There’s never been a better all-around single-season effort by an Eagles wide receiver than the one we witnessed from Terrell Owens in 2004.

In his first season with the Eagles, Terrell Owens notched 1,200 yards receiving and 14 touchdowns, and guess what? He left Philly’s 14th game with an injury.

Terrell Owens: 2004

After a messy breakup with the San Francisco 49ers and an even messier stint with the Baltimore Ravens, Terrell Owens went toe to toe with everyone separating him from his desired destination and worked his way into a trade that allowed him to sign with the Eagles in March of 2004.

He was the receiving threat that the Birds needed to take the next step toward a Super Bowl run, and Owens delivered big time for his new team.

Terrell racked up 77 receptions for 1,200 receiving yards with 14 touchdowns in 14 games during the 2004 season.

Owens had seven games that season where he passed the 100-yard mark, including a 134-yard game where he scored three touchdowns in a Week 9 win over the Dallas Cowboys.

The five-time all-pro wide receiver would miss the last two games of the 2004 regular season when Cowboys safety Roy Williams injured his ankle and fibula with a horse collar tackle during Philly’s Week 14 victory over Dallas.

His crowning moment that season came during Super Bowl 39 as he did all he could, catching nine receptions for 122 yards in what was unfortunately a loss to the New England Patriots. Gosh, what could have been, right?
