    Oh please.....

    DETROIT (AP) -- Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb injected a race element into his rift with Terrell Owens on Wednesday, saying the receiver's criticism amounted to "black-on-black crime."

    In an interview with ESPN, McNabb rehashed some of the low moments of his relationship with his teammate, making fun of Owens' driveway apology and bringing up the race angle.

    In November, responding to a question from Michael Irvin during an ESPN interview, Owens said Philadelphia would likely be in a better situation if Brett Favre was the quarterback instead of the banged-up McNabb.

    "It was like, it's unreal," McNabb said. "That's like me going out and saying, 'Hey, if we had Steve Largent. If we had Joe Jurevicius. It was definitely a slap in the face to me. It was a slap in the face because, as deep as people want to go into it, it was black-on-black crime."

    Not long after that, an NAACP leader criticized McNabb for "playing the race card" in explaining why he didn't run the ball as often as he used to.

    In November, the Eagles suspended Owens for the remainder of the season for his repeated criticism of the team, McNabb and several other issues. The team recently gave Owens permission to seek a trade, and this week he visited the Denver Broncos.

    On Wednesday, McNabb brought up some of the criticism he had taken through his career, and said Owens was simply piling on with his statement.

    "It's different to say, 'If we had Michael Vick or Daunte Culpepper or Steve McNair or Byron Leftwich," McNabb said of four black starting quarterbacks. "But to go straight to Brett Favre, that kind of just slapped me in the face like, 'Wow ..."'

    Owens apologized twice publicly -- once after his preseason holdout and then again, in his driveway, after he was suspended.

    "The first apology, that was to the organization," McNabb said. "Then, I was thrown in there -- 'If I offended Donovan in any way' -- you know. Instead of that, you could have just told me, hey, I apologize for the way it came out. I didn't mean it that way. Just come talk to me."

    McNabb.

    I read something about him liking one of the Titans' offensive coordinators.

    Don't remember where though.

    Oh wait..maybe that was the Dolphins.

    And that means he's going to Tennessee? Come on Zoom. McNabb is an Eagle for life. He has 6 years left on a 10 year contract. He's Andy Reid's Goto Guy on the squad that he has been busy molding for 7 years. He's the bets QB the eagles have had since Randall Cunningham. He's never leaving Philly unless its when he's 39 years old hanging onto a job and the eagles release him. Even then Id doubt it. IT'd be like Tennessee trading or relasing McNair in 2001.

    Just telling you what I read. I was a bit surprised too. I can't find it.

    I'm sure I read that. I'm a Dolphin fan from way back and when I saw that I thought we might finally get a QB.

    I heard about this on the radio today. Unbelievable.

    As for McNabb going to any other team, I would be shocked if Reid ever trades him. Anyone who lives here knows how much Reid loves loves loves McNabb.
