Russ Grimm has just been elected to Pro Football's Hall of Fame. He'll stand beside Emmitt Smith and Jerry Rice.
Russ Grimm=Emmitt Smith=Jerry Rice?
Hell no. He never did.
The Hall was faced with a problem. The Redskins' "Hogs" deserve to be enshrined, but no one of them earned it. The Ravens have a "Colts" entry in their Ring of Honor. It includes, if I remember correctly, eight numbers.
That was the correct resolution for the Hogs. The problem is that the HOF voting is very well defined. There is no room for cutesy picks. The selectors were tasked with picking none (the correct choice) or one (Grimm was not the best player, but he was also a head coach).
They chose to shit the bed and pick the dude who had two jobs.
So for two years in a row, un-derserving Redskins will be "enshrined" while better players languish.
