This is funny stuff.
Terrell Owens said in an interview with Rogers Sportsnet (Canada) that he was “blindsided” when he was released by the Cowboys. “You hear all the speculation, and you talk to the owner of the team, and he reassures you, you’re not going anywhere and then, out of left-field … you get blindsided,” Owens said.
Blindsided? He must have been the only individual NOT to read a newspaper or watch an ESPN segment in the three weeks leading up to his release. How did everyone know that Owens was going to get cut, or at least heard of the possibility, and Owens himself did not? C’mon!
This is another pathetic, and typical, attempt by Terrell Owens to roll a former team/teammate under the bus. There is no one to blame but T.O. for the release of T.O. He is a cancer to a team, he’s getting old, and none of your teammates actually want you around (no matter what they may say to the media).
Well I didn’t consider the Buffalo Bills a potential home for the loud-mouth Terrell Owens, but I suppose it fits. The Bills do need wide receiver help but they don’t need someone like T.O. to completely hamper their young quarterback, Trent Edwards.
I would have rather seen T.O. go to Oakland, where receivers turn to crap during their tenure, but I guess we’ll have to wait and see with Buffalo. He received the expected one-year contract that will force him to either put up the big numbers he needs to get another contract or retire.
I just can’t wait to hear about all the people saying that Buffalo is the front-runner for the division, the conference, perhaps even the Super Bowl. You know it’s coming.
You know what I love? Trips to the beach, a ripe avocado, and anything awful that happens to Terrell Owens. So I hit two for three today, unfortunately no beach trip.
ESPN is reporting that the Dallas Cowboys have released wide receiver Terrell Owens. That’s right everyone, Jerry Jones released our personal gift from God. Oh how sweet it is! I made a prediction that the Cowboys would never win anything with Owens on that team. I then went on to say that Owens will never be a Super Bowl champ. And at this time, I think I might be on to something.
Finally, Jerry Jones had enough of Owens’ bad attitude, horrible character, and dropped passes. I’m glad to see that Jerry Jones has come to his senses and realized that he can’t save everyone. Adam Jones didn’t work out and neither did T.O., sorry Jerry. Owens is the worst case of cancer for any team lockerroom and the rest of the Dallas Cowboys are probably dancing in the streets after this wise move by the front office.
Where do the Cowboys go from here? Well, they traded everything but the kitchen sink to bring in Roy Williams, so he will likely be the guy. Anquan Boldin is still on the market as trade bait but the Cowboys really have nothing to offer. Marvin Harrison could be willing to come play for a players’ coach in Dallas. But who really knows? The Cowboys could stick with Williams and Crayton with hopes of a young guy stepping up.
What happens to Terrell Owens? He has great numbers with no Super Bowl rings; why not retire? I assume that T.O. will still believe that he has something to contribute to the game but who would risk having him in the lockerroom? Oakland would probably offer him a job! Maybe Belichick takes him under his wing?
Time will tell. I’m just estatic that T.O. is UNEMPLOYED!
Don’t get too excited but I think the front office in Dallas may have developed a few brain cells, perhaps an entire brain all together. ESPN has reported that the Cowboys are contemplating releasing Terrell Owens in the offseason. Say it aint so?!
Terrell Owens may be a Hall of Famer, but he needs to hang it up. Teams don’t want problems, teams want a positive future. T.O. isn’t in the plans for the future of a good Dallas organization. If Jerry Jones can bring himself down from the extremely high pedestal he places himself on, the release of T.O. will pay huge dividends for the franchise.
This may be the point in time where Jerry Jones begins to realize that he hasn’t won a playoff game in more than a decade. Maybe it’s something on his part? Maybe it’s the felons, punks, and cry babies? Quick, someone take note that Jerry Jones is doing something logical!
