so i was just on espn nfl and i saw a poll question asking if to was a hall of famer or not, I without hesitation voted yes. I was shocked to see that only 53 percent of the votes from 70,000+ votes said yes. I think this is ridiculous. 1,078 receptions 15,000+ yds and 153 tds. At first i went back to see if it asked is he a first ballot hall of famer but it didn't. What do you guys think?
Definitely a HOFer. A lot of people though will focus too much on his off field antics but anyone that saw him play saw how dominant he was. All that 'first ballot' stuff is a bunch of BS. I mean Cris Carter isn't good enough to be in the HOF why? Because those sportswriters don't like him? People can say what they want about T.O but he belongs. His numbers and TDs are staggering.
I see Lynn Swann get bashed so much on this forum for being in the Hall of Fame, all people ever do is point to stats and then compare him to someone else, you people never, ever, ever discuss the fact that he had some of the biggest plays in some of the biggest games. If stats truly were te be all and end all then guys like Namath and Sayers do not belong in the Hall either.
Swann was called "Baryshnikov in Cleats", why? Because he always saves his best performance for the big show.
