Who was better?
T.O. tops Ochocinco in every statistical receiving category and played in 53 more games. Here’s how their careers match up, per Pro-Football-Reference.com:
The numbers don’t lie. Statistically, it’s Owens.
Johnson argued that T.O.’s numbers are partly due to his surroundings, though.
"Don’t let the numbers fool you," Ocho said. "It just so happened he was put in situations that were great for him. I’m the better receiver."
T.O. was blunt in response: "Turn the film on."
The debate seemed lighthearted and in good fun. A better discussion might be who was better at celebrating touchdowns.
