Terrell Owens Controversy. TO Complained To Tony Romo About Dallas Offense After Loss To Redskins.
NFL, Dumbass

Uh Oh. Apparently Terrell Owens Had A Few Words With Tony Romo After Sunday's Loss To Skins.

Yesterday we got word that TO was a bit miffed that Dallas only attempted to get him the ball 33% of the time on Sunday against the Redskins. Some people brushed it off as, so what, he was just kind of mad after the game, no big deal.

Well, it is a big deal. Why? Because it turns out that Owen was so pissed he not only went off in front of the media, but he apparently also went off on Tony Romo.

According to the Dallas Morning News:

Owens, despite having 18 passes thrown his way in the loss to Washington, had what was deemed a serious conversation about the offense with quarterback Tony Romo after the game, according to multiple sources.

If you think this was a conversation where both guys got to voice their opinions in a logical and measured way, you must have forgotten about TO's multiple episodes in Philly. Those "conversations" always seemed a bit one sided to me.

And as most you know, I'm a 49ers fan, so I saw Owens up close and personal during his early years. I witnessed first hand his ridiculous sideline explosion directed at 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Knapp.

Any time you have a conversation with TO, it isn't really a conversation, it's just him bitching at you endlessly. Greg Knapp knows that, Donovan McNabb knows that, and Tony Romo does now as well.

The most interesting thing about all of this is that if Owens actually cared about winning rather than himself - which he has claimed while he's been in a Cowboys uniform - then he'd realize that the Cowboys probably should have given the ball to Marion Barber more than 8 times on Sunday.

But here's the thing Dallas fans should be most worried about. As of right now, there are a lot of similarities between Owens' time with Philly and his time with Dallas. A great first year where he played his butt off and was a minimal distraction. But almost as soon as Year 2 started, he became a perpetual jackass of the highest order, and started going after his quarterback.

Just remember Dallas, it isn't going to get any better from here on out. Once TO's crossed the line, he never goes back.

Come on, there are basically three offensive positions that score points: QB, RB and WR (includes TE).  Since the QB is involved in each play that knocks it down to two other "scoring" positions.  Since Owens is the only receiver that should be allowed to get the ball, he should get about 50% of the plays going to him...right TO??

What a jerk!

Old habits have a way of repeating.

I'm looking at the past.  Everytime this has started for T.O. in the past, it has spelled out what is going to happen in the future.  He has only gotten worse.  So as a Cowboy fan, I don't know if it is an overreaction.  I wish I could have your confidence in the situation.  As it is though, I don't..  I hope you are right.  Right now, I just hope that on Sunday I don't see T.O.  yelling at Jason Garrett, or following Tony Romo up and down the sideline in his ear the whole time.  I guess we'll see.

Forget about TO.  The one who should be crying is running back M.B.III.  When you have one of the biggest offensive lines in the game and can't do better on the ground than they did against a good but not great Redskin front seven, that tells me your not utilizing your team strengths. 

True.......

Well looks like TO is about to sabotage his 3rd team. I mean for a guy who was the main target on 20 of 58 plays and is still crying. I wish he would STFU

It begins..  Two years of all smiles and tears..  All for his "Kortaback"..  Now, even though they are winning, thanks in large part to him, albeit sometimes because he is being double covered, he starts in with his cancerous rhetoric.. 
Send him away Jerry!  Send him away!  Quickly, before it spreads!
