That might be the first game I ever cheer for the Eagles. EVER! I've always been one that the Eagles are my most hated team...but this move brings Dallas back ahead of the pack.

Re: Cowboys Officially Sign Terrell Owens

For those of us who may have missed the earlier chapters of the TO saga, the following is required reading:

2000

-Sept. 24: Owens celebrates a pair of touchdowns in a 41-24 win over the host Dallas Cowboys by running to the star logo at midfield and posing. San Francisco coach Steve Mariucci suspends him for a week. "I was praying to God. That was no act of taunting,'' Owens says.

-Oct. 22: Owens accuses his 49ers teammates of quitting following a 34-16 loss to the Carolina Panthers. "I think the whole team just gave up, man,'' Owens said. He apologizes to his teammates the next day.

2001
-Oct. 31: Owens lashes out at Mariucci for his play calling, in particular his refusal to run up the score on opponents. "I think it's funny, but ... his buddy system with all the coaches around the league, I think he tries to spare them sometimes,'' Owens says.

2002
-Jan. 13: Owens complains about his role in the offense following a 25-15 playoff loss to the Packers. "I want to be the go-to guy on this team,'' Owens says. "But the play calling doesn't always involve me. I get lost in the offense.''

-May 3: Owens rankles team officials for risking injury when he plays his first game for the Adirondack Wildcats of the U.S. Basketball League.

-Sept. 22: Owens criticizes Mariucci for having quarterback Jeff Garcia kneel down at the Washington 16 at the end of a 20-10 win over the Redskins rather than trying to score again. "We have no killer instinct, period,'' Owens says.

-Oct. 14: Owens celebrates a touchdown catch on Monday Night Football by pulling a marker from his sock and autographing the ball. Owens tosses the ball into the stands to Greg Eastman, his financial consultant and an adviser to Shawn Springs, the player who was covering him on the play.

-Dec. 15: Owens celebrates a touchdown catch in a 20-14 loss to Green Bay by taking pompoms from a cheerleader and dancing behind the end zone.

2003
-Jan. 12: Just before halftime of a 31-6 playoff loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Owens screams at the 49ers' sideline and slaps his head in disbelief when Mariucci elects to run out the clock rather than try to cut into a 28-6 halftime deficit.

-Sept. 21: Owens throws a sideline tantrum directed at offensive coordinator Greg Knapp and is critical of new coach Dennis Erickson following a 13-12 loss to the Cleveland Browns. "It's my job to run routes and catch the ball,'' Owens says. "It's their job to know the personnel on the field. It's their job to know who the playmakers are and to design the plays.''

-Sept. 28: Owens storms off the field when Kevan Barlow was stuffed for a 1-yard loss on fourth-and-1 during a 35-7 loss to Minnesota. Owens throws his helmet on the sideline and after the game hints that quarterback Jeff Garcia should to be benched.

2004
-March 2: Owens traded from San Francisco to Baltimore for a second-round pick.

-March 16: Although the NFL initially approved the 49ers-Ravens trade, Owens contended he should be a free agent and worked out a deal with Philadelphia. Baltimore agreed to a settlement that rescinded the trade and provided them with a fifth-round pick from the Eagles.

-Aug. 13: An interview with Playboy magazine hits newsstands in which Owens was asked if he thinks Garcia is gay. Owens responds: "Like my boy tells me: If it looks like a rat and smells like a rat, by golly, it is a rat.''

-Oct. 31: Now with the Eagles, Owens mocks Baltimore linebacker Ray Lewis during an end zone celebration.

-Nov. 7: Cameras follow Owens as he yells at McNabb on the sideline during a 27-3 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

-Nov. 15: Owens draws criticism for a Monday Night Football promo in which actress Nicollette Sheridan - a star of ABC's "Desperate Housewives'' dressed only in a towel - asks Owens to skip the game then drops the towel and jumps into his arms. Owens later apologizes.

2005
-April: In an interview with ESPN.com, Owens says he "wasn't the guy who got tired in the Super Bowl,'' a comment believed by many to be about McNabb's struggles during the end of the game.

-Aug. 10: After a shouting match with Reid during training camp, Owens is sent home for a week. A media circus ensues in front of his house as he works out in his driveway, doing crunches and lifting weights for TV cameras and reporters.

-Nov. 3: In an interview aired on ESPN, Owens says the team would be better off with the Packers' Brett Favre starting at quarterback instead of the injured Donovan McNabb and blasts the Eagles for not marking his 100th career touchdown catch.

