Dallas will face their first major test of the season on Monday night when they take on a resurgent Philadelphia Eagles team. Many people are considering this the game of the weekend to watch and that includes the OSU vs. USC game on Saturday night. And of course the it would not be a Cowboys games under the lights without T.O. putting his two cents in. As we all know there is no love lost between Owens and the Eagles organization.
Owens told the media yesterday that he felt he was “too big for McNabb” and that is what led to the split between the two. A split that would cost T.O. the majority of the 2005 season, and would end with him moving to the Cowboys.
“The fans and just the excitement of me coming there and being there, it became too overwhelming for Donovan,” Owens said in his Thursday meeting with the press. He continued on to say; “I think at one point in time, I will say that we had a good relationship. I think I got too big for Philly, too big for him. I just feel like in a sense that he felt like I was just probably getting too much attention.”
The Philly Dallas Rivalry has always been a big one in the NFC, but in the wake of the T.O. deal the rivalry has reached a new level. And it seems that each year, the rivalry just continues to grow. This year, the Eagles and the Cowboys are the cream of the crop in the NFC East, and Monday night’s game will go a long way in giving one team a leg up on winning the division, and coveting that all important bye week in the opening round of the playoffs.
This should be a good one, get your popcorn ready.
