If there were ever two NFL players perfectly MFEO, Chad Johnson and Terrell Owens were them. These guys are on the same mental level and will probably cancel each other out in the Bengals locker room with all their idiocy. That’s why it wasn’t at all surprising to read that T.O. supposedly missed his flight to Cincinnati Wednesday night because he was busy working on developing his iPhone app. At least that’s the story coming from the New York Post and I’m guessing they got the story from the app developers. Why is that? Because they gave the company’s name a plug in their Page Six report.
The part about Owens missing his flight is fact — confirmed by Terrell himself. Though he did not make it to the Nati in time for practice on Thursday morning, he arrived in time to participate in the evening practice.
While many people are concerned about the combustibility factor in the Bengals locker room, we think the onus for the offense now falls on quarterback Carson Palmer. Chad and Terrell are the perfect match and they’ll be busy keeping each other occupied as they compete for more twitter followers and better end zone celebrations. Their Cincinnati story will have a happy ending. The Bengals? That’s a different question. An NFC North repeat is possible, but they won’t be Super Bowl contenders.
