Keyshawn Needs to Quickly Learn His Place

I am truly at a loss for words when I see what I saw on NFL Live this afternoon.  I’m sure we’ve all seen it already.  Keyshawn Johnson, the former "accomplished" NFL receiver, took unjustified shots at Terrell Owens for some extremely general comments he made about Bill Parcells. 

After being blindsided by Keyshawn’s ridiculous comments, Terrell Owens defended himself and his team.  But already, TO is being made out by ESPN to be a coach killer and a team destroyer, again. 

This is simply preposterous.  Keyshawn Johnson?  THE Keyshawn Johnson is telling an NFL player to "let it go?"  The Keyshawn Johnson that wrote the book entitled Throw Me the Damn Ball?  The Keyshawn Johnson who was constantly at his former coach Jon Gruden’s throat?  The Keyshawn Johnson who was suspended by his team for half the year because he wouldn’t shut up?  It’s simply unbelievable that anyone with those types of accolades would criticize another NFL player for simply defending his current team and embracing his coach.   

Now I’m sure many of you think that the reason Keyshawn is trying to put TO in his place is because of his deep respect and friendship with Bill Parcells.  And you very well might be right.  But Bill Parcells must have thought the world of Keyshawn, releasing him at the end of the 2006 season, and bringing in none other than Terrell Owens to take his place. 

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers must have thought alot of Keyshawn, especially after his half-year suspension.  They traded him to Dallas in return for Joey Galloway.  The Buccaneers certainly ridded themselves of a problem with that trade, and got a pretty good player in return. 

The Carolina Panthers must have thought alot of Keyshawn Johnson.  I remember Keyshawn covering the 2007 NFL draft, constantly talking about how excited he was for the upcoming season.  Then when Carolina selected USC wide receiver Dwayne Jarrett with their second round pick, Keyshawn raved about him and talked about how much of an honor it would be to "teach the kid the ropes."  The Panthers obviously wanted no part of that, releasing Keyshawn the next week. 

So Keyshawn Johnson, shut your mouth.  You fit in extremely well with the rest of ESPN’s sorry cast of "analysts" who sit there with smirks on their faces and act like they know what they’re talking about.  You can sit on your couch with your popcorn and watch the best wide receiver in the league make your career as well as your analysis look like a joke. 

No worries TO, I got your back.

    Keyshawn Johnson should shut up, but he never will. It’s because of his big mouth that he wrote that ridiculous book even before he ever made his first NFL catch, and why he got a job on ESPN. The only reason he has that job is because controversy means high ratings and ESPN knows that Keyshawn will always have something stupid and controversial to say. Great blog.

    Keyshawn is such a joke. If he was half the man T.O. was he would learn some respect. But I guess thats what ESPN pays Keyshawn to do, talk sh*t.
    Funny how they try to put Keyshawn and Parcells together on the program. And how they are always trying to get Parcells to say something negative about Dallas.
    I like T.O.’s challenge, can’t wait to see KJ’s response to that lol.

    I agree totally. Keyshawn is the pot calling the kettle black. I was so glad to get rid of him. Now I have to watch him on TV. He needs to take a look at his past and rethink his actions towards current players.
