Terrell Owens and Donovan McNabb do not like each other. That much is very clear based on their recent interviews about each other.

Earlier this year, the former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback did an interview with Bleacher Report. Appearing on Untold Stories with Master Tesfatsion, McNabb said the drama between him and Owens broke up the Eagles.

“The offseason goes through and then all of a sudden there’s turmoil there and (Owens and the Eagles) are in a conversation going back and forth, and we had to answer those questions instead of focusing on what we need to do in order to get back to where we were,” McNabb said. “I thought that was a major distraction for us … That was something that kind of broke us up.”

This week, it was Owens' turn to fire some shots McNabb's way.

Owens, who played for the Eagles from 2004-05, said that McNabb was out drinking the night before Super Bowl XXXIX.

“Why would somebody lie, there were teammates that said he threw up in the huddle," Owens said.

“I’ve talked to teammates since then, and “know for a fact,” that he was out before Super Bowl XXXIX, drinking before the biggest game, pretty much of all our lives.”

The Eagles lost to the Patriots, 24-21.
