Romo's turn for a T.O. backstabbing

New, comments

I guess it comes as no surprise that the Dallas Cowboys are on the road to being torn apart by Terrell Owens. After all, he's already left two teams after clashing with the starting quarterback. This time it's Tony Romo who's feeling the Wrath of Terrell, and this time some of the blame -- in T.O.'s mind -- belongs to tight end Jason Witten. Some choice bits from this report:

Owens feels that Romo and Witten -- close friends and road roommates who came to Dallas in the same offseason -- hold private meetings in which they create plays the two will use in upcoming games without including Owens in the conversations, according to a source who speaks regularly with Owens' teammates. Owens believes these discussions have worked to his detriment as Romo seeks to deliver the ball to Witten regardless of whether Owens is open.

Paranoid much? And this, from an anonymous teammate:

"He's insecure about it,'' the player said of Owens. "The thing that bothers me more than anything about this problem is that it's always something with him -- San Fran, Philly and here, always something. And he brings other people into it. You know, he talks to Sam Hurd and Roy Williams, who just got here and doesn't really know these guys. T.O. talks to him and so now he probably thinks Witten politics with Tony for the ball.

"That's so far from the truth. You think Tony is throwing to him because that's his buddy? His best buddy is Bobby Carpenter, and that's not helping him too much. It's crazy to think that, and I hate that he acts that way."

I wonder what the so-called "Romosexuals" think? For that matter, what does Jessica Simpson think? (Wait, is she even capable of thought?)
