Many readers have raised with us the choice of attire by Cowboys receiver Terrell Owens in an interview that partially aired during the Sprint Halftime Show, as part of NFL Network’s coverage of the Bengals-Steelers game.
During the interview, Owens is wearing a green shirt with a large eagle on it. (Meanwhile, interviewer Deion Sanders of NFL Network apparently raided Bill Cowher’s closest for a Cliff Huxtable sweater.)
Green. Eagles. Hmmm.
More importantly than his attire, Owens spent some time complaining about his current role in the offense. “I don’t like it,” he said.
“When I came here, I came here with the idea and the notion that we had a chance to win a championship. Me coming to the city of Dallas, I want to bring a sixth Super Bowl championship to the city of Dallas. And for me to have the numbers that I have, not really being involved, it is discouraging. It is frustrating.”
Asked whether the numbers or the championship are more important to him (be careful, Deion — you’re venturing dangerously close to engaging in actual journalism), Owens said, “The championship. But at the same time you can’t obtain that championship if I’m not involved in the offense.”
The rest of the interview will air on NFLN’s Gameday Morning this Sunday. For now, here’s the clip from Thursday night.
