Antonio Gates — a surefire future Hall of Famer — says it’s “crazy” that Terrell Owens isn’t in Canton … claiming T.O.’s the 2nd best WR of All Time … behind Jerry Rice.

Gates is pretty passionate about the topic — and says T.O.’s numbers speak for themselves — but he should probably tone down the antics if he wants a bust in the Hall.

We also asked about that gold jacket Terrell made for himself … even Gates says that was a bad idea!
