Terrell Owens was always outspoken when he played in the NFL and he isn’t slowing down in retirement. As Owens prepares to enter the NFL Hall of Fame this year, he has been taking part in a number of interviews concerning his past playing history, the current state of the NFL, and his thoughts on the teams that he used to play for. When Owens played Football, he was never shy when it came to calling people out, from his former teammates like quarterbacks Donovan McNabb and Jeff Garcia to his own head coaches. Now that he is preparing to enter the Hall of Fame, Owens took aim at the Dallas Cowboys and head coach Jason Garrett.

Terrell Owens and the Dallas Cowboys

At one time, Terrell Owens was public enemy number one, for Dallas Cowboys fans.

He played for the San Francisco 49ers at a time where the rivalry between the 49ers and Cowboys still meant something. He then moved over to the NFC East to play for the Philadelphia Eagles, where he went above and beyond in the bitter rivalry between them and the Cowboys. After leaving the Eagles, he joined the Dallas Cowboys and became one of their top players.

In his three seasons with the Dallas Cowboys, Terrell Owens was a superstar for the team. Owens caught 235 passes for 3,587 yards, along with a mind-boggling 34 touchdown receptions. In his second season with the Cowboys, Jason Garrett joined the team as their offensive coordinator. That year, Dallas finished with a 13-3 record and looked like the best team in the NFL until they lose to the eventual Super Bowl champion New York Giants in the playoffs.

In his first season with Jason Garrett calling the plays, Owens caught 81 passes for 1,355 yards and 15 touchdowns. It was like a match made in Heaven. In his final season with Dallas, Owens numbers dropped and the Cowboys missed the playoffs after they fired head coach Wade Phillips in the middle of the season and promoted Garrett to the head coach role.

Owens insults Garrett

Terrell Owens was gone the next season, moving on to the Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals where he never reached 1,000 yards or 10 touchdowns in a season again. Meanwhile, Jason Garrett ended up sticking with the Dallas Cowboys and has a record of 68-55 as the head coach. After ending up with one of the best records in the NFL in 2016, they slipped in 2017 when Ezekiel Elliott was suspended and the offense never got back on track.

According to Terrell Owens, the Dallas Cowboys are making excuses for Jason Garrett and blaming the players. He said that he has no idea how Garrett still has a job. Owens said that it isn’t fair to make players a scapegoat for the team’s struggles when it should all come down on the shoulders of a head coach who is not putting them in a position to win.
