A not-so-great former athlete with an outlandish sense of self who can’t seem to stay out of trouble, on social media and otherwise. Where have I heard this before? Like, really recently?

Freddie Mitchell — best known for his great hands, but most recently known for a tax fraud scheme and having seven pounds of marijuana delivered to both a restaurant he co-owns and his grandmother’s house — decided to go off on Rodney Harrison on Facebook this weekend.

You may remember Eytan Shander, who used to do talk radio on WIP. He now hosts a show with Amani Toomer on NBC Sports Radio — the same station that employs one Donovan McNabb — and Harrison, the former New England Patriots safety, is a recurring guest.

Shander and Harrison were addressing last week’s Jim Irsay controversy/not-controversy about whether the Colts’ owner was potentially ungrateful for Peyton Manning’s years of service in Indianapolis, and Harrison decided to draw a comparison to the 2005 Super Bowl between the Eagles and Pats.

Harrison said Mitchell’s trash talking of the New England secondary prior to the game only helped to motivate the Pats’ defense, which came away with three interceptions of McNabb. Shander joked that Philly always “knew” Freddie Mitchell was the real “reason” the Eagles lost that game, and the whole thing is pretty harmless …

… To everyone but FredEx apparently. Because he just lost it on Saturday all over Shander’s Facebook page, blaming McNabb for having a “shitty ass arm” and going into a long consideration of Harrison’s past with HGH. Enjoy:

        You still gotta love Freddy, catches 1 pass, declares himself the champ, defrauds the IRS, and now is talking smack like a 2nd grader about our SB loss…. And as always McNabb catches all the shrapnel…

    As much as I can’t stand FredEx, that’s not the first time I’ve heard about PEDs and Rodney Harrison.

      ditto and ditto. Fredex is an absolute clown–but its nice to hear Harrison put to the test.

    Nobody got more mileage out of a 4th and 26 catch sandwiched but nothing than this guy.

    Good old Freddy had his opportunity to show how good he was when TO got hurt that year. He choked. He was a bust and nothing more. Pinkston was better.
