The T.O. Show – Live from Cincinnati

LOS ANGELES, CA - JULY 14: NFL wide receiver Terrell Owens arrives at the 2010 ESPY Awards at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on July 14, 2010 in Los Angeles, California. (Photo by Alexandra Wyman/Getty Images for ESPY)

So, it’s official. Terrell Owens is now a Bengal.

I’m excited. No, really.

OK.

Maybe I’m not.

I am, however, intrigued.

Can Owens, a guy that will be 37 years old by years’ end, bounce back from 2009 – his worst full season since his rookie year in 1996?

Can Carson Palmer keep him and Chad Ochocinco happy?

I’m guessing that it will all work out pretty well. Owens knows that this is likely his last shot. Wide outs don’t play past 36 as a general rule.

And Owens, Palmer and Ochocinco all want a ring – another powerful motivator for the 30-something pro athlete.

Put me down for somewhere in the neighborhood of 60 catches and six touchdowns, numbers that may not reach his previous high standards, but excellent ones for a No. 2 receiver.

One thing is for sure.

The touchdown celebrations in Cincy this year are going to be legendary…

    It is really going to be interesting to see T.O. in Cincy with Ochocinco there. Two of the most controversial wide receivers in the league on the same team, it’s like a media dream come true. I actually think that TO can help a team out, but he truly has to realize that he is not the go to guy and is not going to get the ball all the time. I’m not sure that is possible. Nevertheless, it is going to be a great NFL season. The only thing I’m waiting for is Favre to officially return :). Also, you think you could check out my post about TO’s possible return cuz I would love to hear your thoughts. http://chrisross91.wordpress.com/2010/07/16/unemployed-and-desperate/

    Ok cuz, here’s what I’m thinking. This rocks on multiple levels. I have always appreciated Ochocinco–he’s just too entertaining not to be fun. He’s also never run his QB down like T.O. has. He mainly talks about how great he is and how he can’t be covered. Never runs others down. Really speaks to this guy’s joy for life, for the game, and to his loyalty, probably a trait not normally associated with 85. I think T.O. will do just fine here; he had a quiet season in the suckfest that was Buffalo last year, still getting over 800 yards and 5 scores from the likes of Trent Edwards and Ryan Fitzpatrick. He even publicly talked about how good his behavior was last year. I think T.O. just wants to be loved. He’ll get some love from Palmer–I’m going with 65 receptions, 900 yards, 6-8 TDs. He still had 15.1 ypc last year; above his career average. In Buffalo. From Edwards and Fitzpatrick. That stud running game in Cinci, with other defenses keying on 85 and having to atone for Gresham…I like this all the way around for Owens to rebound.
