AJ's best chance at the HoF is to continue making the case that he's one of the top 3 WRs to play during his career. The more crazy stats they can pull up where he's the only one to do it (or just he and Rice) the better.
My heart agrees with you, but my brain says it's gotten much tougher for WR's since the NFL became a pass-dominant league.
