Art Monk and Darrell Green Elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame!

Art Monk is finally going to be enshrined in the Hall of Fame!

It almost makes the wait worthwhile to have him make it the same year as Darrell Green, not to mention one-time Redskins coach Emmitt Thomas. Now if we can just get Russ Grimm in to represent the Hogs, we might have a real representation of the team that won three Super Bowls in nine years.

Congratulations to Art and Darrell!

    Dude - I know you're probably at rehearsal and all, but I gotta see some thoughts on what was perhaps the most exciting Super Bowl I've EVER seen! All sympathies to my friends in mourning today (Scotto, after my UVA Cavaliers gave up 17 points in the Gator Bowl to lose by 3, I am sure you're suffering as I was in December), that was just one incredibly hard fought, well played game. It was everything a Super Bowl should be, but rarely lives up the promise.

    I'm baffled at why Belichek ran out on the field before the official final whistle (Was he confused? Just embarrassed or angry and not willing to stay until the end? Not sure). But big time kudos to Tom Brady, Randy Moss and other Pats for having the class to praise the Giants in post game interviews. In so doing, to me, they TRULY proved themselves champions.

    Well, they prooved themselves to be good sports, I don't know about champions.... Eli and Strahan and Toomer and a few others hold that particular title.

    And good for the writers for installing Art Monk into the Hall. I think he deserves it. Green was a no brainer first ballot HoFer.

    Monk was the all-time receptions leader when he retired. That's it; that's the deciding factor. When his career ended he had the most catches ever. Done. Should have been a first-ballot Hall of Famer. I don't begin to understand the logic behind not voting him in before now. Yes, he was primarily a possession receiver. So what? He was the greatest possession receiver ever.

    As for the Super Bowl, I didn't see it. I had a rehearsal. I don't feel qualified to make much commentary on it. I did watch highlights on ESPN a few times, but that's the best I can do.

    You want some commentary? I think Bill Belickick didn't do much to dispel the idea that he's a classless bully when he left the field, Randy Moss-style, before the final whistle. I don't care what the context is. Unless you have explosive diarrhea, you stay on the damn field until the final whistle.

    Anyone who says the Manning-to-Tyree 33-yard pass wasn't the greatest play in Super Bowl history is crazy or a moron or both.

    Good for the Giants. I hate them slightly less than I hate Bill Belichick. Yes, I've matured enough to recognize that I don't hate the Patriots, I just think Belichick is a cheating, bullying baby.

    How 'bout them '72 Dolphins?
