“I’ve talked to teammates since then and know for a fact he was out the night before,” Owens told Bleacher Report for their “Untold Stories” series “He was out the night before pretty much the biggest game of all of our careers.”
“There were people that saw him out the night before that said he was drinking,” Owens continued. “And I think that attributed to him throwing up in the huddle.”
Owens and McNabb have been engaged in a public feud since their days of playing together and it played a major role in the Eagles moving on from T.O. Owens also commented on his current relationship with McNabb:
I’ve tried. I tried to be cordial with the situation. I thought we had squashed it. At the end of the day, he don’t make me, man. … I appreciate the opportunity to have played with him. But check my stats before I got there and check my stats after I left. He’s supposed to be a great quarterback or one of the top quarterbacks in his minds, you can’t go to Washington and not beat out Rex Grossman.
