Terrell Owens attacks the the coaching staff.
Felix Jones is gone for the year.
And now Terence Newman injured his groin and he may not play Sunday.
What a week for the Dallas Cowboys.
Let’s start with Owens:
- Apparently, the interview Sunday with Deion Sanders is going to be a doozy. We have no idea what Owens may say, but if it gets any worse than what he has already said, it will be time for Wade Phillips to be ballsy. Suspend Owens for a game. Give the ball to Roy Williams and Marion Barber and see what happens. Of course, Sanders is an entertainer and he very well could have said that to get more people to watch the show on NFL Network at 10 a.m.
- If he stays healthy, he had a real chance for rookie of the year, something a Dallas Cowboy has not won since Emmitt Smith in 1990. Jones was an important weapon for the Cowboys on special teams and on certain offensive plays. He had the capability to explode and spread the field out. Losing him is big because ever since he’s been gone, the Cowboys have struggled.
- If Newman cannot play, the pressure is back on rookie Mike Jenkins, who has been inconsistent. We know Jenkins can think too much while on the field and avoid big hits. In the secondary, that’s an unhealthy attitude to have. The concern is even when Newman is 50-50 on the field, he doesn’t play well. It is really unfortunate how he has had health problems the last two seasons.
