I knew this was going to be the post. Redskins fans and Monk. SMDH.

I didn't know Holt was off the ballot, I just figured he wasn't eligible yet. Definitely another guy who was great.

There are a plethora of them (Bruce was really fucking good and underrated as hell and will likely never get in), they get tied in to the QBs they played with sometimes, and as Flush said, lot of divas amongst them that plays poorly with the old school football types.


I guess I knew all that so maybe my question was kind of rhetorical. But I don't think those reasons are all that rational, personally. I'm pretty sure it basically just boils down to "waaah, these guys are divas and they offend my MAWG sensibilities." Kinda like the holier than though baseball writers, who I can't stand. Maybe this is all kind of :19: since I'm a MAWG myself, but w.e.

And I know receiving numbers have been crazily inflated in recent years, so it makes it harder to evaluate the receivers across eras. But Moss and TO are just in a different class, IMHO.

WRs to get in on their first ballots: Jerry Rice, Steve Largent, Paul Warfield, Lance Alworth, and Raymond Berry. Other than Rice, could any of those guys even carry TO's jock?

Yeah, I think Holt was just a semifinalist again this year. His stats-to-begin-a-career splits are consistently in the top 5 all time but he came along when the NFL decided the Ty Laws of the world were getting away with murder in coverage.

Oh I'm sorry, 100 catch season in 1984, first evah! 1984, not 2014. Had Joe Theismann, Jay Schroeder, Doug Williams, and Mark Rypien for QBs, not exactly a HOF list there yet still set the career receiving record. Man has ringzzzzzzz, too. But whatever, I hope Lynch gets in and Dawkins never sniffs that giant orange juicer in Canton and you punch someone and spend some time in jail so you can THINK ABOUT HOW WRONG AND STUPID YOU ARE

Art Monk is a pretty terrible name though. Doesn't pass the sniff test for an all time great.

When you're right, you're right. Now if he had a hall of fame name like Drew Pearson, he's probably a first ballot guy.

If Lynch gets in before Dawkins I'll punch someone.

Lynch probably gets in first cause of RINGZ if anything.

Agree with Dong though, Dawkins > Lynch. Not a punchable offense to me though.

Now, if Alan Fanaea gets in before Steve Hutchinson THEN PEOPLE ARE GETTING BOMBARDED WITH ANGRY AND VAGUELY THREATENING LETTERS! Probably not actually.

I'm not wading into guard anger. I'm saving that for 15 years from now when Marshal Yanda comes up.

The things MAWG sportswriters give passes to and hold against people never cease to amaze me.

Moss pretended to moon a fan base known for mooning! Noted cut up Tony Dungy laughed! He's a problem! But Ray does a funny dance or something let him in what white suit are you referring to?

Dunno about that. There's more good white LBs than good white WRs I guess. Not even sure about that actually.
