Owens apologetic after causing another flap817-grey.gifstories;arena=nfl;feat=stories;type=psa;team=PHI;user=Named;ct=USA;st=DC;ac=202;gend=M;age=C;occ=13;cust=no;vip=no;sz=150x30;tile=5;ord=263291131137000?

NFL.com wire reports

PHILADELPHIA (Nov. 4, 2005) -- Terrell Owens apologized to the Philadelphia Eagles, one day after blasting the organization for not publicly recognizing his 100th career touchdown catch two weeks ago.

"I've had an opportunity to talk with the Eagles organization and I have learned that the team does not recognize individual achievements," Owens said in a prepared statement. "It has been brought to my attention that I have offended the organization and my teammates. Therefore, I would like to apologize for any derogatory comments toward them."

Shortly before Owens' apology, coach Andy Reid didn't rule out suspending the All-Pro wideout following his latest comments, which included more criticism of quarterback Donovan McNabb.

"I take care of those things in-house," Reid said. "I obviously will address the player and those people I need to talk to and work this thing out."

It's unlikely Owens would be suspended now that he's apologized.

In an interview with ESPN.com, Owens took shots at the team and McNabb. He made his 100th career TD reception in a victory over San Diego on Oct. 23, but the accomplishment was not acknowledged on the video screen.

"That right there just shows you the type of class and integrity that they claim not to be," said Owens, who became the sixth receiver in NFL history to reach the milestone. "They claim to be first class and the best organization. It's an embarrassment. It just shows a lack of class they have. My publicist talked to the head PR guy, and they made an excuse they didn't recognize that was coming up. But that was a blatant lie. Had it been somebody else, they probably would have popped fireworks around the stadium."

Owens also said the Eagles (4-3) would be better off with Green Bay's Brett Favre at quarterback.

"A number of commentators will say he's a warrior, he's played with injuries," Owens said of Favre. "I feel like him being knowledgeable about the quarterback position, I feel like we'd probably be in a better situation."

Owens and McNabb feuded throughout the summer and didn't speak to each other for a prolonged period. McNabb, a five-time Pro Bowl quarterback who helped the Eagles win the NFC championship last season, has played through several injuries this season, including a sports hernia that will require surgery.

Owens has 47 catches for 763 yards and six TDs in seven games. He's been upset with the Eagles since management refused to redo his contract just one season into the seven-year, $48.97 million deal he signed when he came to Philadelphia in March 2004.

I know they won't do it but they really should suspend the guy. The Eagles look like the biggest sackless POS ankle grabbers in the NFL right now. This guy just says whatever the F#@% he wants because he thinks he's too good to be punished! I know its a big game and everything and they know they need him, but still, all they talk about is being a strict, classy organization but TO is clearly making a mockery of that perception.

oh yeah and :eaglesuck

Hilarious. TO is never going to stop with the nonsense until he's really held accountable for his actions. Philly certainly isn't doing it. TO must be laughing about all the crap he gets away with. It would be completely understandable if DMAC, who is pure class, knocked his annoying a$$ out.

Man oh man, I can't win for him to the ATV Avenger to scare him silly again.

You know what I was saying this to someone else earlier today. I was saying If I were Donovan I would hang him out to dry throw the ball somewhere in the direction of Sean Taylor let him pop him a couple good times..

If TO thinks he can go around and be a jerk to everyone on the Eagles and not get in trouble for it, not only will he be the trashiest reciever but also the stupidist. When it is time for him to get punished he thinks he can just say sorry and everything will be ok...what a jackass.
