    Yes, you are right. Carter should have made it by now, and IMO would have if he/we had won a SB win. There's no doubt it enters the minds of the voters, who are listed here: NFL HOF Selection Committee

    And I may be wrong, but I really don't think Sid does a good job talking up our guys.
    Sid didn't present for Carter (or Doleman). It was Mark Craig of the Star Tribune:

    http://www.startribune.com/sports/vikings/blogs/115387809.html?elr=KArksi8cyaiU9PmP:QiUiD3aPc:_Yyc :aUoD3aPc:_o8P77U

    As a member of the committee, I can't reveal anything specific that was said in the meeting about any of the candidates. I presented the cases for Carter and Doleman, and voted for them. I also presented the cases for Randall McDaniel and John Randle, who were selected the past two years.

    I can say there was, like last year, a lengthy discussion overall on the receivers and how Carter, Brown and Reed compared with each other in a number of ways, including postseason play. There also was much discussion about what in fact constitutes a Hall of Fame receiver when one isn't a slam-dunk pick like Jerry Rice was last year.

    Let's just say the logjam at receiver continues and is sure to resurface in 2012 in Indianapolis.

    Maybe its just cause he is a Hampton Crabber and from our area that I know of him and have done a bit of studying on him, but Chris has one hell of a resume when it comes to HOF credentials.

    Not sure about you, but I like it when a couple of old timers get the nod. Fun to look over a career that you didn't even know existed.
    You realize a that every single year a "couple of old timers" get voted into the HOF. I'ts a requirement.
    I am well aware of what happens each year at this time, unless of course you are asking Z.

    I hear ya on Irvin but you don't think Deon should have been a "First Ballot" guy?

    If you can get past the "Persona" and focus on his play, I'm not sure why you wouldn't agree with me that he deserved it.

    I remember one time when he was a Falcon. No one would throw to his side so he came up with a trick were he would run 2 or 3 steps away from his receiver in order to get a throw and still close the space and get the ball.

    Absolutely amazing.
