You can now count Terrell Owens among the doubters of Bill Parcells’ gridiron genius, as the Cowboys receiver says his former coach is “out of touch” with today’s NFL players.
T.O. doesn’t like the way Parcells & Dolphins management have given the cold shoulder to Taylor, just because Jason skipped a few team workouts to go Dancing With The Stars:
“What Jason was doing was beneficial for him,” Owens said of Taylor’s dancing on television. “It’s not football-related, it has to do with his personal life. Coach Parcells is way off base to criticize and call Jason out in the manner that he has. They’re starting to realize he is kind of out of touch with a lot of today’s athletes and things that are going on.”
Of course, T.O. has his own perturbed past with Parcells back when Bill was in Big D. Parcells would hardly ever refer to Owens by name, just calling him “the player”, and had fined Terrell for missing team sessions.
Plus, T.O. is only sticking up for a fellow football star-slash-aspiring thespian, since both he & Taylor are looking toward acting careers once their playing days are done.
And who knows - maybe Terrell & Jason will star together in the same big-budget production someday. Could be a cop-buddy movie, could be a new wave of Miller Lite commercials.
The only problem - who gets top billing?
