Leave it to Terrell Owens to choose to become the first person to celebrate being inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame somewhere other than at the Canton , Ohio shrine.The receiver who provided so many exhilarating and exasperating moments during one of the NFL's most prolific careers is about 600 miles away from Canton this weekend. Hours before the other inductees are honored, Owens will give his own acceptance speech at Chattanooga , where he played college football and basketball and ran track.Owens announced on Twitter in June that, while "incredibly appreciative," he wouldn't attend the induction ceremony. Owens never shared his reasons for staying away. Less than a month later, Owens again used social media to say he'd hold his own induction ceremony in Chattanooga."Getcha popcorn ready!" wrote the man who once celebrated a touchdown with popcorn.Owens said Friday in Chattanooga there's a "flaw in that system" about how Hall of Famers are selected and he wanted to "make a stand" for future candidates. Owens, who wasn't selected to the Hall of Fame until his third year of eligibility, noted how grateful he was to accept this honor "right here where it all began."He's been quite chatty on social media in the weeks leading up to his induction. Owens tweeted that he "wouldn't have a PRO career if it wasn't for Chattanooga #THISISFORYOU." When asked why he's bypassing the Canton ceremony, Owens tweeted that "I don't need to be on their stage to do it. I'll be fine & im sure they will be too."Chattanooga remains a place where Owens is loved for what he accomplished well before becoming an NFL star. Owens had 2,320 career yards receiving in college and also played basketball on two NCAA Tournament teams before the San Francisco 49ers selected him in the third round of the 1996 draft.In the NFL, Owens strung together numerous antics ó posing on the Dallas Cowboys' star logo at midfield, engaging in sideline tirades ó with five teams over 15 seasons. But his college coaches marveled at his work ethic and considered him fun to coach."First guy (on the field) Youth Travis Frederick Jersey , last guy off," former Chattanooga football coach Buddy Green said. "He worked hard, man. He tried to get better every practice. You'd put him on a special team, and he was the first guy down the field. He just loved to play the game. He was great to coach. He worked as hard as anybody on the field, even harder probably."Mack McCarthy coached Chattanooga basketball during Owens' years on campus and remembers a guy who could come off the bench and defend at any position."He could not have been a better teammate," McCarthy said. "He couldn't have been better to coach."Owens has a busy weekend planned for his return to campus.He spoke to Chattanooga's current student-athletes Friday morning and also took 35 area youths on a shopping spree . Athletic director Mark Wharton said the school will have a private dinner for him Friday night and estimates about 2,000 people will gather at McKenzie Arena for Owens' induction speech Saturday afternoon.Plans to celebrate Owens' Hall of Fame career in Chattanooga had been in the works since March. That's when Wharton attended Owens' induction into the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame and heard some of the receiver's stories from his college days for over an hour."From there, his team started saying fairly immediately that he wanted to do something in Chattanooga round the Hall of Fame," Wharton said. "I assumed ó we all assumed (since) nobody's not gone to Canton ó we assumed and started planning for the weekend before. Then in May or so, Terrell notified all of us his desires to have it here."Owens' decision to avoid Canton has been called a mistake by Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, Owens' former boss who was inducted into the Hall of Famer last year. Several former players and Hall of Famers also have criticized Owens.The Pro Football Hall of Fame still will honor Owens as part of the weekend festivities. Owens, who ranks second in NFL history in career yards receiving (15 Youth Cole Beasley Jersey ,934) and third in touchdown catches (153) , will be part of the 2018 class exhibit with his picture on a light standard at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium and his own glass locker.Hall of Fame President David Baker called Owens' decision unprecedented and disappointing ."We respect he has strong feelings of his own and I respect his right to make that decision," Baker said. "I invited him to the hall, even at the last moment he would be welcomed, and he is welcomed every day the rest of his life. Even though he is not here, we will honor him to the best of our ability."Owens has never wavered. He retweeted someone who noted any message he provides in his induction speech would be heard by many more people in Canton rather than Chattanooga."This choice wasn't made for the millions," Owens replied via Twitter . "It was made for the ones that matter."AP Pro Football Writer Barry Wilner contributed to this report.After the first two weeks of the 2018 season, Cowboys second in the league in sacks This Dallas Cowboys defense is good.We wanted to believe it heading into the season and now after two impressive showings, this is becoming more and more a reality. After holding rookie running back sensation Saquon Barkley to only 28 yards rushing and All-World receiving spectacle Odell Beckham Jr. to just four catches for 51 yards, the Cowboys defense has taken a stand. Oh yeah, they also sacked Eli Manning six times.There are a lot of reasons to feel good about this defense. For example...Despite a very unimpressive showing by the teamís star linebacker Sean Lee, the Cowboys LB group has been tenacious getting after the ball carrier. Lee missed some reps against the Giants Youth Demarcus Lawrence Jersey , yet the defense never missed a beat. The combination of Jaylon Smith, Leighton Vander Esch, and even Damien Wilson have been very reliable so far.Despite the front office not trading for the talented All-Pro safety Earl Thomas, the Cowboys safeties have not budged. Not only are they not a liability like some of us worried about, but they are playing well. The Cowboys defense is top five in passing yards allowed so far this season with an average of just 183 yards against them. And they are top three in efficiency, only allowing an average of 5.3 yards per attempt, a trend that continues to get better ever since they remodeled their secondary last year.The Cowboys defense is also ranked third in points allowed as they are only giving up an average of 14.5 points per game. How is all of this happening?While itís a collective group doing the damage, it all starts up front and right now the Cowboys defensive line rotation is getting it done. I know itís early, but the Cowboys are currently second in the league in sacks with nine. Last year, Dallas was ranked in the middle of the pack with 38 sacks. With nine already in the books this year, thereís a good chance they improve on their sack total from last season.And itís not just one player getting the job done. Of the nine sacks, eight different players have sacks.Defensive tackles Maliek Collins , Tyrone Crawford, and newcomer Antwaun Woods each have one. The Cowboys have a great interior line rotation going and that doesnít even include the fact that David Irving (suspension) and Datone Jones (knee) will be returning soon.Second-year defensive end Taco Charlton has looked sharp so far this season and is showing a jump in ability that Cowboys fans were hoping for.And of course, thereís last yearís breakout sack-maker DeMarcus Lawrence who is the only Cowboys player with multiple sacks this year. Heís picking up where he left off last season and itís becoming more and more clear that the Cowboys front office will be handing him a big check next offseason.While the defensive line has been playing great, theyíre not the only ones getting in on the sackfest as Jaylon Smith, Damien Wilson, and Kavon Frazier each have a sack as well. Rod Marinelli has been dialing up more blitzes and the team is making them count. With strong play from their defensive backs, maybe Marinelli trusts his guys more to handle the back end while he sends extra pressure? And the good news is, it looks like more is on the way!We have to be happy about what weíve seen from this Cowboys defense so far. The battle in the AFC may go through Sacksonville this season, but if these Hot Boyz keep playing like they have been, post-season play certainly will be in Cowboys future.
