I welcome to our Super Bowl covered presented by these we are the hardest working people I'm going to call -- out of the Super Bowl because. Where is everybody at media -- do you see anybody around dinner just the three of we're here to tell the story short story it is important story holiday in 2013 classless. Because we'd like to go with the sex angle we're gonna talk about the biggest disappointments -- in the dugout who didn't get and that's where we go out. First I know Michael Strahan no Tim Brown -- Jerome -- -- Charles Haley of those names. Was the biggest surprise. I think a lot of everyone will be surprised Michael Strahan didn't get in the first year -- -- thinking this just goes to the point and we tents and 98. Players as. First ballot hall of famers maybe a little too easily. Michael Strahan is a hall of fame player this time will come. There's a big logjam. A defensive players and pass rushers he'll only 28%. Of the players and can art -- offensive players right now so we need to move along a lot these past threshers ends. That's what we did this year. Biggest surprise for you. -- -- I thought -- all of the hype and look at the NFL network all those guys. Michael Irvin. You know guys like that. Such Strahan as I mean I just thought that because all of the hype and these guys are still relevant. And Harold TDs and it enough thought strand them in my and I saw action in one. If these guys sticking around keep their names out here and keep their names available. That they would do it and that was Strahan and now he's you know after his career I. I really thought he was -- -- that's interesting trend you're talking about it that's something that you understood the kind of but maybe wasn't very fit I didn't. And I didn't understand -- because got like Charles Haley who. Who paid their schools who. You know it's a lot of these guys are not around they don't come around as much they're not it in the limelight and so you tend to forget about him and I think now. With -- the -- in on TV there around you talk about it constantly pushing it. You -- -- and that's and that he's got what word but I agree with -- a lot of these guys have been pushed back that deserve to be in and you know again. I can't I absolutely say that. Nobody and that is influenced -- who's on television. Analyst. It's not important don't consider that I do think there's sometimes a pecking order when it comes to certain positions that are on hand. For instance the wide receiver position three wide receivers or finalists here at the same three that open finalist the last few years. Finally at logjam with broken -- why was Chris Carter I was this year over Tim Brown over under read what the voters well I think ultimately came down to. Touchdown catches and make it a lot of bodies wide receivers were looking evening. Yeah. But that honestly that's when it came down I think when you look at that. Chris Carter 130 career touchdowns Tim Brown 100 Andre -- 87. We're starting in the -- -- Marvin Harrison comes up next year. Players that had huge inflated receiving totals because there's no shock rule on the things that make it easier for them right to get separation. It's time to break that logjam ultimately between history the touchdown receptions over the careers we'll push it over for Cris Carter I had a wide receiver out jabbing at the bit to jump on those -- you know I'm not. Big statistics to be honest with you because. I played in a situation where you can pass stats mean you can put yourself an opera and situations. And if I had to put a guy and will be under read just because of what impact he had on the Buffalo Bills and Eagles. That those teams getting to the Super Bowl the impact that team you know Cris Carter on the other hand he put up big numbers he's definitely some reckoned with it. But again you know and I know amassing a -- to respect the best -- you would just from what I'm saying is you see the governor on TV -- didn't and it can be totally in left field. But again Chris slaughter him it's very good point but -- -- in the third touchdown well again I'm not a stat guy I try to look at every. I think Andre Reed and it would they can win a Super Bowl. Anyplace cold weather -- well I'll play and I a lot of weight -- hiking accident that -- and yes a lot of things Andre -- in my opinion. Of all the players it did get. Review cap yes. My goodness. And asked him if that's. Plus I love the offensive linemen in my mind those guys passed every eye test I needed area and Jonathan Ogden with the greatest players of their time at their positions at guard and tackle the greatest pulling our area on. You know I'm not in with prototypical. -- I those players to me very deserving to get an. Very happy to see. You. Have to go -- -- essentials I thought it. Got somebody from the home team gets to all the behave you know I didn't know thing but I mean. But not just because he's from the home team like bigamy area doubles. And twenty -- It. Beat that were rattled and let's talk about in this may have -- and all of that. Area with a huge order so it. It means that you know went to the Super Bowl offensive line that was incredible what you knew -- Troy -- here to actually -- I might or by. Smith. Favorite yes let's protect those guys area. I like -- -- the players that did make the class of 2013. Weren't sent. And Cris Carter I think hopefully -- dispels this misperceptions. It about that if -- unpopular with the media are not good character guys that we don't consider those players. That's not true this proves it this year Warren -- got in his first ballot. Yeah I -- Cris Carter waited his turn. But that these players deserve to be in the whole thing was that something that the room considered that you didn't want to consider it was -- -- -- I feel a lot about that during arguments are we going out of our way to not consider that -- -- Each man had a compelling case to be in the hall of fame they belong -- can't announce their time. We think he's so much talking players great players of past and present Super -- Robert presented by -- making keep it on done right here at -- stack up.
