Cowboys coach Bill Parcells said he is just trying to focus on his own team.
Owens, who has waged verbal warfare against the Eagles and quarterback
Donavan McNabb since the off-season, was kicked off the team Monday for
conduct detrimental to the team. He was suspended for four games, starting
with last Sunday's loss to the Redskins, and he will be deactivated for the
final five games.
"When you're not on the inside of a place, you don't really know what
happened," Parcells said. "So I don't really have anything to say about it
other than I kind of understand as a head coach that every once in a while
you run into a situation that's difficult for everyone, and I'm certain
that's what has happened there. I'm just worried about my own house."
The Cowboys are worried about the Eagles using the Owens situation as a
rallying point Monday night.
The Eagles (4-4) have lost two straight games and are facing a must-win
situation against the Cowboys. And considering their championship pedigree,
the Cowboys say the Eagles are not going down without a fight.
Philadelphia has been to four straight NFC title games. They reached the
Super Bowl last season despite Owens missing the final two games of the
regular season and two playoff games with an ankle injury.
"We are going to be walking into a hornets nest," tight end Dan Campbell
said. "That scares me. Those guys are champions. They have too much pride. I
can see how this can pull a team closer together. They have a lot to prove
with all this baggage and adversity. I am expecting them to play the best
they have played all year."