-Nov. 5: Philadelphia suspends Owens over the latest comments. Two days later, the Eagles extend the suspension to four games and tell Owens not to return. The reigning conference champions have gone 0-3 since.

-Nov. 23: An arbitrator rules that the Eagles' suspension was justified and that the team is within its rights to deactivate Owens for the remainder of the season.

2006
-March 14: The Eagles cut Owens one day before he was due a $5 million roster bonus, making him free to sign with any team. The club let him permission to speak with other teams in January, and he'd already met with Denver.

-March 18: Owens signs a three-year deal with the Dallas Cowboys that includes a $5 million bonus and annual salaries of $5 million in 2006, $8 million in '07 and $7 million in '08. "I'm a star among stars now,'' Owens said at a news conference

The obvious question is; What we he do next?

Re: Cowboys Officially Sign Terrell Owens

Jerry will need substancial reconstructive facial surgery to iron out the TO wrinkles in his pelt! I'm a little shocked at Parcells for allowing this. I hope ST is sticking pins in his TO voodoo doll as we speak

Re: Cowboys Officially Sign Terrell Owens

Dear Drew,

Congratulations on your new number 1 wide receiver. We are confident he is going to do to you, we mean do for you, what he has done for us. We look forward to catching up with you and seeing how well it is working out for the two of you when you come to visit the two of us in Philly.

Your Fellow QBs,

Donavan and Jeff

P.S. Keep a copy of that quote from Rosenhaus saying, “These guys have fallen in love already. On the jet here the bond they established was moving ... moving.” It may come in handy when, we mean if, he calls you gay.

Re: Cowboys Officially Sign Terrell Owens

It's only a matter of time before we start hearing about how this one move makes the Cowboys the favorite in the division.

I still shake my head in wonder over last season and how some mediots just wouldn't get off the Cowboys' jock... even when it was painfully obvious they just weren't a playoff caliber team.

I can still remember after our 35-7 beatdown on them Sean Salisbury remarking that the Cowboys were still going to make the playoffs, despite the fact at that time we held the tie breaker over them.

the best part about the site is the survey at the bottom right. Question: How important is a touchdown celebration? Almost 60% of the douchebags on the site say "It makes the game". Ahhhh, i love it!

i say the virus will start taking effect next offseason. Reason being, in the beginning, it's all good, but he will show his true colors eventually.

Re: Cowboys Officially Sign Terrell Owens

he's getting paid a lot of money, so maybe he'll be alright, i don't know though... i doubt he's learned anything and bledsoe isn't as good as mcnabb, so i don't see how a QB/WR blowout can be avoided.

Define "a lot of money". You'd figure in that 49 million is "a lot of money". Apparantly that wasn't good enough for him. That's an average of 7 million a year. if 7 million a year isn't a lot of money, he must be on crack. I doubt he's learned anything new right now too. He's probably singing his little rap song on the way to the bank. What's the over/under that once T.O. becomes displeased with Bledsoe, he starts cracking jokes about playing with a brokeback cowboy?

that 49mill contract was backloaded, and he got 3mill the second year. this year he'll make 10mill and then 8 and 7 mill if he stays on the team. Its definately a lot more money than his last contract (which every analyst thought was a bad deal for him).

i agree. at least the eagles had a pretty good supporting cast. the cowboys really dont. they have no running game to speak of and not much at WR. with TO being the only talent and the only one that teams need to plan for, hes going to bitch about not getting the ball, blah blah blah.

Jones felt pretty good about his choices when the Cowboys won their third Super Bowl in a four-year span. But that was 1995; Dallas has won only one playoff game since.

He's lost other big gambles along the way, from sticking with Switzer to hiring Chan Gailey, then Dave Campo as head coaches. He's also risked public scorn by releasing franchise icons Troy Aikman and Emmitt Smith.

Irvin's off-field woes are the local precedent for taking on Owens.

I really liked that part
I realy don't get your post. Jones has won three SB's as owner of the Cowboys. When they did give Deion 13 mil he could still perform on the field. What did we pay him for doing nothing? Troy retired from Lavars hit. Emmitt needed to retire but he still wanted to play and chose to play for another team. With the cap sometimes you have to let go of franchise players who still want to play. With the way that they have structured Owens deal they can cut him next year with no cap hit. I would not want Owen's on the skins but they did a great job on his contract so if Owen's does start problems they can get rid of him. Oh, and when they fired Landry it ticked off alot of diehard Cowboy fans at the time but if you would have asked any Cowboys fans 7 or 8 years later they would say it was the right move. I'm not defending Jones but he has not done all that bad.
