    Thrilled Cliff Harris made it. It’s a crime Drew didn’t. Pearson was a 4 time ALL PRO, 3 times a FIRST TEAMER, was a member of the ALL 70s team, played in 3 SBs, has one ring, and had the iconic “Hail Mary” play. I just don’t get why he’s not a HOFer.

    Very happy for Cliff Harris aka Captain Crunch. Him and Charlie Waters made a great pair in the secondary.

    And he and Lynn Swann were named to the all-decade 70s team.

    One of the two best receivers of the 70s is not in the Hall of Fame.

    How?

    At some point, the HOF became a stats game. The newer media who vote have little conception of what the NFL was like in the 70's.

    Another great case for my constant campaign against stats. They mean so little.

    Drew Pearson and Cliff Branch should have gone in over every single player they just chose, and 50 before them.

    I can only hope they want to honor Drew next year when the class is much smaller than this reset they're doing right now.

    Good for Cliff but Drew needs to be in, its gotten ridiculous, he has 2 or 3 of the most iconic plays in NFL history. Greatest clutch receiver I ever saw.
