Default HOF Nominees - WR's

Includes Wide Receivers
Tim Brown (also KR), Cris Carter, Gary Clark, Mark Clayton, Henry Ellard (also PR), KEYSHAWN JOHNSON, Andre Reed, Sterling Sharpe, Jimmy Smith, ROD SMITH

probably a long shot with Carter and Reed and Brown there already... Nice to see Hot Rod get a mention

I hope Rod makes it. Maybe not this time around, but hopefully soon.
Undrafted FA and had a helluva career in Denver.
Good for Rod Smith to draw some consideration.
Heck, now that I stop to think about, why not this time around?

my 2nd all time favorite Bronco.....no way on the HOF (of course he deserves it, but I don't see him getting the votes), but he will be added to the ROF this year.

Tim Brown is automatic. still wish we could have pulled off bringing him to Denver. Carter has been due for a couple years now, Reed is a guy i think will wait a bit, Sharpe is hard to say, full career he would have been 1st ballot, but i bet he waits awhile, Jimmy Smith is going to wait and sadly Rod is going to get overlooked for several years. if the greatest TE at the time of his retirement had to wait 3 years, the best UDFA ever is going to wait at least as long and probably will be a guy like FLoyd Little getting in as the senior candidate thing.

yes, that one stood out.

I do not see Rod getting in, maybe as an old timer.

If Sterling Sharpe gets in then it totally opens the door for Terrell Davis. You can't have two sets of standards for entrance into the HOF. You can't say "this guy has great numbers but didn't play long enough" and then ignore this same rule for Sharpe.

Sharpe doesn't have the post season numbers either. In fact, the only reason Sharpe is bing mentioned is because Shannon brought it up during his induction.

Perhaps Keyshawn was named because Sterling was named?

my guess is he was included because he has incriminating photos of someone on the election committee

I still wear a Rod Smith Jersey every away game (my favorite White/Road jersey).

But here are some numbers, really the only thing Rod has going for him is the fact that he was undrafted and went on to have one heck of a career:


Rod Smith
REC
849
YDS
11,389
AVG
13.4
TDS
68


Jimmy Smith
REC
862
YDS
12,287
AVG
14.3
TDS
67 (Rod Smith has one more than Jimmy Smith)

Thats what I thought too.

Other "huh?" selections:

Drew Bledsoe, Tiki Barber, Bill Cohwer.

Not a single one of those clowns deserves to get in before Terrell Davis. Short career or not, Davis was in the elite of the elite. None of those forementioned players ever came close to sniffing elite.

I think he should get it for developing Brandon Marshall...he was probably thinking...damnit, this kid needs his azz kicked but I won't let that get in the way of my sponsorship ego.

Very good point on the rings! In my book, Rod Smith deserves the nod right behind Tim Brown and Chris Carter...

no i wasnt, i used to play on dreamcast when it was over dialup ( i remember trying to adjust netscape settings to allow me to connect for free) and he would run a go route for a touchdown damn near every single time.

i was kidding about him deserving of HOF, but if there was an NFL2k1 HOF he would be first in line...

I dont see how Carter wasn't a first ballot hall of famer. 2nd in like every category when he retired?

Tim Brown for sure.

Rod Smith isnt getting into the Hall of Fame. Thjose numbers, with 2 rings, on teh Steelers? First ballot lock. But he played for the Broncos and they wont put him in the HoF.

He was never the best receiver in his era either. That is going to count against him.
