Terrell Owens is still not over Super Bowl XXXIX loss
Former Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver, Terrell Owens is still reflecting on his Super Bowl loss.
The bad memories just keep piling on. As the Philadelphia Eagles prepare for Super Bowl LII, the media can’t help but reflect on the dark days for the Eagles. Now we all know the Eagles are getting their much wanted Super Bowl XXXIX rematch. But would it really be a rematch without bringing up the original game?
For those who don’t know, or should I say, don’t want to remember. The Eagles lost to the New England Patriots 24-21 back in the 2004-2005 season. Since then, the Eagles never made their way back into the big game. Now with less than a week to go, the Eagles are gearing up to get a second chance at defeating the Patriots in Minnesota.
As the players are working hard at practice, the media is doing their thing catching up with some old faces in the NFL. On Wednesday afternoon, 94 WIP Sports Radio caught up with former Eagles receiver, Terrell Owens.
Of course, we all know Owens for his off-field antics and standout personality, but we can’t help but remember his incredible playing days as well. Although Owens did not spend a lot of time on the Eagles roster, what he accomplished in 2004 was simply incredible. Unfortunately, his standout season In Philadelphia ended by coming up short in Super Bowl XXXIX. Just like the Eagles fan base, Owens can’t help but regret that the dream season ended in a nightmare.
It’s all good…
The last person who should be regretting the loss back in 2005 is Owens. After going against his doctor’s opinions and putting his body on the line, he finished the game with nine receptions and 122 yards. It was a game that Eagles fans will never forget and will forever appreciate.
Unfortunately, Owens’ relationship with the Eagles took a quick turn the following season. Everything went sour from his relationship with his coaching staff, teammates and even the fan base.
