It's the middle of the week and Prisco's other option was to write a column bashing Detroit.

Jerome's career yardage gets him in on the first ballot and Prisco knows it better than we do.

It's the baseball equivalent of getting 3000 hits; nobody will care what your on base % was.

Hey, Bouchette shared my sentiments about the best "Big back". He's right. It begins and ends right there. There are 270lb QB's playing the game now, but a 230lb RB is still considered a big back, even almost 40 years after the 1st one appeared on the scene. And most of these 230lb RB's fizzle and fade in a year or two.

Bettis is still productive in his 13th year, always pushing the pile forward. Bettis is almost a player/coach, something that pretty much died decades ago. Is he a first ballot HOF'er? I doubt it, but, then again, Dermonti Dawson is probably tied with Webster as the best Center to EVER play the game of football, and he didn't even make the final cut. Voters love the skill position.

a great effort to "sell papers" so to speak

It's truly a shame that these people are allowed to be in high profile positions.

It's this kind of idiocy really gets under my skin.
