I have no idea where this came from because I saw what Keyshawn said and it didn’t seem that bad at the time, but T.O. is calling the former ‘Boys receiver out. During Sunday’s open thread I noted that Keyshawn had actually made a good point about coaches and their successors. Here’s a summary from that post which highlighted what Johnson said…..
Wow. Keyshawn makes a great point about previous coaches building their teams and the following coach taking them to Super Bowls in regards to Owens. He used himself in Tampa with Tony Dungy building the team but Gruden winning the Super Bowl, and the same analogy with Emmitt, Jimmy Johnson, and Switzer. This could actually be the case in Dallas this year. Good stuff.
Sound like it makes sense right? Well not to Owens…..
According to an article posted in the Dallas Morning News Owens stated “It’s not a matter of me giving or not giving Bill credit. Everybody wants to make a big deal, that this is the team he built. It doesn’t matter. … My thing is give credit to Wade. The difference between Wade and Parcells is this: Parcells, he didn’t use me as a playmaker; Wade, he got the staff, and that’s what I’m being used as.”
After dismissing comments about Parcells importance in the club make-up Owens challenged the retired Johnson to “down here and take my job. ESPN producers, let him go.”
Owens went on to say “I’m probably the reason he’s in the booth now.”
Well then. I should have video of Owens up soon, but this seems like much ado over nothing if you ask me. There should be good fodder this weekend as both Parcells and Keyshawn will have something to say about this on Countdown.
