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.
rskin72: Wonder who else was injured today. Schreff….

Carnack: Dunbar lost his mind
Oct 14, 2018 15:08:20 GMT -5
Carnack: still very much a WIP
Oct 14, 2018 15:08:44 GMT -5
rskin72: Yep....we are. But we need to beat Dullass and NY. The Fecals will be a tough nugget.

Carnack: we match up wel and play the eaglestough every year. Its teh Cowboys we have a hard time getting by

rskin72: AS still has some growing pains with his receivers. Just not totally in synch. And God only knows it seems like every team musters a rush against us
Oct 14, 2018 15:10:04 GMT -5
rskin72: Yea, I will agree with you about the fecals and turds....the Gits also seem to have our number
Oct 14, 2018 15:10:34 GMT -5
rskin72: Or KC's number to be specific
Oct 14, 2018 15:10:44 GMT -5
Carnack: we will at the least split with the boys and the giants this year, though I think we will sweep the giants..the Eagles are the best team in the division and we will have to bring our A game to beat them.

rskin72: And hopefully have some folks back from injury. Need to be at full strength....or close to it
Oct 14, 2018 15:12:33 GMT -5
Carnack: we just need to get this secondary some experience without losing....its obvious they are very raw
Oct 14, 2018 15:13:34 GMT -5
rskin72: we should sweep the Gits. Manning has looked bad. But he does have OBJ...and their rookie RB looks very good
