"I felt like it was clean, the organization felt like it was a clean skit, and I think it just really got taken out of context with a lot of people, and I apologize for that," Owens said. "Personally, I didn't think it would have offended anyone, and if it did, I apologize", wrote Chicago Sun Times.
According to the Detroit Free Press, the Eagles even explained the logistics of how the skit was created, with Owens spending 2 1/2 hours Friday night learning his lines and ABC flying Sheridan to Philadelphia for the shoot.
Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb said he's married, and his wife wouldn't let him be involved in anything so racy.
