2018 Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee Terrell Owens displayed one of the most entertaining and humorous personalities during his playing career, which sometimes rubbed players Authentic Jordan Whitehead Jersey , coaches and analysts the wrong way.On Friday morning ( a day after the Pro Football Hall of Fame game), Fox Sports 1 analyst Skip Bayless questioned why Andy Reid, Owens' former head coach, would say nice things about T.O. now.Why would Andy Reid, of all people, say something nice about T.O. now? We debate. @undisputed. 9:30 AM ET. FS1— Skip Bayless (@RealSkipBayless) August 3, 2018Owens joined the club of athletes who didn't care for criticism from Bayless M.J. Stewart Jersey , and he shot back at the polarizing sports journalist with this tweet.Why would u tell lies ALL THESE YEARS and create the narrative that I was a bad teammate?! U & others chose to write negative stories based on a few ppl saying they didn't like me or I was a problem. All depended on who "U" spoke to https://t.co/h4tbdaO6tl— Terrell Owens (@terrellowens) August 3, 2018PERCEPTION IS NOT REALITY. https://t.co/3r1eynBoFc— Terrell Owens (@terrellowens) August 3, 2018I can't wait to hear what u have to say on this topic! https://t.co/h4tbdaO6tl— Terrell Owens (@terrellowens) August 3, 2018Reid - Owens coach for the 2004 and '05 seasons in Philadelphia, only had nice things to see about the legendary wide receiver. Reid shot down any speculation that Owens was a difficult player to manage and coach."He is one of the most coachable guys I鈥檝e ever been around," Reid said, per Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk. "You鈥檇 ask him to do something and he would do it at 100 miles per hour and live...You give him something and he would do it.Traded to the Eagles in 2004 Texans Justin Reid Jersey , Owens had one of the best seasons of his career, and turned out to be the final piece Philly needed to get over the playoff hump. He caught 77 passes for 1,200 yards and 14 touchdowns. After dropping three straight NFC Championship Games,the Eagles finally punched a Super Bowl ticket by beating the Atlanta Falcons, 27-10. Despite playing with a leg fracture that hadn't fully healed, Owens played in Super Bowl XXXIX against the New England Patriots, dominating them with nine catches for 122 yards.
