This link, though moot now that Art has been given his birthright (see my av sig ), does an awesome job pulling together of the compelling reasons Art should have been a first ballot inductee and why the naysayers were political gaming fools. Stat/Chart fan alert.
Sadly, I'm not a season ticket holder, but I was able to attend the MNF game vs. the Broncs when Art broke the all-time mark (Columbus Day night, 1992 - no?).
When I think of the lineage - from Mitchell to Taylor to Jefferson to Monk - the Skins had at wideout, it was just an embarassment of riches during my formative years of fandom for the Skins.
Of those 4, Jefferson and Monk remain my all-time favorite Skins' wideouts. Did you know Roy (my pop's name) played both ways at Utah, and that he was a Defensive End when lining up on Defense? He also was a great return man for the Steelers, I believe, before coming to the Skins.
He wasn't HOF worthy, necessarily, but man did I love Roy Jefferson. And of course Art as well. The Skins need to find their next guy like that in the coming 2011 draft.
cooley47: Goff continues to stink. The D has done their job.

rskin72: The Lambs O just cannot get into sync. Limited rush attack, and Goff is not in any rhythm at all

rskin72: sooner or later the Lambs D will give...or they will make a big play. Either way the Lambs D right now has to win the game for the team

cooley47: No guarantee you ever get back to this game. Sorry but Goff can’t get it done. McVay should consider getting a veteran QB in offseason.

rskin72: Wow....238 vs 80 yards of offense....

cooley47: And yet only down 3!

rskin72: Gotta be something different that will break a big play. Maybe special teams...
Feb 3, 2019 20:56:07 GMT -5
rskin72: Going quicker now
Feb 3, 2019 20:58:49 GMT -5
rskin72: maybe getting some confidence

kaiser: bs holding call...

cooley47: I thought it was a late hit in Goff

cooley47: Steratore is a Pats guy so he thinks good call
Feb 3, 2019 21:31:48 GMT -5
cooley47: Horrible throw
Feb 3, 2019 21:41:52 GMT -5
kaiser: well he goffed that up!

SkinsTim: A first round pick for a guy that was terrible last year and his team is ready to move on from? No chance. They'll be luck to get a 2nd or a 3rd. I'd give up a 2nd for him and call it a day.
