During his time with the Philadelphia Eagles, the argument can be made that Terrell Owens had the chance to be king of the city as he seemed to be the play-making wide receiver the team had spent years searching for Donovan McNabb to throw the football to. In fact, everything seemed to be falling into place for Owens and the Eagles as he recorded 77 catches for 1,200 yards with 14 touchdowns in 14 games during his first season in 2004 before the messy divorce took place the following season.
It’s difficult not to wonder what would have happened if things worked out with Owens and the Eagles, but the wide receiver will unfortunately always be considered as the selfish player who ruined a great opportunity to Philadelphia fans. While the 40-year-old Owens has spent the last three years trying to convince teams to give him another chance in the NFL, it appears the wideout recently spent part of his free time making a commercial for Carl’s Jr. and their new Philly Cheesesteak Burger in which he actually pokes fun about how much the City of Brotherly Love hates him.
As you can see in the commercial above, Owens discusses how he had a love/hate relationship with Philly because he loved the food, but the fans hated him. Sorry Mr. Owens, but I have to side with Eagles fans on this one–mainly because you have nobody to blame but yourself for the way things played out in Philadelphia.
Glad to see you’re spending all of this free time wisely though with these types of commercials!
