Pro Football HOF – Class of 2012

Posted: February 5, 2012 by hofworthy in Chris Carter, NFL

The finalists are announced:

  1. Curtis Martin, RB
  2. Cortez Kennedy, DT
  3. Willie Roaf, OT
  4. Chris Doleman, DE
  5. Dermontti Dawson, C
  6. Jack Butler, CB (Pre-Modern Era)

It’s a shame that Chris Carter was not elected into the HOF yet again. This was his 5th year of eligibility. There appears to be an anti-wide receiver bias anyway, but Chris Carter was the victim of bad timing and overshadowed by arguably one of the best football players to ever lace up, otherwise known as the “Jerry Rice effect.” Carter was a phenomenal talent, and his stats over 16 years prove him to be one of the top 5 receivers of all time (at the time of his retirement). Time will be Carter’s ally eventually. It just wasn’t this time, but it soon will be.
