Eagles' CBs jogging memory banks on T.O.
That they played alongside Terrell Owens for two years might give Philly's CBs an edge on Sunday. Then again, it might not.
Then again, the studious Brown, a film-room fanatic who prepares off the field almost as hard as he does on it, theoretically shouldn't have to resort to celluloid scrutiny of the Dallas Cowboys' wide receiver and former teammate. For portions of two seasons in Philadelphia -- when Owens wasn't suspended or injured -- Brown and fellow cornerback Lito Sheppard worked against Owens in practice. Sheppard is expected to return to action Sunday after battling injuries the past three weeks.
In the NFL, while familiarity does breed contempt at times, it just as often can result in competitive advantage. Count on a little of both elements when the Cowboys visit Lincoln Financial Field for Sunday afternoon's much-anticipated return of Owens; yeah, expect him to be castigated loudly by the throaty Philadelphia fans.
