Postgame quotables, T.O. version

In case you haven't seen this interview on television yes, Terrell Owens became very visibly upset over the course of his postgame interview. Crying may not be the right word, but it's very close.

Were there opportunities for him in the last pass of the game:
There were opportunities throughout the whole game. You just can't pinpoint that last drive. I ran my routes according to what was called and just came up short.

Was he limited because of his injury:
I wasn't. I had all faith in God and I believed that I could get back on this field in a timely matter the way that I did today. I couldn't have done it without God.

On how difficult a loss like this is for Romo:
This isn't about Tony. You guys can point the finger at him. You can talk about the vacation. And if you do that, it's wrong. It's not fair. It's really not fair. That's my teammate. That's my quarterback. If you guys do that, it's not fair. We lost as a team.

On if it was something schematically that the Giants did to shut them down:
No, there were opportunities and we made them sometimes and sometimes we didn't. It's the playoffs and every play counts. Every play is magnified. You can look at the game and point out miscues, post-play penalties, offsides penalties. We got ourselves in a hole.

Is there disbelief because he felt this team could have reached the Super Bowl? I know we would have, and we didn't make enough plays. It's really a shame on our part because we have the talent on this team.

On why he gets emotional about defending Romo: Because it's unfair and I've been through it. He gives it his all every day. I know the media. He's the quarterback of this team and win or lose, it's going to fall on his shoulders. But let it fall on the team's shoulders.

On how bad he wanted to win for Wade Phillips: Of course. We're a team. We're a family and he's our head coach. I know he wanted to win as bad as anybody else. We lost.

I still remember when T.O. was with San Fran.

He scored a TD and autographed the ball in the end zone. Let him cry like the media hound cry baby that he is.

To the rest of Dallas thanks for a great NY/Dallas game.

They are going to as the Klenex commercial goes "Let It Out"


No playoff wins in 12 years!

Obviously I have been as guilty as some few others as having pre or misjudged this man on his character based upon the misdirected actions of his early playing days at San Fran as a youth and his outspokeness (if perhaps untimely) at the situation that perhaps existed at Philly within the locker room and behind the eyes of outsiders. This talented individual is a team player, loyal to his coach and fellow team mates, and very supportive of his quarterback, both in success and in times of extreme disappointment. No fairweather type,and, I have found no quit in this dawg! Call me a convert.
