McNabb Denies Approaching Shanahan About Owens

Yesterday Sal Paolantonio and Ed Werder of ESPN reported that Donovan McNabb told Mike Shanahan that he wanted them to try to sign Terrell Owens.

Today we find out that McNabb denies that he said anything about the Skins signing Owens.

“I never said that to anyone about T.O., It’s just not true,” McNabb told Rachel Nichols also of ESPN yesterday. “I’m in a new place, trying to get comfortable, not start anything or push for anything. I am very happy with the receivers I have.”

He also said the same thing to Michael Wilbone of  the Washington Post and said he has no desire to reunite with Owens.

I don’t know who is telling the truth in this situation, but I do know that some reporters make up stories.¬† I’m not saying this is the case in this situation but I know that some reporters make up stories.

I guess somebody can ask Shanahan whether McNabb approached him about Owens.

I think the pressue to come up with stories every day has forced some media members to produce false stories.

Maybe it’s just me…
But I thought one of the biggest benefits about trading McNabb away was that we here as Eagles fans don’t have to read or hear about the daily drama of being D McNabb..
Can we move on already and concentrate on the most important draft in 10 years for the Eagles
I am the only one tired of hearing about who he wants or doesn’t want on his team .. Good Grief… … Thanks G

I remember McNabb flat out lied to escape a quote from Pam Oliver a few years back. He says things that he thinks are private, and when they’re made public, he denies ever saying them. Who knows…maybe he is telling the truth here; but honestly, I doubt it.

He (McNabb) sounds like he’s perfect to enter “Politics” then, once his playing days are over..

LancasterEagle you are 100% right on how he threw Pam Oliver under the bus.

He likes to use Dion as his mouthpiece alot too, so he can “take the high road” and not say anything, only “comment” on what is being said.

Paulman I understand where you are coming from, but this guy will continue to throw his drama back Philly’s way. The only good thing is now we are not dependant on his “mental state” directly affecting our teams wins & loses. It is much better to be able to watch his act from another city and watch what effect it will have on the “Skins.

Anytime a reporter says stuff like “sources close to McNabb” or anything like that, it’s already sketchy. Not sure who’s telling the truth but I’d rather take the word right from the guy himself than someone who said they heard from “sources”.

Greenfan, how did he throw drama back to Philly? From anything I’ve read or heard, it’s the reporters that always ask or bring up Philly. Haven’t heard him just bring it up himself. Let’s face it, it’s the media. Just like G is here writing about McNabb even though he’s gone, other media will continue to bring up Philly when it comes to him.

Uh..ya think Scorpiodsu? He played here for eleven years and got traded like ten days ago. Yeah, Philly will be referenced when discussing McNabb. Man, I dont mean to constantly critique your posts, but you sure do come up with some stupid shit whenever this guy comes up on a thread.

Scorp are u related to #5? You are really Wilma, aren’t u?

Did you not listen to the man for the past 11 years? The same old sh*t over and over again. He was a good QB and did some good things while he was hear, but he was not the angel you make him out to be. It was time to shut his show down and try and win with a new leader.

Even Joe Montana got traded. I wish him the best, but I was really tired of his act.
