The outspoken and talented Terrell Owens has once again ignited an additional fire in his relationship with a former teammate – and yet again, the target is Donovan McNabb.
Say what you want about T.O., as he’s a superbly talented wide receiver that is equally as outspoken – and giving him a soap box such as Twitter – well, you know there will be a fair share of opinions to emerge from his account on a regular basis.
The most recent lines – albeit somewhat tame in the eyes of many – is still a miniature jab in the direction of former teammate Donovan McNabb – who earlier today signed a 5-year, $78 million dollar contract extension with the Washington Redskins.
Following the contract extension, McNabb and the Redskins faced off against Michael Vick and the Eagles on Monday Night Football. The result wasn’t just bad – it was record-setting ugly.
When the night was over, Michael Vick had filled the stat sheet and the Eagles left D.C. with a 59-28 victory over the ‘Skins.
McNabb’s line could’ve been worse: 17-31, 295 yds, 2 TD and 3 INT – though two of those completions (to Fred Davis and Anthony Armstrong) accumulated nearly half of his receiving yards.
As for T.O., his response to the overall situation on Twitter was as follows:
terrellowens Terrell Owens
How do u justify a 78 million dollar contract w/this type of performance?

Is this really a game? 59-28! I’m happy 4 Mike Vick.
The game was certainly an ugly one. But someone might want to remind Owens that the Bengals are currently 2-7 on the season – and going nowhere fast.
Again, it was a very subtle jab, but we all know who it was directed at.
Just saw on Twitter, a mention of the situation – and how McNabb fired back at T.O. – as mentioned on the Pro Football Talk website. Here’s the link featuring McNabb’s response to what T.O. had to say above…
Yeah, honestly, I was thinking the same thing – though there are some additional reports coming out today – and the deal doesn’t sound as bad as it did yesterday. The guaranteed money is reportedly just under 4 mil and there’s a possibility that Washington still deals him away in the offseason. Now they just control his rights, so if they decide to move him, they may be able to get some much needed draft picks to build this team up more.
I added a comment and I think it worked this time. Let me know if you got it – and if so – I can come back and add some more quotes.
The answer is from Wednesday through Monday night.
When I heard about this deal with Washington and McNabb my first thought was,” what in the wild world of sports is goin’ on here”. He can’t run the 2 minute offense and they want to give him a raise. I knew the Redskins management were bad, but this is just crazy.
When I heard the news, I tweeted “Sure is a lot to pay for a back-up quarterback.”
Hey, I’ve got a new caption contest up at the Chump…
And where and for how long are you gonna be in the Sunshine State?
