T.O. Headlines the Hall of Fame Game

Following the Hall of Fame ceremony, NFL fans will be treated to the annual Hall of Fame game.

This year, in celebration of the AFL’s 50th year, the NFL is honoring it’s former competitor with 16 Legacy Games, beginning with Sunday’s game between the Buffalo Bills and Tennessee Titans, or as they were known during their AFL days, the Houston Oilers.

However, for many this Sunday’s game will be about the presence of Terrell Owens. After being released by the Dallas Cowboys earlier in the year, T.O. was quickly grabbed by the Bills several days later. Since then, he has been visible in every other way. He was part of ABC’s Superstars which brought together celebrities and athletes. Also, he is now part of VH1s’ The T.O. Show. He might be enjoying his celebrity status and reality programming, but if there’s one thing he shouldn’t do, it’s count out the Titans, even if it’s a preseason game.

The Titans finished with a league best 13-3 record last year, behind the play of veteran QB Kerry Collins and a ferocious defense. Don’t be surprised to see Kyle Vanden Bosch, Keith Bulluck, Nick Harper, or Owen’s former teammate Javon Kearse aiming to make an impact at T.O.’s expense. Behind coach Jeff Fisher, the Titans will be expected to start right out of the gates and shut down the Bills.

Love him, or hate him, there is no denying T.O.’s unbelievable skills. He is a star receiver and an unbelievable personality. If he is on your team, he is your favorite player. Playing against you, you want to see a defender take his head off. Patriots fans will have to wait until the season opener at Gillette Stadium to see him live. However, this Sunday will be the first look at Terrell in his new environment. Lets just hope the Titans just leave some for later.
