As the title states, the line for wide receivers getting into Canton is still pretty long – and getting longer:
“Next year’s Hall of Fame ballot will be the first year of eligibility for Colts receiver Marvin Harrison. Statistically, he has the edge over both Brown and Reed in career receptions and touchdowns catches, while trailing Tim Brown in receiving yardage by less than 400 yards. Harrison is admittedly a long shot to get in first-ballot, but he’s certainly a strong enough candidate to split the votes three ways once again.
Should none of the three be inducted then, we’re in an even deeper hole come 2015, which is former Rams receiver Isaac Bruce‘s first year of eligibility. Throw in Hines Ward the following year (though his resume pails in comparison to the rest of the field) and Terrell Owens in 2017, and you’ve got a serious problem on your hands. Don’t even get me started on Randy Moss.”
