The Hall of Fame voters, as they often do, did a superb job with the Hall of Fame voting. Most of the time the voters make the right call.
But they're making a mistake with former Buffalo wide receiver Andre Reed.
He deserves to get in on talent alone. He's fifth all-time with 951 career receptions and ninth in total receiving yardage with 13,198. So in catches and yardage he's top 10. He was, at times, devastating to defenses.
I covered a large portion of his career and there were few wide receivers of his generation that scared defenses like Reed did.
The problem I have with Reed being kept out is that all of the other great Bills are going in. Bruce Smith, Jim Kelly, Marv Levy, Thurman Thomas and Ralph Wilson are now all Hall of Famers.
I'm not sure how you can put all of those outstanding Bills in and keep out Reed.
Reed was as big a part of that Buffalo dynasty as any of those players.
I believe this was his fourth attempt to get in. I get the feeling he might end up being the only Bill not to make it.
And that's just wrong.
