Russ Francis was a monster... the problem is... Smith should have been in the Hall while Francis was still playing...

Let's simplify things. Smith revolutioned the position of TE. That qualifies him for the HOF.

Yes... Jerry Smith was Shannon Sharpe, before Shannon Sharpe was Shannon Sharpe...

Good grief.

Really enjoyed the read, Trey. I thought about another reply. Glad I didn't. You did way better than I would've.

Not true that Francis was better than Smith-- check stats, my memory, ect. Also not true that he was omitted because he was gay. He was omitted because he was a Redskin, a team too little respected over the years. Think of Larry Brown. His exclusion, so far, is a cloud over the whole HOF process. There are also many other Redskins who have been dismissed with prejudice, as has been pointed out.
