Limbaugh offers to mediate spat between Eagles' McNabb & Owens

Rush Limbaugh, whose comments about Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb cost him a job as an ESPN analyst, has offered to mediate a dispute between McNabb and fellow Eagle Terrell Owens.

Owens, who is sitting out a one week suspension for team-related disciplinary problems, has been unhappy about his current contract with the Eagles. He took out some of his frustrations on McNabb, referring to the all-pro quarterback as a "hypocrite," further saying that the two of them could not be successful together.

Limbaugh wants to help mediate, inviting both Eagles to appear on his show.

"I am here to offer and to assist. I can," Limbaugh said on his nationally syndicated radio show Friday, according to a transcript on his Web site. "I could bring these two guys together. I've been there, folks, and I could do this, and I'm serious in my desire to do it."

"This rift cannot be allowed to continue, ladies and gentlemen. It just can't, and I would like to offer this program as a means of getting these two Americans and star players back together," Limbaugh said. "They may not want to talk to each other face-to-face, but perhaps they would join me on this program and speak to each other telephonically via this program and settle this."

No word from either McNabb or Owens at this point, but Limbaugh says the offer remains open.

You know, I've never liked Limbaugh, but that is funny.
