Terrell Owens liked Ryan Fitzpatrick's passes better than Steve Young's

Soon-to-be Hall-of-Fame wide receiver Terrell Owens was asked on Twitter which quarterback threw him the best ball. He picked Bills QB Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Owens played with some great quarterbacks, including Hall-of-Famer Steve Young, Donovan McNabb, Drew Bledsoe, Tony Romo, Jeff Garcia, Carson Palmer and a handful of others.

But the best ball he saw? That was the one thrown by Fitzpatrick. The duo spent one season together in Buffalo in 2009, with Fitzpatrick replacing Trent Edwards after six games.

"Best" is clearly subjective, but in this sense we can safely presume we're talking about the nicest-looking pass with the tightest spiral, delivered on time and in a good position for the receiver to gain yards after the catch (and not get hammered).

One commenter replied to the tweet that Ownes would've chosen McNabb if he didn't hold grudges, to which Owens replied, "lol."

Owens also replied to an angry 49ers fan that picking Fitzpatrick didn't mean he thought Fitzpatrick was a better quarterback than Young, just that he liked the ball better from him.

Owens added that his favorite touchdown was his 91-yarder against elite Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey, which was thrown by McNabb in 2005. His only longer touchdown was a 98-yarder from Fitzpatrick against Jacksonville in 2009.
