Soon to be Hall of Famer Terrell Owens recently made comments on how he can help the Kansas City Chiefs in 2018. Everything about this is wrong.

You may have heard that the Kansas City Chiefs have quite the offense built for 2018. You might know about the leagues leading rusher, the fastest man in football, the best tight end in the game, and the most intriguing, gun-slinging quarterback in the league.

Terrell Owens apparently hasn’t heard of these things. Owens made recent comments as to such when he appeared on The Pat McAfee Show. Throughout these paragraphs, we will break down all the reasons he is wrong, and why he is wrong. The Kansas City Chiefs do not need Owens, let alone another receiver.

When asked whether or not he still had the ability to play, this was his answer.

"Do I still have the ability to play? Absolutely. Do I have the ability to come in right now and play at the level in which I left the game? Absolutely not."

Owens goes on to say how he could work himself into shape and contribute to a team that is right on the cusp of winning a Super Bowl, or contending for a Super Bowl.

The 44-year-old who’s been out of the game for the better part of a decade is always a good interview, you must give him that. His career was filled with drama, but his talent on the field spoke for itself. Hence the fact that he is going to the Hall of Fame.

Owens was asked which teams out of a handful he would consider, and that’s when Owens spoke up about a team they failed to mention, the Kansas City Chiefs.

"Again, you think about a guy like Andy Reid over in Kansas City. You think about what they did just last year. They are in the playoffs, they are up 22-0, and then they come out and they don’t score anymore."

So Terrell Owens thinks if he was on the team, that comeback by the Titans would have never happened. I’m listening.

"They only, they lack a big-play receiver, or they lack somebody to draw attention so other guys are able to operate and really move the chains. That’s what really sifted them in progressing in the playoffs."

Let me stop you right there Mr. Owens. The Chiefs lack a big-play receiver? May I introduce you to the cheetah, Tyreek Hill. He is the fastest man in football. He has great hands and he’s only a year or two away from being the most dangerous receiver the NFL has ever seen. Speed, hands, route running, and football smarts.

The Chiefs need somebody to draw the defenses attention so other guys can contribute? Travis Kelce comes to mind when thinking about drawing the attention of defenses. Maybe Kareem Hunt could fit that bill.

In fact, I believe the Chiefs addressed any further receiver needs with the signing of Sammy Watkins. Watkins isn’t just a spot player, he’s a guy that adds another spot where defenses have to keep an eye on. He’s the reason double teams will be obsolete when playing Kansas City.

The reason the Chiefs lost that game last season can be attributed to Travis Kelce getting concussed. As soon as he went down, the team crumbled on the offensive side of the ball. Maybe it was just a coincidence those two things coincided. Sure the play of Alex Smith was shaky at times toward the end of the game. Yes, the play-calling was atrocious.

The Chiefs didn’t lose because of Terrell Owens sitting on a couch somewhere. Just like the Eagles didn’t win the Super Bowl due to the amazing catches by an elderly Owens.

Kansas City isn’t a place for drama. The Chiefs have seldom welcomed the extracurricular news. See Marcus Peters for a fine example. As distasteful as Owens may think this piece is, the man is a legend. He made himself a legend. He earned the title. He also made himself a man that couldn’t be taken seriously.
