  • In an October contest on Monday Night Football in Seattle, Owens pulled a ‘Sharpie’ marker out of his sock after catching a TD pass. He then proceeded to autograph the ball and handed it to his financial adviser sitting in an end zone luxury suite rented by Shawn Springs, the CB he had just beaten on the play.
  • After scoring a touchdown in a December contest with the Green Bay Packers, Owens celebrated with a pair of Pom-Poms borrowed from a 49ers cheerleader.

  • After hinting that he might hold out of training camp, Owens shows up with a bad attitude, refusing to acknowledge the media or speak to his teammates. After a confrontation with head coach Andy Reid, he was suspended for one week.
  • During an interview with ESPN’s Graham Bensinger on November 3, Owens took shots at the Eagles franchise for not publicly recognizing his 100th touchdown catch. During the interview, he stated the Eagles showed a “lack of class.” He also suggested the Eagles would be better off with Packers QB Brett Favre instead of Donovan McNabb.
  • On November 4, Owens issued a half-hearted apology through the media but failed to deliver comments regarding Donovan McNabb, which head coach Andy Reid insisted he includes.
  • Owens was suspended November 5 by the Eagles for the club’s contest against the Washington Redskins on November 6.
