Austin shows he's no T.O.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Roy Williams said last week that he’s no T.O., claiming that his complaints about not getting balls thrown his way weren’t a sign that he was going to divide the locker room the way Terrell Owens did.

But Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin doesn’t have to say he’s no T.O., because he has shown that he’s no T.O.

Austin has become the No. 1 receiver in Dallas by the merits of his play, not his contract, but after a game Sunday in which Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo often looked to other receivers, Austin said he wasn’t angry about not getting more balls thrown his way.

“Well, there’s times when I think I’m open, and I wish I’d get the ball,” Austin told Peter King of SI.com. “But I’m not Tony. And I have no idea what he’s going through back there. Usually he’s got some 300-pound guy back there chasing him, trying to rip his head off. So no, I don’t get too upset by that. Right now, we’ve got a good thing going. Guys are making plays when they’re called.”

Austin is a rare breed: A big-play receiver who doesn’t complain when the passes don’t go his way.

    He’s still in the honeymoon period. He was happy to be on the team a month ago.

    Holy GEESH was Austin WIDE FREAKING OPEN to the end zone when Tony threw to Roy and also Witten dancing wide open in the end zone a couple of series before.
    This could have easily been a 3 TD game, but Romo just didn’t see it.

    Oh, crap. This means I’m going to have to like a member of the Cowboys. Just when I thought Monday couldn’t get any worse.

  4. Hap says: Nov 9, 2009 9:38 AM

    Yes, he is a big play receiver that doesn’t complain when passes don’t go his way. He’s got his head on straight. So does Roy Williams. Finally, a corp of quality players that act their age. The Cowboys are a lot better than they get credit for being.

  5. chapnasty says: Nov 9, 2009 9:38 AM

    I am officially on the Austin bandwagon. This guy is phenominal and he is acting like a professional which isn’t normal for a big time NFL reeiver. I hope they can get in locked up for a long term deal. It’s obvious that the 4 years he has been playing with Romo is paying off.

  6. Krow says: Nov 9, 2009 9:40 AM

    Give him time. They’re all great guys when they start out.

  7. Perno says: Nov 9, 2009 9:43 AM

    I’ll reserve judgement until he gets a big contract and more than 3 games under his belt as the #1 WR.

  8. Leviathan says: Nov 9, 2009 9:46 AM

    Michael David Smith shows he’s no Mike Florio, and can give Dallas some occasional credit.

  9. rbais2 says: Nov 9, 2009 9:46 AM

    Michael, you’re an idiot!!!
    T.O. has made similar comments before!!!
    He has also made comments that don’t involve throwing Tony under the bus!!!
    Watch the video here after the Redskins-Cowboys game last year, after the ‘Boys tried to get him the ball 20 times!!!
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x9iwFrmPxZg
    There is better to T.O. than you think!!! If you can’t see what the overall person is like, then you’re the jerk!!!

  10. MNFANINAZ says: Nov 9, 2009 9:49 AM

    WHO!?
    Who the hell is Miles Austin?
    This is my favorite part of the Cowboys’ season, when they rise up and play above their heads for a few weeks and then lose at Green Bay and at home to either the Skins or the Raiders…
    The Cowboys suck because Wade Phillips sucks, they scare no one because that fat blob is in charge.

  11. urinal mint says: Nov 9, 2009 9:57 AM

    A little humility will get you a long way in life.
    Kudos to Miles… he’s earned it. I hope he hangs around Dallas for a long time to come.

