Yes, Monk is way down on the list NOW. But it took a very long time for his receiving records to be broken. He was a 100 reception leader before it was really a big deal.

Must... control... urge to kill.

When Monk broke the all-time receptions record, it was 820 receptions. That was a measure of the way the game was played. By being the first to exceed that number (and by 120 catches), he was a trailblazer for the receivers of today. The first with a 100+ catch season, the consecutive games with a reception record holder at his retirement (since beaten by Rice) - these are the things that made Monk respected.

Re: Rod woodson can't believe how ignorant Peter King is.

King did say earlier this year that he would rethink his stance on Monk because of all the support he has received. King has stated his reasons and stood behind his decision which I do respect but disagree. If he is now willing to listen and rethink his view on Monk we do have to give him some credit. I'm not saying he was right only that he stood by how he felt even under the scrutiny he has received.

I hear what you are saying and agree the game was different back then. I think King's problem is that the record is for receptions, not TD receptions, and I think he is not quite certain that catching a lot of balls makes one a HOF receiver.

By the way, Monk is now 5th on the reception list behind Rice, Chris Carter, Time Brown & Andre Reed. Of that list I think only Rice is HOF material.

Nice to see Woodson giving Monk some props. Monk needs more people speaking out like that for him.

Do we respect Peter King for saying he would rethink his stance on Monk this year, or do we excoriate him for walking into that meeting with his mind made up for each previous year?

That's right, I said "excoriate". Look it up.

Re: Rod woodson can't believe how ignorant Peter King is.

Sports writers should not be involved in the HOF selection process. I have said this several times on other threads, having a journalism degree and being a sports writer does not mean you know anything about football. Sports writers, like most fans that never played the game, only care about glamour stats like scoring, sacks or int's. They do not understand the game enough to appreciate other aspect of the game like physically beating your opponent on a run play. Art Monk was a big physical receiver and great run blocker, he frequently took on and handled DB's and LB's so Riggo and E. Byner and could get all the headlines. That does not show up on a stat sheet or in a Monday morning article.
