This is at the exact point I was at after our week two embarrassment against the Cowboys. For the second time in not even a year, I was ready to post an anger-fueled open letter to Eagle fans. Then, they started to win again. The team worked their way back to 3-3, and I guess in my sense, everything was okay, Well, I could not have been more wrong. After the offensive explosion against New Orleans, I anticipated on the team turning a corner. I hoped for much better play. And, I believed that they would finally start living up to the hype, that was building in the preseason. Sunday Night Football in Charlotte provided the Eagles with a great test. That was, until we actually took the field. We sucked. To just put it out there, and not sugar coat it…..we blew! From crippling drops to asinine offensive line play, the Eagles never had a chance from the start.

So, who is to blame at this point of the season? I’m going to break it down for you, in the only way that I can. By not holding back….

Should The Eagles Re-Marry a Familiar Face?

Would T.O fit well into Chip’s system?

When Philadelphia fans think of the name Terrell Owens, what immediately springs to mind?   For
most, its words like “diva”, “cancer”, and “selfish” among others.  There are a number of others though, that like to view “T.O” as the dynamic, play-making superstar that he was.  Terrell Owens spent the first eight years of his career, playing for the San Francisco 49ers, before making his way to the Philadelphia Eagles.  Owens really established himself among the league’s best receivers here in San Fran, but it was in Philly that he cemented that status.  

After acquiring him in March of ’04, Owens helped power the Eagles to a 13-1 record, before a freak tackle (arguably intentional) by Dallas safety Roy Williams, put Terrell out of action with a fractured fibula and high ankle sprain.  His season was thought to be over, as the recovery wa
s expected to be around 9-12 weeks.   Well, Owens made his triumphant return to the gridiron, seven weeks later to lead the Birds to battle in Super Bowl XXXIX.  Owens caught 9 balls for 122 yards during the loss, but he gained a ton of respect from Philly fans for playing through the injury.  

Things took a bad turn, during the 2005 offseason.  Owens took a slighted shot at QB Donovan McNabb for vomiting in the huddle, during the final drive of the Super Bowl, saying that “he wasn’t the one who got tired in the huddle.”    The situation was never resolved, and eventually saw Owens sign with the division rival Dallas Cowboys.  

But.  What if I was to tell you that Terrell Owens himself, would want to come back home to downloadPhiladelphia?   You’d think I’m nuts, right?  Well, that’s exactly what I’m here to tell you.  The 41-year-old Owens was quoted as saying “Absolutely, yes, No question, no question about that.” when asked if he could help this current Eagles team.   As crazy as it may sound, I agree with Owens on this.  I believe he would be a major boost to a weak receiving corps.  Before I start getting hate, hear me out.   In Chip Kelly’s first two seasons, the Eagles passing attack was ranked in the top 10 of the NFL.  This year, it sits in 25th.

PHILLY PRESSBOX TRIVIA – EAGLES – COWBOYS #2

The October 8, 2006 Philadelphia Eagles vs Dallas Cowboys game at The Linc was dubbed the T.O. Game. It marked the return of Terrell Owens. It later became known as the Lito Sheppard game after Lito ran an interception back 102 yards for the final touchdown in the Eagles 38-24 victory. The Eagles trailed in that game 21-17 at the half but Donovan McNabb threw an 87 yard TD pass in the 3rd quarter and a 40 yarder in the 4th quarter that proved to be the game winner. Can you name the two players that caught the 2nd half TD’s?

Poor Poor T.O.

March 5th, 2012 by Craig C. | Comments Off on Poor Poor T.O. | Filed in Football, General

Who is in to help our fellow brother Terrell Owens with his financial woes? The latest report is, Owens might be headed to the big house for failing to pay his child support payments. $45,000 a month he owes for his four children. I am not divorced but I can say thank goodness that I stopped making babies after one child just in case. Then again, I was never a professional football player and making millions so my guess is my payments would have been a tad bit less.

I find it odd that Owens is not able to do better than the money he is making with the Allen Wranglers. I realize he is a headcase, and his skills have deteriorated but he is not an idiot. Remember his show with Chad Ochocinco? He is articulate. He is built like an old ford engine (that is a compliment). I realize professional athletes do not manage their money very well but he is not your typical oddball.

I never really cared for him as an Eagle, nor a Bill, nor a Cowboy, nor a Bengal but I was not a huge fan of McNabb either, but he did add some entertainment while he was here. I say, lets bring on Vick, Burress, T.O., and Adam Jones to name a few and bring home a title for the city.

If he declines an offer sheet, I am still willing to throw in the fifty cents and couple pieces of lint in my pocket to help him in his time of need. I think it would be tax deductible anyhow. Anyone else in?

Jeremiah Trotter Calls T.O. a Liar Over GQ Interview Comments

January 19th, 2012 by Johnny G | Comments Off on Jeremiah Trotter Calls T.O. a Liar Over GQ Interview Comments | Filed in Eagles, Football, General

Terrell Owens told GQ magazine in an interview that will air in the near future, that team captain Jeremiah Trotter told him not to read the part of the apology letter that mentioned Donovan McNabb. The letter was written by the Eagles front office back in 2005. Trotter took great exception to these comments last night via his Twitter account. He made several comments to Owens. We have them all here:

Trotter: “yo man y u lying to GQ Mag I never told u that call me ASAP!!!!!”

Owens then responded by saying “Lying about what?”

Trotter: “what you said in GQ mag. That’s a lie U got my # call me dude!!!!”

DeSean The Diva?

November 29th, 2010 by Christian | 9 Comments | Filed in Eagles, General, NFL, Sports

Be A Teammate, Not A Diva!

Reports are that DeSean Jackson was sitting in the locker room after the loss to the Bears with towel over his head, sulking, not talking to reporters.

Come on dude, are you kidding me?  You’re gonna start that sh!t now?  Acting like a baby – another spoiled, ungrateful star athlete – after a little over a season of pretty good ball?  Give me a break.  And while you’re at it, give yourself a break.  Do NOT fall into the easy trap of the T.O’s and Chad Ochostinko’s of the world.  Egotism is boring and ugly.  And it ruins careers.  Allen Iverson ring a bell?

DeSean, you are not bigger than the team or the game. You’re a good receiver, with blazing speed who can be an electrifying player at times.  But, let’s not get carried away.  You’re no Jerry Rice.