  12. dcfan-1212450 says: Nov 9, 2009 9:58 AM

    Not every receiver is a Chad Johnson, TO, or Keyshawn Johnson. Those winning babies, crying about not getting the ball, never helps the team. No receiver who complains that much wins. The best example is Randy Moss. The old Moss was on a good Minnesota team, 15-1 one season, but his antics and mouth did nothing but send him into exile in Oakland. Now in New England, with a closed mouth and different persona, he is on a great team that WILL win another Super Bowl, which would be his first. Thats why Marvin Harrison, Jerry Rice, and Isaac Bruce has Super Bowl rings and Chad, TO, and Keyshawn dont…

  13. Hosstyle In Tampa says: Nov 9, 2009 10:00 AM

    Yeah Miles Austin is the only Wideout that doesn’t bitch about the ball???
    Then who are: Andre Johnson, Marques Colston, Larry Fitzgerald, Reggie Wayne, Steve Smith (carolina), Roddy White, and Greg Jennings???
    Possibly, the truth is that you talking heads only cover the whiny-ass wr’s because that’s the only storyline you guys are interested in???

  14. DallasDeathStar says: Nov 9, 2009 10:03 AM

    Maybe the EGals players, coaches, and fans should try to be less like T.O. and more like Austin and stop all the crying today. MAN UP ..YOU LOST ..STOP MAKING EXCUSES.

    Oh, and did anyone see Wade Phillips trying to high five someone at the end of the game against the eagles when they got the first down to clinch it. No one did it. It is so funny to see that fatty when he is excited and no one hugs him or anything. Like a Chris Farley movie, it never gets old…

    MNFANINAZ…….take another adderall and change ur tamp0n….. while ur at it get another life…….Cowboy hater dipwad……wow feeling better now….oh btw….did anyone see thu Cowboys stomp a mud hole in……..Philly who? I guess we’ll start hearing the Romo h0m0 imbescile comments……like he had’nt heard that one before……best thing bout Cowboy haters is they get to enjoy all thu positive press this week….

  17. Smush Rodrigez says: Nov 9, 2009 10:37 AM

    Congrats Cowboys and fans. That was a good win for them no matter how ugly of a game it was. Now the Eagles gotta win in Dallas.

  18. BasicInstinct says: Nov 9, 2009 10:42 AM

    There is definitely something new going on in Romo’s head besides worrying about 300lb tacklers. He is trying to win.
    Thank god he dumped that Bimbo. She definitely was dumming him down. What a distraction.
    Romo is playing like a man who knows his job is on the line.
    Austin knows he is lucky and he’ll take the ball whenever Romo can get it there.
    Does anyone know what Austin’s salary is?
    What about Romo?

  19. Vinchenzo says: Nov 9, 2009 10:44 AM

    EGals……thats good

  20. DonTerrelli says: Nov 9, 2009 10:48 AM

    Wait until he gets his big contract and then is traded, he’ll be acting like Douchemandzadah

    Your story’s headline on the Sports front page says, “Miles Davis.” I don’t think the jazz great ever played wide receiver for the Cowboys. :-)

  24. AbeFreshly says: Nov 9, 2009 11:36 AM

    It’s difficult to dislike Austin. He looks right at home in Dallas, Texas. You might even say that Dallas practically has his name written all over them. I hope the Cowboys sign him to a long term deal. THEN he can start acting like T.O.
    As for Randy Moss, he really has grown up, too, hasn’t he? It’s almost like he never even was a racially motivated highschool fighting, 30-day jailtime serving, weed-smoking, probation violating, official squirting, $25,000 fine paying, official touching, another $25,000 fine paying, anger-management counselling needing, corporate sponsor abusing, laughing at a $15,000 fine paying, taking-plays-off-admitting, plays-when-he-wants-to-ing, traffic control officer bumping & knocking to the ground-ing, 40 hours of community service doing, $1,200 fine paying & having-more-weed-in-his-car-at-the-time-ing, Chicago Bears fighting, $5,000 fine paying, Spiking the ball at Dre Bly’s feet-ing, another $5,000 fine paying, endzone celebrating-Green Bay Packers’ fans (pretend) mooning, $10,000 fine paying, field leaving with 2 seconds left-ing after a disgusting loss to the Redskins-ing, almost admitting to smoking weed once-in-a-blue-moon-ing, quitting on his new teaming, deliberately dropping TD passes in Oakland so he can get traded-so he can “play for a winner”-ing, stealing $9M off Al Davis-ing then deliberately quitting & faking an injury-ing, Bill Belichick/Tom Brady ass-kissing company man!
    Getting paid $9M to quit on your teammates, then take-the-money-&-run is not something that “the universe” forgets easily, even though all the new Patriot-ic Moss fans could care less.
    The Pats will NEVER win another SB as long as Moss is on the team. They might come close. They might go 16-0 during a season. Moss might set a TD reception record & score a go-ahead TD with minimal time remaining in the SB. But, somehow, someway, the Pats will end up losing after a supernaturally bizarre catch by some unknown WR (who won’t even be on the team 2 yrs later), or something. In fact, I bet the Raiders will win another Superbowl before the Pats do.

