In a not-so-surprising turn of events, the Donovan McNabb and Terrell Owens feud still isn’t over, even after all of these years.
On Monday, Terrell Owens, a six-time Pro Bowler, and five-time Associated Press All-Pro made an appearance on Shannon Sharpe’s Clun Shay Shay show. It was there where he talked about his desire to start his own celebrity boxing match.
“When I was ringside, I had people asking me, ‘T.O., you next? You next?'” Owens explained. “And then I had one guy who asked me, ‘if you had to fight, who would you want to fight?'”
The Pro Bowl receiver only had one name on his mind. And that was the name of his former quarterback, Donovan McNabb. Despite putting up historic numbers in 2004 during their first season together, the relationship between the wide receiver and the quarterback quickly went south. And it appears that even after nearly twenty years, the two are still at odds.
“I’m dead serious, Shannon. I’d knock him out,” Terrell Owens continued. “I’d be controlled. It would be like a controlled anger. I’d be like a Navy SEAL. You know? They are cool, calm, and collected under all conditions. But there would be a fire burning inside of me.”
At first, Shannon Sharpe couldn’t tell whether or not Owens was being 100-percent serious. “So you would try and knock him out?”
“I’d knock him clean out,” Owens confidently replied. “I’d knock chunky soup from him from 2004. Trust me.”

Donovan McNabb Claimed that Terrell Owens Broke Up the Eagles
Like we mentioned before, the feud between former Philadelphia Eagles stars Donovan McNabb and Terrell Owens has been going on for nearly 20 years now. At this point, it’s sometimes hard to believe either of them.
But in an interview with Bleacher Report last year, McNabb blamed T.O. for breaking up the birds despite how successful they were together on the field. The Eagles were heading into 2005 with a stacked roster, but Owens was putting in a lot of camera time off of the field.
“He’s doing sit-ups, he’s doing push-ups, he’s playing basketball, he’s ordering pizza for the people out there. And we’re sitting there in training camp just like, ‘You’ve got to be kidding me,'” McNabb said. “We’re in our dorm rooms, and I’m just sitting there watching on TV. Brian Dawkins and Jeremiah Trotter were my roommates. And Dawk would come in like, ‘What’d he do now?’ I’m like, ‘Take a look.’ This is like ‘Days of Our Lives.’ It was unbelievable.”
“That was something that kind of broke us up. That was the most frustrating for me because I know what we could do, and, if we decided to just come together, what we could accomplish.”
