With the Cowboys back at practice, the WR situation took a turn for the bizarre:
Parcells is so mad at Owens that he rips Glenn …
Glenn's still receiving tough treatment from Parcells roughly 10 years later.
He got an earful from Parcells for missing practice Monday because of painful blisters on the bottom of his feet.
"He's definitely on me," Glenn said. "I can't have nothing wrong."
Meanwhile, receiver Terrell Owens hasn't practiced in 12 days because of a sore left hamstring and didn't get as much as a playful jab from Parcells.
"We need to see something here pretty soon," Parcells said. "That is the truth. We need to get him in the offense. He has missed a lot of work."
Owens said he's making progress. He did more rehab work Monday than any time since he first missed practice Aug. 3. But Owens would not put a timetable on his return, saying he's day-to-day. He missed the preseason opener Saturday and doesn't know if he will be ready for Monday's game against New Orleans.
"I feel better than I did last week," Owens said. "I am encouraged by what I have been able to do. But I don't want to jump out there because I am feeling good. It's still day-to-day. But I am looking to do more tomorrow."
Matt Mosely on the case …
Several of you have contacted me about a conversation that Bill Parcells had with Terry Glenn before practice. I know it's been reported by The Ticket radio station that Parcells cussed out Glenn, who missed his second practice of camp with blisters on his big toes.
I didn't witness the conversation, but our Todd Archer reports that it was definitely one-sided. Thanks to my friends at Fox 4, I just watched video of the conversation, and Glenn appeared to receive quite a tongue-lashing.
I'm not trained in the art of lip-reading, but I can recognize an expletive when I see one. Parcells dropped a couple on Glenn, but the conversation only lasted a couple of minutes.
What you should keep in mind, though, is that Glenn is one of Parcells' all-time favorite players, and those are often the ones he's hardest on. Just thought we'd cover the issue since several of you seemed concerned.
Galloway on QB stuff …hey, they sent him there, he has to stir up something, right?
Vikings lose 1st rounder Chad Greenway for the year ….
Moss returns and torches his old team …
Randy Moss didn't torch the Vikings during the game. He did it afterward.
"To hell with them," he said.
He piped up with that right after saying he "wanted to come in and see the fans and give them something to really scream about because I've had my fun here in this Metrodome, and they've had theirs, too."
The only screaming for Moss came during Monday night's pregame introductions. He got what he often got during his tenure with the Vikings. A big cheer.
"It makes me feel good to know that I'm still loved here (despite) the bad blood that kind of spilled when I left," Moss said.
This will be his second season with the Oakland Raiders, but you can tell it still gnaws at his innards that the Vikings traded him.
"From an organization standpoint, I had no care, no feelings, nothing for the Vikings organization. What they did is what they did," he said after his first game against the Vikings since being traded. "When the trade went down, there was a lot of smoke and air that couldn't be cleared up right away. There were a lot of people shying away from questions and answers. One thing I didn't have was an answer of why it happened. I kept asking why it happened, but I never got an answer."

Ink for the Ticket’s debut …
Occasionally, it turns out, the class clown actually can grow up to be an outstanding citizen of the community.
Saturday night’s debut of KTCK-AM “The Ticket” as the radio flagship of the Cowboys proved that. For five hours, the Dallas sports-talk station’s famous and popular shtick was put on temporary hold, and a very professional broadcast was delivered.
No references to Bill Parcells as the “New Jersey Con Man” or the “Glorified Gym Teacher.” No Fake Jerry Jones. No flatulence sound effects.
The Ticket’s bow as the home of the Cowboys was straight down the middle, and surprisingly well-packaged.
