Around this time of year, when all the HOF debates start, I always argue about how The NFL and the HOF voters have no method to their selection madness.When Swann and Stallworth are in the HOF and he isn't we have a confirmation bias problem.
Don't forget Gertie Hornswaggle or Bort Shattenpuff!There are lots of All-Decade players not in the Hall of Fame in fact of the 20 options almost all of them were on the All-Decade Team.
I like Drew but I would have taken Al Wistert or Beattie Feathers or Lavern Dilweg or Cecil Isabell or Bill Osmanski or Bucko Kilroy or Dick Barwegen...
I prefer the way they do it even though you get subjective entries in classes from a long time ago, but that starts to settle itself out in the years with only 5 inductees and lots of possibilities.Around this time of year, when all the HOF debates start, I always argue about how The NFL and the HOF voters have no method to their selection madness.
Pearson had 489 catches for 7,822 yds and 48 TDs in 11 seasons.
However, only 1 Super Bowl -- and no fancy slo-mo highlights set to orchestral music and John Facenda -- so he doesn't qualify for the Swann treatment with the HOF.
To be fair Drew and Swann played in 14 game seasons (not 16) and Drew was in the Top 10 of receiving yards 5 times in his career, Swann 3 times in the top 10 ...Colston only once (8th).Also should add...
look at Colston's career stats and look at Drew Pearson and Swann's stats. I get that it's not exactly comparable eras, but again, neither Pearson or Swann's stats are HOF-worthy.
Colston: 711 catches, 9759 yds and 72 TDs in a 10 season career. 1 Super Bowl
Swann (HOF): 336 catches for 5,462 yds and 51 TDs in a 9 season career. 4 Super Bowls
Pearson: 489 catches for 7,822 yds and 48 TDs in 11 seasons. 1 Super Bowl
-- and Colston never even made a Pro Bowl.
