TO to the Jets?

The New York Jets have expressed interest in Terrell Owens. While it looks like the Bengals are the clear front runners, this throws a "wrench" in TOs decision. Does he go to a seasoned veteran, Carson Palmer, in Cincy, or does he go to the up and coming star, Mark Sanchez, in NY? Both teams are playoff caliber teams. Which ever one gets TO will become a HUGE threat in the postseason. The chances of the Jets signing TO? Slim, but, you never know.

TO and Ochocinco...Together?!

The St. Louis Rams are not persuing star wideout Terrell Owens. The Cinncinati Bengals, however, are. Carson Palmer has now expressed interest in aquiring Owens. The Bengals have discussed a deal with Terrell Owens. If TO deos go to Cincy, I think (if little TO learns to share with little Chad) the Bengals will become a threat to go deep into the post season.

Growing Pains

It only gets worse for Dez Bryant. Not only did he lose the respect of the ENTIRE league for not carrying Roy Williams pads, but he also lost his deal with Under Armour. The sports wear company insists that it has nothing to do with Bryant refusing to carry Williams pads. According to NFL.com, the moment Bryant stepped onto the practice field a month ago, he's been sporting Nike gloves and shoes.
"Under Armour and Dez Bryant agreed to mutually part ways," stated an Under Armour official.

More Pain for USC

As if the whole Reggie Bush thing wasn't enough for the University of Southern California, they are now being sued. That's right, I said it, sued. Two days after the football program announced Kennedy Pola becoming the offensive coordinator, Polas former team, the Tennessee Titans, are now suing Lane Kiffin and USC. They are suing Kiffin and USC for "maliciously luring away" the assistant. As you may recall, Jeff Fisher, Titans head coach, was unhappy with the way Kiffin pursued and signed Pola. In my opinion, this is down right hilarious. This is what our world is coming to! The Tennessee Titans (an NFL team!) is SUING a college football program for "maliciously luring away" one of their coaches. This one ought to be good!

T.O. AND Ochocinco?

There are two teams that have kept in contact with Terrell Owens agent, the Rams and the Bengals. While it is not certain where T.O. will go, Chad Ochocinco thinks he has a say in it. Ochocinco told reports that Owens should come to Cincy so the two of them could be "batman and robin." If Chad gets his wish, then the question becomes....who's batman and who's robin?

Pola to Coach USC RBs

The USC Trojans hire running backs coach Kennedy Pola as Offensive Coordinator. Pola was the running backs coach for the Tennessee Titants. Jeff Fisher, Titans Head Coach, is very disappointed in the "professionalism" not shown by Lane Kiffin, USC Head Coach. Fisher told The Tennessean:
"I am very disappointed in Lane Kiffin's approach to this. Typically speaking, when coaches are interested in hiring or discussing potential employment from coaches on respective staffs there is a courtesy call made from the head coach or athletic director indicating there is an interest in talking to the assistant. So I am very disappointed in the lack of professionalism on behalf of Lane, to call me and leave me a voicemail after Kennedy had informed me he had taken the job. It is just a lack of professionalism."

The Titans plan to promote from within for replacing Pola.
