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?

And this dope has the nerve to wonder why teams aren't lining up to sign him. If he would just shut the hell up he might have a championship by now.

Is Owens still on the Bengals? I'm too lazy to look this up but it seems like Owens has been a model player the last 2 years, Buffalo and Cincy. It was only after he left that he had anything negative to say.

Owens is Owens, sorta like Iverson formerly of the 76’ers both have tremendous talent but have a disease called talkitas. A disease where before engaging brain the mouth start moving and words come out. They have a cure for it, but seldom do these guys take the obvious free medicine. It has been around for ages and ages. Everyone use it as it is free and distributed by most physicians.  

The medicine is called Think. Normally you would find a huge dosage is leaked by your brain if you engage it prior to engaging your mouth.
