I think he will get in some day but dont be surprised if its a 7-10 year wait. Just look at Cris Carter.
I think Terrell davis was a better back, Martin for sure, Sanders, Emmit, Ricky Watters were the top backs in his era. All are better than him so that hurts him.
a stat compiler? Seriously? Just 4745 days at the office. Compiling stats. right.
have you ever wondered what your life would have been like if you became a hired goon right out of school? you would have had a chance to learn the ropes from other goons and rub shoulders with all kinds of seedy characters. oh the stories you would be able to tell.
