That sounds like a draw on paper, but we believe Owens took another step backward overall after last week's disastrous preseason outing. T.O. didn't fight for one ball thrown to him deep down the sideline. He dropped another pass on a play that was erased by an unrelated penalty.

Edwards has been with the Seahawks for a slightly longer time than Owens. He reportedly has outplayed Owens in practice and hasn't been as demonstrative when things don't go smoothly. It's unlikely there is room for both Edwards and Owens on the Seahawks' roster, and T.O. just hasn't shown enough to make us believe he'll make the team.
