[url]Cowboys coach Bill Parcells approached trainer Jim Maurer and pointedly said, "Look, you tell Terrell that tomorrow I want him out here for practice. Tomorrow's the day. I don't care. Tomorrow's the day."

Why didn't Parcells say this to TO's face?:confused:

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones suggested last weekend that Owens needed to learn how to practice at less than 100 percent. The receiver insisted earlier this week that he knew only one way to practice - at full game speed.

Then earlier Wednesday, Bill Parcells reiterated that Owens needed to be back on the field.

And a couple of hours later, Owens was.

Parcells, who spoke only before practice, said perceptions that he was angry at the receiver were wrong.

"Can you get a little frustrated from time to time? Yeah," Parcells said. "But that's all. We'll see. Things will work out. ... I don't want to jeopardize the early part of the season by making a mistake here. I really don't."

You guys all blow this kind of stuff way out of proportion. Of course Bill probably told Terrell's face to face he wanted him back, but that doesn't mean a news reporter had to be right next to the two..

Parcells dogs his players every which way.. He knows everything about em', where their parents went to school, what their mascot was, etc. When asked about a rookie back in '03 about his chances for the team, he says- "Look, if Cason played a full load of 20 something carries, he would be in a coffin the next week."

I know alot of you dog ESPN for the ridiculous coverage on Terrell, but with threads like these popping up every week or so over here, they have a legitimate reason to do so I guess..

Being a Cowboy fan, it doesn't matter how old or if you were able to witness the Cowboy's greatness, it's all about embracing the history of the finest organization in the NFL. Sure I was young when the Cowboys rocked the NFL, but it's all about living for it, with such history as 5-Super Bowl rings, how could I ignore such a feat and only focus on the 1999 (when I started watching)- to present Cowboys? Outlandish claim to say the least.

When a team wins 5-Super Bowls compared to a regular season game 4 years ago, there really is no comparison. 5 Rings > Pointless victory over a 5-11 team 4 years ago.

"Why would I ever do that?" Parcells said, referring to his alleged conversation with trainer Jim Maurer. "Demanded?"

Aug. 17, 2006) -- Just when you think Terrell Owens and Randy Moss are going to be good citizens and become great teammates, you get slapped in the face with their temperamental antics again.

First in Dallas, Owens is auditioning for the Discovery cycling team. I don't doubt he has something wrong with his hamstring, albeit mild, and I know he isn't stupid -- although he did say he was misquoted in his own book. I have to believe that everything Owens does comes with a purpose and an agenda.

Could the much-speculated meltdown between Terrell Owens and Bill Parcells happen BEFORE Week 1?
Could the much-speculated meltdown between Terrell Owens and Bill Parcells happen BEFORE Week 1?
Now I know he's a great football player and I know Bill Parcells is a Hall of Fame coach, but T.O.'s latest circus act has got to be driving Parcells crazy. I've read reports where people want to compare Owens to former Parcells player Lawrence Taylor and how Parcells had two sets of rules: one for L.T. and the other for the rest of the team. We can say what we want about Taylor and his own book and his demons, but he was besieged by a drug addiction as opposed to Owens, who is addicted to himself.

Players like Owens obviously don't understand the significance of their actions. I really have wondered just how contrite Owens could be after his last debacle in Philadelphia, but with him wearing a Discovery Team cycling shirt and helmet, he's making a mockery out of Parcells and whatever rules the coach places upon injured players.

Many injured players are required to do some physical exercise while their teammates are out on the field practicing. New York Jets head coach Eric Mangini basically puts his injured players through triathlon training while their teammates are on the field. The message: don't get injured, because practice for injured players is going to be tougher than for those who are not injured.


So if Parcells does in fact have rules for his injured players and Owens knows those rules and shows up looking like he's competing in the Tour De France, he mocks Parcells and his rules by making a spectacle of himself -- truly disrespectful to a Hall of Fame coach. As far as the press is concerned, this is only going to get better, and the Parcells-Owens relationship is only going to get worse.

Besides, both NEW YORK teams could be named after the state, not the city. Who's to say?

T.O., TUNA WAR COMING?

A league source tells us that Cowboys receiver Terrell Owens is claiming that he has re-injured his hamstring, and he is blaming it on the fact that he was rushed back to practice before he was ready, and that he got too many reps during practice.

