Quotational Therapy: Part 70 -- Black-On-Black Crime.
Donovan McNabb, Overrated Idiot-
Philadelphia Eagles QB Donovan McNabb is using the week of the Superbowl to play the pity card. Poor Donovan. And the race card. Poor Donovan.
Here are some of his comments:
Owens most famously took shots at McNabb during the offseason between the 2004 and 2005 seasons, and on into Philadelphia's 2005 training camp (though after declining his invitation to work out in Arizona, the two did not speak off the field until just before the start of the regular season).
There you have it. Donovan McNabb, ladies and gentlemen. Terrell Owens is one of the more objectionable players in the league, but these kinds of comments by McNabb actually make T.O. the sympathetic one. Of course Terrell Owens didn't want to play for this idiot. Of course some people in the Eagles locker room sided with T.O. over McNabb.
Now we know why.
Incidentally, the real reason for this ridiculous outburst is obvious, although nobody is saying it. McNabb, justifiably, is intimidated. He's intimidated by a force of awesomeness (who also happens to be an African-American quarterback) so great, it's difficult to fathom:
I had no plans of highlighting McNabb's comments in a Quotational Therapy session, but I also thought for sure that there would be more media hubbub over the sheer stupidity of McNabb's comments. I figured maybe something on par with the backlash Rush Limbaugh received for his comments about McNabb a couple years back. Nope.
The shine should hereby be off of Donovan McNabb, even if he remains a media darling.

Well, I'm from Philly and these comments from McNabb are in the very least several months too late. The "black on black crime" phrase though is really a stupid comment at any time. But if he was going to join the fight he should have done it when this whole thing was active. You know, Owens is self-centered and immature but but his self confidence seems to prevent him from getting bogged down brooding about trivial stuff. After McNabb's comments it seems TO was pretty successful at playing some long term head games on Donovan. If Donovan is so lacking in self confidence that he has carried TO's comments with him this long, God help the Eagles because it is obvious that Donovan isn't handling the mental side of this with any level of toughness - not good for quarterback material.

Black on black crime? Unbelievable. One millionaire athlete insults another millionaire athlete and he refers to it as a crime. Overrated idiot indeed.

HA... Great quotational therapy...!

Wow.' It's different to say if we had Michael Vick, Daunte Culpepper, Steve McNair, Aaron Brooks, Byron Leftwich. But to go straight to Brett Favre, that slapped me in the face, like what I've done and what I set out to do…"
So McNabb sees himself as a black quarterback and not just a qb? Let's play "which one is not like the other." Vick, Culpepper, McNair, Brooks, Leftwich, Farve. Hmmm Farve stands out, but not because he is white, but because he's the only one to have WON a Superbowl. Maybe if he had stopped at McNair he might have had a point. At least Air-McNair got to a Superbowl. But Donny's GOT to be kidding me that he wants to be compared to "soon to be back-up to Leinhart, Aaron Brooks" rather than Farve. PUHLEASE.

They lead truly tough lives.
I'll see if I can gin up some pity.
You know... I'm coming up short here.

One of the striking parts of this whole deal is how rehearsed that line seemed. As if he stewed over it for all these months, until some reporter finally gave him his spotlight.

Not to open a can of worms here, but. When was the last time a pure scrambleing QB won a superbowl anyway?
