ESPN's Ed Werder reports that Terrell Owens is unhappy with Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo.
In an article that surprises absolutely no one (except maybe Jerry Jones), ESPN's Ed Werder reports that Terrell Owens is unhappy with Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. For his next column, Werder will detail the sun's plans to rise in the east tomorrow morning.The gist of the piece is the standard "T.O. is unhappy with his quarterback" tale that we've read during Owens' days with Jeff Garcia and Donovan McNabb. The laundry list of grievances are the same: Romo is ignoring him, Romo is throwing more to the guys with whom he's more friendly, etc..
On the other side, the complaints that teammates have about Owens are identical to ones that were aired during his stints on other teams. Those antics include criticizing Romo in press conferences, demanding the ball and whining to coaches that he's overlooked.
While it's mostly boilerplate T.O., there are some fascinating nuggets in Werder's piece that touch on the tremendous insecurities of Owens. One of T.O.'s worries sounds like it's lifted from the diary of a 15-year old girl:
Owens feels that Romo and Witten -- close friends and road roommates who came to Dallas in the same offseason -- hold private meetings in which they create plays the two will use in upcoming games without including Owens in the conversations, according to a source who speaks regularly with Owens' teammates. Owens believes these discussions have worked to his detriment as Romo seeks to deliver the ball to Witten regardless of whether Owens is open.
That doesn't even make any sense. Romo and Witten are drawing up plays on cocktail napkins and then using them in games, unbeknownst to offensive coordinator Jason Garrett and all the other guys on the team who have to run routes and block on said plays? This isn't the 1985 NBA All-Star Game. Does Owens really, honestly think Romo is freezing him out?
Say what you will about Romo (I do), but nobody has ever doubted his desire to win; unlike, say, Terrell Owens'. What's T.O.'s next complaint going to be, that Romo writes too much on Miles Austin's Facebook wall?
There's another part of the article in which a source claims that T.O. is trying to convince "guys who just got here" (Roy Williams and Sam Hurd) that they should turn against Romo. It plays into the "T.O. as locker room cancer" theory, but ignores the fact that Sam Hurd has been on the Cowboys for three years.
Either way, this is exactly what the Cowboys should have expected when they signed Owens three years ago. T.O. is an All-Pro talent with a bush league attitude. The patience of the Cowboys is waning, which means that next year, the Terrell Owens circus might be playing elsewhere.

TO needs to change his diapers, stop whining and crying, suck it up and learn the meaning of the word team. If I was the Cowboys I would place him on the practise squad for the rest of this year and maybe even next year, till he learned that its not all about him."An Unarmed man can only flee from evil, and evil is not overcome by fleeing from it."

The Cowgirls deserve everything they get from T.O. LMAO at the situation.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"

Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.
Certainly there is no hunting like the hunting of man and those who have hunted armed men long enough and like it, never really care for anything else.

I think T.O. needs to learn his place, I watched something last night where he insulted Emmit Smith. Until he passes Jerry Rice in reception yards he needs to shut his pie hole.

T.O. only loves T.O. He will be happy only when every ball is thrown to him, whether he is covered or not.The strongest reason for the people to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against the tyranny of government.
That is why our masters in Washington are so anxious to disarm us. They are not afraid of criminals. They are afraid of a populace which cannot be subdued by tyrants.” – Jeff Cooper'

T.O = over rated
I've never seen another wide reciever drop balls like he does, and still be considered "great". If it wasn't for his mouth and the media attention he draws because of it, he'd be just an average wide receiver, maybe slightly above average on his good days.
