When asked if it was time for 49ers to consider a QB change:
Owens: Who knows? That’s not my position to say we need a QB change, but Rat (Rattay) did a good job when he was in there. Whoever is in there, I’m going to catch the ball. Even if it’s (Ken) Dorsey, I’m going to catch the ball. All the quarterbacks can throw deep. It’s all about timing.
Of course, the media turned this into headlines such as, “Owens Hints At Quarterback Change” and, “Owens Spreads Blame, Calls Out Garcia.” Why? Because he was a targeted villain from the touchdown celebrations in 2000.
