Quotable: Terrell Owens on Quarterbacks

Quotable: Terrell Owens on Quarterbacks

"I've always had a good relationship with quarterbacks.  I
know what type of person I am on the inside. I know who I am."

That was Terrell Owens last night after a tough loss to the Giants.  I promise this will be my last T.O. post for quite some time, but I felt the need to chime in and add some real commentary to the fun videos that have been posted.

I like Terrell Owens.  It's true.

I think he is fairly bonkers half
the time, but I honestly think he believes everything he says.  Perhaps
he is one of those people who, when discussing the past, will convince
himself that whatever he thinks it may have been like, then that is indeed
fact.  He probably really does believe he had a good relationship with
Donovan McNabb.

Did I get a kick out of watching T.O. squirm up there during his press
conference last night?  Absolutely.  Do I kind of feel bad for the
guy?  Sure, maybe a little.  Look at this picture.  That's sad.

I think there are three key points to be made when it comes to Terrell Owens today:

1.) He is one heck of a football player and a true gamer.  Many athletes wouldn't have even suited up yesterday.
2.) At times, he is a lunatic.  But he is one entertaining lunatic.
3.) He's a Cowboy.  Nobody who calls themselves an Eagles fan can ever root for a Cowboy.

Temple names Keith Gaither wide receivers coach

Temple head coach Geoff Collins on Monday added two new members to his coaching staff.

Keith Gaither will take over as the wide receivers’ coach and Kyle Lane is the new video coordinator. 

Gaither comes to Temple with 21 years of coaching experience. He spent last season as Army's wide receivers coach. Prior to that, he spent time with Tusculum College (1998-99), Thomasville City Schools (2000-04), Winston-Salem State (2005-08), Elon (2009-10) and Ball State (2010-14).

Gaither spent his collegiate career at Elon, where he was a four-year starter and voted all-region at defensive end before graduating in 1997. Collins originally had retained Frisman Jackson from the 2016 staff, but Jackson was hired by the Tennessee Titans. 

Lane is a Temple alum who spent time with Kansas during the 2016 season as its assistant video coordinator.

Soul sign DL John Sheehy, OL John King

The Soul on Monday signed two players from their recent open tryouts, defensive lineman John Sheehy and offensive lineman John King.

Sheehy (6-5, 260), primarily a defensive end at Western Texas A&M, appeared in 13 games with the Buffalos during the 2013 season recording 16.0 tackles, 2.5 tackles for a loss of 16 yards and 1.5 sacks. He spent his 2014 season and a redshirt because of injury. He returned in the 2015 season posting 25.0 total tackles, 2.5 tackles for a total loss of 10 yards and one sack. 

“Finding guys like John is what makes hosting these tryouts well worth the effort,” head coach Clint Dolezel said in a statement. “Getting to the quarterback has to be a priority in arena football and I believe John has the skillset to be a great AFL pass rusher.”

King (6-8, 320) started 34 at Buffalo and was the Bulls' starting right tackle his last two seasons.

“With the addition of John to our offensive line, we will be able to continue our success of leading the league in fewest quarterback sacks," Dolezel said. “Each year we produce at least one All-Arena offensive lineman and I believe John has the qualities to reach that caliber.”
