Why T.O. hasn’t spoken to the media postgame

Terrell Owens has not spoken with the media after each of the Bills first two games. Normally this would not be a big issue, but since it’s Owens it is. So T.O. addressed the subject when asked about it Wednesday.

“I think that with anything I say, it has been kind of misconstrued or taken out of context, so you’re right, it is my prerogative and I’m filling my obligations throughout the course of the week where I talk to the media, so it’s not mandated that I talk to media after the game,” said Owens. “As long as I’m fulfilling my obligations as far as talking to the media throughout the week, then I’m doing my job. Obviously I’m not trying to slight the fans by any means. Those fans were fantastic, first regular season (home) game and obviously it was a big accomplishment for myself and for the team with a win. Other than that, that’s pretty much my stance on it.”

Later Sunday night after the game, Owens did tweet that it was not his best performance, but that the team pulled out the win. So he was also asked about that comment on his twitter account.

“I just feel like I let some opportunities slip,” he said. “And obviously with the deep ball I kind of relaxed and the shield was kind of dirty from the couple plays before, so you know, again, I have high standards for myself, and obviously I’m pleased with the win and that we won. We came back and sealed the win, but like I said, I have high standards for myself and it wasn’t my best game. I just try to perform at a high level.”

Personally I think Owens knows everything he says will be overanalyzed and probably feels that less is more for him.
