There's nothing like Christmas Day for receiving old friends. So it is that Terrell Owens will be getting a visit from his one time teammate and sometimes sparring partner Jeff Garcia. They had a little history together back in San Francisco, and it didn't turn out so well. Owens had issues with the coaching staff - and his QB - over getting the ball enough. Then Owens questioned Garcia's sexuality.
So naturally both were asked about the other going into Monday's game. Garcia? He didn't have much to say.
Owens, on the other hand, was a bit more talkative about it.
Still, Owens later acknowledged that the situations with Garcia and McNabb helped him learn how to better deal with teammates.
"You always can learn from your mistakes, and I think I definitely had ample opportunity, especially with the suspension last year and going through a lot of things, to kind of just reflect on what happened, not only in Philly, but in San Francisco," he said.
Owens then paid Garcia some compliments on the job he's doing in Philly since McNabb went down.
Terrell also says he's not bummed about the Pro Bowl snub.
How's Terrell's finger doing?
Owens opted against season-ending surgery because the Cowboys were in the playoff chase.
"Hopefully, it will be a bum finger with a nice ring on it," he said.
I can live with that if T.O. can.
Andy Reid, on what Coach Parcells told him on a call earlier this year after McNabb went down.
Peter King is still on the Cowboys bandwagon. You've got to give King credit, he called the Romo thing early in the season. He likes Dallas on Monday night.
Dallas 27, Philadelphia 17
Hey, there's still a chance to get playoff tickets this morning.
On Tuesday, the Cowboys sold out their initial allotment of tickets in 19 minutes. The tickets that will go on sale Friday are the remaining season ticket-holder seats that were not pre-purchased by Thursday's deadline. Tickets will be for a potential Cowboys home playoff game as part of the 2006 postseason.
