Terrell Owens’ Life Never A Concern In Philadelphia
The earth shook when Terrell Owens was hospitalized in September 2006 for what police referred to as “attempting suicide by prescription pain medication.” But, while the show of support and sympathy from Jon Gruden, Chad Johnson, and others was going full steam ahead in the media’s grapevine, a malevolent voice from Owens’ old stomping grounds in Philadelphia sounded loud and clear.
No, the Eagles were never worried about the condition of Owens, even at the darkest hour.
“We always thought he was crazy, never mental,” a source with the Eagles said. “…That’s not even remotely him. This guy loves himself too much.”
Leave it to the City of Brotherly Love to coin their best wishes in such loving terms.
