    Yup, this is BS but I'm not giving up hope because I know he belongs there an eventually everyone else will figure it out.

    The Buffalo Bills organization should make this year the year of Andre Reed. Honor the guy throughout the year and make the push for him to get in. I don't see how a little help from the organization can hurt, he deserves it. Just my thoughts.

    Different era today, look at the numbers of some of the WR's who did get in from the same era:

    Andre Reed
    951 Rec
    13,198 YDS
    87 TDs

    Monk 940, 12,721, 68
    Irvin 750, 11,904, 65
    Lofton 764, 14,004, 74

    Give me a freakin' break, how is Andre Reed not in the HOF with 7 Pro Bowl appearances and 4 Super Bowl appearances? Numbers. Right.

    Andre has been a finalist now seven times, that makes him 0-11 on Superbowl weekend, this is the fourth straight year that he made it to the final ten. The man made his living going over the middle when that meant something. This is a joke. He should be in.

    Disgusting joke.

    Disgusting.

    Andre is the Rush of the football Hof. Should've been in loooooong ago.

    Although the year, Rush finally made it into the rock n roll Hof. This gives me hope for Andre.

    Only if he won a Super Bowl he would be in.

    It's not surprising. He's a borderline HOF type player who probably should be in, and he probably will get in either in 2014 or 2015. Carter retired as a statistical leader at his position, so he was going to get in ahead of Reed. Reed and Tim Brown are the last two "marginal HOF" WRs in this logjam, and my money says Reed gets in and Brown doesn't. But I've been saying it for 3 or 4 years now, we needed Carter to get in so that it opened up some room to get Reed in afterwards.

    Are those numbers on Lofton correct? He averaged 18.77 yards per catch. That's amazing.

    i dont know why tim brown sounded off and made conspiracy theories about super bowls all this week . i always thought of him as a stand up guy before and it will only hurt his chances for next year if it comes between him and reed for a wr entry. i would have held out parcells this year because im surprised that voters considered him finished to be a certainty.

    Reed needs to get a job working for ESPN or NFL Network. That seems to be the way to get in nowadays.

    These asshat media electors choose their friends and ignore the rest.
