Former Eagles QB Donovan McNabb is no stranger to throwing shade at his former team, and he did it again last week on SportsRadio 94WIP.
When appearing on Monday’s Jon Marks and Ike Reese Show, McNabb was asked by his former teammate Ike Reese, if the current Eagles squad is comparable to the 2004 team that went on to the Super Bowl.
McNabb’s response: “It’s hard for us, being a part of that year and how special that season — and we felt like we needed one more piece to get over the hump and we felt like we got that,” McNabb said. “I can’t say that about this team because from what we’ve seen over the past three years or so — I’ll go even four — I think they were a little bit more than one piece away.
“I personally think that this team, just from what we’re seeing right now, they’re about a year or two away. And I say that because I think they have to continue to play together. The core of players on this particular team are kind of toward the end, the Fletcher Cox’s the [Jason] Kelce’s. We were young, we had already been to NFC Championships and we were just one piece away from being to three NFC Championships. This team here is just trying to find a way to get a playoff win.
“I like what they’re doing, they’re going to continue to grow. Pieces that no one expected to step up are really stepping up. So, I’m excited of the run. I’m just going to enjoy the moment and watch this growth.”
Terrell Owens, Hall of Fame WR and former teammate of McNabb, spoke on the matter:
Tried to tell y’all that years ago but because everyone thought I was the bad guy and the media didn’t help the situation putting their spin on the untrue negative perception. I’ve never seen a more jealous person!

McNabb and Owens have a tumultuous relationship. The two have been at war, since the 2005 off-season.
The Eagles remain the only undefeated team in the NFL behind the emergence of QB Jalen Hurts. They’ll look to move to 5-0 this Sunday as they travel to Arizona to the Cardinals.
