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 didnt 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 cant move them from their way of thought. What a great guy. I want him on my team.
