"Then, Owens turned his attention to Johnson, who he referred to as "Sheshawn" on three separate occasions, the Star-Telegram reported. (As the No. 1 overall pick in the 1996 draft) he is the ultimate underachiever on that (ESPN) panel. I am the reason he is in the booth," Owens said. "Everybody is aware when I was brought to Dallas, he was the one they let go to get me here."Sooooo ... no hard feelings then? It's kind of hard to know who to side with here. T.O. vs. Keyshawn? Can we get Deion Sanders or Pete Rose involved somehow? In other news, Terrell Owens has a weekly radio show? How is that not simulecast on all ESPN networks, TBS, Comedy Central and C-SPAN? • T.O. reportedly defends Romo, rips 'Sheshawn' [MSNBC]
T.O. would like to take this opportunity to clarify a few things. Yes, it sounded like he was complaining when he said that 18 throws and 2 running plays called in his honor was not enough involvement in the Dallas Cowboys game plan, but he seriously holds no ill will towards his coach, owner, offensive coordinator, massage therapist, Starbuck barista, or Immortal Beloved, quarterback Tony Romo. Keyshawn Johnson, on the other hand, can go soak his fat underachieving head. Owens used his weekly radio show to explain that his comments on Sunday were said merely out of frustration due to the loss to the Washington Redskins and that the fact that roughly half the balls thrown his way were "not a valid catchable pass" is not a reflection on the skills of the man throwing them or the offense that created them. So everything's cool ... ALL RIGHT!? What is not all right, however, is when a no-talent washout like Keyshawn Johnson dares to criticize him from his ESPN analyst chair.
