Re: Hail To The Finalists (Skins to HOF)

plaxico burress talked about monk today at media day. they asked him when did he start playing football and what number he wore. he said he wore #81 and they asked why 81. he said because of art monk due to growing up in virginia. then he went on to say monk needs to be in the hall of fame and it is a shame that he is not in and should have been in years ago.

Art Monk looooonnnggg over due. Would be great to see Green in the HoF this year as well. Heck, go ahead and throw Grimm into the mix as well. It's a shame that not more Redskins players from our glory years era isn't already in the HoF.

Re: Hail To The Finalists (Skins to HOF)

What a great way to celebrate the 25th anniversary of SBXVII (Jan 30, 1983) than Art Monk making the HOF. Monk deserves it and if not this year its a tough road ahead with Jerry Rice and Tim Brown becoming eligible next year. The longer he doesn't get in the more younger WRs will start becoming available and it will make the road tougher. With Doug Williams being honored at the Super Bowl, its a Redskins sweep on Saturday. All 3 get in!

I am hoping Grimm makes it. He is just overshadowed by Monk in people being upset.

He seemed PISSED that Art wasn't already in, and he explained himself pretty well, IMO.
I was glad to see a current player speaking out on Monk's behalf but I fear it might have been missed by more people because of in all the media day garbage.

Plaxico has got my respect. I already have my sign made for the induction ceremonies, it says: THE INJUSTICE IS OVER, ART IS FINALLY IN!!!

Re: Hail To The Finalists (Skins to HOF)

Why isn't Bobby Beathard in the HOF? He's been responsible or involved for 7 SB, going back to when he started in KC, Miami, Washington, SD. Here's a guy that's way overdo.

Re: Hail To The Finalists (Skins to HOF)

No other reciever in the HOF has better numbers than Monk. It has been argued that he doesn't belong in the hall because he doesn't have the numbers to support putting him in. Lets compare his numbers to the last reciever put in the HOF Michael Irvin.

1.Receptions- Irvin 750/Monk 940 thats 190 more catches than Irvin

2. Rec yards- Irvin 11,904/Monk 12,721 thats 817 yards more than Irvin

3. TD's- Irvin 65/Monk 68 thats 3 more than Irvin

4. Super Bowl Rings Irvin 3/Monk 3 their even on that

5. Pro Bowls Irvin 5/Monk 3 so Michael has 2 more there, so what.

who ever said Monk didn't have the numbers to be in the HOF apparently can't count worth a darn or just don't know football. The numbers speak loud and clear and so do we Redskins fans Mr. Peter "I don't think Monk belongs in the HOF" King. Yes Peter King of SI has led the charge to keep Art Monk out of the hall of fame. Shame on him he knows nothing about Art Monk's playing career it seems.

Or hated having Monk abuse his Giants during his playing career.

yeah, I was about to say...the Giants owned us back then...that's probably why King thinks he wasn't good, because that's all he remembers

Re: Hail To The Finalists (Skins to HOF)

Heres a link to an interview with John Riggins - he said he had talked with Peter King recently and King said it was not looking good that Art Monk was going to get in the HOF this year. Art Monk not getting in the HOF is getting more and more pathetic as each year passes....
