Terrell Owens misses out on Pro Football Hall of Fame

Feb 6, 2016 at 5:12 PM--


According to himself, controversial former San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Terrell Owens was not voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday.


Owens, who was drafted by San Francisco in the third round of the 1996 NFL Draft, was with the 49ers from 1996 until 2003. He also spent time with the Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys, Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals.

The six-time Pro Bowler and five-time first team All-Star has 1,078 career receptions for 15,934 yards and 153 touchdowns. He ranks sixth all-time in receptions, and is second only to Jerry Rice in all-time receiving yards. He also ranks third in all-time receiving touchdowns.

In 2000, he broke to record for catches in a game. That record would later be broken in 2009 by Brandon Marshall.

"Zero" chance Christian McCaffrey misses 49ers-Eagles, says the RB

According to head coach Kyle Shanahan, San Francisco 49ers running back Christian McCaffrey won't practice on Thursday, which means he'll have missed two consecutive practices due to a calf contusion. It's something everyone around the NFL media world is keeping an eye on this week as the team prepares for its NFC Championship Game clash against the Philadelphia Eagles. Don't expect a little injury to keep McCaffrey out on Sunday, though. Reporters asked the running back if there was any chance in his mind that he wouldn't play against the Eagles. "Zero," McCaffrey quickly and confidently responded. The 49ers traded for McCaffrey on October 20, 2022. He has started each of the team's past 12 games, including these last two playoff matchups.

The 49ers' 2022 Season Has Officially Been Ruled 'Out' - SF 7, Philadelphia 31

It wasn't supposed to end like this. But in the end, what did you expect? This is who the 49ers are. Not a bad team, no. God, no. If that's what you think after watching an NFFCG collapse, I humbly request you consider this game tomorrow. A week from now. With a bit of distance, tracing the arc of the whole season. That still doesn't change the fact that this game was ugly. It was horrific. No, it was worse - a farce. This was Kyle Shanahan trying to bluff an invading army with a tea party out in the open. There's no blame to be laid at his feet here. Maybe against another army, a team less consistently aggressive and outside of its home turf. It's just not a strategy that works against Nick Sirianni's Eagles. Playoff football is a game of



"Tough way to go out": 49ers reflect on brutal end to magical season

All things being equal, the San Francisco 49ers probably had a decent chance to compete against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, possibly earning a return trip to the Super Bowl. All things didn't end up being equal, though. The Niners entered the NFC Championship Game with Brock Purdy at quarterback. Purdy entered the regular season as QB3. However, an ankle injury to Trey Lance in Week 2, and then a foot injury to Jimmy Garoppolo 11 weeks later, left the 49ers turning to Purdy, a relatively unknown rookie to casual NFL fans, to finish out the season. It turns out Purdy might have been exactly what the 49ers needed. First, he won that December 4 contest against the Miami Dolphins, replacing Garoppolo. Then he proceeded to win the seven starts that followed,

Do you smell that? It's playoff football. It's a time to celebrate. For a few more precious hours, every team in the tournament still has life, still has reason to hope. There are no more guaranteed games, but there's football to be played, and right now is the time to exult in it. No matter who you root for, you can imagine your team finding a way to win, a way to keep playing football, and filling your February with excitement and joy. Right now, there's nothing standing between your team and glory except the vagaries of chance and a well-fought effort this weekend, and hopefully the next. And for those of you who aren't rooting for a team that's made it this far, never fear. 7 of the 14 playoff entrants this year didn't make it into the dance last year. The
