Re: Realistically, is AJ going to the hall of fame??
The reason Chris Carter and Tim Brown have not got in is simple. They were never the best WR in the NFL at any given time during their career. They were good players, some years as maybe a top5 player most years as a top 10 player at their position. They had long careers and thus put up numbers.
Dre will get in becuase for the last 3 years he has been widely considered the best at his position with his only competition being Fitz (Megatron too). 08 and 09 were monster years back to back and while he may never put up numbers like that again there is no reason to think he can't put up 1100 - 1400 yards a season for 4-5 more seasons barring injury.
In his only appearance in the playoffs he averaged 100 yds a game with 15.5 yards per catch basically at 75% (at best).
I think he bounces back to the tune of 1200+ next year too.
