Here's what we know: the Dallas Cowboys are 12-1 and playing some pretty inspired football. Keyshawn Johnson thinks former head coach Bill Parcells should get some of the credit -- after all, the Tuna did put together the roster. Terrell Owens disagrees, and in the process of doing so takes a few shots -- or 12 -- at Meshawn:
"I'm probably the main reason he's in the booth right now," Owens said, referencing the fact that his signing led to Johnson's Dallas ouster. ... "For me, if he's gonna be hater and throw me under the bus, (it's) because he and Bill are real good friends. Nobody would even know he won the Super Bowl unless you checked the roster.Nothing like two guys in love with themselves getting into a cat fight. Johnson seems like a reasonable guy, and he's a million percent better than Michael Irvin on NFL Sunday Countdown, but I think T.O. wins this round. Unanimously. In fact, there's not one thing I can point to and say, "well, Owens' was obviously exaggerating there." It's all pretty much spot on, or just very, very embarrassing ... or both.
"My thing is, we came out the same year. He was a first-rounder, I was a third rounder. I'm still playing, he's not. You compare our stats up until the time he retired, it's a no-brainer. I'd challenge him to come out and try to make this team. He'd be a third or fourth receiver at this point. He can hate all he wants to. Compare the stats, they don't lie.
"Here's a guy, writes the book, 'Give Me the Damn Ball,' and he has 106 catches and one touchdown, and that was off a tipped pass. I'll never do that in my career. He can hate all he wants to."
Good news for Johnson, though: if the ESPN thing doesn't work out, it sounds like Owens will put in a word for him as Dallas' fourth-string receiver. That's not humiliating.
