Terrell Owens and Donovan McNabb feud, Philadelphia Eagles, Super Bowl


#Terrell #Owens just levied a shocking new accusation in his 15-year feud with former #Philadelphia #Eagles teammate #Donovan #McNabb.

#Despite #McNabb’s repeated denials over the years, legend has it that he threw up in the huddle of #Super #Bowl XXXIX against the #New #England #Patriots at the end of the 2004 season. #Owens not only countered that other teammates tell him they saw it — he offered a reason for it.

“I know there were teammates I talked to recently who said they saw him throw up in the huddle,” #Owens said on #Bleacher #Report’s “Untold #Stories” with #Master #Tesfatsion.

“I’ve talked to teammates since then and know for a fact that he was out the night before the biggest game pretty much of all of our careers there. There were people that saw him out and said he was drinking. I think that contributed to him throwing up in the huddle.”

#McNabb threw three touchdowns and three interceptions in the 24-21 defeat. #Partying the night before a #Super #Bowl is a path to infamy in the NFL.

#Packers receiver #Max #McGee admitted years later that he scored the first touchdown in #Super #Bowl history playing with a hangover. #Raiders offensive lineman #Barret #Robbins disappeared from the team hotel and went on a drinking binge in #Mexico on #Super #Bowl eve just a few years before the #Owens-McNabb incident. #Falcons safety #Eugene #Robinson was busted for soliciting an undercover police officer posing as a prostitute the night before the big game.

#McNabb and #Owens have been at odds since they were teammates. #Owens felt #McNabb didn’t appreciate how he escalated the #Eagles from years of playoff failures and wasn’t on his side against the organisation in a contract dispute. #McNabb was the victim of a few not-so-veiled shots by #Owens, who was later suspended for conduct detrimental to the team and released.

“Knowing all this information, I thought it was irresponsible, especially for somebody of his caliber and status and leader of the team,” said #Owens, who went on to play three seasons with the rival #Cowboys and finished out his career with the #Bills and #Bengals.

#McNabb was on “Untold #Stories” earlier this year and called #Owens a “major distraction” in 2005 when he was working out in front of his house for the media after he was sent home from training camp by then-coach #Andy #Reid.

#Until then, #Owens thought they had “squashed” the feud and were on cordial terms, but #McNabb said, “I give him a nice peace sign and keep it moving. I respect his time, I love my time. There is no need to dust off things that happened in the past.”

#Not good enough closure for #Owens, who took a shot at the way #McNabb finished his career on the bench with #Washington.

“He don’t make me,” #Owens said. “I’m in the #Hall of #Fame for what I’ve done and what I’ve accomplished.

“I appreciate the opportunity to have played with him. #Check my stats before I got there and check my stats when I left. #He is supposed to be one of the top quarterbacks in the league in his mind. #You can’t go to #Washington and not beat out #Rex #Grossman.”
