Bottom line...these 2 guys are better at making fools of themselves than they've ever been at football. I'm from Philly and remember TO's talent. I supported him even when he started to act up because no matter what the press indicated, he was still a team player on game day. He really seemed to light a fire in his teammates on the sideline but now he's become a huge joke. Maybe it's time he retire and focus 100% on entertainment and preserve the memory of his once spectacular football career...As for Ocho, I don't know anything about him or care to. Just sayin'

Love T.O not hate! You never see T.O. in trouble outside the field like other players he's just highly competitive on the field. Great to see him playing this year but I wanted to see him go to the Steelers!

TO Is Great, When he gets a new contract he runs out after his first pay advance and spends money like a kid that just got his first paycheck.

It's so funny what makes a black man happy, like when he bought a pair of earrings for 140,000.00.

While his mother is living in a shack in an old wheelchair.

He is a complete animal.No one will sign him because hes a complete animal and he still don't get it.Just because you can run drills with kids in the summer does not make you a good person someone said "He bought ps3s for the kids" That does not mean he is still a complete animal and por excuse for a good example.We need more athletes like derek jeter.Humble.Terrell will be old and broke.He pretends to be financially sounds but hes a fraud and now hes old.That what he gets for acting like the animal he is.

people are just scared of the possibilities with chad ochocinco terrell owens and antonio bryant.No team can cover 3 top notch receivers one or more of them will get open and get the big play.Too many people hate on the cincinnati bengals that's ok last season people did the same thing.However they got the defense back and improved the weak areas.Cincinnati will continue to get no respect until they win the big one the superbowl.Well people get ready to show some respect the bengals have a stacked team and if they stay healthy and players step up when there are injuries so go ahead and hate on them.That just makes them play better T.O. will just make the team better since he and chad are good friends.
