Yesterday, in yet another display of his me-first attitude, the talented wide receiver went on a radio station and had the nerve to say that the team would be in a "better situation" if Brett Favre was its quarterback instead of Donovan McNabb.
From the Miami Herald.com:
PHILADELPHIA - Terrell Owens dropped a few bombshells during an interview shown on ESPN's "SportsCenter'' on Thursday night.
The Eagles' wide receiver, who does not talk to Philadelphia reporters, was interviewed by an ESPN.com contributor, who asked Owens about comments made by former Dallas Cowboys receiver Michael Irvin.
Irvin, an ESPN analyst, had said that the Eagles would be better off with Green Bay's Brett Favre at quarterback, and in some respects, Owens agreed.
"He's a guy, obviously, a number of commentators will say he's a warrior, he plays with injuries," Owens said of Favre. "I just feel like (with) him being knowledgeable about the quarterback position, I just feel like we'd probably be in a better situation."
As talented as Terrell Owens is, I'm surprised that the Eagles continue to put up with his antics. Granted, I've always been a fan of his infamous touchdown celebrations because frankly, they're entertaining and ingenuitive. But when it comes to thrashing your own teammates, especially midseason, Owens more than crosses the line.
He also makes himself look pretty stupid when you consider that Brett Favre hasn't been a Hall-of-Fame QB for years now (is Terrell aware of Green Bay's current W-L record?). Owens credibility would also be enhanced if he was a leader and if he had a Super Bowl ring. That's a "nah" on both. Winners can say whatever they want whenever they want, losers should stay low and keep their mouth shut.
