Donovan McNabb Fires Back at Terrell Owens

Terrell Owens hasn't been on the same field and on the same team with Donovan McNabb since 2005. It's been five years since we watched Owens berate McNabb on the sidelines between plays and five years since their unhealthy relationship was a constant headline on SportsCenter. Five years is a long time and it is an especially long time to hold a grudge.

Obviously, for TO and McNabb, five years isn't long enough.

Michael Vick may have stolen the show on Monday night when he threw for four touchdowns and ran two more in but possibly the biggest news was of McNabbs future with the Washington Red Skins. McNabb's performance was less than stellar in the Monday night game in which he hosted his former team, throwing for 295 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions. TO was watching and of course, being TO, he couldn't let bygones be bygones. He tweeted:

How do u justify a 78 million dollar contract w/this type of performance?

McNabb, who for the most part has seemed to be above responding to TO's insults, decided to respond Tuesday while on ESPN radio.

"It's unbelievable how they can comment on what I'm doing over here," McNabb said, while bringing up the 2-7 Bengals' lowly record.

Sigh....... This is what I write about now.

The NFL should buy some airtime on daytime TV and have a TO VS McNabb soap opera between The Young and the Restless and General Hospital. I may actually tune in to that show every once in a while.
