Congrats, Swannie!

"Lynn Swann was an idol. It would amaze me how he could fly through the air and make those catches. I'll never forget the one versus Dallas. It was the greatest catch I've ever seen."
-- 49ers wide receiver Jerry Rice --

Lynn Swann DESERVES to be in Canton
"I have a hard time putting 19 Steelers in the Hall of Fame,"
-- Peter King, misguided HOF Voter

Lynn Swann is an immortal. He possessed so many intangibles... singular abilities which no other receiver before or since has demonstrated. Swannie was the greatest big-game receiver of all time, hands down. He defined the position for a generation of players and fans. Yet, he is being excluded from the Hall of Fame by a misguided, stats-driven voting panel.

The Hall of Fame isn't just about "how many," it's about "HOW." It's the stage on which the player performed, his impact on the game, the style with which he played the game, and the legacy he left behind. Swann's induction into his rightful place in Canton is long overdue.
