Terrell Owens CHECKS HIS BALLS AT THE DOOR AND BACKTRACKS ON Jessica Simpson
Dallas Cowboys star Terrell Owens says he was only joking when he blamed quarterback Tony Romo's lousy performance last Sunday on the presence of new girlfriend Jessica Simpson.
"I tried to get [Romo] to call her so I can explain to her that she doesn't really know me and I can be funny," Owens told The Dallas Morning News yesterday. "It's not a big deal. I will try to rectify the situation between her and I."
The wide receiver with the big mouth made a tongue-in-cheek comment targeting the ditzy celeb after Dallas' 10-6 loss to Philadelphia. Romo threw three interceptions as the Cowboys failed to score a touchdown. (CFDA)Simpson attended the game wearing a Romo jersey with a pink No. 9. The last time Romo played so poorly, his then-girlfriend, singer Carrie Underwood, was in the stands.
Cowboys fans and sports talk radio hosts suggested Romo was distracted by his girlfriend's presence. Owens, in a widely misinterpreted crack, echoed their complaints.
"Right now, Jessica Simpson is not a fan favorite in this locker room," Owens initially said. "I think with everything that happened, and obviously the way Tony played ...I think a lot of people feel like she's kind of taken his focus away." (With John Mayer at the MAC Gala last May)
Hours later, while attending the Dallas Mavericks victory over Phoenix, Owens clarified things.
"I understand how everybody was looking at Jessica Simpson as a distraction, and that's definitely not how I saw it," Owens said. "[Romo] had a bad game. I don't think she had anything to do with it."
