Terrell Owens Blame Bengals Coaching Staff For Failures

The one thing I like about Terrell Owens is even though he continues to burn bridges on every team he plays for, his assessment of the teams are usually spot on.

Unfortunately because he doesn’t have media protection he gets blasted for his honesty.  Owens comments about the Bengals are no different that what Carson Palmer is subliminally saying, it is just Owens has no tact.

“You start with the head coach, and then you start with the staff on both sides of the ball,” Owens said on NFL Network’s Total Access. “Offensively, we really didn’t have the coaching that we really needed to muster what we had on the offensive side of the ball.”

“I’ve made a comment about if you’re trying to win some championships, it starts from the top down,” Owens said. “[Sapp] mentioned Mike Brown; I think even before I got there, they said the owner was a little different. Obviously, I saw that.”

“Obviously if you have your franchise quarterback who is supposed to be that guy for your team trying to get out of there, that’s kind of telling the organization something, and that’s telling a lot of people out there something as well,” Owens said.

The one problem that Owens has, is that he never preface his comments by taking any of the blame himself.  He may not honestly believe he is to blame, so he feels no need to say it.

But when are talking about team sports, win as a team, lose as a team.  The players are to blame as well, even if the coaches and front office is incompetent.

Owens has Bart Simpson disease every time something goes bad he says.

“It wasn’t me.”

Sometimes it isn’t, sometimes he does have something to do with it, but what he fails to realize is that the other teams in the NFL see this and wonder if he is worth the trouble.

There is a reason only the Bengals offered him a contract last season.

    The Bengals were the only team last year that extended an offer to come play. He acknowledges that fact by burning that bridge too. Now what? Retirement and wait forever for the hall of fame to consider an obvious waste of a career, regardless of his numbers.

    Owens has blamed himself for more things than any other athlete in sports. You must have missed the numerous times he took blame throughout the course of the season. All he has done in his career is take shit…and yet he still gives himself more shit than any other athlete alive.

    And then imbeciles like you have the nerve to accuse him of "never taking any blame."

    Terrell Owens, the most embarrassingly misconstrued athlete in the history of professional sports.

    By the way, Fredrick Ellis (aka "idiotic clone") – A WASTE of a career? Why? He has played 15 years in the NFL. That's better than 99.9% of all players in the NFL. He is second all-time in receiving yards, third in receiving touchdowns. How, exactly, is that a "waste?"

    And regarding "burning that bridge too"–Owens would retire before playing for the Bengals again. They are awful…possibly the worst organization in sports. He wants nothing to do with them…nor do Carson Palmer or Chad Johnson.

    Oh, one more thing of note–the Rams were in play for Owens. He would've been better off signing there, but he was deluded into thinking the Bengals had a shot by their fluke 2009 record.

      Yeah, you're right Educator. We ALL missed all those time the self-absorbed chump took the blame for anything. I guess we should have been paying closer attention.

    I for one have been a Bengal fan since their league entrance, and say KUDOS to TO for having spoken TRUTH, and item that has been absent since the passing of Paul Brown. Give Terrell a medal………because personally ALL PRO SPORTS STINK.. it's not about the game, but how much can I make………….. Hope you all file bankruptcy
