Bingo. And consistant doesn't get you in the HOF. Great gets you in the HOF, and Reed wasn't great. Neither was Monk. Neither was Trippett. Neither were a lot of the names being thrown around.

I love the backing of Randy Gradishar here. Dude definitely deserves to go in the Hall.
Carter is a lock IMO.
A lot of good, deserving names on the ballot IMO. I'd vote as follows:
Randy Gradishar
Cris Carter
Derrick Thomas
Gary Zimmerman - was a member of 80's all decade and 90's all decade teams, was a dominating tackle and no one talks about him
Randall McDaniel

Actually he had 3 All Pro years (84, 85, and 86) to go with his 3 Super Bowl Rings.

Regular Season: 224gms 940rec 12721yds (13.5ypc) 68tds
Postseason: 15gms 69rec 1062yds (15.4ypc) 7tds

At the time of retirement Monk was #1 in all time receptions and is currently ranked #6 all time. It is more significant to me that he was #1 when he retired because I believe that the Hall of Fame should be voted on based upon performance of a player during his era of playing. At retirement he had 121 more catches than anyone preceding him. Until Monk, every WR who had retired as the all-time leading receiver was voted into Canton.

Monk’s personal playoff stats are the best of the bunch. His yards per game, catches per game, and yards per catch numbers beat out those of Chris Carter, Tim Brown, and Andre Reed. Carter and Reed have very small advantages in TDs per game, while Monk beats out Brown even in this category. Playoff TD numbers are close, even though all of these other guys played in passing-first offenses, while Monk’s Redskins teams were power running teams at heart. If you compare each of these guys’ numbers in NFC/AFC Championship games, Monk sweeps ALL categories, outgaining the next best candidate by nearly 40 YARDS a game.

Chris Carter was recently quoted saying, "“I’m a huge Washington Redskins fan and I cannot understand why Art Monk has not been selected for the Hall of Fame. Art was the all-time leading receiver (940 receptions) at one time in his career and won a couple of Super Bowls."

I could go on and on but I won't unless I need to.

Russ Grimm
Art Monk
Andre Reed
Paul Tagliabue

These are my finalists. I think it will be:

Carter and Green are def. in.


The other two, ugh. I wouldn't be surprised if Tagliabue and either Thomas or Reed made it as well.

I don't put as much emphasis on playoff stats as you do. I dunno about some of the other guys but he doesn't beat Tim Brown in many if any of those stats for his career. He also only made 3 (thought it was 2, I was wrong) All Pro teams in a time when they had about a million WRs make it each year.

Art Monk was never an elite receiver. Most of the people that think he should be in never even saw him play, they're just Redskins fans or people that like stats.

Monk (80-95) 3 Super Bowl Rings
224gms 940rec 12721yds (13.5ypc) 68tds

Andre Reed (85-00) ZERO Super Bowl Rings
234gms 951rec 13198yds (13.9ypc) 87tds

Chris Carter (87-02) ZERO Super Bowl Rings
234gms 1101rec 13899yds (12.6ypc) 130 tds

Tim Brown (88-04 Eligible in 2010) ZERO Super Bowl Rings
255gms 1094rec 14934yrds (13.7ypc) 80 tds

In the 80s Monk was without a doubt the best all around WR in the era. He was a big play threat, then a possession receiver, and one of the best blockers youll see at the position. Reed, Carter, and Brown all had incredible careers through the 90s in a much more pass oriented system while Monk played in a run first style offense under Gibbs therefore accounting for his lower TD total

Jerry Rice:

“There’s no doubt [Monk] was one of the best receivers to ever play the game and it’s an honor to break his record,” Rice said. “Art Monk, he was an ideal receiver. The thing I liked about him was that he would show up for every game and go out there and play.”


Bill Polian, President Indianapolis Colts

"I believe he's a Hall of Famer. I was a pro scout when he was playing, so it was my job to know who those guys were. I would put Art in that category, but apparently there are a lot of Hall of Fame voters who don't feel Art Monk was in that category. It's hard for me to believe they ever saw him play."


Bill Parcells (in 1995),

"Monk is headed to Canton downhill on roller skates"


Ronnie Lott, HOF inductee

"Art Monk was an example for Jerry Rice. That's what Jerry always told me.

There's nothing negative to say. He has the numbers, the catches, the championships.

You have a Hall of Fame for all it represents. I know he represents all that it's about. Integrity, love and passion for the game, community, what he gave back. Look how he conducted himself. Nobody I know deserves it more."


If he doesn’t get in it doesn’t make sense.”


Michael Irvin:

In the 80s Monk was without a doubt the best all around WR in the era. He was a big play threat, then a possession receiver, and one of the best blockers youll see at the position. Reed, Carter, and Brown all had incredible careers through the 90s in a much more pass oriented system while Monk played in a run first style offense under Gibbs therefore accounting for his lower TD total

Jerry Rice:

“There’s no doubt [Monk] was one of the best receivers to ever play the game and it’s an honor to break his record,” Rice said. “Art Monk, he was an ideal receiver. The thing I liked about him was that he would show up for every game and go out there and play.”


Bill Polian, President Indianapolis Colts

"I believe he's a Hall of Famer. I was a pro scout when he was playing, so it was my job to know who those guys were. I would put Art in that category, but apparently there are a lot of Hall of Fame voters who don't feel Art Monk was in that category. It's hard for me to believe they ever saw him play."


Bill Parcells (in 1995),

"Monk is headed to Canton downhill on roller skates"


Ronnie Lott, HOF inductee

"Art Monk was an example for Jerry Rice. That's what Jerry always told me.

There's nothing negative to say. He has the numbers, the catches, the championships.

You have a Hall of Fame for all it represents. I know he represents all that it's about. Integrity, love and passion for the game, community, what he gave back. Look how he conducted himself. Nobody I know deserves it more."


If he doesn’t get in it doesn’t make sense.”

- http://www.profootballhof.com/enshri...?story_id=2640

My guess as to who makes it would be

Cris Carter – Wide Receiver – 1987-89 Philadelphia Eagles, 1990-2001 Minnesota Vikings, 2002 Miami Dolphins

Darrell Green – Cornerback – 1983-2002 Washington Redskins

Randall McDaniel – Guard – 1988-1999 Minnesota Vikings, 2000-2001 Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Paul Tagliabue – Commissioner – 1989-2006 National Football League

Derrick Thomas – Linebacker – 1989-1999 Kansas City Chiefs

Bob Kuechenberg – Guard – 1970-1984 Miami Dolphins

This man should of been in a long long time ago. He was one of the most dominating Olineman of that time period, he was a pro bowler at every spot on the line (when being a pro bowler mattered). He was the anchor on the dolphins oline Every single time they went to the Super Bowl.

This man deserves to be in finally.
