Terrell Owens IS DONE: The first time I met Owens was when he was a young star in San Francisco. He was always an--ahem--confident man. At least, on the surface. I remember he finished up our interview with something like: you'll be hearing a lot more from me. Well, we certainly did, eh? We've heard a lot from Owens over the past decade or so. Off the field, Owens was a jackass. But that shouldn't obscure what he's done on it. There was a time when Owens was the most physically imposing wide receiver threat in football. He terrified defenses and then yapped and yapped and yapped about how he did it. Yes, a jackass, but a damn talented one. A Hall of Fame one.

He also had tremendous heart despite being a clown. Remember how he came back from a broken leg to play in the Super Bowl?

Now comes word Owens recently shattered his ACL and will miss six months. I expect Owens to publicly state his career will go on and there will be no retirement but I can tell you Owens has told several people in the NFL that he has indeed considered retirement. Again, that doesn't mean he will, but he's told people in the sport he's considering it.

Owens, with little question, is done in the NFL as an elite receiver. Owens didn't have a bad last season but look closely at Owens and it's easy to see that burst he once had was gone. Now, at the age of 37, coming off a torn ACL, there's no way Owens can be great again. I doubt he can even be good again.

My guess is Owens will try to come back because it would keep his fat head in the news and he could use a comeback to generate another reality show. Also, Owens is just 25 catches away from being second all-time to only Jerry Rice. That's pretty damn good. 

But no matter. For now, Owens is done. His career, as we knew it, is over.

And despite being one of the great pains in the ass, the Hall of Fame awaits.

LOCKOUT NEWS: Representatives of the owners and players continued discussions via phone over the weekend and are expected to meet this week at an undisclosed location. I can tell you there were no significant breakthroughs but the signs continue to be encouraging.

See you Tuesday.

Turk...so I guess you shame the Redskins (1980's) dances with 3 WR's when they scored, or the Ickey Shuffle, or McMahon and the Bears, Superbowl Shuffle, or the Cowboys Hill gun celebration, or the Brett Favre celebrations and passionate display of emotions, or the Deion "Prime-Time" dance, or Ray Lewis' pregame entrance antics, safeties and corners show of the incomplete wave with their arms after they break up a pass play, or even Dirk Now's "We are the Champion" singing after the NBA championship. What I'm getting at is that these players, most of them, put their heart and soul into what they do. And many of them love to celebrate, as do a lot of people in general. I can't help it that you are a tight-wad who can't show emotions. Even LT does the head touch with the finger roll after a TD. The number one rule at any job is that you have fun. Some go overboard, but you should learn how to separate fun and egotistial. Owens is egotistical, but 85 is just loving the game of football. Also, and lastly, what makes you ANY better than T.O. if you're wishing him ill-will? A grown man wishing another grown man bad health issues is pathetic sir, and not really a man at all. Hating someone you've never met, and probably will never meet is just insane. I don't care for T.O., so I'm not taking up for him on any level, but I cannot, and will not, let someone I don't even have a relationship with, control my life to where I hate him and wish him ill-will. That would make me weak-minded....

Besides the Hall of Fame there should be a Hall of Shame with guys like T.O. being "busted" in it with their mouths wide open to show kids what NOT to be when playing sports. For those who support Owens [& many other mostly WR's actions on/off the field, I feel sorry for you. Apparently you weren't taught true sportsmanship as I was when younger. You accepted a bad day just like you did the good ones, not making excuses or pointing your fingers at others---like the QB. Wide Receiver has LONG been the worst group for egomaniacs in the NFL, with many starting this nasty habit back in college [maybe some in high school, heck, I don't know for sure]. I hope Owens is done & wish him nothing but bad luck as far as any tv reality shows, movies or anything where he can make easy money using that awfully big mouth of his. I can only wish that his ACL injury is bad enough to humble him some but I honestly don't think that is possible. He's an a**hole & will be until he takes his last breath. So are a few [quite a few actually] other WRs out there [Moss, Ocho-"Stupido", Burresss, etc., etc.]. God! It would be nice to clean the "riff-raff" out of my favorite sport of football! Yell No more Sharpie, cradling "baby", etc., etc. scenes. Just play ball---------OK?!

I think anyone who doubts TO is crazy he has a body like Hershel Walker ... People love to knock him because they are haterz but say what you want about the man on the field because he never gives you a off the field issue to talk about outside of football but yet people ride him like he is a felon.. Goodluck TO..

He lost his status as an elite receiver the second he signed with Buffalo.

I love Terrell Owens, but the man lost his mind along the way and never reached his full potential. Loved him as a 49er, but, for him, it was probably a curse that unraveled his career. In San Francisco, every receiver is a long second best, under the looming shadow of arguably the greatest football player ever, Mr. Rice, but Terrell Owens's personality is not one to take to being overshadowed. He sought the spotlight, got a little too overzealous and got typecasted. He played along with his new stereotype, and thus T.O. was born. Unlike Terrell Owens, who merely got a little carried away with team loyalty one day, T.O. was blatantly brash, and I'd say the new T.O. relied more on his natural athleticism and his brash showmanship than actual hard work. I say that because T.O. seemed to drop a lot more passes than Terrell Owens did. Terrell Owens was born with incredible gifts, and, under Mr. Rice's oversight, was a hard worker, generally quiet, and a brilliant gameday performer. If he had kept to that, he could have one day been worthy of being seen within Mr. Rice's limelight, even in San Francisco. But, when Mr. Rice was sent off to Oakland and the team was handed to Terrell Owens, T.O. was created, and T.O. destroyed the legend that was to be Terrell Owens. I personally saw no problem with what Terrell Owens did in Dallas. He showed that he bled red and gold, like every Niners fan (and unlike certain NBA players these days who lack this sort of team passion and loyalty). I think Mooch should have fallen on that grenade instead of helping to create T.O. and start up the end for both of them in SF, because it was only after that incident, with Mooch's cowardly response not to show the same type of loyalty to Terrell Owens, that Owens started acting up on the Niners and T.O. came into being. Of course, Terrell Owens himself did not need to buy into this role of "NFL villian."

Statisically, the numbers don't lie. They are 1-Rice, 2-Ownes, 3-Moss.... and Moss/Owens can flip flop spots because they are neck and neck right now. No one else comes close, past or present. Of the three, only Rice has the respect and was a total team player. The other two have no criminal records, Moss minor hiccup, but both have been shown to be a disruption to their respective teams. But you cannot deny their stats in the discussion of G.O.A.T.
