What, me worry?
Hard to do this kind of stuff with a knee that locks up due to mensicus damage:
I'm going to say this. LeSean McCoy is just bitter because he knows there is no way he's getting into the Hall of Fame even with the ring he got with Tampa. He's an after-thought.
I think that Edelman SHOULD get in because he's been one of the league's best all-around players. He wasn't just a "slot receiver" . He lined up all over the place. He played Special Teams. He played Defense for part of a season. And yes, he's EXCELLED in the post-season ranking second only to Jerry Rice in numerous categories.
One of the toughest son of a ***** to ever put on a Patriots uniform. This man was absolutely fearless going across the middle. He didn't shy away from the big hit. The epitome of the mental toughness that defined what the Patriots were all about, during their Superbowl run from '15-'19.
The level of toughness and output that he and Welker exhibited was on a completely different level. A rare breed.
Lynn Swan won an extra SB, has 3 Pro Bowls (Edelman has 0) and a First Team All Pro and 2 Second Team All Pros (Edelman has 0). Swann also played 21 less games yet has more TD’s and only 1000 less yards in a less pass happy era,Someone else brought this up earlier (@upstater1 ?) but why won't the arguments used to get Lynn Swann in work for Jules. Obviously he was a critical element in the last three trophy wins, has a SB MVP, and had all the dramatic memorable catches.
If the goal was to compile enough stats to get in the HOF I'd understand but if it's to win championships you choose an Edelman type.
Anyway he doesn't need a yellow jacket. He has more game cred than a lot of those who are in.

I love Jules, but the WR position has been brutal for the Hall of Fame.
