Brian Dawkins isn’t the only former Philadelphia Eagles player to make the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2018. Terrell Owens also finally made the cut as well.

Owens only played with the Eagles for two seasons but one of those was the most memorable in franchise history. The 2004 Eagles were the last team to make it to the Super Bowl prior to this year.

Owens was fantastic that year; he had 77 receptions for 1,200 yards and 14 touchdowns in 14 games played. Then he managed to play in the Super Bowl just seven weeks after breaking his leg and tearing a ligament in his ankle. He put up nine receptions for 122 yards in the big game, too.

Unfortunately, Owens’ time in Philadelphia was cut short due to off field drama stemming from contract issues and his relationship with quarterback Donovan McNabb. T.O. was deactivated for most of the 2005 season before being released in March 2006.

Personally, I’ll always remember T.O. fondly because he was such a joy to watch in 2004. He’s what really got me hardcore into the Eagles. I remember it was such an exciting time when Philly acquired him.

Whether you like Owens or not, though, you have to admit he was one of the best wide receivers to ever play the game. His spot in Canton, Ohio is well deserved.

With Dawk and T.O. getting in to the Hall, is there any question the Eagles are beating the Patriots in the Super Bowl tomorrow?
