At first, Terrell Owens didn't want to discuss Dallas 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." Owens surpassed the 1,000-yard receiving mark each season he played in Dallas, finishing with 38 touchdowns in 47 games. Follow Jon Machota on Twitter: @jonmachota
