Eagles | Owens Wants the Ball More
Fri, 28 Oct 2005 07:21:22 -0700
Bob Brookover, of the Philadelphia Inquirer, reports Philadelphia Eagles WR Terrell Owens said the team is not getting the ball to him and RB Brian Westbrook enough, which is part of the reason their offense is struggling. Owens is tied for the league lead in receptions (44) and is fifth in the league in receiving yards (609). Owens yards per catch is down almost four yards from a year ago during the same time period. He's averaging 13.8 yards per catch this year, compared to 17.5 after six games last season. There have been times when he has stepped out of bounds this year rather than fighting for more yardage.
