TO just kidding...

SANTA CLARA – Terrell Owens was just having fun with his Web-site audience when he bashed Jeff Garcia and said he would leave San Francisco if Garcia remains the 49ers' starting quarterback, according to a press release reportedly written by the wide receiver and sent out Tuesday by his agent, David Joseph.
Last week, Owens’ Internet site – http://www.terrellowens.com – made news when the wide receiver threw his support behind 49ers backup quarterback Tim Rattay while slamming Garcia. Owens also poked fun at Garcia's recent drunken-driving arrest, saying if the quarterback attended Owens’ Super Bowl party, he would need to arrange a limousine to get Garcia home safely.

Now Owens says those remarks were taken out of context and didn't reflect the "lighthearted" and "off the cuff" tenor of his Internet chats.

"(Garcia) is undoubtedly one of the toughest and most courageous competitors with whom I have ever played," Owens wrote in his statement. "If we end up playing for different teams in the future, I will always have a lot of respect for Jeff and the things he did for me during my career with the 49ers."

If he doesn't sign a new contract with the 49ers in the next several weeks, Owens can hit the free-agent market. He has said the Atlanta Falcons, Baltimore Ravens and Philadelphia Eagles are teams he would consider. Joseph couldn't be reached for comment Tuesday.

i love it. he wants to play for a better quarterback, so one of his three best options is baltimore? Now, the ravens have a great team, but it is primarily due to its defense, oh, and jamal lewis. But, for Owens to put so much faith in Wright; well, it makes me smile.

Lots of hate for TO.

If I was a Falcon, Raven, or Eagle fan, I'd be a little psyched.

If he goes, I hope it is to the Falcons. I think SF makes a mistake if they let him go. I say alot of things to my friends and even others simply for shock value or to see their response.

I'm not going to judge whether TO's comments were serious, as a joke, or to entertain. TO is different, he's a bit of a headcase apparently, but big deal... he said something some people didn't like. It may be the reality of the cap situation that only one can stay. TO may have felt that when he does wrong (even if it's a simple action as signing a ball) he gets grilled, Garcia gets pulled over stinking drunk and the media reports it and moves on. Garcia is a local kid the people around here love. Garcia's DWI will be forgotten quickly by the media and TO's actions will linger throughout his career. TO's every move is criticized and brought up time and time again. TO isn't allowed to move on. Garcia can.

Fans that claim 'I don't want him on my team' when they are stuck with Todd Pinkston as their best WR are idiots (no offense to anyone in particular). If the guy can play and hasn't killed, raped, or robbed someone I want him on my team if he is a big upgrade. Even with his drops last year, TO will be a top 4-5 WR fantasy pick, with a legit possibility of finishing #1 among fantasy or NFL WR's.

It always surprizes me to see a 30-year-old who regularly clamors for media attention now claims that things were taken out of context once there is a negative reaction. Hey dumba** that internet thingy...people read it and hold you accountable.
I also never tire of hearing a public figure make a jerk of themself and send their representative out to explain the misunderstanding. I am a little disappointed thought, that he didn't just say the Meshawn was over and typed that stuff. "Not me-Meshawn"!

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?