We're told that Owens is now taking the position that he won't be playing or practicing until he concludes that he is at 100 percent, and that he's privately saying that he might not be at 100 percent until the second week of the regular season.

The Cowboys are scheduled to have a one-hour walk through on Sunday morning in preparation for Monday night's game at the Saints. But since coach Bill Parcells has said that Owens won't play on Monday night due to the 14 practices that he missed due to the hamstring injury, it's unlikely that Owens will be expected to participate. The Cowboys are off on Tuesday, and resume practice on Wednesday.

Whether Owens is merely blowing smoke remains to be seen. But if he decides to take a pass on practice until he believes he's back to 100 percent, the stage will be set for all-out war between T.O. and the Tuna.

Just saw a clip on Sports Center.........Rosenhaus (TO's agent) essentially telling the media to bug off........that his client has a "serious injury" that was caused by the pushing by Parcells AND Stretch. Could this threat be not only a movie in the making, but possibly the saber rattling of a lawwwwwsuitttt in the drafting...........Forget the popcorn, pass me Clarrett's bullet proof vest.......I want to watch the action up close and personal.

TO is now saying that he has reinjured his hammy, and will not be playing until 100%...........probably not until the 2nd game of the season. And why did he reinjure himself?????...................it's ALL Tuna's fault. This looks like another BOOK of BLAME in the making. Meanwhile, all of us Girl "lovers" can sit back relax, and enjoy the previews of "the made-for-TV movie."

I think your following Terrell's case in Dallas more than I.. Terrell's just taking the proper pre-cautions to get himself ready for September 10th vs. Jacksonville. What's the point in risking a sore hammy for a couple of a series in a pre-season game? No harm in that, the guy doesn't need to prove anything, just relax and take it easy.

Mr. Rosenhaus was simply sticking up for Terrell reguarding the media's on-slaught of theories over a simple, common hamstring injury.

Terrell is a work-horse, you can call him selfish or whatever, but one thing's for sure, he goes all out, 100% of the time. You saw him playing in the Super Bowl with screws in his leg, why would he fake a hamstring injury in training camp? He's out to prove himself.

Philly fan here. Much the same as Dallas is now.

When he first came to the Eagles most everybody said here is the player we needed to get to the Super Bowl. One of the top receivers in the game, gives McNabb what he needed most, and remember McNabb recurited him at the pro bowl and had a lot to do with selling Reid and the FO to sign him.

The things that when on in SF where said to be "playing on a bad team", '' just didn't like Gracia" things like that. He wanted to be in Philly, he said so in public more then once. McNabb was his friend.

After his game in the Super Bowl, this guy could have owned Philly and beleive me when I tell you that is not an easy thing to do for someone playing on any Philly sports team. Didn't matter to him. What did matter is the money.

He said if he did not get the money he wanted he would disrupt training camp and the football team. He did what he said. Sent home from camp and liffed barbells in his driveway in New Jersey. Got kicked out and is gone.

What is so difference in lifting barbells in Mooristown, N.J. and riding a bike in Oxnard, Ca.? It is to disrupt, to take over and that is what it is all about with him. He has disrupted Dallas without ever playing a down for them.

Just what do you think he will do if Romo wins the starting job and Romo does not give this guy the passes he wants. He ripped McNabb in a book, and that was his friend.

I should love what is going on in Dallas as an Eagles fan, but I don't. I want to see the Cowboys and the Eagles play each other at their best, not with one team looking around wondering what this fool will do next.

His name is not used in this post for a reason. I don't think he is worth the effort to be mentioned by name.

I'm not quite sure what you're watching, but in no way is Terrell "disrupting Dallas." Seems the only people thinking that are people outside of the Cowboy's fanbase.. All it is is the media and you guys over-magnifying a simple hamstring injury, waiting for any controversey. The Cowboys, especially the defense, have looked real sharp this off-season, Terrell has taken young rookie Sam Hurd under his wing, things are going fine with the Cowboys.

A hamstring injury is serious. Any injury in football is serious, and should not be taken lightly, especially as a WR, who gets nailed everytime he catches a ball.