Now that the Dallas Cowboys are finally eliminated from playoff contention, that’s another year that continues to prove one of my picks correct (see above). It may not have seemed like T.O. was the Cowboys’ dimise throughout those last few games, but he certainly didn’t help the situation. The Cowboys need to be reevaluated and Jason Garrett should be promoted tomorrow. Whether he can handle the egos on that team or not are undetermined but there is no hope with butterball Wade Phillips. Phillips may be a great defensive mind and a successful guy for 33 years in the NFL, but he is the epitome of a “players’ coach”. It has been reported that Phillips and owner Jerry Jones have had their face-to-face meeting and Phillips will remain the coach but there’s no foolin’ this guy. Of course I could be wrong, we all could be, but I don’t think Wade Phillips is the head coach at the beginning of the 2009 season. This 2008 Dallas Cowboys team was one of, if not the, most talented teams in the league and they can’t even make the playoffs. One could argue that Romo’s injury hampered the entire offense throughout the season but I would mention the other 13 superstars as a counter. The point is, Dallas had the tools and they failed to execute, end of story. As long as Jerry Jones continues to bring in egos along with coaches that can’t control them, the team will never fufill its expectations.
In other wonderful Cowboy news, Bradie James roughed up a fan outside the Cowboys training facility after their horrific loss to Philadelphia on Sunday. Apparently the fan was toting a sign that implicated ‘lack of heart’ and ‘Wade Phillips is an embarassment’ which James didn’t like. James asked for him to take it off but the fan refused. James then took it upon himself to remove the sign and wound up busting the guy’s bifocals in the meantime. James then went into the locker room and came back with a pair of Oakleys that he kindly gave the fan he accosted and ended it with a handshake. No charges were filed and the fan was unharmed.
Later on, when James was questioned about the non-meeting that Phillips had with players on Monday and the fact that Phillips said he would make the “necessary changes”, James replied, “If you know a person to be a certain way and then all of a sudden you have an extreme change, I don’t know how well that’s going to be taken. I don’t know what he means by that. Like I said, he didn’t address us, so I don’t know. … Whatever needs to be done, I’m all for it.”
Good luck Mr. Phillips.
The same ol’ thing happens each and every year with Terrell Owens, he’s a cry baby. No matter what team he goes to, no matter how much he gets paid, no matter who throws the ball to him, he is NEVER satisfied and he is ALWAYS complaining.
In training camp, Owens spoke highly of Tony Romo and said that they had a great relationship. Now, after a down season thus far, Owens is crying about how Romo throws more to tight end Jason Witten than he does to Owens himself. The statistical breakdown in my eyes? Owens has 10 less catches than Witten. Owens drops passes, A LOT. Witten is a tight end and is used not only as a reciever, but also a check-down or dump-off at times. Romo throws more to Owens than Witten, but Jason Witten catches the passes – end of debate.
Owens needs to shut his mouth and play football. He is a horrible teammate, he poisons locker rooms, and he trashes teams from the ground up. Only Jerry Jones was dumb enough to give this idiot $34 million. Mark my words with this bold prediction, the Cowboys will not win a championship with Terrell Owens.
We all know about the blockbuster trade that occurred today, Detorit sending Roy Williams to the Dallas Cowboys. But has anyone seen what the Cowboys gave the Lions? The Cowboys gave the Lions four total picks, including a first-rounder in next year’s draft. The Lions also received a third and sixth-rounder in the 2009 draft with a 7th round pick in the 2010 draft.
I absolutely love Roy Williams. Not only is he an incredible receiver, but I’m a sucker for Texas Longhorns athletics. There’s no doubt that Roy Williams adds a threat and depth to this Cowboys team, but there is no way that the Cowboys get the better end of this deal. In fact, who ever took over Matt Millen’s old spot as GM of the Lions should receive an extension for stealing right from under Jerry Jones’ nose.
Reports say that T.O. is estatic about the trade for Williams, but that’s all a bunch of nothin’. Sure you can swing it and say that it will draw off the double teams of T.O., but what it really does is take touches away from other guys on the Cowboy offense. That means less touches for Witten (my fantasy team will hate that), less touches for Crayton (who sucks anyway), and less throws to crybaby Terrell.
This is a sign of desperation by Jerry Jones, and I couldn’t enjoy it more. The Cowboys are falling apart and Jerry feels it. I expect Roy Williams to put up good numbers, but they don’t make the Super Bowl. They miss the Super Bowl, Wade Phillips is fired, Jason Garrett is promoted to head coach, and Jerry Jones picks up another convict to add to the roster.
On the other hand, with all of the picks that they gain, Detroit could have a really great draft in 2009. Seeing as how much they suck so far this year, and a new GM, we can expect for the Lions to use their draft picks wisely instead of selecting eight wide receivers in seven rounds. I’m not saying the Lions are on the rise all of a sudden, but this could be the first move towards a positive rebuilding.
