Marvin Harrison's Hall of Fame speech

Recommended Posts

This is kind of old, but I was recently watching Harrison's Hall of Fame speech, and found his mention of Manning (8:52 mark) a bit surprising; he barely said anything about Manning. I just figured he would have a little more to say. He had a more ttonsay about just about everyone else that he  mentiones. He played like 85 percent of his career with Manning and he was a large part of his success.

 

Anyone else find his tepid thanks to Manning interesting, or peculiar? Also, I wonder what other Wide Receiver he was referring to when thanking ReggieWayne. (9:59 mark)

 

Odd.

Marvin is one of those Ricky Williams types. He's a different cat.

 

I noticed his son Marvin Jr recently was mentioned as going to Ohio State. Keep your eye on him Chris :goodluck:..

Would be amazing if he ever became a Colt

Marvin will always remind me of my grandfather especially his mannerisms during the speech.

I just didn't feel any true gratitude from Marvin when mentioning Peyton. Certainly felt gratitude from him when mentioning everyone else.

What a blessing to have 88,87,18 and 32 for all those years, its a shame we only won 1 title with all of that talent

Honestly, I thought he was similar with Peyton when dealing with all his other teammates.  He was brief about all of them.  He brought up Peyton first and said about as much about him as he did about Edge, Reggie, etc.

 

I think that's just the way Marv is, pretty quiet and reserved.  

 

If there was actually something to it, which there may have been, I wouldn't be shocked if it stemmed from Marvin's alleged involvements with a couple of shootings near his night club/car wash in Philly.  Peyton was interviewed about it and I remember he didn't really shine positive light on Marvin (I don't think he said much, just something like Marvin lives a different life away from the football facilities).  Could be Marv was disappointed Peyton spoke about it at all or that he didn't like what he said to the media.. but in all honesty, I think it was just Marvin being Marvin and not talking too much on a public platform.

I would have DIED if his speech had started "Im just here so I dont get fined"


And after that, he says, "By the way, has anyone seen a gun laying around here? I think it's an FN 5.7-caliber semi-automatic. It's not mine, but if you see it, let me know."

    • Thanks LOS for the pregame stuff. Go Colts!
    • Agree.  Last weeks game gave new definition to "flag" football, lol.
    • I respect Gill Brandt but I agree, Titans aren't even top 10. He is way off with that one IMO.
    • On the surface, this looks bad. However, there's always much more that we do not know.  A tiny tidbit of that is this--     He wasn't at home, but the home burglar alarm was supposedly tripped.  Police enter (probable cause stated) the residence and while looking for burglars find some powder somehow/somewhere they want to test? Does / was said item have to be in plain sight through a window for them to enter? Or can they claim they went in and were looking for bad guys when they 'stumbled upon the contraband?   Has he ever failed any NFL drug test?  Who else has access to that home besides Chung?  Chung will get a good lawyer to challenge this and there are likely multiple other issues we have no clue about.  It's cloudy enough I doubt the NFL does anything, at least for the near future.   Another grey area, this matter seems to be under the NFL substance abuse policy and not the personal conduct policy.   If so, this is an excerpt from a connected article covering it-   "First, nothing can be done until the charges are resolved. The league can’t, and won’t, conduct its own investigation and take action independent of the criminal process.   Second, Chung can’t be suspended with pay pending resolution of the charges. It’s simply not available under the substance-abuse policy. The Commissioner-Exempt list applies only to potential Personal Conduct Policy violations involving alleged crimes of violence.   Third, Chung will be subject to NFL discipline only if he ultimately is found responsible for a drug-related offense. This requires a conviction, a guilty plea, a no-contest plea, or entry into a diversion program. If Chung fights the charges and wins exoneration, the league can do nothing."   Chung might play all 2019 while the legal battle ensues. We'll just have to let the justice system play out here.   https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/nfl/patrick-chung-will-face-no-league-punishment-likely-for-a-while/ar-AAGbAoZ
    • Jarret Stidham, and Brian Hoyer.  It will be highly interesting to see what BB does...  recently he more often has only kept 2, with exceptions (IE: Garoppolo and Brissett for one).  He once kept 4, and the 4th stringer made #2 (backup) next season, and supplanted the #1 later and has become arguably the best QB ever to play.   Ironically, Hoyer is the guy who made Belichick comfortable enough to go to only 2 QB's, and now Stidham might phase out Hoyer for that spot.   https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/wholl-be-tom-bradys-backup-a-quarterback-controversy-may-be-brewing-with-patriots/
