IRVING, Texas (AP) - Terrell Owens has a message for Jessica Simpson: Stay away.
The 27-year-old singer-actress has become Public Enemy No. 1 among Dallas Cowboys fans because of a link being made between her appearance at Sunday's game and the poor performance of her new boyfriend, quarterback Tony Romo.
Asked Wednesday about the Simpson scenario, Owens playfully chimed in: ``Right now, Jessica Simpson is not a fan favorite - in this locker room or in Texas Stadium.''
Late Wednesday, Owens further clarified the tone of his statements.
``Man, I was joking,'' he said. ``Everyone was laughing, right?''
The Cowboys lost 10-6 to the Philadelphia Eagles and Romo had what was statistically the worst game of his career, all while Simpson sat in a luxury box wearing a pink No. 9 jersey she proudly showed off for television cameras.
The problem for her is, Romo's previous worst game came last December at home to the Eagles when then-girlfriend Carrie Underwood was in attendance.
``With everything that has happened, obviously the way Tony played and the comparison between her and Carrie Underwood, I think a lot of people feel like she's kind of taken his focus away,'' Owens said, echoing the chatter on sports-talk radio and blogs. ``Other than that, she was hot on my list until last week.
``Oh, I got a message for her when we make the playoffs. Just stay tuned.''
