Ter­rell Owens rips Dal­las coach after loss

Star-Telegram - - Sports - BY CLARENCE E. HILL JR. [email protected]­gram.com

For­mer Cow­boys wide re­ceiver Ter­rell Owens, who was in­ducted into the Pro Foot­ball Hall of Fame last year, didn’t hold back on com­ments about coach Ja­son Garrett after Dal­las’ 30-22 loss in an NFC Di­vi­sional Play­off game to the Los An­ge­les Rams on Satur­day.

Owens took to Twit­ter to take an­other shot at Garrett and ad­vised owner Jerry Jones to fire the long-time head coach.

“Hey @re­al­jer­ryjones! Bout time for a coach­ing change don’tcha think?! 2 play­off wins in 10 years!! Garrett isn’t the an­swer & NEVER will be! Way to com­pete guys!! #re­altalk.”

It was the be­gin­ning of a se­ries of tweets from Owens on Garrett, whom he blames for run­ning him out of town when he was with the Cow­boys in 2007-2008. Garrett was the of­fen­sive co­or­di­na­tor be­fore tak­ing over as head coach in 2010.

Own­ers ac­knowl­edged that his de­par­ture played a role in his feel­ings on Garrett.

“Yeh, maybe a lit­tle. That sap­sucker got rid of me & had Jerry think­ing I was the prob­lem. So what has he re­ally ac­com­plished since I left?!! *jeop­ardy tune*”

Garrett has just two play­off wins since tak­ing over the head job mid­way through the 2010 sea­son. He has an over­all record of 79-61 and re­mains un­der con­tract through 2019, though Jones is ex­pected to give him a con­tract ex­ten­sion in the next few weeks. Clarence E.
