Terrell Owens came into Friday night's game needing to make some noise. Braylon Edwards reportedly has outplayed Owens in practice, without all the histrionics when things don't go his way. T.O. probably didn't change anyone's mind with his performance.
Despite the numbers, we believe Owens took another step backward 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.
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. Here's what else we learned during Friday's six-pack of games.
Aside from occasionally holding the ball too long, Wilson looks like a veteran ... an electric veteran. Matt Flynn didn't even play because of an elbow injury.
» Wilson's preseason stats through three games: 35-of-52 (67.3 percent) for 464 yards (8.9 YPA), five touchdowns and one interception. He has rushed 10 times for 150 yards and a score. Wow.
» Ryan Tannehill looked better than his woeful numbers would indicate, but this outing was a reminder of how difficult his task will be as a rookie quarterback. His receivers can't catch or get open. It is an offense without any difference-makers.
» Eagles quarterback Nick Foles, a third-round draft pick, continues to play extremely well. He has a great arm and has shown surprising accuracy. He easily outplayed Weeden despite an early interception. Foles has completed a lot of difficult throws. Don't be surprised if he passes Mike Kafka on the depth chart and becomes a favorite of Eagles fans.
» The Buccaneers' starters played well overall, but this will still go down as a terrible night in Tampa. Pro Bowl guard Davin Josephwill miss the season with a knee injury, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Defensive linemen Adrian Clayborne and Gerald McCoyalso went to the locker room with injuries. This is not a roster that can afford many injuries to quality starters.
» The offensive line has been a major issue for the Patriots all camp. Brady played deep into the third quarter to get something positive going.
» Josh Freeman has looked very rough around the edges in a new offense all preseason. That continued Friday night with 102 yards on 19 attempts.
