Wednesday Morning Starting Five: T.O. and Ochocinco Twin Powers…Activate!

Name one defensive back tandem that can stop these two

Focus on the dumb stuff if you want to but the tandem of Chad Ocho Cinco and Terrell Owens will be a force this upcoming NFL season. Folks will scream entertainment and sharing the spotlight and drama this and drama that but on the football field is where the doughnuts are made.

I understand folks have preconceived opinions on the two, but the craziness that will media ensue heading into the season in Cincy really has nothing to do with the actual game. Plenty of zone will be employed by defensive coordinators across the land who look to prohibit this duo from picking up excessive celebration fines in the end zone.

While Terrell Owens has lost a step, he’s still one of the best to ever play the position and combine his field savvy with Chad’s skill set and on field performance and Carson Palmer has no excuse but to put up huge numbers. Antonio Bryant’s health is a factor in how many balls T.O. catches but trust he will be on the field with the game on the line.

    For the sake of consistency and to satisfy my own deep-seated wish to never, never, ever see any black folks get along, I want to say just how disgusted I am that EgoManiac 1 has decided to hook up with EgoManiac 1A. It’s appalling. I would be much happier if one went to South Beach and the other went to Cleveland.

    Does Viacom own a stack in the Bengals???

    Or does the owner of the Bengals own some Viacom Stock???

    Well the NFL is shown on CBS which is owned by Viacom….which owns VH1 which broadcasts the TO and Chad show…AKA 2 hour of the new Amos and Andy show. I couldn’t think of two better fools to play together.

    Times like this really show how sports is nothing more then entertainment.

    And I will say it once again………the NFL where WR stimulus packages are handed out to golden boys every offseason.

    Now watch carson palmer garbage butt get elevated to top 5 QB status by the ignorant sports writers……ala Peter King. Even though Palmer busta butt probably still won’t get out the first round.

  3. Origin says:

    Looks like the media is trying to label Dez Bryant the new diva WR.

  4. KevDog says:

    Don’t know shit about Football anymore except that it fucks with your brain.

    T3-That’s funny as hell.

    Orgin-Seems you pegged both those cats.

    Maureen Dowd is right. Obama needs to quit being a pussy when it comes to race.

    Matt Barnes and Theo Ratliffe coming to the Lakers completes the transition of our team from Showtime to Bad-Boy Pistons. but we’ve more skilled big men and Kobe is gonna do some more work. I’l laughing my high yellow ass off at those who think that team in Miami can beat us. 83-79, not 124-118.

    Miz-Freddie Hubbard?

    Come on man, your homeboy Clifford is the GOAT and you ain’t posted none of his stuff. Hit me back for some suggestions.

    Freddie was perhaps the only Jazz trumpet player ever who could lay claim to being Clifford’s equal as a technician, but his music suffered greatly by the lack of cohesion of his solos and indeed the lack of cohesion of his entire career. Freddie never seemed to find that comfort zone of who he was a s trumpet player. But Clifford, man, he was just THE BEAST!

    One more thing.

    Last week I was switching through the channels and saw a replay this match……..http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qwBOeH4EkGc

    DAMN! Serena was SMOKIN’ She was as fine as fly hair. DAMN!

    I dunno much about football but I’m a big fan of Ocho Cinco. He’s not scurrred of anyone and he’s a little bit crazy, both of which I’m in favor of. TO, well, like you said Miz, he’s not getting younger, but people didn’t back off MJ in ’00 either. He’s one of the greats and this will open it up for a team I have enjoyed watching over the last decade or so.

    And anything that KevDog says about the Lakers, I co-sign. :)

  7. Mizzo says:

    It’s coming fam. I just happened to be listening to that track this morning.

  8. Miranda says:

    Kevdog, Maureen Dowd’s pasty cracka ass can go jump off a cliff with her mandingo fantasies. Nothing that wench writes will ever be worth agreeing with…NOTHING.

  9. KevDog says:

    Miranda

    I don’t know Dowd from Adam. I was specifically referring to her analysis of Obama’s seeming need to distance himself from any racial controversy and his terrible decision to go along with the firing of Sherrod.
