Terrell Owens rips Bengals coaching staff

From the “some guys just don't get it” file, Terrell Owens recently appeared on NFL Total Access and had some very blunt thoughts about the Bengals’ problems in 2010.

“I think if you look at the talent we had in that loT. Owens (US Presswire)cker room this year and we mustered four wins, that should let you know something is not right,” Owens said. “Throughout the year, I saw some things that really wasn’t right.

“I’ve made a comment about if you’re trying to win some championships, it starts from the top down. (Warren Sapp) mentioned Mike Brown; I think even before I got there, they said the owner was a little different. Obviously, I saw that. You start with the head coach, and then you start with the staff on both sides of the ball. … Offensively, we really didn’t have the coaching that we really needed to muster what we had on the offensive side of the ball.”

Bam.

To be clear, what Owens is saying is absolutely correct. Week in and week out last season, the Bengals offense presented one of the most basic and predictable attacks football has to offer. There’s a reason offensive coordinator Bob Bratkowski was recently let go.

But if you’re Owens, why would you say this publicly? What good does trashing your previous coaching staff do in terms of helping you get signed as a free agent? Why do you think all 32 teams let you stay on the market for months and months last year? Think these type of comments might ultimately impact your earning power?

I'm glad TO is talking up and I am glad Carson Palmer is taking a stand against Mike Brown. Cincinnati fans are fed up and tired of losing. I hope the fans cancel their season tickets until Brown hires a GM who knows what he is doing!

You're right and you're wrong, BlazederFan. True, T.O. didn't rip anybody. Mostly, except for a certain sometimes sulky QB, he mostly doesn't. On the other hand, the man has utterly ZERO awareness of other people's humanity. He quite obviously sees us all as stick figures, real only to the extent that we reflect him or seem, to him, to get in the way of his reflection.
The guy's as big a narcissist as has ever lived. In no way malignant, but totally oblivious.

Really? i watched this interview and TO didn't "rip" the Bengals. He was asked about Palmers desire to leave the team and he said that Palmer saw some problems within the organization and felt that he could do better elsewhere. He was then asked if he agreed with Palmer and if so if he could elaborate on the problems within the organization which is when he gave the

statement. He was calm collected and relatively polite (considering the subject, much more so than most of the Bengals fans i know) through the entire interview and didn't say anything that isn't glaringly obvious to anyone who watched Cinci play this year, including their management. If anything TO showed a level of maturity during this interview that was most unexpected.

this was just a poor attempt by Andy Benoit to stir up some TO controversy on a slow day for NFL news. I really hope he doesn't consider this journalism. Way to take something out of context, blow it out of proportion and use it to bash a guy that gets enough bad press for two or three players already. I'm not a TO fan but i dislike dishonest, shotty reporting even more.
