosen not to become a holdout but herein lies the caveat with regard to the issue . Owens has stated that he believes the Eagles are demeaning Jackson by not meeting the player’s demands. For Terrell Owens , choosing to intercede in this matter simply stirs up emotions long held by the player who felt he was mistreated by the Philadelphia Eagles. If one recollects , the player had a short tenure with the team that made a Superbowl appearance eventually losing (SBXXXIX) to the New England Patriots in the league’s showcase event.

Owens has always sought to be the center of attention and it certainly goes without saying even with his eponymous VH1 reality show entitled “The TO Show” . Now sorely missing that center stage and no doubt aggrieved that after last season the Cincinnati Bengals chose not to offer the retain the player for this season . The more Owens offers an opinion on any topic with regard to the NFL , the more of an ingrate he’s thought to be by the fans. And the player himself represented by agent Drew Rosenhaus , who still believes that a roster spot will open up for his client . Somehow , given the gravity of his injury , a torn ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) in his right and the time needed to recuperate , it remains a remote possibility that Owens would simply be healthy enough to given be available for an NFL team in the need of a productive veteran wide receiver . Owens’ best years are indeed behind him and at this point of his career even though he craves that final bid to obtain that elusive Superbowl ring , one can’t help but feel that his last shot has gone !

From my own perspective I do believe that Terrell Owens simply cannot stand to be left out in the cold , standing on the sidelines watching many of his peers being productive. No longer considered to amongst the elite at the wide receivers in the league , albeit that the hunger is still there does anyone truly now believe that he has anything else left to offer ? It’s now time for Owens to take his show off the road hang up the cleats and perhaps do something else that gets him the attention he craves ! As to what that might be ……… who the hell knows or simply cares ?

Before the NFL season has even started the biggest story of the year has to be the very fact that Indianapolis Colts’ starting quarterback Peyton Manning while recuperating from neck surgery may well have undergo a further operation that could very well put the player out for team’s lineup for at least three months . Hardly the situation envisaged by the coaching staff or front office of the Colts’ organization with the loss of the four time league MVP .

The Indianapolis Colts have signed Kerry Collins to be the team’s starting quarterback and with good reason as neither of presumed backups to Peyton Manning have proven to at all productive during the Colts’ preseason schedule . Curtis Painter if anything, has proven that he’s simply not yet ready for the rigors of the NFL or to be viewed as the heir apparent to Manning.

With the loss of Peyton Manning, this now throws the AFC South wide open as to the aspirations for the teams within that division. Certainly the Jacksonville Jaguars , Houston Texans and Tennessee Titans all now feel that they can vie for supremacy and usurp the Colts as the division’s new champion this upcoming season . A loss of this magnitude for the Indianapolis Colts cannot simply be quantified but if you really want to deem a player’s value to a team then look no further than what Manning has meant to this team since he entered the NFL . His record start of 227 consecutive games apart from being a four time league MVP and the active leader in TD’s thrown (399) and yardage amassed ( 54,828) and you can well understand his value to this organization. For team owner Jim Irsay and GM Bill Polian this has to be gut wrenching for both executives but no more so than what it must now mean to the
beleaguered Colts’ fans.

One could subscribe to the fact that with all the talk of the rookie quarterbacks taken in the NFL Draft there’s bound to be talk what we should expect from these players this upcoming season . We may well get to learn a great deal about the aspiration of Cam Newton , Andy Dalton , Blaine Gabbert , Christian Ponder and Terrelle Pryor as they seek to make a name for themselves in the NFL .

I don’t know about you , but I feel that of all the federal government agencies within President Barack Obama’s administration have shown clear ineptitude but it has been the sheer idiocy shown by the Justice Department overseen by Attorney General Eric Holder that has me perturbed ! His office presented the government’s case against Barry Bonds that over its elongated time-frame swallowed up some $25 million of taxpayers’ money , countless hours of investigative man-hours all to prove that the player committed perjury and was found guilty in the obstruction of justice . Pardon for saying this , but when the government can burn through $25 million like it’s “Monopoly money” it begs the question ……. what type of idiots are there now seated within highest positions of power not just within this administration but also within the Senate and House of Representatives ?

