Marvin Harrison and Terrell Owens, two of the greatest receivers of all-time who also have Philly connections, were both eligible for the Hall of Fame in 2016. And after waiting two years, Harrison will be enshrined in Canton while Owens didn’t get elected his first time on the ballot.
After T.O. did just a little complaining about the process, the former Roman Catholic star isn’t impressed with the guy who caught 14 touchdowns for the Eagles in 2014. From Talk of Fame Radio:

“So he can get his ass in whenever he gets in … if he gets in. If he doesn’t get in too bad. The hell with him.’’
