Owens and McNabb LOL
BETHLEHEM, Pa. (AP) - Donovan McNabb insisted he wasn't stung by criticism from Terrell Owens, laughing off the banished wide receiver's remarks before turning serious and telling him to "keep my name out of your mouth."
While Owens left his home for the Bahamas, McNabb joked with reporters, tapped the mikes and rubbed his hands together before taking his seat inside a jammed media tent shortly after Philadelphia's Friday practice.
"Yeah! C'mon, bring it!" McNabb said to laughter.
Owens again blasted McNabb on two separate interviews with ESPN on Thursday, calling the quarterback a "hypocrite" and saying the two of them could not be successful together.
Owens also said he had no desire to speak with McNabb.
"It's so funny to me how my name keeps getting thrown out there," McNabb said. "You've just got to have fun with it and that's exactly what we're doing."
Owens was told to go home Wednesday after a heated dispute with coach Andy Reid - and to stay there for a week.
He's since lifted weights and shot hoops in front of the reporters camped outside his house and hard harsh words for Reid and McNabb in TV interviews.
On Friday morning, Owens left his Moorestown, N.J., home with two suitcases and went to Philadelphia International Airport, where he told KYW-TV as he headed to a security gate: "I'm going to the Bahamas. I'm going to get a tan."
McNabb, light and smiling throughout his interview, agreed with Owens the two didn't necessarily have to speak to win.
"I still to this day see no reason for us to talk," McNabb said. "When we step on this field, it's all about business. We're professionals that line up and do the right thing."
This was the second time this year McNabb has warned Owens to stop talking about him.
After Owens complained that McNabb was tired in the Super Bowl, McNabb said, "Just keep my name out of your mouth," during a mandatory minicamp.
McNabb, who made a recruiting pitch to get Owens to Philadelphia before last season, was tired of hearing Owens complain.
"Now for my name to be thrown out again, this is the second time. Keep my name out of your mouth," he said. "Keep my family's name out of your mouth."
Owens called McNabb a "hypocrite" on Thursday because the quarterback said publicly that he did not want to meet with Owens, while T.O. said McNabb did try to arrange a meeting.
McNabb said he didn't learn until Thursday that his brother did reach out to someone close to Owens to arrange a meeting where the two Eagles could possibly work out their differences.
McNabb was bothered that Owens brought his family into his televised rants.
"My family doesn't need to be involved in any of this. I don't need to be involved in any of this," he said. "Now when you bring my family into it, I have a problem."
What a ****ing idiot. lol

It does too matter. If David Givens was giving us this kind of crap in New England, we would just let him go. This is TO your dealing with, and the Eagles can't reach the super bowl again with him.

Was he a big help last year? Yep. But they did get to the SB WITHOUT him.
When you start treating players with the treatment and status that you are giving him in this thread is where you run into problems. If coaches and owners would smack the snot out of these pissants from the beginning then wouldn't act like they do.
08-12-2005, 02:59 PM
And T.O. is gonna use his week off to go to the Bahamas and "work on his tan." This ****ing guy.
I can't blame him for making the best of his time off; but, he should be a man, call Andy Reid, apologize and get back to work. Oh wiat, I thought I was refering to someone that was a good person and not the most arrogant and selfish man in sports. 2nd year of your 7 year contract, honor it, it was your name you signed on the bottom line--were your fingers crossed?
Grow up! T.O. needed a mentor as a kid.

I think this is an overstatement.Originally Posted by davisville64
He is certainly ONE of the best; in terms of talent and ability, there is no disputing that.

t.o need a life changing humbling experience like getting in a bad car accident and having his legs amputated only then will he stop acting lke a jackass

do you guys remember that WR from the budwiser coms last year? thats how T.O sounds
what was his name, like leroy or something?

TO has just gone bonkers. He's in a great situation where he can be a vital part to a Super Bowl contender and does **** like this. I honestly thought he'd stop being a drama queen because he was going to a contender. At least he cracks me up now. His latest thing is that people are hating on him like they hated on Jesus. How is he even comparing his situation to Jesus' situation Jesus would have given his millions to the poor people he hung around with and I don't think he'd do the same. Here's the quote.

