carter: 1101 rec, 13,899 yds, 130 tds
aj: 706 rec, 9656 yds, 52 tds
tbh eventhough he should have a few good seasons left, i cant see him making it (as much as I want him to). imo his lack of tds will hurt him when its all time to make his case.....
I think he'll get in, but it's gonna take a good while for him to get in...sort of like it took for Art Monk.
But it's more than just his lack of TD's. Too many guys with the same impact & better career numbers have created a log jam at the position.
Tim Brown isn't in yet
Andre Reed still
isn't in yet..
Issac Bruce isn't in yet
Randy Moss will be coming eligible soon
Terrell Owens will be coming elgible soon
& this isn't even counting guys in his generation...guys like Marvin Harrison, Reggie Wayne, Steve Smith & Larry Fitzgerald who all will be at least as deserving as well.
& If guy like Chris Carter didn't get in on the 1st ballot you know AJ's gonna have a hard time getting in.
Snacks..aka John McClain is gonna have his hands full trying to argue for AJ to get in amongst all these guys that will become elgible in the next 10 years.
