On Tuesday the NFL Network aired Terrell Owens' workout, hoping to catch on with a team, proving that he still has all of the tools necessary to compete in the NFL after having knee surgery and stem cell treatment in Korea last month. Problem is, no one officially attached to an NFL team showed up, according to Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk.

Linday Soto was live on the scene and reported that no teams were confirmed to be in attendance, and that there wasn’t a single team’s scout in the area "unless somebody snuck in and isn’t wearing team gear." The workout took place on a high school field in Calabasas, California, and the stands were empty.

This of course had me recollecting. This time last year the Cincinnati Bengals were 2-4 with an offense of Carson Palmer, Terrell Owens and Chad Ochocinco that posted 132 points while the defense allowed 141 points. Bad, right?

Flash forward one year later. Terrell Owens is hurt and doesn't sign with another team (in case you decided to disregard the first paragraph), Chad Ochocinco is traded to the New England Patriots and Palmer is traded to the Oakland Raiders.

Now the Cincinnati Bengals are 4-2 with a rookie quarterback, rookie wide receiver and the team's 2008 second round pick that was virtually useless until the end of last year. All considered, the Bengals this year have outscored last year's "All Star" offense by five points through six games and the defense, more importantly, have allowed 30 less points.

Oh how times change.
