Former NFL WR Terrell Owens is again a finalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame class of 2018 will be announced on February 3.
Ex-NFL QB Jeff Garcia, who played and clashed with Owens in San Francisco, believes that Owens belongs in Canton:
“He should absolutely make the Hall of Fame. It is just a matter of time,” Garcia told TMZ Sports. “Whether it happens this year or next it is just a matter of time-based upon statistics; what the guy has accomplished throughout his career. How much of a difference maker he was on the field, a competitor. All the things that you want out of a football player he brought to the field on a daily basis. Not just on game days, on practice days, in the weight room. Whatever it took to make himself better he was always trying to do that, and always trying to be the best he could be. He made it happen on the field.”
Based on the numbers(1,078 receptions, 15,935 yards, and 153 touchdowns), Garcia believes there is no way Owens can be denied:
“With what he was able to accomplish statistically, being a top 5, top 2 guy in many categories. Stop beating around it; the guy deserves to be in the Hall of Fame. Put him in the Hall of Fame.”
We all know why Owens is not in the Hall of Fame right now. He did not always get along with his quarterbacks and has been accused by many of being a “cancer” in the locker room. But no matter how you feel about Owens, personally, he should be in the Hall of Fame!
Numbers never lie!
