Terrell Owens may not be catching a lot of footballs, but he seems to be catching plenty of Z's -- in team meetings, most recently on Thursday.


Owens

"I don't know what it is," Owens told the Dallas Morning News after Thursday's practice. "I've never been diagnosed with it. It's nothing new for me to fall asleep in a meeting. It goes back to my rookie year in San Francisco. My receivers coach [George Stewart] knew I would fall asleep. He thought I was staying up late, and sometimes I did. When I did get to bed early, I would still get to meetings and fall asleep, and it's the same thing here."


Owens said he'd told the Cowboys before he signed with the team that he had a sleeping problem.

The reason? The standout wide receiver said he's not staying up late. But Owens added that once he processes the game plan, the meetings and film work become redundant. And in a dimly lit room, Owens can doze off in a hurry.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said takes the news in stride.

"Those are personal health issues, and we all have them in varying ways. I don't say that as though it's something that's irritating at all," Jones said.

Passing game coordinator Todd Haley isn't so sympathetic, Owens said.

"Todd is a big stickler, and he kind of got offended," Owens told the paper. "That's one of his pet peeves about not sleeping in a meeting. I talked to him one-on-one and said, 'I'm not trying to fall asleep. I've always been like that.' "

Owens said he once had Stewart, who now coaches in Atlanta, call Eagles receivers coach Davud Culley in Philadelphia to tell him about the sleep problems.

"At some point, give me a little vet credit," Owens said. "But I understand [Haley] wants me to be a professional and be a stand-up guy for the younger guys on the team."

In seven games this season, Owens has 37 catches for 482 yards and five touchdowns.

I would take him on my team until what I saw a few weeks ago. He scored a TD and his linemen came over to congratulate him and Terrell just ignored him. He has some great games, but overall, I think he's just a negative for a team.

In seven games this season, Owens has 37 catches for 482 yards and five touchdowns. And leads the team with 87 naps in 99 team meetings.


I guess he is a Bipolar freak show, who is taking waaay to many meds, and he really did try to commit suicide. I think it was due to a camera not being in his face giving him attention.

noa

I feel really bad for him. He has this terrible affliction where he can't practice or stay awake in meetings. Must be tough to deal with. Maybe we should start a charitable foundation to find a cure. Or Bill Parcells could decide to treat him like any other player on the roster and get him in line.

I'm starting to think he is like Rickey Williams, where he doesn't mean to be an ahole, he just has the mind of a 12 year old kid and never grew up past that for whatever reason. Environment, parenting, whatever. He's like a kid in an adult body.

I tend to have the same problem. Heck, I fall asleep in the doctors waiting room even though they are pretty good and it only takes 10-15 minutes to be called to the back.

Yeah, but at work?

I don't think Terrell realizes he is in a job.

Some days I am so bored at work IF I could get away with it, I would fall asleep at work. I don't see the big deal besides someone trying to find something to keep T.O. in the headlines.

I think it's a big deal. Lack of respect for the coaches. Like he better than them. But this isn't anything we don't already know. :D

Get your head out of your ass. I thought it was funny that they're treating his sleeping in meetings like a disease. You don't have to click on the thread and READ it if you don't want to.

Bob Dole didn't read past Frazod's post. Bob Dole already saw the ****ing thing on the T.O Network's official website (www.espn.com) earlier today.

And perhaps you should pull your head out of your ass and be thankful that you don't suffer from sleep apnea.

Uh, Owens, but since I've determined that you're far crazier than I am, if you want to beat to Hyperlite's ass, I won't try to stop you. :)

TO is going to give Jerry Jones a Heart attack before the end of the year.

So far he has gotten rid of Bledsoe, pissed off the fans, pissed off his coach, ran his mouth, threw tantrums, attempted suicide, ran his mouth, fell assleep during meetings, missed meetings, bitched about Mcflabb, ran his mouth, missed most of preseason, missed over half of all practices, and still the guy runs his freakin mouth.

The people who have been there for 5 years are allowed to fall asleep every now and then.

Isnt that the sleep apnia thing? or whoever you spell it. I know alot of people suffer from it. My sisters boyfriend is always passing out when he sits down on a chair lol. When they sit and stop moving, they just pass out.
