Terrell Owens' frustration with the Dallas Cowboys offense carried over from the field to the locker room Sunday.

[size=24]Owens, despite having 18 passes thrown his way in the loss to Washington, had what was deemed a serious conversation about the offense with quarterback Tony Romo after the game, according to multiple sources.[/size]

The types of routes and throws are what concerns Owens, the sources said. The receiver, who the sources said was venting to Romo about his frustrations, has not liked how some of the throws were coming from the quarterback as far back as the season opener.

But Owens said Sunday he is still confident in Romo.

In the loss to the Redskins, Owens finished with seven catches for 71 yards and one touchdown.

"There were some opportunities there, and there were some opportunities there where they were holding and the refs just didn't call it," Owens said after the game. "You can't blame the refs; we just didn't make the plays."

Owens didn't talk to reporters Monday when he slipped into the locker room near lunch time.

Owens is tied for 26th in the NFL this season with 17 receptions, and he's 15th with 264 receiving yards.

He wants better numbers and is frustrated with his lack of touches, especially in the deep passing game, he has said. Defenses are covering Owens with a cornerback underneath and with a safety 15 to 20 yards away from the line of scrimmage to prevent the Cowboys from throwing deep to him.


Owens likes to go deep. Three of his first eight receptions of the season were for 20 or more yards. But he hasn't caught a pass for more than 20 yards the last two games.

"Man, like I said, the dude's a competitor," receiver Patrick Crayton said of Owens. "Any competitor in this league, a receiver, running back, quarterback whatever the situation is if you don't want the ball, what are you playing that position for?"

[size=24]Following Sunday's game, Owens said he didn't think he got the ball enough.[/size]

Coach Wade Phillips said he's not concerned about Owens' comments regarding his role.

"We have quite a few good players," Phillips said. "We didn't get the ball to Marion Barber. We didn't get the ball enough to Terrell last game. It's a good problem to have, but we need to be able to rectify it by controlling the ball more. Making more first downs, having longer drives those kinds of things to help everybody get the ball."




WOW he gets 1/3 of the plays TO HIM and he isnt happy?

What's scary is that Wade Phillips agrees with him too. I tell ya, that locker room has zero discipline from Wade. One loss and people start pointing fingers.

I can't wait for this crazy guy to bring down the Cows. I'm hoping we meet them again in the Playoffs, and TO whines until Romo throws his BFF pendant into Galveston, and the Cows self-destruct. Would love to see it.

I'd love for this to slam the Cowboys like he did the Eagles, but it just won't happen I am afraid. Wade Phillips isn't And Reid and he'll just stroke Owens ego. Wade is a cream puff coach.
