Shannon Sharpe gets bent over the table

Call the National Guard! Shannon Sharpe got plowed in the ass.

That's some hearty bullshit right there. The fact that he's being considered as a receiver is such unbelievable, preposterous horseshit that it boggles the mind.

Was Shannon Sharpe a wideout? NO. HE WAS A GODDAMN TIGHT END! He lined up at the end of the line of scrimmage just like Kellen Winlsow did, just like Ozzie Newsome did, just like Tony Gonzalez does. I'm having a hard time understanding the HOF's justification for considering Shannon as a WR. Is it because he wasn't a very good blocker? Who gives a fuck? Neither was Winslow. He got in on the first try. Antonio Gates doesn't exactly pancake people either, but when he retires as the #1 receiving TE of all time, (like Shannon did) is the HOF going to fuck him out of a spot?

Unbelievable. There may be something to the "The HOF is anti-Denver" theory.

Other receivers fucked in the ass this year:
Cris Carter (2nd in NFL history in every major receiving stat)
Andre Reed (Top 5 in every major receiving stat)

Somehow making it in over the three guys mentioned above:
Bob fucking Hayes (not even close to the top ten in any major receiving stat). You know why he's in? Because he played in fucking Dallas.

Due up for a cornholing next year:
Tim Brown (3rd in NFL history in every major receiving stat). If Carter can't get in, Brown has no chance.

I think they gave it to Hayes also because of his track background. Heard the talking heads saying he was the first "game changer" at WR. of the greatest ever? No way.

I think the NFL HoF is slowly shifting to a Baseball HoF mentality. And we know their shenanigans. Are they the among the greatest ever? If so, put em in. Who cares about first ballot, unanimous, numbers versus previous, etc etc.

Complete crap. It's a travesty.

Honestly, it's not that big of a deal. First-ballot shoe-ins seem non-existent anymore. We all know he'll be in next year, and at worst case, it won't take him five to get in like it did for DT.

You're right. I'm sure he'll get in eventually, but there's some cache to being a first ballot HOF'er. Bragging rights among the HOF community. Shannon shouldn't have even been a question.

It shouldn't have taken DT 5 years either.

It's such an irritating process.
