Politics of some kind must be playing a part in all of this. As far as I know Reed has never been involved in any off field activity that could in any way discredit the league. But maybe someone who has a say in what takes place when the final list is compiled every year has it in for him. Before you go accusing me of creating a conspiracy theory let me remind you this has now happend six straight years to probably the second greatest run after the catch receiver ever! Something just doesn’t sound right about this when you take the time to focus on it does it people? Something about it alters the letters after F from ame to rauds and it’s not even a subtle change at that! Let me also point out that Reed did his damage on the grid iron during a time when defenders were allowed to play defense! Could you imagine Andre Reed lining up in the slot under todays NFL rules? If you think Wes Welker’s a hand full then Reed would be a nightmare, cause Welker can’t lace Reeds cleats up let alone be mentioned in the same breath as him. I’m just being real, this guy constantly turned seven yard catches into eighty yard touchdowns without the assistance of a whimpy illegal contact rule to keep defenders off of him! In fact when Reed played DB’s could ride WR’s all the way down field as long as they did’n’t interfere with the catch attempt.
Yes the league was alot more balanced in Reed’s era in terms of what a defense could do to stop an offensive player and yet he was almost as unstoppable as the motion picture by Denzel Washington! Yes there were other players who had to wait a while but I feel that because of where Reed dominated the game from (which was the slot) he should’ve gotten special consideration. He made his living over the middle during a time when receivers were scared to death to venture there and he gets no love for it. THAT’S A DAM SHAME! Yeah I said it, somebody needs to say what I know he wants to publicly say so bad but he’s just to class of an act to do so!! To the Hall Of Frauds this is what you will be known as until you make this right because as of now it’s as dead wrong as the track recorded by the late great music icon “The N.O.T.O.R.I.O.U.S. BIG”! So I say once again to Mr Andre Reed please don’t be dismayed by the Hall Of Frauds, you can’t keep a good man down forever, they will haft to recognize your greatness soon or take countless blind side hits from the likes of me and every knowledgeable football personality out there! GO BILLS!!!!
