Terrell Owens’ season is over

The first and possibly final season of Terrell Owens in Cincinnati is over.

T.O. left Sunday’s game with a knee injury that was later diagnosed as a meniscus tear.  The Bengals confirmed he won’t be back this season shortly after the game is over.

While the season ended with a thud, this was an impressive comeback season by Owens.  He finishes with 72 catches, 983 yards, and nine touchdowns.  He only topped 25 yards, however, one time in his last four starts.

Owens hung around on the free agent market last offseason for a long time.  No matter what happens with the collective bargaining agreement, we suspect that will be the case once again in 2011.

    Did it ever begin?

    This guy’s CAREER has been over for awhile.

    Too bad the title didn’t say career instead of season. Or “life” would have been ok too.

    “Owens will get $333,333 for reaching each of the following benchmarks: 60 catches, 900 yards, and 10 touchdowns. He’ll then get another $333,333 if he tops 100 catches, 1,300 yards and 14 touchdowns.”

    Guess he was 1 TD short…damn shame..well, not really…

    333 K for one more TD

    That just sucks!

    Sorry when any player suffers and injury. But fate has saved the Bengals from themselves.

    His season was over as soon as he signed with the Bengals. Maybe next year he can play with the Panthers to continue his streak of playing with losers.

    Mike Brown is thanking the turf monster for saving him money on Terrell Owens contract incentives.

  9. touchdownroddywhite says: Dec 19, 2010 6:52 PM

    Well, he didn’t exactly “play for free” since he hit some of his incentives. Anybody, think it was any coincidence that he started nearing benchmarks, and stopped seeing targets?

    Rosenthal, do some stinking research and stopping practicing selective persecution on T.O..

    Just because Owens is 37 years old and has a knee injury it doesn’t mean his career is over.

    Your ex-Patriot Junior Seau tore his achilles tendon in 2005 at age 36 and signed with New England at 37 after “graduating”. He came back again at age 38 after a season-ending arm injury and played till he was 41.

    Brett Favre had an arm injury at age 39 and came back at age 40 to help the Vikings. His season at age 41 could have been better had he not delay his surgery before the season. He messed things up.

    You never showed doubt towards your Patriot crush Wes Welker. Your site has talked about how hard he works (oh, and Owens doesn’t?).

    It’s a torn meniscus!!!! This is roughly a month long injury!!!!

    If the Bengals were in the playoffs, Owens would rehab and be ready to go!!!!

    T.O. will play again!!!

    C’mon, get out there and play! What’s the matter? Are you soft?

  12. pftrumors says: Dec 19, 2010 7:23 PM

    Overhype leads to disappointment. I gag a little everytime the Bengals are on air.

  13. ralphwilsonsucks says: Dec 19, 2010 7:25 PM


    Looks pretty good to me for a what 36 year old receiver.

  14. richm2256 says: Dec 19, 2010 7:29 PM

    Was kinda hoping he’d tear a tendon in his jaw, first. Sick of hearing his yapping.

  15. moochzilla says: Dec 19, 2010 7:33 PM

    Owens was one of the few guys that showed up every week and competed. But it is hard to imagine where he’ll end up next season.

  16. rajbais says: Dec 19, 2010 7:38 PM

    TOLD YA!!!!!

    PETER KING on NBC: T.O.’s injury is not that serious!!! Plans to play 2 more years!!! Likely not in Cincy!!!

  17. laxer37 says: Dec 19, 2010 7:43 PM

    Big Ben just tweeted that T.O. is soft.

  18. darienal says: Dec 19, 2010 7:45 PM

    Ravens won’t have to deal with TO… bonus!

  19. natelan says: Dec 19, 2010 8:14 PM

    I like T.O. Good season for an old man!

    Sorry about the injury, but you’ll be back next year, maybe with a winner this time!

  20. smokehouse56 says: Dec 19, 2010 8:15 PM

    I think I just saw him in his driveway doing pushups.

  21. ralphwilsonsucks says: Dec 19, 2010 8:31 PM

    Come back to Buffalo

  22. Deb says: Dec 19, 2010 9:00 PM

    Some of you people scare me.

  23. granadafan says: Dec 19, 2010 9:05 PM

    If we never have to hear this d-bag (and Favre) again, all will be well.
