These freaking idiots are actually debating as to whether or not Swannie should be a HOF'er. OMFG, are you kidding me? These idiots are beyond homers. Stand up Steelers Nation, we are being assaulted by idiots!!

Almost like it came out of the head of a Ratbird fan, or something.

Swann never had truly great numbers.

But his career was shortened by injuries.

He took a beating few receivers today could even imagine.

And he came up big in the biggest games.

I'm glad he's in.

But I also understand why it took him a while to get in.

I suspect Hines Ward will follow his path and take forever to get in but will finally get in.

Most of them grew up without really having a team to root for. They just don't understand the game and that it's ever evolving. They look at a guy like Swann who played in a different era and try to compare them to players of today. That doesn't work.

There's also a good deal of provincialism in there. Their players are great without fault and other team's players don't compare.

The bottom line is many of them simply are not educated fans.

Just to demonstrate my point, I saw a tread started over there by someone yesterday (the Friday before championship weekend) asking where they could go to buy Rats gear. :roll: That's got nothing to do with education, but it demonstrates the type of "fan" you're dealing with.

Why do people get bent out of shape over these things? It can be debated that he should not be in the HOF.

Enough said right there! SB X MVP! 3 of the better catches not only in SB history but NFL history IMO.

Swann is in because he was $$$ when it counted. He has four rings and a SB MVP in his lockup. His career was abbreviated by injuries (same as Jim Brown and Gale Sayers) and his numbers weren't through the roof because it was still a run-first game when he played. But Swann was a $$$ player who improved the status and stature of the Steelers and the league.

Hines will be in because he is $$$ when it counts. In a little over two weeks, he'll have two rings (hopefully) and a SB MVP in his lockup. He owns every relevant Steeler receiving record, even ahead of two HOF players from his own team. Hines is a $$$ player who improves the status and stature of the Steelers and the league.

Swann is in...Hines will be in...book it!!!

This guy makes it pretty clear why it's not really debatable.

To be fair, the Steelers were one of the first teams in the NFL with two 1,000 yd. rushers in the same season, and the seasons were 14 games long. Swann did not play in the era of hyper-offense, when every play was a passing play. The Steelers ran the ball most of the time. One cannot compare numbers of one era to another. He only played nine seasons and was instrumental in four Super Bowl victories. He was a Pro-Bowler three times, and was named to the all-decade team of the 1970s. He may not have been great statistically, but statistics don't always tell the story.

He's not the best receiver in the HOF, but I think he belongs.

As a matter of fact, he pretty much presents his case throughout the whole thread that Swann belongs in the hall. His numbers are comparable to WRs that played in his era and he has 4 rings in 6 of his 9 seasons.

you can't make sense to a fool. it is nothing but jealousy and you will never get around that.

when they say swann doesn't deserve to be in the hof, tell them ray ray doesn't deserve his freedom.


swann was before the ravens era, why do they care ? they're jealous. tell them to ask the cowboys, oilers and everyone else swann torched if he belongs. oh yeah, he torched the colts back in those days. baltimore colts used to get their asses kicked by the steelers too back then. another city our team owns.

Currently watching NFL network replaying the
December 14th game. Steelers are a good team and at home will beyond difficult to beat. Oh Well I believe we will be THE TEAM to beat next year


I think that's the only one over there using his head, stlrs_d. He's is pretty worried over the game this weekend too.
