Yes, for the zillionth time in his career, Cowboys receiver Terrell Owens has voiced a complaint about not being more involved in the offense. simpson2.jpg
This, in spite of the fact he figured on 20 of the Cowboys’ 58 offensive plays they ran against the Redskins yesterday. He was thrown to 18 times and had two rushing attempts for 11 yards.
He finished with seven catches for 71 yards, including a touchdown.
Asked if he got the ball enough in the Cowboys’ loss, Owens said: “I would say no. I’m a competitor, and I want the ball. Everybody recognized that I wasn’t really getting the ball in the first half. I’m pretty sure everybody watching the game recognized it, people in the stands recognized it. I think my team recognized it. I didn’t quit. I kept fighting and trying to keep running my routes and trying to get open.”
Welcome to the beginning of the Cowboys coming unglued. It probably won’t happen all at once, but with a team of me-first guys – topped by Owens – it’s bound to happen eventually.
On a personal note, I’d like to thank Mr. Owens for spouting off after the game. After all, it’s the end of the month, we’re always glad for more page views, and Owens is Google search engine magnet when it comes to getting hits. The only more effective way to draw page views for Cowboys’ stuff is to mention Jessica Simpson … and … well … we just did.
