Donovan McNabb Says Terrell Owens Drama Broke Up the Birds

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Is Terrell Owens Yoko Ono?

Seems that way, according to Donovan McNabb, who recently appeared on Bleacher Report’s “Untold Stories” and explained what happened 15 years ago when T.O. did all of that nonsense, the sit ups in the driveway and everything else that made you scratch your head back then.


Donovan on  T.O. after the Super Bowl year:

“I’m thinking he’ll be back healthy. We have ‘Freak’ (Jevon Kearse), we had guys that were just elevating their game, gaining experience, we’re gonna be back. And so the offseason goes through and all of a sudden there’s turmoil here and there are conversations going back and forth and we had to answer those (off field) questions instead of focusing on what we need to do in order to get back to where we were. And I thought that was the major distraction for us. He’s doing sit ups, 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 and Brian Dawkins and (Jeremiah) Trotter were my roommates. And Dawk’ would come in and he’s like, ‘man what did he do now?’ And I’m like, ‘take a look. This is like Days of Our Lives.’ It’s unbelievable. That was something that kind of broke us up. That was the most frustrating for me because I knew what we could do….”

Yeah, that was something else back then. Talk about needless drama. Donovan never won a ring, nor did T.O., but maybe Andy gets over the hump finally next weekend.

  1. Was it T.O.’s fault when “5” had to be physically dragged out of a Jacksonville strip club at 8am the morning of the SuperBowl.

    1. Why is TO wearing a ring, he never got a ring.

      selfish punks like TO never win rings
      TO = no ring
      Randy Moss = no ring
      LeSean Mccoy = no ring
      Allen Iverson = no ring, wife beater
      Carmelo = no ring
      Harden = no ring
      russell westbrook = no ring
      barry bonds = no ring

      1. Selfish punks don’t come back from a broken leg 3 weeks early to help their team win the Super Bowl. McPuke was always a gutless, passive-aggressive baby who took even less responsibility for his fuckups than his boss did. Probably the worst big-game quarterback of all time. Only time you can say that he carried his team to victory was the 2001 Bears divisional game.

  2. TO was a tool that year, just like the Odell’s and AB’s of this era. Bottom line was that the Eagles should have just paid the man his money

    1. You’re right…..they should have paid him. They had TO at the peak of his carreer. They easily could have been back in the Super Bowl the following year. Instead, they had to wait 13 years to get another crack at it.

      1. It wasn’t TO that fumbled, threw 3 picks and vomited (FACT)…..Guy nearly won the damn game hisself…..Number 5 will ALWAYS choke…..Fuck off you drunk prick

  3. Both T.O. and McNabb are dicks, bad teammates. But T.O. is in the Hall of Fame and McNabb will never be in the Hall of Fame.

  4. And not only should they have paid him, but they also should’ve kept their mouths shut when he first approached them after the Super Bowl loss (privately by the way, it was the Eagles’ front office that went public with the news that TO was demanding a new contract) and worked out a deal with him, instead of whipping up the masses about TO violating “the sanctity of his contract”, like contracts are sacred documents. Big business breaks contracts every day, one of Roger Goodell’s first moves as Commissioner was to tell Reebok that the 10 year license deal they signed with the NFL just 2 years earlier was null and void. “If you don’t like it, sue me”. To sum up, blame the Eagles’ front office for that fiasco the Summer of 2005 – a couple of million extra for TO and that team could’ve gone back to the Super Bowl a few more times…
