Terrell Owens Backs Up Dez Bryant on Tony Romo and Jason Garrett Criticism

Owens did not mince any words on how he felt about a few people in the Cowboys' organization.

Former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant was on the most recent episode of the Pivot Podcast with Ryan Clark, Channing Crowder, and Fred Taylor talking about his time with the Cowboys.

Bryant was one of the better wide receivers in Cowboys’ history. But went over some of the issues he had with former quarterback Tony Romo and former head coach Jason Garrett. 

The veteran receiver specifically talked about how he didn’t touch the ball in the first quarter against the Jacksonville Jaguars and said “That’s how I knew JG (Jason Garrett) had something against me.”

Bryant said he was barking back at the organization. In the second quarter, he said that they were running him on “BS” routes, but he ended up scoring a touchdown on a drag route. 

The former Cowboys wideout said he did the LeBron James celebration toward his team and did the celebration again after another score when he changed the route. However, Bryant said he never got the ball again. 

It was an animated story by Bryant, which also caught the attention of another former Dallas wide receiver — Terrell Owens. Someone tagged Owens on X saying, “Didn’t Terrell Owens say the same about Romo and these dudes?”

Owens responded to said tweet with, “I did! Romo, Witten and Garrett are snakes.”

The Hall of Fame also made another comment about the team saying Jerry Jones is winning whether the team wins or loses and that he got fans fooled.

There’s no love lost between Owens and the Cowboys, as it seems he didn’t enjoy his time in Dallas. Owens spent three years with the Cowboys, where he scored 38 touchdowns and had 1,000-plus receiving yards each season. Despite those successes on the field, it appears that there were a lot of issues and drama behind the scenes.
