You do realize that wasn't Jacoby that playing that day. That is a common mistake most people make. I think you are right, people THINKING it was Jake that got beat has held Jake back from getting in so far.

There are plenty of videos where Lawrence Taylor is running right by Joe Jacoby and getting to Joe Theismann or Jay Schreoder. I also personally saw them on TV back in the 80's. Taylor did that to everyone but it seems that Jacoby was always starring in them.

Re: Question: why isn't Gary Clark in the HOF?

The argument now seems to be that Clark doesn't have the numbers and a lot of receivers have passed him. Regardless of that being true my argument is if you compare Gary Clark's numbers to that of Michael Irvin, they are very similar. And the fact that Clark not only scored in 2 SBs, but has two rings.

Howabout Jerry Smith, he had insane numbers in his era. He doesn't measure up to todays TEs, but it was a different game then.

Re: Question: why isn't Gary Clark in the HOF?

Gary Clark was the toughest receiver I've ever seen, he loved going down the middle didn't mind getting hit and wasn't a pussy like say Jerry Rice who always ducked. He always made the Madden toughest player awards for a reason, even Madden used to say he was the toughest. Loved Clark!

Just check how many times Gary made the all Madden team starting 1986 into the the early/mid 90's

You're right. Gary was a very underrated player which is why he hasn't been considered for getting into the HOF. As I said before, he has the numbers because his career stats compare evenly with Michael Irvin's career stats.
