NFL players weigh in on the most unfairly hated quarterbacks in the league, with Hall of Fame receiver Terrell Owens sharing his opinions on the topic. Owens stresses the importance of physical conditioning, stating that he would be a valuable player if he were on a team, even if he could not handle 70 snaps. He also criticizes the NFL for what he believes was blackballing him after his last NFL catch in 2010 and draws a comparison to Colin Kaepernick, who protested during the national anthem in 2017.
Owens has been vocal about his induction into the NFL Hall of Fame, not being voted in until 2018 despite his impressive career stats. He compared his experiences and exclusion from the Hall of Fame to what he perceived as lesser players being inducted. In 2022, Owens played for Fan Controlled Football, scoring two touchdowns and continuing to prove his viability as a player. Unfortunately, Fan Controlled Football canceled its season in 2023, ending Owens’ plans to continue playing.
