Not that this is a news flash or anything-it’s not. But there’s literally nothing else Bears-related to discuss at the present time.
As we know, despite experts feeling that this was finally his year, Richard Dent again failed to make the Hall of Fame in voting Super Bowl weekend.
Up until this year, even I thought that Dent for Hall of Fame may have been a stretch. He was a great defensive end, no doubt, but there were a couple others of his era that had better statistics (Reggie White). But now that those guys have made the Hall of Fame, and now clearly even the experts think that less qualified pass rushers are being elected (Fred Dean and Rickey Jackson), I can’t quite figure out what gives.
Or maybe I just needed one extra year for me to reflect on how good Dent really was. Just last weekend I started watching a DVD of highlights of the 1990-1992 seasons I acquired several years ago and never had time to watch, and now I’m recalling how dominant he was. The amount of passes he intercepted as a defensive lineman was remarkable.
So what do you think? What’s holding this up?
