I think he was 129.4 on the list and they simply rounded.
“Consideration”, eh? Impressive. Consideration was by the way what my friend’s dad would say to him when he asked for the keys to his ’65 Mustang, the old man’s pride and joy. He would say: “Don’t worry son, I’ll take it under consideration”. Needless to say, there we went on our Schwinns.
Anyway, that short yardage, first down machine built by Tom Brady and Associates should not be in the same constellation much less in littl’ ol’ Canton, as true HOF’ers, like, hmmmm, I don’t know, Jerry Rice? Lynn Swann? Don Hutson? Lionel Taylor? Raymond Berry?!
But I understand, your mathematical leanings force your imbalance in this equation, somehow linking quantity to quality. They are not the same thing.
Eh, you can obtusify all you want, but the fact of the matter is that you are wrong yet again on player evaluation!
As I recall, I said Welker would get consideration for the HOF, and you scoffed. I never said he would get in (and I doubt he will). But, getting on this list counts as consideration ... most players won't even sniff this type of recognition.
Oh, and I would take Welker over Swann any day. What did Swann have, four great catches in his entire career? Sure, they were in big moments. But Welker was better.
