So the Seattle Seahawks have signed enigmatic receiver Terrell Owen to a contract. He is added to a receiving corp that also includes Braylon Edwards. The San Francisco 49ers have Randy Moss, who is even more tempermental, as the postgame clubhouse spread is something that can even get him going.

The St. Louis Rams have a whole bunch of near nobodies. But at least they don't have to deal with the diva-like behavior.

San Francisco also has Michael Crabtree, who without the production at times wants to be in the same category as Moss or TO.

Bringing us to the Arizona Cardinals, you realize just how great it is to have the players we have on the team we root for. Larry Fitzgerald, Andre Roberts, Early Doucet and Michael Floyd. While the latter three have yet to be very good receivers, they all are unassuming and don't cause problems.

While signing Owens is, at this point, a low-risk thing, is Seattle ready for the person as well as the player? They don't have an established quarterback yet. Who will Owens cry for, calling him "his quarterback?"

Looking at Moss, you wonder how he will pay attention offensively with Alex smith throwing the ball and an offense that focuses on running the ball.

It almost makes you feel like the Cardinals are missing something -- some crazy.

All that is missing is Chad Johnson/Ochocinco/Johnson. He would round out perfectly the crazy trio of pass-catchers. Luckily for the Cards and the Rams, he is grabbing attention on South Beach on HBO's Hard Knocks with the Miami Dolphins.

But never fear, there is crazy coming up in the youth in the league. Mike Wallace of the Steelers very well could be a free agent after the season. He and his crazy train would make a great match in St. Louis. That would leave the Cardinals as the only corp without anyone certifiable.

And that is how we want to keep it.

Now if only we could figure out who is going to be throwing the ball to these guys.
