We may have finally figured out the real reason why voters are strangely keeping Terrell Owens out of the Pro Football Hall of Fame: They must think he’s coming back to play.
Owens, who has never lacked confidence, thinks he can still play in the NFL. In truth, he’s probably still better than some receivers in the NFL, even at age 43. Owens told Eric Dickerson on AM 570 in Los Angeles that the real joke isn’t that he’s been snubbed by the Hall of Fame. It’s that he’s not still catching passes in the league.
“Me not being on the field right now is a joke, and I don’t care what people say,” Owens said. “Even though I’m 43, trust me, I’m not your average 43-year-old.”
“I can play. There’s no question about it,” Owens said. “With the fact that people – when you get into your 30s – they feel like you’re on a decline. I surpassed that, even when I was 35, 36, 37, they said I was too old but I was still balling out with the 20-year-olds.
“I can go out right now and give you a 4.4 [40-yard dash time]. Right now. At 43. I don’t necessarily have to play every down, but I can give you something on that football field.”
What the hell are the Jets waiting for? But honestly, how many other teams could use this guy? 85%?
Plus, you are allowed to celebrate again, T.O is game for that.
Listen, the guy is in unbelievable shape, he still runs like a deer and if it wasn’t for Donovan McNabb being shit, he would have a Super Bowl ring.
T.O was an animal, an absolute beast, one of the greatest of all time and he made all the hard catches look really fucking easy.
Julian Edelman just blew his knee to shit, not that T.O is the most valid comparison, but we know Tom Brady would love the option to hit #81 coming across the middle.
Make it happen, Kraft! You gave Trump a ring, give T.O a job.
