Despite big media outlet’s such as ESPN constantly talking down about Terrell Owens, calling him things like Team Obliviator, a cancer, and even some have went as far to call him the worst team-mate in the NFL history.

Obviously he had some chemistry issues with Donovan McNabb and Jeff Garcia which is an entire article in it’s own.
