var ACE_AR = {Site: '898551', Size: '468060', CallType: 'IFRAME'}; Former Eagles wide receiver Terrell Owens told WIP in Philly that he believes Donovan McNabbe was jealous of him during their time together with the Eagles. “Well, the thing is, I think a lot of people don’t really know—how things played out everybody is going to blame me and now I’m the scapegoat for me not being there and some of the things that played out. I knew at heart what was going on, kind of behind the scenes. I’ve talked to friends, I’ve talked to players, I’ve talked to coaches that really knew what happened and what transpired during my time there. My thing is, I had nothing but respect and love for Donovan [McNabb]. I think he felt kind of slighted at how honestly, at probably the way the team, well actually the city, just embraced me while I was there considering when he got drafted they [fans] didn’t want him there and things like that. And then when I came there and I played so well—I wasn’t trying to take away from Donovan’s limelight or anything when I came there,” Owens said. “I had pretty much my own celebrity somewhat, rock star status prior to coming there and when I got there and I added what I had to the team, that was really music to the city so to speak. So I don’t know what it was that he didn’t like or what he thought I was trying to do, but like I said, my intentions were sincere as far me as me coming there, wanting to play there, get to the Super Bowl which we ultimately did, and I think he got, you know I guess, annoyed on how the fans on game day—I would score. I could still hear those fans chanting my name, ‘TO, TO, TO, TO’. I can hear that like it was yesterday. And then, again, playoffs—main questions they asked him was ‘Are you guys gonna win, can you guys win without T.O?’ That had nothing, really—it did have something to do with me, but I wasn’t asking those questions. I think he kind of got upset and annoyed at the fact that he felt his skills were kind of being undermined as one of the reasons why they got to the Super Bowl.” What Owen’s is saying could be true, but we’ll never really know unless McNabb admits to what TO is saying and that’s highly unlikely.   h/t Black Sports Online Need NFL Tickets?

Eagles Face Tough Decision On Brent Celek

    Brent Celek is set to make four million dollars in salary next season, is that too much for the Eagles to pay? (Image courtesy of Philly.com) Brent Celek stands as one of the Eagles longest tenured players, selected in the fifth round of the 2007 NFL draft.

Eagles need duo behind McCoy to step up in 2014

Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy had a fantastic year in 2013. He’s in the prime of his career, and it’s hard to argue that he isn’t the best running back in the game. But what about the two guys behind him on the roster? Chris Polk and Bryce Brown are obviously working with limited carries behind McCoy. But in today’s NFL, injuries can happen at the drop of...

Eagles unlikely to find backup QB via free agency

I talked about this a bit last week, so I’ll just rehash what I previously discussed. Since it seems Michael Vick’s days in Philadelphia are over, the Eagles are (probably) now in the market for a third quarterback. With how the franchise has asserted itself the past few seasons — both with roster moves and coaching changes — it appears that the Eagles are headed in a more...

Nick Foles Continued Evolution Crucial

The Eagles will now go as far as Nick Foles will take them. His continued development will be the top storyline to watch this offseason. (Image via Philly.com) Nick Foles' wildly successful 2013 regular season was strong enough to cement him as the Philadelphia Eagles starting quarterback this season and moving forward, but that by no means is validation that he has become a...

NFL executive: Michael Vick will be a starter in 2014

An NFL executive told Judy Batista of NFL.com that he believes Michael Vick will land a starting job even though he was benched this past season with the Eagles. “There are too many teams that are in need of an upgrade for him not to be looked at as a starter,” the personnel executive said. “I could see a team signing him, and developing a young guy. Vick could be a very good...

McCoy’s nemesis tops list of free agent running backs

Back in October, Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy voiced his opinion on Twitter when he replied to a Skip Bayless tweet, saying that Denver Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno “sucks”. It seems like McCoy’s comments regarding Moreno stem from the fact that the Broncos’ ball-carrier was selected ahead of Shady in the 2009 NFL draft. McCoy probably feels like...

Could the Eagles target a running back in the draft?

Don’t be shocked if the Eagles draft a running back with their first-round pick. Sorry, I had to. Yeah, that’s not happening. I understand that the Eagles value roster competition and the idea of drafting the best available player, but they wouldn’t take a running back right off the bat. Later in the draft? Well, that’s a different story. Behind LeSean McCoy, the Eagles’...
