From the Mouths of Babes

Terrell Owens has written a book that should make Keyshawn Johnson's "Give Me the Damn Ball" look like "Charlotte’s Web." The book, cleverly titled "T.O.," spends 200 pages talking describing how Donovan McNabb is a hypocrite; a weak leader and someone who was jealous of Owens who even blocked his return back to the Eagles.

It's really not hard to imagine that. McNabb has spent years carefully cultivating a good-guy image. (Like that jerk, Cris Carter). McNabb has done that by never turning down an endorsement request. Seriously, is there anything this guy won't shill? McNabb makes Bill Cosby in his heyday seem under exposed. And then there are the rumors that McNabb spent his Super Bowl week two years ago preparing for the big game by attending the Playboy party and all other sorts of non-football festivities. Owens spent that week coming back from a broken leg. And if you remember, McNabb was plenty jealous of all of the attention Owens received during that comeback. Yeah, how dare Owens want to play in the biggest game in his career? Too bad his quarterback didn't feel the same way.

Owens also chronicles another rift in his relationship with McNabb when the quarterback ignored him on a pass play against the Giants at the Meadowlands last season. Owens said he confronted McNabb in the huddle and the quarterback responded with a stream of profanities. Wonder what McNabb’s mother, standing on the sidelines with a bowl of soup, had to say about that? The two (Owens and McNabb, not his mother; though you never know) had an altercation in the locker room according to Owens.

It doesn't paint a pretty picture of McNabb.

And because of that, the media will rip Owens for having the audacity to want to share his side of the story. The media is so quick to defend Saint McNabb, nobody believes Owens may be on to something. Maybe there is some truth to what Owens is saying. As one lucid talking head on the radio mentioned this morning, remember how you felt when Jose Canseco first came out with his book.

It's just too bad Owens didn't join the Giants, so he could expose Eli Messiah.

I wonder how long it took him to come up with the title to the book. I have my money on at least 3 days.

McNabb is a big pussy. It is well known here in Philly and I never ever wanted him here. Yes, I booed him the day he was drafted.

I love TO and the Eagles should have done everything to keep him.

adam b said...

yeah, since the eagles were so great before McNabb, Blonde.


and i, for one, will be sure to belive everything that Owens says. He is known as, if anything, a true man of his word, and one who never turns on people.

Receivers are replaceable.

Step back for a second and think: even if McNabb isn't quite all he seems, do you really think that Owens is the good guy in all this? Come on. The reason Owens got so mad in the first place was because McNabb (when asked) said that the Eagles could win the Super Bowl if Owens didn't play. (It was when Owens's status was uncertain.) How DARE McNabb say he could do anything without Owens? That started the rift. And let's not forget, after the Super Bowl, when the rest of the Eagles were dejected about losing, Owens kept saying "look at me, I played, you all said I couldn't do it." Owens is a sad, pathetic little man whose grandmama never gave him enough attention, causing him to make the rest of us sports viewers pay for it.

There were a number of different ways McNabb could have handled the Super Bowl prep. But he pretty much scoffed at the notion that T.O. would be playing.

Plus T.O. was right. He was the only reason the Eagles had a chance. McNabb pulled a Danny White and would have broken that record had it not been for T.O.
