GIF's Top Ten Best Wide Receivers Not In The Hall Of Fame

Discussion in 'NFL General Discussion' started by BigBlueBruiser, Jul 10, 2010.

  1. Morgan is another good mention...he was a better receiver than Irving Fryar when Fryar first came into the league in 1984.

    But just like I mentioned earlier....there is quite a log-jam at the receiver position so there's going to be some HOF worthy players left out for a while. He should get some love too...but the list is stacked so I'm not sure where I would put Morgan in. Maybe in place of Fryar....not so sure.

    But this whole process makes the debating part much more interesting....:icon_cool:

    Rison's overall numbers should earn at least some looks for Hall of Fame candidacy.

    But what may ultimately prevent him from getting inducted besides bouncing around the league is his controversial comments and behavior off the field....including ripping Browns' fans in 1995 after lashing out from their impending relocation to Baltimore and booing him after a bad game against the Packers.

    "We didn't make the freaking move. So, for all the booers, heck you too. I'll be glad when we get to Baltimore, if that's the case. We don't have any home-field advantage. I've never been booed at home. Baltimore's our home. Baltimore, here we come."

    Also claiming he was better than Jerry Rice....saying he would make his own HOF.... and having his mansion burned down by his former girlfriend, the late Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes of TLC, resulting in the loss of all his possessions.

    But I hear he has his own football academy and is helping youth's improve their game to the fullest. It's good to hear he is giving back to the game by helping kids reach their full potential on the field and stress the importance of a good education.
