Owens, McNabb Remain At Odds
Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb said during his news conference today in Philadelphia that he sent Terrell Owens a best-wishes text message after last week's report that Owens attempted to commit suicide by overdosing on prescription pain medication.
Owens told reporters in Dallas that he never received such a message from McNabb.
There apparently won't be a peace brokered between the two before Owens's new team, the Cowboys, plays in Philadelphia on Sunday.
It is Owens's first game back at Lincoln Financial Field since the Eagles suspended and de-activated him last season, then released the wide receiver in March. Owens criticized McNabb repeatedly before and after the Eagles released him, and he took another verbal swipe today by telling reporters that McNabb has "gotten himself into a lot better shape this year."
Owens appeared before reporters at the Cowboys' Valley Ranch headquarters wearing a shirt that said, "Funny little football person." That's what he was called last week by the head of the Dallas Police Association after Owens denied the account in a police report that he'd tried to kill himself, saying instead that he'd suffered an allergic reaction to pain pills and nutritional supplements.
Both Owens and McNabb indicated they don't plan to shake hands before the game Sunday.
