Randy Moss Thanks Bill Belichick, Numerous Patriots In Hall Of Fame Speech

Randy Moss Thanks Bill Belichick, Numerous Patriots In Hall Of Fame Speech

"There's been a lot of speculation and false reports as to why I chose not to be there [Canton]", Owens said, according to ESPN.

Although Owens probably would have heard some boos if he had given his speech in Canton, the people of Chattanooga proved to be the ideal audience for Owens, who went to college at the University of Tennessee Chattanooga from 1992 to 1995. Once they got into the locker room, we called them up and we had him come out of the door and just kind of show up.

Owens entered the Pro Football Hall of Fame in a celebration uniquely his own Saturday afternoon at his alma mater before approximately 3,000 fans who frequently cheered, chanted "T.O." and gave him the occasional standing ovation.

Moss, who received his gold jacket along with Ray Lewis, Brian Dawkins, Brian Urlacher, Jerry Kramer, Robert Brazile and Bobby Beathard during the ceremony, was clearly touched by their appearance, particularly in-season.

"These writers disregarded the system, the criteria and bylaws in which guys are inducted, and ultimately the true meaning of the Hall of Fame and what it represents".

Asked about playing in the Ryder Cup the following week, Woods said he'd have no problem playing two matches in a day if asked. Both McIlroy and Woods can be lethal at this course. "I've had an opportunity to win a couple times this year".

Owens became emotional when talking about his mother, Marilyn Owens Heard, and late grandmother, Alice Black. "Whether it's three years or 45 years, you should get what you rightfully earned". Many of you may be wondering why we are here instead of Canton. His friend, whom he referred to as Dave Brown and who also is friends with Lewis, brought it from Canton. "But we made it work". Across 16 seasons, Owens played for the San Francisco 49ers, Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys, Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals.

Moss, who ranks second all-time with 156 career receiving touchdowns and is fourth in league history with 15,292 receiving yards, spoke about his faith, family and his playing days during his speech.

"When you have a veteran saavy guy that has done it, been there and utilizing my strengths that's when I started to play well", Owens said. I admired you from afar.

"I loved my time in Buffalo".
