The Fine Fifteen
8. Washington (11-7). Dan Snyder put out a statement Saturday critical of Art Monk not getting into the Hall of Fame. That really helps, Dan.
Ten Things I Think I Think
1. I think these are my quick-hit thoughts of the Hall of Fame voting:
a. The guy I got ripped most for before the voting was Art Monk, because I don’t support him.
d. Heard two media guys talking in the media center Sunday. Guy one: “Monk got screwed again. Ridiculous.” Guy two: “I say it all the time — if you screw guys in the press and don’t talk to them and treat them like crap, it’ll come back to haunt you.” Absurd, absurd, absurd. No factor. In fact, Monk is admired for his dignity, soft-spokenness and class.
e. For all of you who follow such things, I heard a “Hey, Peter” Friday night at the hotel. I looked over and there was Joe Theismann. We’ve had a tad of a disagreement over Monk, and Theismann told Dan Patrick that I had too much control over the room. Totally silly, of course; I’m one of 39. Out of respect for Theismann’s stature, I brought his main points about Monk into the room on Saturday morning. It did no good. Monk didn’t make the cut from 15 to 10.
