On the last episode of As the T.O. Turns, Bengals receiver Terrell Owens claimed that his “brother” had authored the Twitter message criticizing Redskins quarterback Donovan McNabb.
On Tuesday night’s episode of The T.Ocho Show, Owens discusses the situation — and he says nothing about his brother posting messages onto T.O.’s Twitter page.
Apparently, then, Owens has ditched the lame excuse. And he has offered in its place a couple of other lame excuses.
The full segment already is posted at the Versus website. Owens now claims that his criticism was directed not at McNabb but at the team, given that the organization had benched McNabb only two weeks earlier.
Owens also argued that, since the media can take shots at players, players should be entitled to say what they want to say regarding other players. And then Owens wrapped up the answer by babbling about how the media won’t talk about his performances on the field.
Actually, plenty in the media had been praising Owens for a five-game stretch in which he caught seven touchdown passes and averaged more than 136 receiving yards. Plenty in the media also have been pointing out T.O.’s case of alligator arms against the Colts.
We wonder whether Owens will address his most recent game in any portion of Tuesday night’s show.
