There were many memories made from the Andy Reid-era Eagles. The multiple NFC Championship games, the bone-crushing Brian Dawkins hits and offensive explosions from Donovan McNabb and Brian Westbrook.
Those were positive memories that Eagles fans will carry with them for the rest of their lives. However, there is one event from that era that was not necessarily a shining moment – the Terrell Owens saga.
Owens doing crunches and lifting weights in his driveway while answering questions from reporters. It was such a bizarre scene that nobody who watched the Eagles in 2005 will ever forget that event, and it is something that will be talked about for generations to come.
In an interview with Adam Lefkoe & Chris Simms, Terrell Owens was asked about his driveway antics, and he revealed a new and interesting piece of information – everything that came out of his mouth was what his publicist told him to say.
“She basically just to me what to say and what not to say” Owens confessed. He had a bluetooth in his ear that was barely noticed because every reporter and person watching was too distracted by his antics.
Now we know that his publicist walked him through the event, it’s amazing to think about how much more of a circus it would have been if he was answering questions on his own.
