Why do people consider Terrell Owens so "talented?"

The guy just got into the HOF and he's still taking shots at McNabb.  He can't own up to the fact that his own behavior distanced players/people away from him.  Whoever homers for T.O. is probably a narcissist themselves.  The guy had talent, and was a beast physically, but he wasn't a very good teammate.

Uh, idiot: Owens got into the HOF specifically because nearly all of his former teammates came out and said he was a great teammate. His presenter, Matt Maiocco, presented those quotes he got from them to the HOF committee, and that's why he got in (before that, he was never going to make it). 

The only one who wouldn't support him is somebody with 2 DUIs and an IQ of about 75, known for being one of the laziest, most out-of-shape players of all-time.

Also, a reminder: Derrick Brooks proved he was faster on the field than Terrell Owens. Derrick freak'n Brooks. 

Owens was a big, black Wes Welker (without the change-of-direction). Little talent, all heart.

Instead of admiring that and respecting that, he gets treated like some freak athlete who had everything handed to him on a silver platter, Deion Sanders/Randy Moss style.

The international Association of Athletic Federations says to add 0.24 seconds to all hand timed races. So that means Owens ran about a 4.87 in the 40 coming out of college. 

4.87.

But he was such a talented receiver relative to his peers and "wasted" it, right?

Now lemme do BillySims...

"He was gifted, he was talented, but he wasn't as gifted and as talented relative to his peers.  His records and achievements don't mean anything because if he was as gifted and as talented as his peers he would have had even more records and achievements.  He was not as fast as <insert any player that recorded a faster 40-time at a combine, regardless of whether he was an impactful player in the NFL>, and he couldn't jump as high as <insert any player that recorded a higher vertical at a combine, regardless of whether he was an impactful player in the NFL>, so nevermind that he's 5th all time in TDs (any kind, including passing, which us pretty damn impressive), and second all-time in receiving yards, imagine what he could have done if he was as talented (in meaningless tests that are not in any way correlated to success in the NFL) as his peers."

How'd I do?
