Everyone knows why Bill Parcells skipped the media breakfast at the NFL annual meeting. Just ask poor Andy Reid who had to field the Terrell Owens questions.
"Where's Parcells when I need him?" Reid cracked, plumping down in his chair and then saying, but knowing better, "No T.O.?"
"The first year was great, good," said Reid... "The second year? No comment.
"I don't look back at it and say I shouldn't have done it."
Reid was asking how he thought Parcells would handle the problem-Thirtysomething, since he also made the earth quake in San Francisco upon departure.
"He'll do fine with him," said Reid, as if he could say anything else. "He'll make it work."
But evidently Reid has kept his wits about him over the matter, basically deadpanning when asked about there being two sides to every story, saying, "I guess I'll find out in July," the projected publishing date for Owens' upcoming book.
And yes, Reid has heard Owens' rap song on the wide receiver's internet site, saying his son played it for him.
"One of my goals was to get my name in a rap song, and I didn't make it," Reid said.
We also wanted to trade for Cleveland Browns S Chris Crocker who ended up with the Falcons.
"We couldn't get together on consideration," Jones said.
