Pro Football Hall of Fame wide receiver Terrell Owens wants Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones to fire his head coach Jason Garrett after their latest lost.
After a 3-0 start, the Dallas Cowboys have fallen back to .500, as America’s Team has dropped its last three ball games. Their most recent defeat came on the road against the previously winless New York Jets. Gang Green had its starting quarterback Sam Darnold back under center, but the Cowboys have looked inert the last three weeks. Former Cowboy Terrell Owens has had enough.
Owens, a Pro Football Hall of Fame wide receiver, spent three years in Dallas playing for the Cowboys from 2006 to 2008. While he is better known for his time with the San Francisco 49ers and the Philadelphia Eagles, Owens played for two of the better coaches in football history while with Dallas in Bill Parcells (2006) and Wade Phillips (2007-08).
Owens has had enough current Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett. He tweeted directly at Cowboys owner Jerry Jones about saying that Garrett is the Cowboys’ problem. Owens also included future Pro Football Hall of Fame tight end Jason Witten, saying that Dallas’ play-calling and overall offensive philosophy has become mundane and that they need Owens back.
Owens hasn’t played in an NFL regular-season game since he was a member of the 2010 Buffalo Bills. He wanting to mount a comeback at this point is just pure hubris and Jones isn’t going to have any of that nonsense. But then again, haven’t we all had enough of The Jason Garrett Show in Big D? What does he do exactly besides claps his hands and slap his players’ rear ends?
Owens has to know that the offensive play-calling wasn’t on Garrett’s plate. It never was. That would be former Cowboys backup quarterback Kellen Moore does his darndest to try to make Dak Prescott look like a star franchise signal-caller. Prescott is losing millions of dollars by the ball game.
Jones isn’t going to part ways with Prescott, who replaced his favorite signal-caller Tony Romo in Dallas. Moore is still unproven as an offensive coordinator and so is quarterbacks coach Jon Kitna.
But what you see is what you get with Garrett, a ton of sideline percussion and very little involvement in the game itself. Jones owns Garrett and this coaching ineptitude will continue for as long as Garrett continues to be a good sport about Jones’ meddling in things. Owens will have to keep dreaming because is just slightly better than Jeff Fisher 7-9 B.S. to stick around in Dallas.
