It was a veritable offensive explosion for the Cowboys on Sunday.
Marion Barber and Tyson Thompson also scored. It was the first time since 2000 that three Cowboys rushed for touchdowns.
Receiver Terry Glenn, thriving while opponents key on Owens, caught two 13-yard touchdown passes from quarterback Drew Bledsoe.
Looking back at the first three games, the Cowboys offense is getting it done. 17 points against a very good Jags defense on the road, 27 points against a good Redskins defense, and 45 points against a not-so-good Titans team. If we score over 17 points, we should win most games.
Albert Haynesworth awaits his fate. As disgusted as I was by what he did, at least the punk is not dodging his responsibility and trying to blame someone or something else.
"What I feel like is I disgraced the game, disgraced my team and disgraced my last name. ... When I was sitting here in the locker room when the game was going on, I was looking at my phone, which has my kids on it. I don't want them to have my last name and to think their dad is a dirty player, because I don't play that way. ... What I did was disgusting. It doesn't matter what the league does to me."
Andre Gurode is still not sure why it happened.
"I've never been kicked in the face like this, and I've never seen anybody kick nobody else in the face," Gurode said.
Kennard McGuire, Gurode's agent, expressed concern.
"I'm going to speak with both teams and the league tomorrow to determine their course of action regarding this incident," McGuire said. "I have tremendous concerns about what happened."
Tennessee did that numerous times, but Glenn caught both his touchdowns in zone coverage. He gave a head fake to a defender before racing into the end zone to receive Bledsoe's pass on the first score. And he outran a defender for the second one.
Just how Parcells envinsioned it over the summer. But Terry Glenn wants it known that he's pretty good in his own right.
"I hear people say that a lot," Glenn said. "I've caught plenty of balls in this league. I'm not saying T.O. doesn't attract double-coverage, but sometimes I'm able to get open on my own. I don't need other receivers and tight ends. I think I'm a pretty decent receiver. We just use everything to help each other."
John Clayton had a lot of time on his hands so he went in-depth into Owens' day. The Titans had a plan to stop Owens.
"It doesn't bother me," Owens said of his hand. "I ran a route on the sideline and I heard the coaches say, 'Slap his hand, slap his hand,' and I agree with it, slap my hand. Other than that, it didn't bother me at all."
Slap his hand? Probably the right call but not very manly. The Titans defense are hand-slappers! (When they're not busy cutting a guy's face with cleats)
So the Cowboys whip the Titans and move on to ... Philly. Talk about the hype machine getting ready to explode. Owens returns to Philly and the coverage is going to be wall-to-wall. Parcells wasn't ready to discuss that yet.
Ah, yes, next week.
The Cowboys travel to Philadelphia, bringing Owens back to the city that loved him in 2004 when he helped the Eagles to Super Bowl XXXIX and now despises him.
