  • Owens already in the ears of Philly

    Steve Patton, Eagles beatewriter, that Owens is already complaining. Supposedly, McNabb throws the ball too quick and too hard for him to catch. Plus T.O. went on saying that Jeff Blake is a better passer, because Blake does not throw it as hard.

    Owens Trashes McNabb In New Book
    by RamWraith
    Jason Rosenhaus.

    And not shockingly, Owens spends much of book trashing former teammate McNabb and blaming McNabb for the fallout between the two stars that led to Owens' exile from Philadelphia.

    In the book, Owens paints McNabb as a hypocrite, a weak leader and someone who was jealous of Owens and blocked Owens' return to the Eagles after a four-game suspension.

    And Owens paints himself as a heroic but sometimes flawed figure who was wronged by McNabb, arbitrator Richard Bloch, coach Andy Reid and the Eagles.

    "I accept that I played a role in tearing apart the Eagles season, but the blame was not all mine," Owens said.

    But Owens puts most of the blame on McNabb.

    Owens' public criticisms of McNabb last fall directly led to the end of the All-Pro receiver's career in Philadelphia.

    Giants Game Was Beginning Of Feud

    In the book, Owens says it was one play in a game in a 27-6 win over the New York Giants in November 2004 that upset Owens and convinced him that McNabb was jealous.

    "I couldn't believe it," Owens said about a pass play where McNabb decided not to throw him the ball. "Donovan had time to get the ball to me. Donovan ignored me, he ignored Coach Reid's design."

    Owens said he returned to the huddle and ask McNabb about the play, and McNabb responded with an obscenity to Owens in front of teammates.

    In his opinion, Owens then knew McNabb was deeply jealous of his popularity in Philadelphia.

    "I was getting so much of the Philadelphia glory that used to be his," Owens said.

    Owens then said he got into a confrontation with McNabb after the Giants game in the Meadowlands locker room and running back Dorsey Levens broke up the two men.

    "Donovan was never the same with me again; things were only going to get worse," Owens added.

    Owens Compares Himself To Willis Reed

    Owens also claims that McNabb downplayed his role on the team after that and blames McNabb for turnovers that led to the Super Bowl loss to the Patriots.

    He also compares his Super Bowl performance with the legendary performance of Knicks star Willis Reed, who helped his team win a title playing on one leg.

    Owens also said it was his financial advisor who inspired to get try to redo his Eagles deal.

    "I wanted to send a hungry, aggressive agent into the Eagles' nest," said Owens, who hired Drew Rosenhaus.

    Owens also talks about his locker room fight with former Eagles defensive end Hugh Douglas and his soured relationship with Eagles head coach Andy Reid.

    Owens also said he was deeply embarrassed that he was made to apologize about comments he made to a teen journalist about McNabb and the Eagles.

    Owens at it YET again!
    by Milan
    Nov 6 Mark Eckel, of the Trenton Times, reports Philadelphia Eagles WR Terrell Owens had a fistfight with former defensive end and current team ambassador Hugh Douglas. The fight occurred in front of several of his teammates. 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 QB Donovan McNabb first and then everyone else in the room saying, "You want some. Anyone else want some." The Eagles refused to comment about the situation, other than the statement that revealed Owens' suspension. Owens and Douglas have been at odds since training camp and almost got into an altercation in an elevator at Lehigh University.

    Reid says T.O. will stay away until issue is settled

    BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid called the ejection of Terrell Owens from training camp in-house business, adding the tempestuous wide receiver would not be permitted back to camp until the two of them fully discuss the problem.
    Advertisment

    Owens said he was just happy to have a week off.

    "I'm going to work with T.O. and only T.O.," Reid said Thursday in his first comments since Owens was sent home Wednesday.

    That was about all Reid said despite numerous questions on a variety of subjects about the playmaking, showboating Owens, who was asked to leave camp Wednesday after a heated exchange with Reid.

    Owens, meanwhile, emerged from his house in Moorestown, N.J., after noon on Thursday, signing autographs to the delight of several dozen fans who passed the time throwing footballs and yelling Eagles chants in his suburban cul de sac. Owens told reporters he had not spoken to the team.

