You know, Jen, why arenít you touting Todd Haley for the job?" he asked. "He was the only one with the [guts] to tell Jerry 'I really want this job but I canít coach this team with this guy on it. And I donít think you are going to win anything of any consequence with this guy on it.í "

This guy, of course, was Terrell Owens. And he and Haley were not exactly BFFs in their one and only season together as Cowboys under Big Bill.

T.O. vowed to "find the rats" with Haley being his prime suspect and blamed him for failing to use his considerable talent. Haley, a Big Bill disciple in every way, refused to cower and snapped right back which only further enraged perpetually touchy T.O.

Owner Jones did interview Haley, along with almost everybody else, when Bill Parcells left. Of course, Haley did not have a chance, bucking convention and saying what Jerry did not want to hear, which is T.O. is the rat.

The team that signs him needs to have an established, good, QB and coaching staff. I don't think KC would be a good fit for him. Cassel will be trying to build his image with the team and if things don't go well for TO, he would work on tearing Cassel down.

Maybe The Giants could risk it. Depends on what they do with Burress. The Patriots don't have a pressing need at WR but they have a strong enough team that they could probably handle Owens.

I think on a young team, Terrell Owens would be a major problem waiting to happen.

Agreed. Childress was in Philly when T.O. was there. I heard T.O. used to park in Childress's parking space at the Eagles complex, and wouldn't talk to Childress, but would go over his head and just talk to Andy Reid. I really doubt Childress would take him.

Chris Canty was being interviewed this morning and the hosts asked him about Owens. Canty said that TO was a very good teammate in the locker room and that he would be a good addition to the Giants. He said outside sources continually blew things out of proportion.

I personally don't think he'd be a good fit in NY because the media would just hover waiting to blow any statement up. He'd be a better fit in a small market where he could get to know a fairly honest reporter and speak through that one guy.

Well, that takes care of that. The Giants are not going to be in line to sign Terrell Owens, who has been released by the Cowboys.

There is "zero" interest in talking to Owens, according to a league source familiar with the team's situation.

Report: Holt wants out of St. Louis
It seems Torry Holt would be a good fit with the Chiefs. The Chiefs have been looking at veteran WR Bobby Engram and they've also said they are looking to help team leadership. Torry will be 33 years old next year but he has been a very productive and could still have a couple of good seasons left. Last year was a down year but he still had close to 800 yards receiving.

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3954188
"Holt, who has one year left on his current contract, is due a roster bonus of $1.25 million on March 17, making it unlikely he'll remain on the roster beyond that date. The Rams could trade him between now and then. But a number of other free-agent wide receivers have already signed deals, limiting the remaining market.

Trading or releasing Holt would save the Rams $8 million on the salary cap this season, according to the report."

Maybe a low cost trade could be worked out. If KC is going to a 3-4, then maybe one of our DEs might be part of a trade deal.

Terrell Owens has burnt every bridge in the NFL Coaching Tree. The coaching carousel in the NFL is a pretty tight group, they all bounce around, they all talk. #81 has listened to FAR TOO MUCH of what Drew Rosenhaus has sold him, and he has officially f*cked himself into a corner on this one.

Dallas was his only shot at salvation. He will be a burnout in Oaktown, and its already been reported that he's not welcome in Minnesota, Baltimore, Washington, Browns, 49ers, or New England thus far....so if he's only willing to work with a winning team, he may want to go coach D2 or something...cause if not, you might be a Raider son.

Pretty good analysis of TO.

Want to Sign T.O.? The Pros and Cons

Terrell Owens is about to be looking for work again after the Dallas Cowboys reportedly decided Wednesday night to release him.

It's nothing new for Owens. He was traded by the San Francisco 49ers following the 2003 season and released by the Philadelphia Eagles after they first suspended and then deactivated him at the end of the 2005 season.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones provided Owens with a landing spot in Dallas the last time around. Which team will take a chance on Owens's unique mix of skill and volatility this time?

It's not immediately clear. The Eagles need a receiver, but a reunion with quarterback Donovan McNabb and Coach Andy Reid seems unlikely. The Minnesota Vikings just tried but failed to land free agent wideout T.J. Houshmandzadeh, who signed with the Seattle Seahawks instead. But their coach is former Eagles offensive coordinator Brad Childress, who clashed with Owens in Philadelphia. It seems farfetched to think that Bill Parcells would take Owens in Miami or Todd Haley, formerly Parcells's passing game coordinator in Dallas during Parcells's uncomfortable pairing with Owens and now the Chiefs' head coach, would take him in Kansas City.

The Baltimore Ravens attempted to get Owens once. Would they try again? The Denver Broncos thought about adding Owens the last time he was available. The New York Giants might need to replace Plaxico Burress. What about Chicago? What about the St. Louis Rams if they trade or release Torry Holt? Perhaps the Arizona Cardinals if they can't work things out with Anquan Boldin? Tampa? How about the Indianapolis Colts after they just released Marvin Harrison? It sounds improbable but remember: Who would have thought that Randy Moss would end up in New England and thrive there?

For now, here's a quick look at the pros and cons of signing Owens:

The Pros...

1. He's still productive.

Say what you want about the guy's other issues, but he puts up numbers. He had 69 catches for 1,052 yards and 10 touchdowns for the Cowboys this past season. That's a down year for Owens. It's a career year for some receivers. In three seasons with the Cowboys, he totaled 235 catches for 3,587 yards and 38 touchdowns. He's topped 1,000 receiving yards in eight of the last nine seasons, and the only time he didn't was in 2005 for the Eagles when he played in only seven games. Clearly, he can play.

2. He can make a good team better.

Yes, the Eagles got rid of Owens after his disruptive behavior played a central role in sinking their 2005 season. But that came after the Eagles, with Owens, reached the Super Bowl in the 2004 season. That was a very good Eagles team that lapped the field in the NFC. Those Eagles were minus Owens, who was hurt, throughout the NFC playoffs. But having Owens had given the Eagles a swagger that they hadn't possessed without him. Having Owens transformed that Eagles club from good to superb. Have you seen the Eagles, under Reid and McNabb, in a Super Bowl without Owens? No.

3. He wasn't THAT bad in Dallas, was he?

He's difficult. He's a diva. He wants the ball all the time. Even when he gets the ball thrown his way a lot, he still complains. But does that make him all that different from other headliner wide receivers in the NFL? At least he backs it up with almost-ceaseless production.

The cons...

1. His age.

He's 35. He'll turn 36 before next season ends. His best days as a player perhaps are behind him, and at some point the production will drop to the point that the headaches he causes won't even begin to be worth it.

2. His diva act.

The 49ers had enough and traded him. The Eagles had enough and sent him home, then cut him. The Cowboys apparently have had enough. Owens didn't get along with Jeff Garcia. He didn't get along with McNabb. He went from tearfully defending Tony Romo in Dallas to, reportedly, accusing him of being too chummy with tight end Jason Witten to the exclusion of throwing the ball to Owens. It's beginning to appear there's simply no team--and no quarterback--with which this guy can make things work.

3. His drops.

He catches a lot of passes. But he drops a lot of passes, too. Part of the reason that his receiving numbers are so good is that he demands to have so many passes thrown his way, and he doesn't catch all of them. He often is among the league leaders in dropped passes, making him something like an NBA player who scores 25 points a night but needs to take far too many shots to do it. At some point, it's simply not worth it to have him around.
