Plus the end of the career he kind of hung on and wasnt much of a factor.

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.
