No and no.
So Terrell Owens saying he can make a play and wants the ball is an example of him being bad for a team? Do you think Michael Jordan thought that he could make a play? Kobe Bryant? What about Jerry Rice?
Speaking of Jerry Rice, do you remember what he said after the Saints game in 1998? A game that the Niners won 31-20....bringing their record to 8-3 on the season? After catching 3 balls during the game he said:
"Maybe I've been spoiled over the years, but this is not 49ers football. Or maybe the Man's giving me a sign. If you ask me if I'm having a good time, no. Is this something that might want to make you retire? Hell, yes. All I know is I'm not having a good time. Maybe it's time for me to move on."
TO gets blasted by the media and public for saying he can make a play, yet comments like this from Rice go unnoticed? I bet at least 75% of the people who are reading this post either dont believe that Rice said that, or dont remember/care.
