Tim Brown Not In 2012 Hall Of Fame Class


Will Tim Brown join the growing list of Raiders snubbed for Hall of Fame induction or will his time come? Of course, only time will tell. One thing we do know is that Brown will have to wait at least one more year.

Brown failed to make it into the final 10 for Hall consideration. Ahead of him are fellow receivers Andre Reed and Cris Carter, though neither of them made the final cut. Getting into Canton as a receiver is proving more difficult each year.

Makes you wonder how much longer Brown will be waiting.

You can’t help but wonder if there will ever be a day when Ray Guy is actually voted in. That seems like a pipe dream at this point.

Brown’s numbers are among the best for any receiver to ever play the game. Apparently that doesn’t factor in when it comes to getting Hall consideration. Plenty of record setting receivers are on the outside looking in while the likes of Lynn Swann have gained Canton induction despite meager production.

There truly is no formula to Hall of Fame voting, a process that frustrates many. Still, the mere fact that Brown is gaining yearly consideration says his time should come. There’s just no telling when that time might be.
