T.O. stuck with Bledsoe at QB — for now


Recommended Posts



IRVING, Texas - Like it or not, Terrell Owens will still be catching passes from Drew Bledsoe this week.


Dallas Cowboys coach Bill Parcells stood by his quarterback Monday, instead blaming the offensive line for most of Bledsoe’s mistakes in a 38-24 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.


“I’m not switching the quarterback,” Parcells said. “I don’t think that’s the answer right this minute. ... Let’s try to get some of the things corrected (on the line) and we’ll go from there.”


Bledsoe threw three interceptions Sunday, the last on a pass to the end zone that could’ve tied the game in the final minute, but wound up going 102 yards the other way.


He also set up an early field goal for the Eagles with a fumble. That turnover came on the first of his seven sacks.


“He was under pretty good duress,” Parcells said. “The majority of the easy sacks they had were mental mistakes.”


Owens was none too pleased with the way things went in what he expected to be a breakout game against the team and town that dumped him last season.


After months of anticipation, Owens had to wait until the third quarter for his first catch. He finished with three receptions for 45 yards. More notable were his antics on the sideline, although his jawing at teammates and coaches supposedly involved shouts of encouragement.


“He was just trying to get us going,” said right guard Marco Rivera, among those Owens was seen yelling at. “He basically said, ‘We’re going to win this game.’ ... I just feel that he really wanted to show the world what T.O. was all about and he didn’t get that chance.”
