And since the Rams were losers for quite some time, he never really shined. Even win the Rams started winning, Holt took over as "the main guy". Wide receivers have a hard enough time getting in the Hall of Fame anyways. So don't be surprised when his name isn't called when he's finally eligible.
There is no point in really debating this, but I'd be willing to bet everything I own that Bruce is making the Hall. He will finish top 5 in catches and yards, that means he is in. Curtis Martin will also make it in, at some point.

He might make it in one day, I'm not debating that. I'm saying it might be a very long time before he gets in. Which contradicts your point of saying it won't be a problem. Obviously the more it's delayed means there's something wrong. Hence, a problem. He might be dead by the time it happens. Doesn't matter how good his "stats" were. His impact on the field wasn't as great as other wide receivers around the league during his prime and even on his own team in my opinion.

Default Mile High Salute to Rod Smith

When I think of a team football player, I think of Rod Smith. Smith always put team above himself. He never complained when he didn't get the football. He would just block down the field for Terrell Davis, or take double coverage with him to open up somebody else.

I am tired of all of the me first players being talked about as Hall of Famers, but not guys who just put team first and win. Yes, Rod Smith didn't toot his own horn, so I will toot it for him. He belongs in the Hall of Fame and I believe he will eventually get in after a brief wait.

Yes, it's quite rare to get a player like him with very good manners, and big play ability.