Having been found guilty and then seeking a US Federal Appellate Court ruling to overturn to his verdict which was denied and Barry Bonds now awaits sentencing by the judge who presided over his case. That phase will take place early next year but it is felt that the player may not face any jail time but he could well be placed on probation .

At what point did Roger Clemens’ lawyer Rusty Hardin deem it appropriate for one of his subordinates to confer with the jurors after the player’s trial , that ended with the judge declaring a mistrial ? It has come to our attention that although reasons behind the judge’s decision stemmed from a US Attorney discussing the case with a congress member on camera , we are now finding out that upon that judicial verdict a an defense attorney/ investigator , part of Hardin’s defense team saw fit to question a juror to discern their thoughts on whether or not they thought Clemens guilty of the charges he faced . Amongst the litany of charges faced by the seven time Cy Young winner faced were the obstruction of justice , perjury in lying to a congress member having been sworn under oath to be tell the truth.

The judicial facade of the Clemens’ case has rested upon the player’s staunch belief that he has done nothing wrong . But with the sworn testimony given to the House Oversight Committee by Roger Clemens as well his former teammate Andy Pettite and personal trainer Brian McNamee —— questions still abound as to the player’s veracity and his claims that both McNamee and Pettite have misconstrued his statements. Brian McNamee whose own integrity and character has come into question and his own claims that he supplied his then client as a personal trainer with steroids including HGH as well as numerous prohibitive substances. That asides , this idiotic episode seems to be far from over as countless thousand of dollars of taxpayers’ money will be wasted on a judicial procedure that has made a mockery of the system which has shown the public that ……… justice as we know it , is not equitable for all !

Though I have felt all along had the hierarchy of Major League Baseball (MLB) had the backbone to stand up to the MLBPA (union) we would not be at a point where we still question the integrity of the game itself and the ongoing accomplishments of the players. Instead we’re now having to listen to Commissioner Bud Selig talk about his initiative in seeking divisional realignment and adding to the premise of the playoff system with two extra teams per league for the wildcard berths . At this point , I would like to pose the question to the commissioner at what point will he pull his finger out of his own ass and address the real issues that the game faces in terms of the teams’ financial stability ? Somehow , I don’t believe that Bud Selig or any senior league executive within the MLB head office would be willing to provide us all with the answers we seek .

  1. You’ve got to love TO and his continued stupidity ; ! Both and Owens and DeSean Jackson are represented by Drew Rosenhaus . Could it be that TO wants back in with the Eagles once he has recuperated from his injury ?

    As for Clemens and his lawyers it’s bad enough to expect the prosecution to fu_k up but for them (Clemens’s defense team) to do so as well ? Oh well the US justice system never ceases to amaze at all !

    Anyone else of the opinion that the Indianapolis Colts could well be doomed this season ?

    If the Justice Dept can’t successfully prosecute victimless crimes then perhaps Eric Holder and his staff can try indicting this female for being too provocative ? But they’d probably fu_k that up as well !

  2. What?!? We haven’t heard the last of TO? His days are long gone, even without the knee surgery. Had he kept QUIET he would have been an asset to the Niners, but, TO being TO……….


    1. al clements

      I can’t decide which is more annoying …… having to listen to TO opine on something or a political debate between the GOP nominees seeking the Presidential nomination for 2012 ! Owens giving DeSean Jackson advice is akin to Madoff giving his thoughts to a Boy Scout looking to raise money for a social cause .

      Why can’t he ( Owens ) simply just go away and shut the hell up ? His years have come and gone …… why can’t he simply accept that and ride off into the sunset ?

      tophatal ……..


    2. al clements

      TO has his leg in a stirrup at the moment to take the pressure off his ailing knee. Personally I’d place his testes in a vice and simply tighten that bitch up and hear him squeal like a bitch ! Just my take on the matter though ! How ’bout them apples ?

