Marvin Harrison’s Hall of Fame Chances Get a Boost from Cris Carter
For years the backlog of incredible receivers awaiting enshrinement in the Hall of Fame has been an embarrassment to voters.
The writers who vote for the Hall couldn't break the log-jam caused by Andre Reed, Tim Brown and Cris Carter. As the room broke into factions each defending one particular player over the others, the line of quality players got longer.
Outstanding players like Jimmy Smith and Rod Smith couldn't even get a hearing because obviously superior candidates were blocking the way, leaving everyone unable to cross the threshold of football immortality.
Meanwhile, Marvin Harrison drew ever closer to the ballot, threatening to make the situation even more complicated.
Mercifully, Carter's recent election now opens the door for Harrison and other great receivers to eventually get in.
