Number5

Recommended Posts

With all the snot nosed remarks about the lack of leadership and the "lack" of support from his teammates, McNabb gets the boost of confidence that we Eagles fans have been waiting for.....and it comes from our emotional and defensive leader! :cheers: :cheers:

Be careful, Dawkins tells Owens' suitors

"Any time you have something that can affect your team and your locker room, you might want to stay away from it," he said.

For The Inquirer

HONOLULU - Eagles safety Brian Dawkins cautioned the Denver Broncos yesterday about making a deal for receiver Terrell Owens.

"I wouldn't go there," Dawkins said after the NFC squad's Pro Bowl practice.

The Eagles have given Owens permission to seek a trade, and Denver is one of several teams reported to be interested. But Dawkins said the Broncos and any other team interested in Owens should be careful.

"Just be prepared for whatever," Dawkins said to a Denver reporter. "He's a great guy as far as a person goes, but he says what's on his mind, so you've got to be prepared for whatever."

Owens and the Eagles have been at odds since the receiver asked for a new contract before last season. The situation grew heated as Owens took verbal shots at quarterback Donovan McNabb and others and was banished by the Eagles.

Dawkins was asked if one player could "poison" a locker room.

"Yeah, you saw what happened this year," he said. "It can happen. It starts to filter through. Different opinions are given out, and things happen that shouldn't happen."

Dawkins said those problems would follow Owens to a new team.

"Any time you have something that can affect your team and your locker room, you might want to stay away from it," Dawkins said.

Eagles linebacker Jeremiah Trotter, also a member of the NFC Pro Bowl team, refused to discuss the Owens situation.

"We're focused on 2006," Trotter said. "We need to get everybody healthy, and once we do that, we'll be fine."

As the Owens saga played out, the Eagles struggled to a 6-10 record and had their streak of four straight appearances in the NFC championship game come to an end. Dawkins said the Eagles could bounce back.

"First of all, we need to just wash our hands of the situation," Dawkins said. "Hopefully, Donovan got what he wanted to get off his chest off his chest, and we'll get to minicamp and start playing ball again."

Dawkins said he supported McNabb's criticism of Owens last week.

"He had to get something off his chest," Dawkins said. "It was something that festered for a long time, and he felt this was the time he wanted to do it, and he did it. It's over and done with, and we've got to go on from there."

Dawkins said the Eagles' locker room could be made harmonious next season.

"That's something that we as players will do," he said. "We'll get together... and we'll keep playing. The thing about playing football is, when you start winning, all that other stuff goes in the back window.

"If we were winning last year, none of that stuff would have happened and none of those comments would have been made."

You da*m right!

... so, instead of saying this during the season and supporting him then he comes out with this message now? Not trying to burst your bubble, but maybe just maybe players like Dawkins should have said something to Owens while he was still playing? Novel concept. Or they could wait till their whole team is in disarray and then come out with some comments. Aren't veteran leaders and players the ones who are supposed to put people in their place? But, I digress.

Yeah, Dawkins had to use a lot of energy to pick his ass up off the ground after Sellars trucked his ass and then literally stepped all over him for good measure. :laugh:

Well here's one idea for you then.....

Since you refuse to be cordial, then why not stay out of threads started, replied to by and heavily discussed by.....drum roll.......EAGLES FANS! :doh:

That way, you can kill two "birds" with one stone. You keep yourself away from us, and we don't have to hear from you? :D

Sounds good to me...how about you? :silly:

Cool.....good.....bye bye! :applause:

Dawkins wanted TO to stay. He and Trotter were on the keep TO train.

We know what his position was because he said it.

Now that TO is gone, Dawkins is supporting who's left.

It's still lousy for the Eagles that during this supposed crisis, McNabb wasn't a great leader.

I have respect for Dawkins but words are words.

Mcnabb has his own problems and the defense is atrocious. That's reality.

I hate pretty much everything Eagles, except Dawkins. I've always liked that guy. He is the true leader of that team, not McNugget.

Oh, and 5, what happened to that song you were supposed to make about the 'Skins?

It's written and recorded, but I was going to post the link if they made the NFC CHampionship game....but don't worry Kdawg, my team and I are still doing the OffSeaSon mixtape repping all 32 teams, we pushed it back till around the draft hoping for finacial backing from some sponsers. You'd be shocked at what that thread did for orders and interest.
