Here's a crazy thought: maybe Owens wasn't the problem. According to the Dallas Morning News' Cowboys' blog, Patrick Crayton was also glad to see Haley leave after the season. Haley's now the Cardinals' offensive coordinator, but apparently he didn't lose that winning personality:
"People always make a big deal out of (that stuff)," Warner said. "But for us in the locker room, it's no big deal. It's passion. It's fire. It's all those things tied into one, with a bunch of guys trying to compete. That's really all it was. I don't make any big deal out of it. And maybe someday we'll laugh about it."People tend not to pay much attention when T.O. gets riled up about, well, anything, but I think it says something when Warner's throwing a fit on the sidelines: Todd Haley might need to work on his interpersonal skills. I'll get him started. (Todd, pay particular attention to Nos. 6, 7 and 9 ... or don't; at this point it doesn't matter because Arizona's out of the postseason conversation.)
Warner also added that Haley came over and asked if the quarterback was still mad, implying that the coach said something very inappropriate.
