Taylor Swift simply has more star power than Beyoncé ... at least according to one pro football legend.
Shannon Sharpe delivered the (surely to be controversial) take on the two pop stars after a recent report claimed T.S. generated over $331 million for the Chiefs/NFL and the Chiefs -- something Unc believes Queen B couldn't have matched.
The convo went down on Sharpe's and Ochocinco's Nightcap podcast ... when Shannon asked Chad who else could've generated hundreds of millions of dollars just by showing up to a few games.
Ocho's response was Beyoncé ... but Sharpe didn't agree, expressing his support for Bey, while saying he didn't think her impact would be the same.
"Not like this," Sharpe said. "I love Beyoncé!. Beyoncé ain't moving the needle like this chick, Ocho! No!"
At the end of the day, gets used to seeing Swift ... the Chiefs are in the Super Bowl, and while we're told Taylor won't be a part of the halftime show, you can bet you'll see plenty of her on your television on Super Sunday!
