T.O. ready to go (and other stuff, too)

Terrell Owens is practically giddy about getting ready to play a game. I feel ya T.O., I'm getting pretty darned juiced myself.

Terrell Owens got in plenty of work during practice Monday, then stayed late to run some extra routes for quarterback Drew Bledsoe. He came away sounding confident that he'll be over his hamstring injury and in the starting lineup when the Dallas Cowboys face the Jaguars in Jacksonville on Sunday.

"I feel great," he said. "I'm ready to go."

I'm sure someone, somewhere, will spin the staying after practice to run routes with Bledsoe into a bad thing. My money's on Skip Bayless, with Jen Floyd Engel coming in second.

But I do have one problem with Owens' after-practice interview.

It helps that this week's playbook features many plays he says he's very comfortable running.

"They're moving me," he said. "I'm inside, I'm outside, I'm a little bit of everywhere."

Note to T.O. - Don't discuss the game plan or playbook before the game. It's kind of like Fight Club. The first rule of Fight Club is you don't talk about Fight Club.

Peter King loves him some Cowboys, even if Tony Romo isn't the starter.

Dallas, 11-5. John Madden's right: The most impressive unit of this preseason was Dallas' defense. Great move making Greg Ellis, who was a bit physically overmatched as an every-down defensive end, a latter-day Willie McGinest as strongside linebacker -- even though Bobby Carpenter's going to be a good one eventually -- and this is a deep front seven. Bill Parcells might have an interesting safety in 6-foot-5, 215-pound Pat Watkins, who'll be the tallest safety in recent history. Re: T.O., he won't destroy the chemistry here. Just a gut feeling.

Not only does he pick us to win the division, but he's sticking with his other pick.

Sweet. Where's BigBlueShoe? I hope he's OK, I fear he may have had a heart attack when he read that.

Mickey Spags loves the Cowboys Kiddie Corps. Hey, I kind of like that name, and I just made it up on the spot.
