08:00 AM ET 11.22 | Marvin Lewis said he was speechless. Thank goodness for Terrell Owens, who not only is the best player on this offense right now, but also has become what passes for the team's public conscience. When T.O. is your go-to guy for objective discussion, you know your team's season has entered a third dimension. "We're terrible, me included," said Owens. ... "Let me emphasize terrible. We find ways to lose. We may go two and whatever. Fourteen. We've made enough mistakes the last six ballgames to last us a lifetime."

Let's see. Ocho Cinco. Isn't that "eight five?" And what number do you see in the picture? And what is your IQ?

The sad part is T.O. gets padded stats on an under-achieving team, only to hang around the NFL for another year.

Boss- "OK intern, get a picture of TO for the article."
Intern, bewildered- "How about a black guy in a Bengals uniform?"
Boss- "Sure, why not. No one will notice."

I still want Moss to join the Bungles next year - Moss /TO/ Cinco, it would be a non-stop laugh riot.

TO is auditioning for a spot on a better team next year. Can't think of a good match, however. Maybe Tampa Bay.

November 22, 2010  08:23 AM ET

bets on whether Lewis is asked to come back as HC?

The Bengals locker room is full of characters, that lack character.

Mike Williams seems to be coming into his own ...
I wondered if TO would go back to the 49ers to end his career

If he still is playing he'd want to be on a team with a chance. Doesn't seem like S.F. is that place.

good point

Move to Los Angeles, TO. Then wait for an NFL team to come to you.

He can do more "reality" tv. Like he lives in the real world anyway.

But is he wrong?

Is he "throwing his team under the bus"?

Or just being far more candid than any of us would be?
