(4) Terrell Owens vs. Donovan McNabb
Beef Breakdown: Terrell Owens joined the Philadelphia Eagles in 2004. Terrell Owens left the Philadelphia Eagles in 2005. His beef with Donovan McNabb caused a rift in a team coming off of four straight NFC Championships, and one Super Bowl appearance. It was about money. It was about power. It was all beef.
Best Known For: While not necessarily having to do with McNabb (more so his relationship with Reid so it wasn’t a focus of the episode), when Owens gave reporters a front row seat to his shirtless workout, his frustration was put on the map.
Terrell Owens’ beef with Donovan McNabb was must-see TV
(5) Jim Harbaugh vs. Pete Carroll
Beef Breakdown: Jim Harbaugh and Pete Caroll have squared off when one was a player and the other a coach, when both were Pac-10 coaches, and when both were taking NFC West teams to the Super Bowl. This is the sports beef version of Batman and the Joker. Or Batman and Batman. Or Joker and Joker? You get the idea.
Best Known For: Their inability to just shake hands. Like, I get it, you don’t get along, but just get over yourselves and caress palms like gentlemen do!
The Jim Harbaugh-Pete Carroll beef spans the Pac-10, NFC West, and parking lots
Matchup Prediction: This is a tough one, but I suppose that fits all the 4-5 matchups. They both have some legendary moments, they’ve both led to iconic football being played, but only one has Terrell Owens, so I’m giving his beef with McNabb the slightest of edge.
