Phillips takes veiled shot at Terrell Owens

It’s fair to criticize the media for bringing up Terrell Owens’ divorce from the Cowboys over and over.
 

With training camp in full swing, and all relevant parties having their say, it looked the issue was finally dead. 

But you can’t blame the media when Cowboys coach Wade Phillips takes a veiled shot at Owens, without even being prompted.

Phillips, who spins an enjoyable yarn at pressers, was pressed as to whether the Cowboys appeared humbled by their difficult 2008 season. 

Phillips couldn’t resist tweaking his former player.

“Well, we had one guy who was here who wasn’t real humble and he’s not
here any more,” Phillips said.  “So maybe it makes everyone else look
humble.”

Something tells me T.O. will have a response shortly on Twitter.

We apologize in advance if we report it.

  1. the reason TO will twitter a response is specifically because you WILL write about it.

  2. Exhibit A as to why the Cowboys have been unable to harness the talent on the roster and win a playoff game in the past decade. The leadership has no class.

  3. Nice one Philips, very original of u 2 throw a shot a TO. Its u need 2 get over yoself, he’s gone, its about time 4 u 2 stop worrying about crap that has nothing 2 do wit u anymore and worry about how bad the Cowboys will dissapoint fans yet again this season cuz God knows the Boys will never win a playoff game wit Romo bein QB

  4. Wade, who you gonna blame when you are fired this year?
    Cowboys, losing TO is not addition by subtraction… It is subtraction.
    Romo, you think people were in your business last year, just wait till this year without the lightning rod.

  5. Rosenthal, you rule. When’s Florio’s next hiatus?
    This is not that big of deal. All Wade said is that the remaining guys look humble next to Owens. Owens is admittedly “not humble”, so he’s not saying anything we don’t already know. It’s not like Wade said he wasn’t a team player.
    I applaud you for not slating this ridiculously. If Florio ever approaches you with a manual that says “Maximum Slant For Maximum Page Views”, please turn and walk away.

  6. Philip’s is a joke for a head-coach and he is just popping off because he knows that he and Romo are next in line to be ran out of Dallas. Their problems were far beyond T.O. last year and they will be the down fall of Philips and Romo this year. Then the Boys can get back to earning respect instead of being the butt of jokes!

    After reading your post, I almost hate to agree with you.
    or should I say
    aftr reddin yo post i omost h8 to agreed wit u

  8. Is it really a “shot” when it’s a fact? Does anyone out there really think that T.O. is humble? Guess it’s time to crank up the phony outrage machine.

  9. If when you say “veiled” you mean “totally obvious”, then yes, it was veiled.

  10. You better worry about the Giants the Egurls and the redskins what is happening in beffalo really does not matter
    Who you going to blame when your out of the playoffs again this year?
    And your outa work
    Lets hear it Vex

  11. wade phillips finally grows a big meaty pair of balls…when owens leaves. am i the only one who thinks oddly of this?

  12. …You better worry about the Giants…
    “Not until they get a QB.”
    You mean the Superbowl MVP? or do you think we should get one who can’t handle the snap on field goals?

  13. You’re too easy, puppet.
    Stick with the one that can’t hit the barn side of a broad.

  14. I like how everyone is siding with T.O. on this … just to talk crap about Dallas. lol
    HATERS

  15. use spell check dummy

    Really.

  17. That qualifies as a shot? That seems like about as light-hearted of a joke as I’ve ever heard anyone make about TO.
    And I highly doubt TO would be offended to hear that someone considers him ‘not humble’.

    NBD really, everybody hated the Cowgirls long before T.O. showed up, and will continue to do so long after he’s gone. Move over Partriots, you gotta soul mate.

  19. Wade Phillips is a fat slob. The reason T.O. was a problem at Dallas is because all the other prima dona’s were jealous of the attention he drew. He can have all the attention he wants at Buffalo, because none of the other players need or want it. Go get yourself another doughnut, Wade.

    telling someone else to use spell check??
    Look who’s talking…

  21. I think its pathetic how people rag on Wade Phillips for being fat. Like thats a legitimate gripe about a coach. Its a real knock on his coaching style. Since hes fat, he just eats doughnuts and is “soft”.
    I actually have grown to love to read all the inherently ignorant and hateful comments made about the Cowboys. Especially the ones about one of the top QBs in the game right now not being able to win big games. You know, because 27-12 over 39 starts… obviously all 27 of those wins were small games and the 12 losses were all the big games.
    People act like the Cowboys continuously have everything wrapped up and handled and Romo comes along and just gives the game away. Something about being in “big games” physically prevents him from winning. But when other QBs lose in the playoffs…..they just lose.

  22. I JUST CANT WAIT FOR THIS SEASON !!!! AND STILL DON`T KNOW WHY WADE PHILIPS STILL HAS A JOB!!!!!!!!!!!!!! JERRY JONES MUST HAS A BIGGER PLAN FOR THE COWBOYS!!!!! STILL I CAN`T SEE IT OR FEEL IT!!! FEEL ME?????????????

  23. I dont rag on Wade for being fat or even being a bad coach at that matter, I believe that TO isnt there anymore so Philips needs to stop bringing him up so it seems as if it was his fault that the Cowboys missed the playoffs, and Romo is no top QB and everyone will notice it this year when he completely stinks it up without TO being there, whiney as he may be he still is a playmaker
