Default Owens: Parcells’ retirement ‘was needed’

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/16763968/

Terrell Owens says that Bill Parcells' retirement can only be a good thing for the Cowboys, according to a report in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Speaking to the newspaper from Miami, where he is recovering from finger surgery, Owens said his play, and that of the Cowboys, was disappointing in the past season. He said the results are partly attributed to Parcells.

“I am just hoping his retirement brings promise to what the team has to offer,” Owens said. “This past year was a big letdown. On paper we were as good as anybody we played against every week. The end result didn’t show that. Our play was not indicative of what we could have done. What we should have done. Hopefully, the owner will hire a coach to take the team to the next level.”

T.O. said that Parcells fostered an unhealthy locker room environment.

“Sometimes change is good,” Owens told the paper. “ I think it was needed.”

Owens said Parcells sometimes wouldn't talk to him for weeks, and did not offer and words of encouragement after his accidental overdose.

“Coming into this season and this situation, I wanted to be positive,” Owens told the Star-Telegram. “When I talked to him for the first time we left an impression on each other. I still think he is a great guy. But he is like my grandmother. You love the person, but they are stuck in their old-school ways. You can’t move them from their way of thought.”


What a great guy. I want him on my team.

Owens is just sucking in the reporters. The reporters have been "sucked" as Parcells said earlier in the year. TO is just teasing the press. I still would not want him on my team.

The real question is this:

Is T.O. a genius or is he just really this dumb?

Does he do this on purpose because he knows he will get the media going or is he really just this much of a jack*** who only cares about himself?

Default Re: Owens: Parcells’ retirement ‘was needed’

you know i want to say i am suprised but i am not.

The next coach has his hands really full. He to deal with the aftermath of Romo and having to build him back up. I still think the kid has all the tools and intangibles. He has to help out that Oline somehow wether that id drafting or FA. I think the defense wil lbe fine...i think what didn't help and... i am kinda suprised to say this myself but the loss of Greg Ellis hurt them. Not sure about their needs at free safety either...Lewis might want Dallas over Houston.

Then there's Owens. I thought before this year Dallas was the only place he'd go and be productive only because Bill Parcells despite what you might say about him is a guy that is repsected by player and coaches around the league and has a winning history. That's what Kept TO inline this year. I am not so sure the next coach will be so lucky....or he might opt for the Reid Treatment(which i LOVED) and if midseason he becomes a blantant distraction and locker room cancer. Sit him the rest of the year.

Add to all that the late start the Tuna gave them on head coach hunting Season......If Jerry incapacitated himself...JJ might go back Ala Gibbs.

Jimmy has already said he loves the life he has now and he will not be back.

I suspect Jerry will go after a coordinator on another team such as Rivera or I've even heard Singletary's name mentioned.

I don't think he'll look for a college guy unless it's Stoops who I've heard Jerry has liked for some years.

Jerry has deep pockets. I think he'll spend whatever it takes to get whoever he wants.

I can understand TO's opinion, and especially how it relates to his grandmother's way of doing things. The woman was harsh, and mean as **ll, but he still respected and loved her. However, candid comments aren't appreciated in these types of circumstances, therefore, it is best to stay mum, not for the sake of the truth, but to cover his own behind. This is especially true in TO's situation when he is already carrying a truckload of baggage.

I'm usually one to defend Terrell, but what he did is just cowardly.

TO is a jackass, his dropped passes is probably what cost the Cowboys their NFC East title and a home game in the playoffs.

You see, the dropped passes were Parcells' fault. Had he held TOs hands some more, he might not have injured his fingers.

Parcells picked out the slippery ball for Romo.

Ongoing war in Iraq. Parcells fault.

Not really. Remember before Antonio Bryant was traded, he and Parcells had a dispute. He had to be restrained by security and led away from Parcells after throwing some dirty laundry at him during minicamp.

I read that Bryant was a hothead, but nevertheless, all hasn't always been rosy in the locker room.
