    Good maybe they will play Westbrook more and get back to playing good football.

    I hope that Chad Johnson does not turn into one of these stories. Chad is not a great team player either, but I have hope that he can turn around and see the big picture....

    Whoa which team are you rooting for.

    I hope this hurts them even with all the distractions he caused I would have hated to seen him against our DBs. I think that is good news for us they were one of our tougher games left.

    Sorry for the confusion...Westbrook is on my fantasy team. I would never really root for the Eagles.

    Re: Owens suspended

    I'm doubting if any QB will ever be able to play with this guy or even calm him down. He's loudmouth, arrogant, selfish---everything you wish not to see from a team player.

    And everything that makes me glad we have guys like Bruce, Holt and Curtis.

    Suspended Eagle Owens got in a fight with Douglas
    Sunday, November 06, 2005
    By MARK ECKEL
    Staff Writer

    PHILADELPHIA - When Terrell Owens acted up in training camp, called out offensive coordinator Brad Childress and criticized quarterback Donovan McNabb, he was sent home for a week, but not suspended.

    When Owens wore a Michael Irvin Dallas Cowboys throwback jersey after the Eagles lost to the Cowboys, 33-10, at Texas Stadium disrespecting anyone who ever played for or cheered for the Eagles, not only was he not reprimanded, head coach Andy Reid condoned his actions.

    Owens went beyond all of that, when according to very reliable sources, he got into a fistfight with former Eagles defensive end and current team ambassador Hugh Douglas this past week in front of several teammates. On top of that he said the team "lacked class" in an interview with ESPN.

    The Eagles announced yesterday in a statement that Owens was suspended indefinitely for conduct detrimental to the team.

    According to one of the sources the Owens-Douglas fight "was like WWE Smackdown."

    Another source said both men threw at least two punches during the altercation and when it was over Owens challenged quarterback Donovan McNabb first and then everyone else in the room saying, "You want some. Anyone else want some."

    Owens and Douglas, who coincidentally share the same agent, Drew Rosenhaus, have been at odds since training camp and almost got into an altercation in an elevator at Lehigh University.

    When Owens demanded a new contract and threatened to hold out of camp, Douglas was one of the few players to step forward and say he should honor his current contract.

    The Eagles refused to comment about the situation, other than the statement that revealed the suspension.

    Owens was not at yesterday morning's walk-through and did not accompany the team on its trip to Washington for tonight's game, which will be nationally-televised on Owens' favorite station, ESPN.

    Don't be shocked, however, if he shows up on air during the telecast.

    While the Eagles were silent, around the league there were some smiles.

    "This is exactly what he did his last year in San Francisco," one NFC man said. "That's when he started ripping Jeff Garcia every week. He never changed. He's the same guy."

    An AFC personnel man also took enjoyment from the Eagles suffering.

    "The only reason this didn't happen last year is because they were winning," he said. "All it takes is a couple of losses for this guy to show his true colors. But the Eagles are getting what they deserve."

    According to Article VIII of the NFL's Collective Bargaining Agreement, a suspension for conduct detrimental to the team can last a maximum of four games. There are nine games left in the Eagles season.

    Owens, if the suspension is without pay, will likely appeal to get back the $205,882 per game he would lose.

    The team, however, could do what Tampa Bay did with wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson during the 2003 season.

    Tampa did not "suspend" Johnson, but head coach Jon Gruden sent him home for the season with six games remaining and listed him as an inactive each week. Johnson was paid his full salary, and was traded to Dallas, in exchange for wide receiver Joey Galloway after the season.

    If you're wondering what the Eagles might do with Owens after the season, forget the trade route. He's due a $7.5 million bonus in March. The team will surely release him rather than pay him and hope for a trade.

    Owens, knowing a suspension was possible, talked about it during his 20-minute Miami-based radio show, which is aired locally on WIP, Friday night.

    "Hey, if I am suspended, I am," he said, asking to be called Javier during the show, because he felt he had been sent to the witness protection program. "That would be a discredit to the team and obviously it would hurt the team. It would be a sad situation. Those guys are going to do the best to win the game and I'll be behind those guys 100 percent."

    Owens leads the Eagles in receptions with 47, in receiving yards with 763 and in touchdowns with six. He ranks third in the league in both receptions and yards and is second in receiving touchdowns.

    In Owens' absence, Greg Lewis, a first-time starter this year, who did not even start in college at the University of Illinois, will be the team's No. 1 receiver. In seven games this season, Lewis has 26 receptions for 284 yards and one touchdown.

    Rookie Reggie Brown, the team's second-round pick out of the University of Georgia, will make his first NFL start. Brown, as the team's No. 3 receiver, has nine catches for 108 yards and is still looking for his first touchdown.

    Billy McMullen (two catches, 60 yards) and former Redskin Darnerien McCants (one catch, 22 yards) will be the No. 3 and No. 4 receivers.

    Owens' suspension ends a strange week that began with an ankle injury he suffered in last week's 49-21 loss to Denver.

    After the game in the team locker room, word leaked that Owens injured his ankle even though he was not on the team's post-game report. An Eagles official was asked about the injury and re-stated that Owens was not on the report.

    Monday, Reid did add Owens to the injury report and said he would undergo a MRI on his ankle.

    Owens missed Wednesday's practice and was listed as doubtful for tonight's game. As only he can heal, Owens was back at practice, Thursday, and was upgraded to questionable.

    Thursday night when parts of his interview ran on ESPN's SportsCenter, the trouble began.

    Owens agreed with his friend, Irvin, that if Green Bay's Brett Favre was the Eagles quarterback the team would be undefeated.

    He did mention that if McNabb was healthy the team would have a better record as well.

    What seemed to get him in trouble were his statements regarding the Eagles refusal to make a big deal out of his 100th receiving touchdown, which he scored at home against San Diego.

    "That right there just shows you the type of class and integrity that they claim not to be," Owens said. "They claim to be first class and the best organization. It's an embarrassment. It just shows the lack of class they have.

    "My publicist talked to the head P.R. guy (Derek Boyko) and they made an excuse they didn't recognize it was coming. But that was a blatant lie. Had it been someone else, they probably would have popped fireworks around the stadium."

    This is the second time in his career Owens has been suspended. Former San Francisco head coach Steve Mariucci suspended him for one game after he danced on the star at Texas Stadium.

    What goes on in the heads of some of these monkeys? All the talent in the world, all the money they will ever need, fans, attention, everything! Yet, he gets all kinds of tuned up because the Eagles didn't throw an extravaganza over his 100th TD. If you ask me, TO could do better to worry about how many TDs his team has in a game instead of how many HE has in his career.

    What a wad, just play your position and quit worrying about your stats and your attention. Take a note from a Ram receiver, and do your job the way it should be done.

    Owens was Suspended by the League (I think) for four games, but Andy Reid has decided to suspend him for the season, this'll get Owens even more pissed off and I can see him not playing for the Eagles again.
