When the world realized Terrell Owens wasn’t going to be a part of the next Pro Football Hall of Fame enshrinement, hot takes were delivered at a rapid pace.
Jason Taylor, who will be heading to Canton soon was disappointed T.O. wouldn’t be joining him.
“I don’t get it,” Taylor said. “His numbers, football wise? Come on. He stacks up for sure. He can wreck your team on Sunday. His all-time numbers stand and show he’s one of the top receivers and I think a Pro Football Hall of Famer. People have different agendas, people have different opinions. The people who have the votes are the ones who matter, and for whatever reason, they keep — I don’t want to say picking on T.O., but they keep beating him up a little bit for some of the off-the-field stuff, the distractions, he’s left teams and all this stuff.”
Like Taylor said, when you just look at Owens’ numbers, there’s no way he shouldn’t be in the Hall of Fame, but when you add in the human element, voters will hold his off-the-field antics against him, which is unfortunate.
