09:26 AM ET 04.14 | At first, Terrell Owens didn't want to discuss Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo during a Friday radio interview. However, after a little encouragement, the former Cowboys wide receiver revealed that Romo was part of the reason his time in Dallas ended after three seasons. "With that situation, dude, I've kind of lost my respect for that situation," Owens told The Ben and Skin Show [KESN-FM] 103.3 in Dallas. "Man, that's a guy I shed tears for, I went to bat for. Then obviously, ultimately I'm not in Dallas anymore and I know he definitely had a hand in that. So, again, it's one of those things that you just kind of have to bite your tongue and keep moving on, you know what I mean?" Owens then explained the times he complained about not getting the ball in Dallas. For example, when he felt Romo was targeting tight end, and good friend, Jason Witten more than the other receivers. "It wasn't just me," Owens said. "I was just a voice. Sometimes I said things that a lot of people thought. I just happened to be one of those guys that really voiced their opinion. I wasn't the only one that felt that way. There were games where other guys were open. I wasn't saying that to get the ball thrown to me a lot more times. I was all about winning. During the course of the games, if you watch the film, there were other guys that were open that didn't get the ball. That was my thing. "I think that's what's really misconstrued is that my passion and things that I say can be viewed that I'm being selfish and it's all about me, but my goal has always been about winning a championship, and I think if you really ask my teammates that, they'll really convey that and they'll tell you honestly that's what I'm about."

Good Lord...

It was only a matter of time before we had to listen to this has-been opine on his departure from the Cowboys.

I'd say "Shut Up" but it doesn't matter with this fool...

Took the words right out of my mouth. Man, even though he can't see his relevancy in the NFL in a good rear-view mirror, this boob has to find ways to pop up. When will people just stop putting a microphone near him?

Still have to wonder why the media thinks this guy is relevant.

You know what's fun? Take every fortune cookie message and add two words to the end: "in bed." It's great fun every time at the China Buffet.

Can't believe that any QB would want to get rid of such a talent...I'll bet Romo (and Garcia, and McNabb, and Palmer, and Fitzpatrick) wish they had a WR with the talent and composure that TO brings to a franchise.


Sorry, haven't yet purchased Microsoft's new sarcasm font.

There's something wrong when a player that talented has played for so many different teams. Funny thing is in his twisted mind none of this is probably his fault. Just easier to blame others rather than manning up and taking responibility for himself. Childish.

Zactly! How many times do you have to go through this before realizing your errors? Buffalo was the smartest only putting him on the 1-yr deal. Get rid of him before there's a problem. I was just disappointed to see them let go of Lee Evans. Thought he had a lot of promise and now he's getting lost down in Baltimore.

Romo isn't a prima donna.
