Default Re: Ward’s spot in Canton should be a matter of when not if

Let's look at stats and impact.

8th all time in catches with 1000. 3/4 of his career was in a running offense. That is amazing.

18th all time in receiving yards with 12,000+. Pretty much averaged 1000 yards for 12 of 14 years. Very consistent.

Greatest blocking receiver of all time. League changed it's rules because of him.

Starter for 3 Super Bowl teams. Starter for 2 Super Bowl winning teams. Super Bowl MVP in SB XL.

4 time pro bowlers and 85 TDs.

One team. Image of that team and all time record holder for his position and one of the ambassadors of the league.

I always was with the belief that if you have to ask if someone is a hall of famer, they arent. But the reality is, good PR helps. Just ask Dick Lebeau.
