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:
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.
