Man, that seems like such a long time ago when TO was crying for his quarterback, Tony Romo. Now there are stories about jealously and general attention-whoring, which, for Terrell Owens, is awfully surprising. The story’s flash point came from who else but ESPN when they posted an article about Owens’ resentment towards the relationship of Tony Romo and Jason Witten.
There were a lot of revealing anonymous quotes that, if true, could be really damning to the rest of the Cowboys season. Examples:
After watching Terrell Owens all these years, it’s still really hard to get a bead on how he really feels, unless, of course, he’s not happy with the way he’s being used. If TO isn’t happy, he’s not afraid to let everyone who will listen know how he feels, even if it’s a distraction to his team. After the Cowboys lost to the Redskins on Sunday, Owens let the media know he wasn’t being used correctly, even though close to 20 offensive plays went his way.
The types of routes and throws are what concerns Owens, the sources said. The receiver, who the sources said was venting to Romo about his frustrations, has not liked how some of the throws were coming from the quarterback as far back as the season opener.
But Owens said Sunday he is still confident in Romo.
Is this the same kind of confidence Owens had in Donovan McNabb? Furthermore, how long will this “confidence” last if Romo doesn’t look TO’s way when Owens thinks he should? If the past is anything to go on, it wouldn’t be surprising if Dallas’ chemistry situation gets worse before it gets better.
Lastly, it’s nice to see TO stick by his “I love me some me” mantra. I wonder how long Dallas fans will share that sentiment — especially if Owens continues to put himself ahead of the team.
