T.O. wallowing in his own martyrdom - AFC East - ESPN
Three weeks ago, I defended Owens' sense of humor when he jokingly told New England Patriots reporters on a conference call that he didn’t like Buffalo's no-huddle offense. Some outlets turned his off-handed comment into headlines that declared Owens hated the no-huddle.

Now Owens is acting like a victim, and this time I don't feel one bit moved.

Analysis of the Teams with Losing Records - John P. Lopez -
There is still hope in Buffalo. But when you step back and look at just how well the Bills have played in spurts, the soft upcoming schedule and the likelihood of key missing elements returning big, I'd bet on the Bills making a run before their division rival Dolphins, or even the 2-1 but struggling Patriots.

T.O. blames the media for his passive-aggressive routine |
By not answering questions about the passing game following the loss Sunday, Owens is up to his old tricks but in a passive-aggressive way.

Why Owens not giving the media much – Inside The Bills
It’s obvious the last thing Owens wants to be is a catalyst for problems in Buffalo’s locker room, knowing what the prevailing opinion is among fans about Owens as a teammate. So in his case saying less helps him and his teammates more.

How I See It: AFC East Stock Watch - AFC East - ESPN
Stock Falling: Terrell Owens. Through three games, Owens ranks fifth on the team with five receptions for 98 yards and one touchdown. Running back Fred Jackson has three times as many catches. Tight end Derek Schouman didn't play Sunday and is out for the season, but he has almost double Owens' total.

  • Stats of the Week No. 6: The Bills have more touchdowns from their defensive ends (2) than from Terrell Owens (1).
  • As for New Orleans, Buffalo showed the Saints' offense is not unstoppable, holding the visitors to 10 points through the first three quarters. If the Bills had anything even slightly better than a Pop Warner offense with ultra-timid coaching, they might have prevailed.
