Rod Smith now eligible to get screwed by the HOF in 2013
It's ovuh! The greatest wideout in Broncos history has made it official.
Is this really a shock to anyone? I mean, he hasn't played in two seasons. Did anyone out there actually think Rod would come back and play again at his age with an artificial hip? Of course not, which is why I'm having a hard time understanding why people are expressing shock and sadness over this. He's been retired for two years.
Anyway, Rod was excellent, a tough guy, a hard worker, a class act, etc., etc. Anything positive you could say about a football player you could and should say about Rod.
Based on his numbers, he should be in the Hall of Fame. That said, since he didn't play for Pittsburgh or Dallas, he likely wont make it.
Good luck, Rod. End of an era.
