Excuses, excuses. … There is speculation that Terrell Owens may be on his way out of Big D. I personally don’t believe that. I have always felt there was a conspiracy to blame T.O. as the source of the Cowboys’ woes.
For the record, let me state that T.O. is a different kind of cat. And like every great receiver I know, including Jerry Rice, Michael Irvin, Marvin Harrison and Randy Moss, just to name a few, T.O. is an unhappy camper if he’s not getting the rock.
Upon talking to some of the Cowboys over the last few weeks, it is clear that while excitable, T.O. is not deemed the problem among the players. Well, there may be a certain player who shall remain nameless that might have a problem with the “I love me some me” kid. Why? Because Owens is too honest for his own good.
According to some members of the media, Owens was being divisive because he pointed out what most of the national media was saying: “The vaunted Cowboys offense has gone stale.”
The irony is that if Peyton Manning would have made the observation, the world would have taken it at face value. Why is that? Because of T.O.’s baggage.
Baggage is something Owens will have to deal with because he made that bed. However, it’s time to place the credit and blame where it belongs. The success and failure of the Cowboys is squarely on the consistent play of the one that shall remain nameless. The media has planted the seed in the head of the nameless one that things would be better if T.O. was not on the roster.
A word of caution: If T.O. gets his walking papers, nothing will change because Roy Williams will call out his quarterback just like he did in Detroit. The only resolution to this equation is for the guy with the famous girlfriend to play in December and January like he plays in September.
