Darrell Green is my favorite football player of all time.  As a Redskins fan since the age of 7, I could count on two things: 1) The Redskins would break my heart and 2) Darrell Green would be in the line up, matched up with the best receiver, week in, week out.  He was really a no brainer.  Great football player and Great man.

WHY HAS IT TAKEN THIS LONG FOR ART MONK TO GET IN THE HALL OF FAME?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

Well, it’s not like he held any records!  Wait, what, he held the record for most receptions when he retired.  And he was the first player to get over 900 receptions for a career. 

Well, he didn’t win any Superbowls!  Wait, he won 3.  The same as fellow Hall of Famer Michael Irvin.  And this is where I get mad.  Michael Irvin made it on his third year and MONK HAD TO WAIT 8!!!!!!  Monk has more receptions (940 to 750), yards (12,721 to 11,904) and touchdowns (68 to 65).  So tell me, how does he have to wait 8 years.  Maybe Irvin got points for snorting coke off of hookers during the season? 

Monk played most of his career before the 5 yard bump rule was established and when the run dominanted the league.  The Redskins were known as a running team and he still put up top ten all time numbers.  Just doesn’t make sense.
