The Eagles had reached the NFC championship three consecutive times and fell every single time, with the last two times being against far inferior opponents on paper.
Fans criticized the organization every single season and questioned whether it truly was serious about delivering a championship to Philadelphia. Similarly, fans also began to question whether Donovan McNabb was an elite quarterback.
By signing Terrell Owens, the Eagles organization proved to fans that it was willing to make big offseason acquisitions if it truly believed it would help the team achieve its title goals.
Eagles fans were also then treated to one of the greatest seasons in Eagles' quarterback history, as Donovan McNabb, having finally been given a playmaker on offense, proved that he was an excellent passer.
He threw for 33 touchdowns and completed 64 percent of his passes to only eight interceptions.
But while Owens brought good times to Philadelphia, many will remember this era more for the drama he would create in the following season. The feud between him and McNabb would become one of the most well-known feuds in professional football history and represented a championship opportunity completely squandered.
