    Sal Pal turning figurative shock jock by calling the biggest names he can overrated?

    Also, what big name receiver does produce in the playoffs? Especially beyond the wild card? Reggie Wayne comes to mind, but pretty much everyone has a drop-off in production, opposing defenses know to shut them down.

    Actually, look at TO's postseason stats. I like you, but you seem stupid trying to get attention, Sal Pal.

      Still, i think the part about him only caring for himself is kind of true...

        All of the stats that matter (0 Super Bowls, 4-7 playoff record) are called out. Actual production is in line with what you'd expect from a star WR. TO is a great player, but the information Sal Pal is giving is accurate.

          Also, if you read the bottom of the page on ESPN, it's an exerpt from Sal Pal's new book about overrated and underrated players. He's using the TO entry to be controversial and to draw attention to his book.

            So it's TO's fault that the 49ers, Eagles, and now Cowboys haven't won the Super Bowl?

            Heck, I'll give you the Cowboys last year maybe, but that's it. He delivered for the 04 Eagles, blame McNabb for the SB loss and for his jealousy of TO leading to a rift that fractured the entire team.

              So he is just copying Jayson Stark who made an Over/Underated book of baseball players... The only difference is that I respect Stark.

                I don't think that TO was purely the reason for these teams not winning the super bowl, but if you're calling yourself the best, you should be able to help your team make it to that eschelon. If TO was healthy in 2004-2005, it is very possible the Eagles would have won the Super Bowl. The Cowboys had all the pieces to win last year, but they didn't execute against the Giants down the stretch. When the chips came down, the defense crumbled, and TO didn't overcome double teams to make the catches that needed to be made.

                I think that after all of his BS over the years, there is enough of a track record to say that TO's personality has an effect on his teams' ability to come through in the crunch. 4-7 career in the playoffs. He gets his, but his teams don't win. That speaks a lot.

                  I think he is a great WR
                  but as good as Jerry Rice?

                    No one is saying he's as good as or better than Jerry Rice. Even TO has never said that.

                      Don't get me wrong, I hate the psychotic primadonna, but let's be reasonable with the blame placed on him.

                      Tony Romo hasn't been Tony Romo in the playoffs so far in his career, granted if Patrick Clayton could have actually caught a ball in his hands (and was anywhere near as good as Cowboys fans think he is) then Romo could very well have advanced past the Giants to a home NFCCG. And we all know what happens when Favre plays at Dallas.

                        I don't hate TO. I think he's overrated now, but for his career, his numbers stack up well. As a teammate, he may or may not be as bad as he's portrayed. I think this entry was written specifically to sell books.

                          In the first three paragraphs, Sal forgets that the game is a team sport. Yes, Terrell Owens is the blame that his teams didn't reach win a Super Bowl. The only real bad game Owens has had was against Green Bay in 1998 when he kept dropping balls. Other than that, it was really an entire team effort that was responsible in the losses.

                            Exactly... I don't like the post-season argument... It wasn't Owens' fault that Crayton and Fasano dropped two crucial balls or that Jacques Reeves was awful, allowing Manning to drive down field and score with just a couple of seconds left in the first half...
                            Maybe if one of these players did his job now we could've been talking about TO as a crucial player in the Cowboys road to Super Bowl... No one can blame TO for the loss against the Giants, he was doing his job.

                            And it's pretty unfair, as usual, to talk about the drops without mentioning that he was playing with a serious injury in his hand, last year...

                              The whole serious hand injury thing might be valid, but TO played through it and was still productive. It wasn't like he had the best hands in the league beforehand. TO hasn't been one to make ridiculously tough catches in traffic. He is a sick mismatch because of his power, quickness, and agility. His hands are not his strength.
