View Full Version : Cowboys/Giant Game - Owens late hit follow up.

It seemed odd to us that Giants safety Gibril Wilson took such a late shot at Cowboys receiver Terrell Owens after T.O. scored a fourth-quarter touchdown in Sunday night's 45-35 Dallas victory.

Video of the play in question appears at 3:25 of the highlight package on NFL.com.

We assumed that Wilson was merely acting out his frustration regarding the inability of the Giants defense to stop the Dallas passing game (or because his first name is so similar to the word "gerbil").

However, the replay shown on NBC last night from an end-zone camera shows that Owens subtly dropped his right hand and showed his middle finger to Wilson as Owens was moving toward the end zone.

A reader pointed it out to us this morning, and we confirmed it on the TiVo.

It doesn't excuse Wilson for hitting Owens so far out of bounds, but the league office could take a look at the tape and impose a fine on T.O., regardless of the fact that none of the officials saw him make the gesture to Gerbil. (I mean, Gibril.)

Under the 2007 fine schedule, the specific price tag likely will be $7,500.

I have never understood why someone gets upset about being given the finger.

This guy was upset because he got clowned over and over again and that's about it.
