With T.O., we told you so

I hate to say 'I told you so,' but both 'jrs' and I told you so when it comes to the volatile nature of the arch-rival Dallas Cowboys.

We shall see what happens with Terrell Owens, Tony Romo and the Cowboys, but when T.O. starts whining about not getting the ball enough it usually doesn't end well. Just ask Jeff Garcia and Donovan McNabb.

In case you missed it, this was T.O. after Sunday's Dallas loss to Washington -- in which he caught seven balls and ran two reverses, by the way.

“I’m a competitor and I want the ball, ... Everybody recognized that I wasn’t really getting the ball in the first half. I’m pretty sure everybody watching the game recognized it, people in the stands recognized it. I think my team recognized it.”

As a Giants' fan, it is great stuff to read that. Funny that T.O. doesn't mention that star running back Marion Barber got just eight carries, touching the ball less often than he did.

T.O. was relatively quiet last season, but you knew that couldn't last forever. As for the 'I told you so,' part both 'jrs' and I predicted this.

Here is 'jrs.'

With all the talent in the locker room, Dallas should contend for the division title and home field all year long; but I get the feeling this team is two bad losses from anarchy."

Sorry, Jim. You missed by a game.

Here was my take when the Cowboys brought in Pacman Jones.

Personally, as a Giants' fan, it wouldn't bother me at all to see the Cowboys bring in all these guys. With the loss of various coaches and front office personnel, Jason Garrett waiting in the wings to replace Phillips and Jerry Jones star-gazing I think Dallas is a team on the brink of imploding.

So, gang, what do you think? Has the meltdown begun in Dallas, or is that just wishful thinking?
