Remember back to when we played the Eagles earlier this season, all anybody could talk about was Terrell Owens going against his old team. This time, it's all about winning the NFC East, the Owens sub-plot has been buried for the most part. There's still a little life left in that storyline, but we've reached a point where the game overtakes the personalities.
Right on, the team needs to focus on one thing, winning the NFC East. It seems strange to go back and remember that game, and the Owens hoopla that surrounded it.
Four Philadelphia receivers had more yards that day. The little-used Hank Baskett more than doubled Owens' total.
Near the end of the game, Owens prowled the sideline screaming, "Why am I here?" to receivers coach Todd Haley and anyone within range.
I had forgotten all about the "why am I here" incident. Once Romo took over, things definitely got better on the Owens front. It started going so well that Owens made a big sacrifice for the team. He decided to play with his bum finger even at the risk of permanent damage.
The reason: Owens believes this team has a shot at the Super Bowl.
"We're looking for a win this time," Felicita said. "We're looking for a real win this time. Come on, let's go get 'em!"
I like grandma's style.
