Donovan McNabb is now wishing he had Terrell Owens back. In what is being dubbed as a revealing reflection with ESPN’s Matt Mosley, McNabb says “It could’ve been great” if Owens stayed in Philadelphia, better known to us as Hell.
You can read the Hashmarks post about it here. McNabb says this about Owens:
“In his situation, he’s finally maturing at age 35 [actually 34]. Sometimes it’s you, sometimes it’s me. [T.O.] thought for so long it was someone else, but at some point, maybe it dawns on you that it’s not everyone else’s fault. I think once Bill [Parcells] left, T.O. realized that Jerry [Jones] truly loved him. And now he has a quarterback that he feels comfortable with. He’s listening. Sometimes you have to understand the reality of the whole situation, and I think he did that.”
What a ridiculous statement. McNabb shouldn’t be so quick to criticize someone’s maturity. I mean, here is a guy who vomited during the most important game of his life and led what goes down as the worst clock management ever in the history of the Super Bowl. Did he expect T.O. to settle for that kind of immaturity?
As I predicted, McNabb also reveals he will play somewhere else than in Philadelphia, and he is prepared for that eventual decision. Although he believes the Eagles will be atop the NFC East, rest assured that a slow start in Philly will translate into McNabb’s last season in the city of hell.
McNabb is realizing once again that the organization for which he plays did nothing to bring him a big-play receiver once again. In fact, after the T.O. debacle, the Eagles have been hesitant to sign any big offensive powerhouse. Now he is crying, so desperate he even wishes he had T.O. back.
