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.
Chris Carter didn't get in right away because he's an ******* who pissed off too many people on his way up.

Part of Tim Brown's issue was the way he played three lousy seasons at the end of his career. (Same thing with Isaac Bruce & Andre Reed) Andre is on pace to crush all but Brown's TD numbers.

Isaac Bruce also has a dearth of All-Pro and Pro Bowl selections to contend with.

Andre Reed's total yds might be considered low for the seasons played when all is said & done as well.

Randy Moss makes it easy.
Marvin Harrison does as well.
Terrell Owens makes it, but maybe not on 1st go-round for attitude.

Andre's biggest fault will be lack of TDs. The best cure for that is a lot of late-career TDs so that the last years are fantastic in the voters minds. We can also hope they factor in the non-pass-happy offenses he's played in (Unlike Moss, Bruce and Harrison)
