Confirmed: Terrell Owens still hates Donovan McNabb
“Iconic Duo” is one way to describe Terrell Owens and Donovan McNabb but honestly, the more accurate way to describe them would simply be “dysfunctional.”
The Eagles quarterback and wide receiver tandem looked like they were going to terrorize the NFL for years in 2004. As we all know, the two of them also had massive egos that ultimately got in the way of them continuing their reign of dominance after the Super Bowl year.
The sit-ups heard ’round the world abruptly ended their relationship, and to this day, it doesn’t seem like they have been able to fix their relationship nearly two decades later.
In a recent interview on BetMGM Unleashed, T.O. was given a hypothetical involving McNabb and he did not disappoint.
Terrell Owens on Donovan McNabb
If Terrell Owens was given great Super Bowl tickets for the game on Sunday, but had to sit next to Donovan McNabb, he would watch the game at Popeyes.
Prime Super Bowl seats or sit inside a shitty fast food chain restaurant? A no brainer for Terrell Owens.
I will say, not even from an awkward history stand point but just in general, that McNabb would be on the list of “Top 5 Worst People to Watch a Super Bowl With” list.
Every opportunity he gets to relate what’s happening back to himself he’s taking it. “Yeah when I played in the Super Bowl……” or “ya know back when I was a pro bowler we’d never yada yada yada.”
Not to mention, McNabb has a long history of not being able to handle his alcohol very well. You pair that with his massive, broad frame, and that’s a strong “no” for a Super Bowl watch party.
Imagine sitting next to him and he’s sweating all over you, slamming tall boys, talking about “the good old days” and how “number 5 will always love you” when you lean over and ask him something completely different than what he responded with. And good luck getting any dip. He gives off big time, “hover over the buffalo chicken all game” vibes.
And don’t even get me started on the liability you’d go through leaving McNabb after the game.
(Insert your own joke here about having to drive McNabb home after he’s had one too many.)
It is pretty interesting that McNabb is one of the greatest quarterbacks in franchise history and Owens was only here for a cup of coffee, yet people still seem to love Owens more.
It doesn’t seem even close at this point. McNabb has alienated the entire fan base and then gets upset when we don’t show him love, like a high school girlfriend you can’t break up with.
All of the sudden, Terrell Owens and Popeyes seems like a no brainer.