    "Why would I talk to them? They gave me a week off," he said.

    When asked why he had the time off, Owens remained elusive.

    "What do you think?" he said. "You are asking a dumb question right now."

    Owens and agent Drew Rosenhaus -- who had arrived in midmorning -- departed for what the agent said was lunch and a meeting.

    Suddenly, Owens pulling a Sharpie from his sock or posing on the Cowboys' star seems downright tame.

    On Wednesday, Owens told Comcast SportsNet that his ejection by Reid "was just a difference of opinion. I was defending myself."

    Defending himself from what, it's not exactly clear.

    Owens refused to say what the argument was about, and the Eagles issued only a brief statement saying Owens was not expected to return to the team until next Wednesday.

    But this was the risk the Eagles were willing to take last year when they traded for Owens because they thought he could help them win a Super Bowl.

    Now comes this.

    For the fifth time in six days, Owens did not practice Wednesday because of a groin injury suffered last week. Instead, he worked out with the assistant trainer for about 20 minutes, catching balls from a machine and doing some light running. He did not speak to reporters or acknowledge the fans who chanted his name.

    Between sessions -- the Eagles had a special teams practice Wednesday afternoon that Owens was not required to attend -- Owens and Reid started arguing during a meeting.

    Reid asked the injured Owens to leave after their discussion, according to Rosenhaus, and Owens' publicist, Kim Etheredge.

    Owens then got his belongings and cleared out of training camp at Lehigh University.

    "If the truth needs to be told, then...

    T.O. Gets Lots of Love From Peers
    by txramsfan
    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20051213/..._party_fallout

    PHILADELPHIA - Terrell Owens had the microphone and all the attention from a crowd filled with teammates, NFL stars and a few celebrities at his birthday bash.

    Already banished from the Philadelphia Eagles, Owens could've taken the opportunity to diss Donovan McNabb again. He could've criticized the Philadelphia Eagles for suspending him four games and deactivating him. He could've called out coach Andy Reid or anyone from the front office.

    Instead, the All-Pro wideout professed his love for the city of Philadelphia and his teammates on the Eagles though they're really his ex-mates now.

    "That's the side of Terrell that unfortunately people who aren't close to him don't get to see," Kim Etheredge, Owens' publicist, said Tuesday. "That's how he is when he's in his element, surrounded by family and friends."

    Perhaps Owens chose his words carefully because of the grievance the NFL Players Association filed on his behalf against the Eagles last week, claiming the team breached Owens' contract by trying to get back part of his signing bonus and by leaving him inactive for the rest of the season.

    However, the party was invitation-only and reporters weren't on the guest list, so Owens could've said whatever he wanted without worrying much about any repercussions.

    Maybe time away from football softened Owens and made him consider changing his ways. Then again, a defiant Owens vowed he'll return, saying: "I ain't ever going to let anyone change me."

    He won't get an argument from any of the people who helped him celebrate his 32nd birthday Monday night at Jay-Z's 40-40 club in Atlantic City, N.J.

    "Just do what you do," Eagles defensive end Jevon Kearse said he'd advise Owens. "Be you."

    Kearse was among at least 19 Eagles, including players on injured reserve and the practice squad, who turned out to party with Owens, one day after the reigning NFC champions were eliminated from playoff contention with their sixth loss in seven games.

    Running back Brian Westbrook, cornerback Lito Sheppard and wideout Todd Pinkston each on IR were there. Other starters included tight end L.J. Smith, guard Shawn Andrews and defensive end Trent Cole. Veteran defensive linemen Hollis Thomas and N.D. Kalu also went.

    "Personally, he never did anything to me," Smith said. "He invited the whole team. That says a lot. He's a great teammate."

    Added Kearse: "He's a wonderful teammate."

    Not everyone would agree. Owens wore out his welcome in San Francisco after eight seasons and lasted just 1 1/2 years in Philadelphia, despite his superior talent and skills.

    Still, he has plenty of supporters on the...
