I told you guys Bill Parcells is using the ever dreaded "Cone of Slience" when dealing with Terrell Owens. Even Jerry Jones has been "coned".
"I'm going to let T.O.'s actions speak for themselves on the field," Jones said. "He has the ability to compromise the defense and he should."
Todd Haley gets a nice write up from JFE, who's climbed off the T.O.-bashing ledge long enough to pen an interesting article.
"I've been fighting this guy for 10 years," Haley said. "None of that is going to change."
He promises to keep fighting the good fight started by Drew Bledsoe and former passing game coordinator Sean Payton before he took his pleas of "please let us pass" to New Orleans.
Payton had Parcells' ear, but they also had philosophical differences. Payton had a reputation in Valley Ranch circles for being a cutesy, West Coast guy as well as a little bit of a Parcells butt-kisser. Haley has a rep for being ornery.
Even his wife thinks so.
Payton was a butt-kisser! Tell us how you really feel, Jen.
Nice to see Flozell Adams getting some love from the Cowboy Nation, you can't overstate how important he is to making our offense go this year. We learned that lesson the hard way last year.
Roy Williams is trying to tag Terrell Owens with the name "Spandex Man". I have to say no dice on that plan. Spandex Man just doesn't have a good ring to it. I know some of you prefer the name "Cancer" - ahem, Deke - but I prefer Eldorado, or more formally: The Eldorado Kid. Alas, you just can't replace T.O., it has become symbolic of the player. But when Terrell and Terry Glenn are slicing up secondaries this season, we can just call them TNT.
By the way, SI.com ranks Eldorado as the #6 most exciting athlete today.
Terry commented on the pictures of Kyle Kosier that have shown up over the weekend. I have to agree the guy looks pretty rugged. What cracked me up though was the contrast between that picture and the one the press was using when we signed him.
Nice guy, maybe a little goofy; looks kind of soft.
Not so nice guy; possibly contemplating killing someone.
Oh yeah, here's a Todd Archer article on Kosier (sub. required).
"It's critical for us in the run game to be able to do everything right- and left-handed here," Sparano said.
