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.
