Owens again di­rects crit­i­cism at Gar­rett

The Dallas Morning News - - News To Use | Cowboys / Nfl -

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.