Talk about the man not the moron... anyone see DMacs entire press conference...
I for one am glad he was the 2nd pick of the draft instead of Ricky Williams... yes I wanted Ricky.. being old school NFC East..
But here is a man who was booed by the "Dirty Thirty" when he was drafted... Put up with the Limbaugh stuff and now this...
MVP season coming right up!

You Philly fans are harcore LOL. You guys booed Mike Schmidt (the best modern day 3rd baseman), Michael Irvin, pelted other teams with battery filled snowballs, and I've even seen a Philly fan throw a urine bomb at a Cowboys fan in a 49ers vs Bucs game, that was insaneOriginally Posted by EEmain

yup philly fans are.... um well they are *******s if you dont like philly teams. i was born and raised 20 min north of philly and boy did i hear it from all my friends about being a Bills fan. even got into a fight with one of my boys while we were playing a football game on playstation, cause i beat the eagles with the bills. crazy crazy people but they are a lot of fun to hang out with and drink with aslong as when chant starts you bust out with E! A! G! L! E! S! EAGLES!!!!!!!

It`s funny this thing will backfire on TO... from what I can gather the Birds deperately want him to play but are fully willing to go ahead without him... and there is no way he gets cut or traded... (correction) the Eagles structured his contract as such they will take a minimal cap hit but then he wins!... if you listen to David Joseph he says TO was not presented with a waiver to play in the SB.. Joe Banner also said "That is absolutely untrue... we talked about a waiver then decided that if TO was willing to risk so were we." ... and how the hell do you keep a waiver secret from the NFLPA? Or is TO so deluded he thinks a medical release form for the DOC is a waiver for the Eagles? Which happens to be the same Doc that Grant Hill blames for screwing up his foot!
Now ask yourself who is advising this man? He stands to loose 1.87Mill of the money he already got along with fines for everyday of Minis he missed... suspended for 4 games at a time at a cost of $820,000 per violation... not to mention the damage he does to his already less than stellar rep ! And which QB wants him on his team now that he trashed 2 Pro bowlers already? Or which coach wants to baby sit him? And which owner will pay him a $10,000,000 signing bonus and hope he doesn`t go off the reservation again?
Do you belive Rosenhaus knows what is going on? Then why was he shaking his head yes and TO is going NO! How much longer if your Rosenhaus do you work for free knowing this guy is flushing his future and your money down the drain?
What a waste!

I saw the urine bomb bro. I was 2 rows behind a kid who was 18-19 with his girl. This guy was wearing an Aikman jersey. The Eagles fan was 1 row in front of me. he kept talking **** to the Cowboy fan all game long and was insisting that 49ers fans help him "teach the boy a lesson because Aikman sucks" and threw a bag filled with urine at the terrifed poor SOBOriginally Posted by EEmain

Sounds good.. except.. who is he going to throw the ball too?Originally Posted by EEmain
This reminds me of the first part of last year when Carolina had all the pieces... but they were all hurt... LOL
McNabb could very well be poised to have a season that would be remembered, however, I ask again, who is going to catch what he throws? It looks like the team of 3 or 4 years ago; with a an upgraded D.

The Eagles don't need Owens, they do need decent recievers and they will win the superbowl - if they address the wideout position - they will be fine. Owens isn't a Quarterback he isn't even a Runningback. He isn't even the best player on his team (McNabb is). If the Patriots can win the superbowl over and over without a 'game-breaker' like Owens - please believe the Eagles can.
Although he is a great player, Owens attitude isn't the mark of a champion, and he will prevent the Eagles from reaching that status so long as he is there.
They should go get a reciever will less talent and less baggage and they should get the NFC Championship. They have core of the team already built.

did Otter say Aikman sucks, I guess a guy with that many superbowl rings sucks, typical philly fan still bitter, about all the ass kickens they have gotten from him in the past....

The WR don`t worry me as much as no back up to LJ or BWes... think everyone will be surprised with the WR this yearOriginally Posted by shootmeagain

He may not have been the best ever but he's ****in bad ass. The guy was clutch in big games most of his career. He didn't really need to post big numbers because he didn't have to throw more than 25 passes a game in Dallas' scheme.Originally Posted by CrAzyOttER

Not an Aikman fan, but he definately did not suck! The Cowboys were a dynasty and he ran the show, not to mention was a superbowl MVP.Originally Posted by CrAzyOttER
