Terrell Owens begs Jerry Jones to fire Jason Garrett

Another season ending in disappointing. Another seeming show of support for Jason Garrett. Another angry Terrell Owens.

The Hall of Fame wide receiver again called for the job of his former offensive coordinator in Dallas after the Cowboys’ 30-22 loss to the Rams on Saturday, falling three wins short of a Super Bowl title that has eluded the franchise since 1996.

Owens has never been shy about his feelings about Garrett, who has a 77-59 ledger in his nine years as head coach but is 2-3 in the playoffs.

“Hey @realjerryjones!” Owens tweeted, tagging a Jones account that hasn’t tweeted since 2011. “Bout time for a coaching change don’tcha think?! 2 playoff wins in 10 years!! Garrett isn’t the answer & NEVER will be! Way to compete guys!! #realtalk.”

The outspoken Owens has been on a mission to see Garrett’s head rolled, going on the radio in May to wonder why the 52-year-old “continues to have a job.” This time around, he suggested some Dallas players agree with his assessment.

“Dam goes as the HC goes! Trust me, those players r ‘WISHING’ he gets fired,” he said in one tweet.

Owens had Garrett as his offensive coordinator in 2007 and ’08 and conceded his personal feelings for Garrett may be playing a part in his professional evaluation.

“Yeh, maybe a little,” he wrote to one follower who said he was bitter. “That sapsucker got rid of me & had Jerry thinking I was the problem. So what has he really accomplished since I left?!! *jeopardy tune*.”

It does not appear Owens’ wish will be granted. NFL Network reported Saturday that Jones will try for a long-term extension for Garrett, whose current deal expires after next season.

See you all again this time next year.
