    What about Jim Plunkett, the ONLY Two-Time Superbowl winning QB not in the Hall of Fame. Not to mention Kenny Stabler.

    @Eric...Andre Reed isn't the only wide receiver waiting in line. Cris Carter and Tim Brown remain on the outside looking in at this point, too. I think Carter and Brown are more deserving than Reed, but you raise a good point. The Hall of Fame voters tend to favor players who've won rings and play on teams in large markets. Neither Carter, Brown, nor Reed ever won a ring. What sucks about the Hall voting is that Hines Ward may get in before Carter, Brown, or Reed or all three.

    @eric, andre reed hasn't made it yet because its hard to pick the receivers to get it now a days, it took art monk over a decade to get in. modern day receivers are going to have to wait awhile to get in.

    How is it that Jim Kelly and Thurman Thomas are in the Hall of Fame but Andre Reed keeps getting passed up? It took all three of them plus some to win 4 AFC Division Championships in a row.
