What did a still-bitter Terrell Owens say about Jason Garrett after Cowboys playoff loss?

Former Cowboys wide receiver Terrell Owens, who was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame last year, didn’t hold back on comments about coach Jason Garrett following Dallas’ 30-22 loss in an NFC Divisional Playoff game to the Los Angeles Rams on Saturday.

Owens took to Twitter to take another shot at Garrett and advised owner Jerry Jones to fire the long-time head coach.

“Hey @realjerryjones! 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.”

It was the beginning of a series of tweets from Owens on Garrett, whom he blames for running him out of town when he was with the Cowboys in 2007-2008. Garrett was the offensive coordinator before taking over as head coach in 2010.

Owners acknowledged that his departure played a role in his feelings on Garrett.

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

Garrett has just two playoff wins since taking over the head job midway through the 2010 season. He has an overall record of 79-61 and remains under contract through 2019, though Jones is expected to give him a contract extension in the next few weeks.
