Owens again directs criticism at Garrett
Former Cowboys wide receiver Terrell Owens has often questioned Jason Garrett’s standing as head coach of the team, and he was at it again Saturday.
Owens took to Twitter during and after the Cowboys’ playoff loss to the Los Angeles Rams to vent his frustration.
“Hey @realjerryjones! Bout time for a coaching change don’tcha think?!” Owens wrote. “2 playoff wins in 10 years!! Garrett isn’t the answer & NEVER will be! Way to compete guys!!”
In response to a fan accusing Owens of not helping the Cowboys win more playoff games during his tenure in Dallas, T.O. responded: “I tried BUT Garrett was the HC then too!! See what I’m getting at?!”
Owens said Cowboys players are “wishing” for Garrett to be fired.
Owens played for the Cowboys when Garrett was the offensive coordinator in 2007 and 2008. In May, Owens told “The Fan” KRLD-FM (105.3) that it was “mind-boggling” that Garrett continued to be the coach.
“At the end of the day, how can you keep allowing the players to be the scapegoat for what’s not happening, especially when you have a head coach that’s supposed to be offensiveminded?” Owens said at the time.
Garrett is 79-62 in 81/2 seasons as the Cowboys’ head coach but 2-3 in the postseason. He is under contract through 2019.
