Terrell Owens says he’s changed, matured but still blames the media for not letting go of his past

Terrell Owens said he his tried to be better person and teammate since being cut by the Cowboys in 2008. He said he has matured and stayed out of controversy in stints with the Bills and Bengals in 2009 and 2010.

Yet he said he is still dogged by his past controversies primarily in Dallas and Philadelphia because the media won’t let it go.

He said that is one of the reasons he went unsigned in 2011 after recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament. 

“The past two years the teams I have been on… I tried to dispel any of those things by going out and doing what I was supposed to do on the football field and leaving the distractions where they were,” Owens said of concerns about his character. “But again the media wouldn’t allow things that happened five or six years ago to stay in the past. They kept bringing those issues up. The media wouldn’t allow me to turn over a new leaf. I have done things to try to better myself and show people I have changed. Nobody can ever just forget things that happened five or seven years ago. Why don’t I get a free pass? Why don’t I get that same fair treatment like everybody else? I have never been in any off the field problems. Listen to the media anything criminal has gone on they bring my name in the mix and I have never had those problems.”

In Jerry's pursuit of making the team "Romo-friendly" he has turned the team into a team of wusses. While players with skill and heart such as T.O. have been let go. Yes Jerry has made brilliant personnel moves since T.O. was released, NOT!!! Get luck Jerry in your pursuit of mediocrity.

MOST OF THE CURRENT DALLAS COWBOYS FANS WISH T.O. THE PSYCHO WOULD LEAVE DALLAS AGAIN THIS TIME FOR GOOD

HOW LONG BEFORE HIS NEXT MELTDOWN OR EPISODE???

ONLY T.O. THINKS HE WILL EVER PLAY AGAIN

THE PROFESSIONALS THAT GET PAID TO DECIDE WILL TELL YOU IT IS OVER

I FOR ONE AM HAPPY HE IS REALLY WEARING OUT HIS WELCOME THIS TIME SO THAT HE CAN MOVE ON FOREVER

NOBODY EVER CALLS HIM BACK ASK HIM

HE DID NOT EVEN KNOW HE HAS HAD THE NICKNAME T.O. THE PSYCHO SINCE HIS DAY IN SAN FRANCISCO - HIS OWN TEAM MATES GAVE IT TO HIM

HE FOUND OUT ON-LINE

It's so lucky for me to find your blog! So shocking and great!

How come we never hear from Ed Werder anymore? When T.O. was there he practically lived at Valley Ranch.

Those fans that hated T.O., I guess they're happy going 6-10 and seeing the current roster be accused of not having any toughness.

I counted nine "I's" and one "me" in that whole article. A leopard never changes his spots....

T.O. the Psycho does not change

IT IS ALWAYS SOMEONE ELSES FAULT !

YOU CAN"T CRY WOLF ANYMORE PSYCHO the word is out!!!!

The name for this blog has changed from Cowboys corner to Terrell's tidbits.
