It’s been 15 years since the Philadelphia Eagles lost to the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XXXIX, but Donovan McNabb has yet to get it over it.

In an interview with Bleacher Report, McNabb ripped his former teammate Terrell Owens, blaming him for the downfall of that Eagles team.

During the interview, McNabb spoke on what went wrong during the Super Bowl, saying: I was trying to be perfect,” he explains, “and so some of the balls I threw obviously ended up being intercepted” – before placing most of the blame elsewhere.

Elsewhere was right on the shoulders of Owens.


McNabb went on to say that it was Owens, who ultimately broke the team apart:

The lead into the following year, I’m thinking [Owens] will be back healthy, we have [Jevon Kearse], we have guys elevating their game, gaining experience, and I’m thinking, ‘We’re going to be back.’ 

Then the offseason goes on and all of a sudden there’s turmoil here and there, different conversations going back and forth, and we had to answer those questions instead of focusing on what we need to do in order to get back to where we were. I thought that was the major distraction for us. 

He’s doing sit-ups, he’s doing push-ups, he’s playing basketball, he’s ordering pizza for the people out there, and we’re sitting there in training camp just like, ‘You’ve got to be kidding me.’ We’re in our dorm rooms, and I’m just sitting there watching on TV. Brian Dawkins and Jeremiah Trotter were my roommates, and Dawk would come in like, ‘What’d he do now?’ I’m like, ‘Take a look.’ This is like “Days Of Our Lives”. It was unbelievable.

But that was something that kind of broke us up. That was the most frustrating for me, because I knew what we could do, and, if we decided to just come together, what we could accomplish.

This caught the attention of Owens, who responded:

Get yo’ popcorn ready..