A hamstring that occurs in game like conditions is understandable. One that occurs during regular training exercises makes the conditioning and the conditioning program the culprit. It is interesting to now find out that TO's training regimen has been dictated by his personal team, the Girls team.......even during the formal preseason period. Looking at his personally prescribed conditioning regimen, it is easy to see why TO may not be in optimal condition. My first big suspicion that someone doesn't know what they're doing was when I heard of these strange hyperbaric "Michael Jackson" treatments for his hammy........never heard of this treatment having ANY significant proven effect for this type of problem. This piece (LINK) (http://blogcritics.org/archives/2006/08/22/200624.php)essentially leads you through the journey where TO has called the shots with his training and rehab, basically independent of the Girls input.........and Stretch et al have condescended to this stupidity. The same team that is responsible for TO's "conditioning" injury is now directing his rehab. I don't know who is more stupid.......TO for playing with his career, or the Girls for plaing with their investment. As has always been the case in the past, TO demands all CONTROL, but no RESPONSIBILITY...........as Stretch and company resigns themselves to kissing buuutttt in the delusional hopes of history not repeating itself.

INJURY MIGHT TIE TUNA'S HANDS

A league source raised with us on Tuesday night a great point -- and one of our readers echoed it this morning.

To the extent that the Cowboys would contemplate dumping Owens and his $5 million salary before it becomes fully guaranteed on the first weekend of the regular season, the fact that Owens has a hamstring injury that he claims was aggravated by a premature return to practice would result in either an injury settlement or a grievance, if he is cut before he is completely healed.

And maybe that's why (as we reported early Sunday) Owens is taking the position that he might not be 100 percent until the second week of the regular season, since even one game check obtained is worth nearly $300,000.

In fact, the recent statement by Jerry Jones that Owens might have another MRI on his hamstring could be part of a plan by the team to ensure that he's technically "healthy" before they make a final decision as to whether having T.O. and the intense media scrutiny that he attracts for the full course of a 17-week season is worth the headache.

We're not saying that they will let him go. But it would be stoopid not to at least consider it, given what has transpired over the past few weeks.

Meanwhile, kudos to the reader who pointed out to us this morning that, while Owens has missed 15 practices and counting with a "serious" hamstring pull that has yet to show any damage on an MRI, safety Keith Davis has been going strong despite having a bullet in his leg. link (http://www.profootballtalk.com/rumormill.htm)

A SECOND MRI performed yesterday has basically come back negative. The only finding was that of some fluid in the muscle. This is reflective of muscles with even the slightess of swelling, even a mild contusion.


Yesterday, Jim Rhome on his show had a very interesting take. He stated that Stretch made the statement not to worry that he, TO and Parcells were all on the "same page." Rhome came back with " That's ridiculous........they aren't even in the same book. The TO/Parcells standoff is coming to a boil as neither is truly backing off. Parcells is letting TO know that if he doesn't practice, he's not going to play him. TO in his usual passive-aggressive manner is essentially telling Parcells, you don't play me......I don't practice.

Maybe you all can't figure out who's going to win this one, but you can look at who's going to be the big loser (or should I say bigger "losers")..........the Girls should read The Book and substitute the word "Eagles" with "Girls"......and those who can't read can have someone who can, read it to them before bed time instead of the usual Grimm Fairy Tales.

It's just pretty funny how much y'all buy into the hype of the media. It's also hilarious reading the postings about how much Bush is going to suck and how Williams is going to be all pro (all of this based on two meaningless preseason games, where Bush had barely had any carries). People should wait for the actual season to start before assuming everything right now is how it's going to be for the rest of the year. TO is injured WOW what a controversy.

Unfortunately, he does not seem to have had any say in STRETCH's decision.

No doubt Parcells by now is ready to strangle both TO AND Stretch.

We all know how Parcells has his "complete control" issues when he coaches a team. If he decides that "to" is a detriment and wants to dump him prior to the season, if Jones doesn't let him you may have a situation where Parcells says "Up yours, I'm walking" and leaves. There are MAJOR egos competing here, no way this debacle lasts the whole season.

True but with a distinct difference. Both Tuna and Jerry want a winning football team, "to" wants attention and could care less about anything else. If Parcells feels that "the player" is not compatible with the team mindset and will screw up chemistry, then I think he would dump him in a heartbeat.
