T.O. looks like he could make this Philadelphia Eagles roster now!
Ask yourself a serious question. Take your emotions out of the argument for just one second. As a Philadelphia Eagles fan, are you certain that Terrell Owens, right now, isn’t as good as Mack Hollins is? No, let’s be serious. If your life depended on it and you knew we had to run both “Throwback Mack” and Owens through some drills, who would you say would outshine the other?
Better yet, if we didn’t know who either of those guys were and you were scouting talent, which one would catch your attention? Let’s take it a step further. Are you even certain that Owens, right now, isn’t as good as Nelson Agholor or JJ Arcega-Whiteside or anyone else that Carson Wentz had to throw the ball to down the stretch?
The difference between T.O., Agholor, “JJAW” and Hollins is this. Three of those guys actually played for the Eagles last season. Arcega-Whiteside totaled ten receptions, 169 receiving yards, and one touchdown in 2019. T.O. couldn’t have done that? Come on. Stick T.O. in the lineup in goal-line situations. You don’t think he’d be more productive than “JJAW” was?
Holy forty-yard dash time Batman! If you’re a Philadelphia Eagles fan, check this out.
Naturally, these are all jokes, and we’re just kidding (sort of). Just for kicks, check this one out though. Recently, T.O. threw some cleats on and challenged Tyreek Hill to a foot race. Here’s what happened.
If you were paying attention, that’s a 46-year-old Owens running a 4.4-second forty, just a little under eight-tenths of a second slower than Hill, one of the fastest men on Planet Earth. Is anyone else thinking about Bernard Hopkins or the fact that Vince Carter played NBA ball for 22 seasons? It’s never been a question about Owens’ talent. It’s always been all about his attitude but think about it. Who’s to say, if he wasn’t a headache at times, that he couldn’t have played into his forties?
Terrell Owens spent 22 games in an Eagles jersey, including one in a Super Bowl. Okay, maybe saying he’s ready for Eagles camp is a bit of a stretch. He also had a tendency to drop a few balls that were thrown in his direction, something no “Birds fan wants to see, but let’s be honest. Apparently, everything we heard from Howie Roseman about this team getting younger was a fib. T.O. looks like he could make this Philadelphia Eagles roster now. Again, we’re joking (sort of), but this team doesn’t feel any younger than it was five months ago. How do we know T.O. can’t still play? That 40 by a man who’s 46 years young was pretty impressive.