    Egals.. ok mr. COWGIRLS… that team is like a bunch of women on their periods…. a new one cries each month… booo freaking hooo.

  26. Grulks says: Nov 9, 2009 11:45 AM

    I just want to know where East96 and all the other Eagirls fans are with all their smack talk about how Philly was gonna pound Dallas.
    Dallas fans are here, waiting for your excuses.
    Since you really have nothing, except a big fat dose of “suck it”, I’ll help you out:
    “we’re the class of the NFC east”
    “44-6″
    “When’s the last time Dallas won a playoff game?”
    Hahaha, choke on that green and white Philly fans, because you and your city suck donkey balls.
    Can’t wait to hear all your bs moaning about the Ref’s and their bias.

    “Oh, and did anyone see Wade Phillips trying to high five someone at the end of the game against the eagles when they got the first down to clinch it. No one did it.”
    Uhh Witten did. In fact he ran right up to Phillips and initiated a poorly executed high five.

  28. Kage10 says: Nov 9, 2009 12:01 PM

    Michael David Smith, you may want to re-read the title…his name is Miles Austin, not Miles Davis. I hate the the new blogging news takes away from the accuracy…too many mistakes to be on a national news site.

  29. VoxVeritas says: Nov 9, 2009 12:03 PM

    “That was a good win for them no matter how ugly of a game it was.”
    I didn’t think it was ugly at all. Well it was pretty ugly when Felix Jones put a skirt on Asante Samuel, their 57 million dollar man.

  30. NachoBidness says: Nov 9, 2009 12:03 PM

    I love you oversensitive Cowboy crybabies who can’t take a hint of criticism where criticism is due and file everything under “the haters”

Oh and didnt thu Cowboys just stomp a mud hole in thu Feal-a-delfee-a Eagals…..Jamarcus Russell > D. McSkab

    @ MNFANINAZ
    you should be removed from this website for not only knowing nothing about football but for expressing your views. Although not all of us usually agree most of us come up with good debates, you on the other are just posting garbage.

  35. brasho says: Nov 9, 2009 1:47 PM

    Almost all WRs are humble in the beginning (depending on where they were drafted). I remember TO when he was with the 49ers and how grateful and full of praise he was for Rice, Young, and the 49ers. I remember his tears after he caught that ball against the Packers in the playoffs… he seemed like such a nice guy.
    Not saying Austin will or won’t become a WR-diva, just that it is far too early to judge.

  36. Vinchenzo says: Nov 9, 2009 2:20 PM

    @MNFANINAZ……paaleeese….wha wha wha…..if that isnt thu pot callin thu kettle black…..when u wake up & learn 2 read check thu first post on Phillips being a “blob”……so put a lid on that garbage can u call a mouth and sell crazy some place else……u Eagirls crybaby fans……lets see…..punk-sissy best describes u….

    Why would you google “vox veritas” in the first place? It’s not my real name and you’re not smart enough to stalk me effectively even if I gave you my real name and address. But even if you were that smart, why would you do it? You wouldn’t know what to do with me even if you found me.
