Terrell Owens Fires Back at Former Eagles QB Donovan McNabb After Being Blamed For Team’s Downfall
Former NFL star, Terrell Owens is firing back at his former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback, Donovan McNabb amid Donovan McNabb’s comments on what caused the downfall of the Eagles. During their time together with the Eagles, Donovan McNabb led the team to three consecutive NFC Championship games, then reached the Super Bowl for the first and only time in his career during the 2004 season.
During Philadelphia’s Super Bowl XXXIX appearance in 2005, Donovan McNabb and his Eagles fell short against the New England Patriots. Unfortunately, the Eagles completely fell apart during the 2005 season. On Tuesday (Jan. 22nd), McNabb opened up on his time in Philly, touching on how disruptive Terrell Owens was on and off the field which led to their fractured relationship. McNabb begins,
“He’s doing sit-us, he’s doing push-ups, he’s playing basketball, he’s ordering pizza for the people out there and we’re sitting there in training camp just like, ‘You gotta be kidding me.'”
“We’re in our dorm rooms, and I’m just sitting there watching on TV. Brian Dawkins and Jeremiah Trotter were my roommates, and Dawk would come in like, ‘What’d he do now?’ I’m like, ‘Take a look.’ This is like “Days Of Our Lives.” It was unbelievable. But that was something that kind of broke us up. That was the most frustrating for me, because I knew what we could do, and, if we decided to just come together, what we could accomplish.”
Hours after McNabb’s interview dropped on Tuesday (Jan. 21), T.O. took to Twitter to fire back at his former QB.
“Let me know when u want to hear the truth!! Did u ask him about those DUIs and what he was doing at the parties I threw at my house during “our time” in Philly?!! Hmmm Don’t worry, I’ll tell ya!!”

To add insult to injury, T.O. continues to shade his former QB by taking a shot at McNabb’s infamous Campbell’s Soup endorsement,
“Ohhhh sh*t!!!! I can’t wait 2 tell my story!!! I’m bringing [popcorn], doing sit-ups and gonna eat a couple cans of “CHUNKY SOUP!!” This guy is a joke!! Talking bout I broke up the. Eagles!! Did u tell em that u vouched for the Eagles to pay Westbrook but NOT ME!! It’s on!”
T.O. ends his rant by saying McNabb must be over his alleged issues with alcohol.
Yes sirrrr! Grab a seat. And just like him, I handle grown man business. He didn’t want this smoke when I asked him after me & Hugh got into it that day but the same offer stands for him today as it did 16 years ago. ? This guy??!!! ? He must be sober now?? ????? ??? https://t.co/oLybeymLHD

T.O. played through injury against the Patriots in their only Super Bowl appearance together. T.O. managed to snag nine of 14 targets from McNabb for 122 yards in the 24-21 loss to the Patriots. The Eagles released T.O. in March of 2006 after two seasons together.
