When is it time for Terrel Owens, Randy Moss, and Chad Johnson to retire?  Does any team want them?  Do they have what it takes to be a NFL wide receiver again? Of course not!  They might catch a few balls here and there and may be a good offensive asset on a team, but what they lack is leadership.  Yea they can teach  players how to run a route, how to read coverages, but can they teach you how to be a winner?  HELL NO!  Can they teach players how to conduct themselves on and off the field?  HELL NAH!  Can they lead by example?  HECK NO!  Based on their history, as a NFL team you got to go Whitney Houston and say “HELLS TO THE NO!”

First, all of them need to stay away from social media, reality shows, or just being in the media (making news).  Chad can’t stay away from trouble or twitter. Clearly he tweets about everything else but football.  Would you want that on your hopefully budding franchise?  Then you have Randy who is probably sitting in corner somewhere saying to himself “I’m the best receiver in the league”, yet alligator arms passes in the Super Bowl, and telling people how he pays off fines (“Straight Cash Homie”).  T.O is either bowling, playing softball, basketball, tennis, golf, diving off something, or maybe even playing badmitting for a charity event. With all the headaches and distractions, they have going on it’s no wonder nobody wants them.  Yet they are looking at the league and can’t understand why they don’t have a job.

Who knows what these guys are doing, or what they can bring to the table for a team.  Why would a team waste their time for an older, slower, or average hand receiver.  Remember that the G.O.A.T. Jerry Rice at an extended age led the Raiders to a Super Bowl appearance, but after the Raider stint, he couldn’t find a job as a starter.  Mike Shannahan was on record saying that Jerry would have started for his team if he wasn’t in his 40’s.  Now that is the greatest, and he had no outside issues, and he couldn’t get a job late in his career.  Then these guys have no chance, they might as well retire and move on because majority of teams needs are not a receiver especially an older one.

Either way all of them have question marks about their game and character.  Bringing unwanted attention, destroying locker rooms, or feeling they are above the team.  If they could have just kept their mouths closed, they might still have a job, instead of sitting at home (I bet Randy Moss is smoking a Blunt right now!)  Maybe it would have been different for them if they could have ever got the concept of there’s no “I” in team. Instead of the concept of there’s a “me, me, me”.  The thing that T.O., Moss, and Johnson love the most!

Veteran guys like them you just don’t need!

A great man once said “All I have in this world is my balls and my word and I don’t break them for no one.” –Tony Montana.

     We hear so many outspoken comments in sports that sometimes make you wish they never could speak.  Does their opinion change, once they apologize or does the organization (Harbaugh) make them break the words that come out of their mouths.

“Why don’t you try sticking your head up your ass? See if it fits”- Tony Montana.

     Chris Culliver of the 49ers made comments saying “We ain’t got no gay people on the team” and “can’t be with that sweet stuff” Now why would he say that?  As stupid as he sounds some people would agree with Culliver.  If there was a gay football player in the locker room some players would feel uncomfortable and maybe it would cause a distraction. The ignorant thought would be if I’m playing against or next to someone that thinks I’m sexy then that would be really gay and that would make me feel very uncomfortable.  At one point we talked about that very subject on UnSportsMenMic Conduct a month ago (Jason you need to find the episode and put it back up).

“I always tell the truth. Even when I lie.” – Tony Montana

     If your gangsta enough to say it, be gangsta enough to stand by it, Chris Culliver’s back track was almost as good as Deion in his Prime, because his comments officially made Primetime, so by apologizing and saying “that’s not what he feels in his heart” is a load.  I never want to doubt a man’s heart, but I’m not a believer.  We all know Harbaugh and the 49ers organization got in that ass and the PR made him apologize.  So are players really sorry for running their mouth?

“You don’t have the guts to be what you wanna be? You need people like me. You need people like me so you can point your fuckin’ fingers and say, “That’s the bad guy.”- Tony Montana

     So do athletes have to apologize for everything?  Why can’t players be like Terrell Owens and believe in what their and some of our grandmother’s told us and say how you feel?  It probably will cost you your job but it at least you’re Keeping It Real! #EvenifitGoesWrong.  If that’s how you feel then that’s how you feel.  We all can agree that sports and sexual orientation, politics, and sometime religion (Sorry Paster Ray) don’t mix.  You CAN’T make those comments ever, especially during media day of the SUPER BOWL! So in my opinion Chris Culliver gets the dumb award.  Take us out Tony:

“Say hello to my little friend”

 That friend is the ignorance of some individuals, and that ignorance hopefully will end like Scarface.