  3. I had a bad feeling about Peyton’s neck injury when the Colts announced they weren’t going to just run him out there to have the streak continue.

    As it turns out, there was something very wrong.

    Best wishes for a speedy recovery, sir, although I’m pretty sure the entire city of Houston doesn’t necessarily agree.


    1. Chris Humpherys

      Anyone with an ounce of common sense would know it was way too much to expect Peyton Manning to be back and in the prime of health to be even ready to lead the Colts this season . It just goes to show how naive the front office and coaching staff were with regard to the player’s health …. never mind Manning , himself. This will be his third such surgery in the last eighteen months and he thought he’d back in the swing of things so soon ? Who the hell was he kidding at this stage of his career ?

      The city of Houston and in particular Kubiak and that Texans’ team had better take advantage of this golden opportunity . If not then they’re in for hard time over the course of the season . I’m still not sold on them because their defense is so poor and also the inconsistency of Schaub has always been a question mark to my mind ! Simply look at his stats over his years in the NFL ?

      Granted , the thinking may well be ……….the AFC South is the Texans for the taking but each season over the last two years they’ve simply proven that they can’t get over the hump. They’ve yet to make the postseason and team owner Bob McNair and the front office have to be now concerned about that .

      If Kubiak can’t get the Texans into the postseason this year then look for him to be one of many managerial casualties at the end of this season .

      tophatal ……………….


  4. TO is an idiot enough said on him. Roger Clemens is a waste of time. The Colts will struggle without Manning. Expect the upset for Collins and the Colts will have point to prove. The traditional thinking is ine out of ten times wrong


    1. Bobby Gee

      That’s what make the fans either love or hate TO ! It has been his deftness of appearing stupid while he’s the only one who actually takes himself seriously . That has been his schtick over the years and it has now become so weak and asinine . He simply needs to grow the fu_k and act like a man and a parent ………….. neither of which he’s actually been successful at , at this juncture in his life !

      The Indianapolis Colts may well eke out a berth for the postseason but I for one don’t expect them to get beyond the wildcard round . To my mind without Manning this team is no better than an eight or nine game winner within the AFC South and that might not be enough to win the division much less gain a playoff berth within the AFC .

      As for Clemens , he and his attorneys led by Rusty Hardin are now on thin ice .

      tophatal ………..


  5. If the Texans can’t get it done this year they never will. Kubiak is living on borrowed time (only Sparano might be in a more precarious position).

    Indy will be fortunate to go 7-9 this season and likely will end up 5-11 or 6-10.


    1. Drew

      Kubiak’s nutsack and manhood will be placed in a vice , squeezed tightly to ensue the necessary pain for the victim (coach) . The individuals administering this will be Texans owner Bob McNair and GM Rick Smith with the entire coaching staff and front office watching .

      The Colts need to at least end up with the worse record in the league at season’s end so that they can have a shot at Andrew Luck in the 2012 NFL Draft . Let’s get real here , if Manning isn’t fully fit then he might as well quit because the type of injury and surgery he’s since had isn’t the easiest thing to recuperate from ! Nerve and tissue surgery (neck) by a neurosurgeon affects so many things with regard to a players’ motion and feel .

      On the other hand Denise Milani is now about to offer her services to Peyton as his personal masseuse . So who knows how quickly he’ll recuperate ?

      tophatal ……..


  6. Drew

    Sparano was Parcells’ hire but it simply shows that once the former Bills’ coach departed you simply knew that Tony Sparano would be a complete friggin’ bust ! Anyone of the belief that Chad Henne can lead this team then they need to be medicated and placed under constant observation to determine their medical issues !

    Sparano on a good day couldn’t lead a horse to water much less make it drink even if they were stranded at a nearby water source in the midst of a desert ! So why would anyone be of the belief that he can coach the Dolphins to any semblance of success ?

    “Reggie call me I’m available to do all of the things that Kim did in her video for Ray J . Holla ” !
