This isn't the first time Donovan McNabb has been to the Super Bowl. But it will be the first time the Philadelphia Eagle quarterback will play. In the past, he's had to settle for the soup bowl. McNabb and his mother, Wilma, have come to the Super Bowl host city in the past to plug those soups they push on television (Yes, that really is his mother in the commercials). But it's no laughing matter to McNabb.

Terrell Owens is hearing from folks around Philadelphia that he should play in the Super Bowl with his severely sprained right ankle and broken right leg. Fans, hometown media, bookies, the team trainer who thinks he knows more than Owens' surgeon and countless others are putting pressure on Owens, pressure that's currently outweighing the pain. But T.O. should take a timeout and listen to the ones who really care about him.

It was enough to make a grown man cry. And that's exactly what the Philadelphia Eagles' Jeremiah Trotter was doing. It was the opening kickoff of the first exhibition game against the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium last summer and there was Trotter, lining up on the special-teams unit along with the rookies and the free agents, all wannabes fighting for a roster spot. No blow he would receive as he ran down the field could match this blow to his ego.

No matter what point spread Las Vegas assigns when New England plays Philadelphia in Super Bowl XXXIX, there's one lopsided tally that won't change. Namely, 38-4. Patriot starters have played in a combined 38 Super Bowls; Eagle starters have played in four -- tackle Jon Runyan and defensive end Jevon Kearse with Tennessee, Mike Bartrum with Green Bay and Dhani Jones with the New York Giants. The reason for the disparity is obvious.

Terrell Owens' doctor said Tuesday he would not give the Philadelphia Eagle receiver clearance to play in the Super Bowl. Mark Myerson said he was pleased with Owens' recuperation but added the surgery required a recovery period of eight to 10 weeks. Myerson said in a statement that any attempt to accelerate the rehabilitation process posed the same risk for injury. Owens had said he would play against New England on Feb. 6 at Jacksonville, Fla. He now says that he plans to be in uniform.

Jeff Thomason, project manager for a New Jersey construction firm, is using his remaining vacation days for this year to go to the Super Bowl. It's a good deal. He gets an expenses-paid trip to Jacksonville, Fla., a great seat in Alltel Stadium and a chance to win big money. Thomason, though, is not just going to the Super Bowl. He's going to play in it.

Sitting in the corner of the end zone, soaked in a wave of crowd emotion after having finished off the Atlanta Falcons with his second touchdown catch in Sunday's NFC championship game, Philadelphia Eagle tight end Chad Lewis seemed in no hurry to get up. As it turns out, Lewis wasn't certain he could get up. And whether or not he did, he knew that, like the Falcons, his season was probably over, one game short of the Super Bowl.

Asked on national television whether he thought star receiver Terrell Owens would play in Super Bowl XXXIX, Andy Reid gave the answer the Philadelphia Eagles had been hoping to hear. "I have a feeling he will," the Eagle coach said with a big smile. That was news to the team's medical staff, which has not been overly optimistic about the possibility of Owens' getting back on the field for the Feb. 6 game against the New England Patriots in Jacksonville, Fla.

Donovan McNabb had been through it all before. In his dreams. He had imagined the roar of the crowd, the light touch of confetti falling on his broad shoulders, the feel of the championship trophy in his hands and the warm embrace of his joyous teammates. But after trips to the NFC championship game the previous three years, all ending in losses, after watching the St. Louis Rams, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Carolina Panthers celebrate, dreams were all the Philadelphia Eagle quarterback had.
