In the past 8-10 years, there have been many WRs who seemed to be first or second ballot Hall of Famers but almost all had to wait longer. Some waited 6 or more years (Tim Brown, Art Monk, Andre Reed). Despite all being deserving of induction into the Hall, the voters selected only one receiver per year. I thought Marvin Harrison should have gotten in last year. They elected Tim Brown instead.
Hopefully the voters will elect both Harrison and Owens this year. They both deserve it.
