Dear Terrell Owens

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Go Away Now. Please.

Yes, I'm a Cowboys fan.

“I was underutilized in the offense,” Owens said. “A new coach can be good for the Cowboys. It’s not just me. But my teammates know I could have done more. I wasn’t used as a No. 1 receiver. If you don’t involve a guy, that person is not going to be as productive as he can be. That’s how I felt.”

Any guesses out there as to who led the league (going away) in dropped passes, including a couple in the end zone?

Never wanted him, hope he's gone soon. (Hey Raiders, how about the other bookend to match Randy Moss? Cheap!!!)

What a complete tool he is.

Jones should be ashamed of his decision to bring BO, er, TO in.

TO should have been an NBA star where he would have fit right in with all the other prima donnas. I'm sure the Knicks would have signed him to a long term contract.

A man with so many gifts, and yet he is poor.

TO = classic coach killer, goodbye Tuna. Dallas Jones, TO and Cowboys suck. ... that's just for you, ryan.

250 million gifts....or whatever the exact number was that his brilliant publicist used after the "accidental" OD incident.

If it makes you feel any better, Ryan, having TO ruin a team actually makes me like them better. For example, I never liked Philly (I'm a Steelers fan...), and then when TO did his thing and left, I found my self rooting for them. I also don't particularly like Dallas (I'm a Steelers fan), but I am sure when he leaves their organization in tatters I will find myself pulling for them...unless we meet in another SuperBowl.

In related news, Norv Turner's surfaced as the leading candidate for the Cowboys job. Turner's known as a great offensive mind and is credited (by Aikman) as being a great pick to develop Romo, as he did Aikman.

But...he's been a disaster as a head coach everywhere he's been. In Washington he was continually hammered for not being tough enough with the players. TO will have a field day with him if he actually gets the job.

It's amazing how easy it is to be a great offensive mind when you have Troy Aikman throwing, Emmitt Smith running and one of the best offensive lines in history plowing the road. I hope Turner gets the Dallas job if only so I can watch the Cowgirls and Jerry Jones crash and burn in spectacular fashion.

I lived in DC during the Norv Turner era. The man is an incompetent buffoon. His post-game press-conferences always began with "I thought we did some nice things today". No matter how badly his teams would get annihilated -- "we did some nice things today".

ryan, did you get that Mike Aswell is a Steelers fan? Give up your Dallas Jones and root for a winner. Even in mediocre season the Steelers are still winners, there will never be a TO wearing Black and Gold, witness that budding prima donna that now plays for the Giants..... what was his name, oh yeah, Burr-in-my-ass.

Cowboys fans can thank Jackie Smith for one of those two loses.

i figured that photo would be the same as taking attendance here.

coach, re jackie smith...we remember the heroes easily enough; i am far more intrigued by how the participants who erred under such a spotlight get on with their lives. oftentimes, not so well. regardless, most of us can recall our own dropped passes in the end zone. i guess therein lies part of the attraction of sport, easily (and rightfully) dismissed as trivial and mere entertainment.

that commercial that has michael jordan missing the jumper against utah, and dwight clark dropping that pass in the end zone against the...ack, can't say it...kind of hints at the flipside of sport "moments."

btw, i'll be watching sunday's game with a guy i work with, a diehard steeler fan.

Wasn't the "Jackie Smith drop" game the same one where Rocky Blier made some acrobatic catch in the end zone as well?

i.e., Jackie dropped one that he should have caught and Rocky caught one that he should have dropped.

I think Coach is trying to bait me here. You know that Jackie dropped that pass in the third quarter. To blame that lose on Jackie is just wrong. Why not blame it on Randy White for fumbling a kick off that lead to a second Steelers TD on the next play. Better yet, blame it on the refs for calling pass interference on the series before that lead to Franco's 22 yard TD run. You know, the Steelers never won any of those games, it was all a gift from bad calls and the other team's bad pay, just like last year.:
post #20 of 21
Nice link, ryan. Most of that great team was very similar in that they were a team first. Franco still lives in town and spent time to autograph my 9 year old son's football and Steelers ballcap recently. Joe Greene was always approachable but you had to be careful around Lambert.

As the Klingons say, the Cowboys are a worthy opponent.

(sorry to rant on, i can't help it)

When I lived in Dallas in the early 80s there was a popular urban legend that the refs for that game admitted to taking bribes from the mob. Nobody ever saw the confessions on TV but knew someone who had.
