Owens blasts McNabb, organization

By Jim Swan

Inquirer Staff Writer


Terrell Owens dropped a few bombshells during an interview shown on ESPN's SportsCenter last night.

The Eagles wide receiver, who does not talk to Philadelphia reporters, was interviewed by an ESPN.com contributor, who asked Owens about comments made by former Dallas Cowboys receiver Michael Irvin.

Irvin, an ESPN analyst, had said that the Eagles would be better off with Green Bay's Brett Favre at quarterback, and in some respects, Owens agreed.

"He's a guy, obviously, a number of commentators will say he's a warrior, he plays with injuries," Owens said of Favre. "I just feel like [with] him being knowledgable about the quarterback position, I just feel like we'd probably be in a better situation."

Owens also was asked about how Donovan McNabb's injuries have affected the Eagles' performance this season.

"Our wins and losses are really predicated on how he plays," he said of McNabb.

"Everybody can point fingers at our defense, but it doesn't matter. Even when we were 28 [points] down [against Denver], I still had in the back of my mind that we could come back had our offense gotten in sync.

"I honestly feel with playmakers like myself, L.J. [Smith], and obviously Brian Westbrook, that we could've gotten back in the game, and that we did.

"It's hard to win ball games when you have turnovers, and we had a turnover right when we were about to go in to probably tie the game. That killed our momentum and killed our drive."

Owens was referring to an interception thrown in the end zone by McNabb when the Eagles had cut the Broncos' lead to 28-21.

Owens indicated to ESPN that he was not happy that the Eagles failed to recognize his 100th career touchdown reception, which he posted Oct. 23 against the San Diego Chargers.

"They claim to be first-class, and the best organization," he said of the Eagles. "I just felt like it was an embarrassment. It just shows the lack of class that they had."

I sort of agree with him. The Eagles would be better with a veteran guy like Favre. McNabb doesn't have the experience or decision making skills that he does.

Yeah, we can see all the good Favre is doing for the Pack this year.

Favre should have retired two seasons ago, he is not just past he his prime, he is declining steadily. Philly would be a worse team with him at the helm. McNabb has grown into fine QB, Owens is an idiot.

I was thinking about how ridiculous this all is and what it would be like if people in other professions pulled this kind of shit. Can you imagine Colin Powell doing sit-ups in his driveway while he was being "interviewed" by reporters. In between the crunches he spits out drivel about how Bush has made bad mistakes and he wishes that he could work under Gerald Ford.

true but, just as in SF, he cannot lead a team on his own anywhere. His TD's and league leading 773 yards are not helping them win games, so I wonder exactly how he helps his team?Football IS in fact a team game, Vick, T.O., Favre, even Montana couldn't lead a team to win the SuperBowl on their own.


So:

T.O. = the same value of anyone else on that team right now.

I've got odds on they threatened to take his money.
While they probably don't have a strict poison pill clause in the contract, simple assertions of frustration and bad faith given his notorious conduct and pattern offense obviously pricked up his lawyers ears in terms of succeeding.

I could be wrong, but $ seems to be the only language TO responds to, and threat of taking back his $$ / signing bonus, a la Ricky Williams, quickly will make the good solider fall into line.

TO may be good, but I'll take Steve Smith or Chad Johnson over him any and every day of the week. Even Randy is doing more for his team I think.

Not being a cancer should be a given, but this asschap doesn't get it, and doesn't realize greatness is not achieved by climbing the mountain of success on the backs of those who helped your reach it.

which could lead to the question:


Is having a wide receiver as their best player on offense a bad thing?


Does the selfish nature of the WR position make it more problematic than most?

This is what would happen if people like Green and Hicks and Vermeil don't spin things in the media. Massive controversy. Great example right here. Well maybe it wouldn't be a massive controversy if one of them came out and said "McCleon isn't doing good"... but it wouldn't be good for the team, at all.
