Well, it finally happened…
Terrell Owens is at odds again with another quarterback, only this time it’s Tony Romo.
Terrell Owens, Patrick Crayton and Roy Williams all met with offensive coordinator Jason Garrett, to discuss their concerns about the offense.
Mainly they all believed that Tony Romo has been secretly creating plays with his best friend, tight end Jason Witten. They also believe that Romo consistently looks to Witten first on passing plays, and even forces throws to him when he has other options that are wide open.
Owens believes that Romo left him wide open on the play that ended the game on an interception that was intended for Witten in the loss to the Steelers last weekend.
I watched that game myself and actually shouted out loud, “Owens is wide open”, on that game-changing interception.
Witten and Romo, were both reportedly shocked when they learned that they held private meetings to create plays.
The Dallas Morning News also adds,
There is a growing concern among the wide receivers that Romo practices more with Witten and that this could hurt the team’s chemistry.
There is also a perception among the players that Owens is jealous of Witten’s bond with Romo because of the number of the times Witten has been targeted.
This is the last thing the team needs only days before what will be their biggest game of the season against the Giants this weekend.
I’ve been noticing that Romo’s game has changed somewhat, and there has been a lack of deep pass plays in the last few games.
I attributed it to the pinky injury that kept Romo out for a few games.
That said, if this team can’t get past this latest drama, it could mean the end of the road for our playoff chances on Sunday.
